TEXT: ABRAHAM SIMPSON
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
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.
