Hi kids! My name is Abraham Simpson but people call me grandpa. I was born in Wales eighty four years ago but I moved to USA when I was a little boy. As you can see I have got lots of wrinkles. I am one of the oldest people in my town.

When I became older, I met my wife Mona. She was a hippie and condemned social injustices. She was so rebel that she had to abandon the country. We got married and we had a son whose name is Homer. Now I have got three loving grandchildren and a fantastic daughter in law. 
In my adulthood, I was a brave soldier in the two world wars. It was a hard experience for me.

Today, I am living in an old people’s home. I have a quiet life there but it is really boring. I usually play cards with my friends, look through the window for a long time or I just wait for the telephone ringing. Sometimes  I take care of my grandaughter Maggie. People say that I am a bit clumsy because I often forget things, stubborn and that I fall asleep easily.
