I originally wrote this piece for members of The Fraction Club, and LTP Weekly Subscribers, but decided that I wanted to share this one publicly, as well. I love[d] my Boppa, and he always supported Brandi and me in this LTP project. I was his first grandson, and it really is uncanny how alike we look.

I stole the picture of Arlo from Bree and Chad, because - let’s be real - they take way better pictures than I do.

For those of you who find yourself here today: if you’d like access to the audio/video podcast version of this letter, and a bunch of other things that I do more consistently than blogging here, you can join The Fraction Club or subscribe to the LTP Weekly for as little as a buck a month and help support this endeavor. Hopefully, I can make it worth your while.

Regardless, thanks for reading, and for caring about our lives, whether or not they have anything to do with the words that you hear on an album (even though, in one way or another, they all do).

Go hug your grandparents, and find a baby to squish. Have a beautiful week.
