With gentle visual humor, Jutta Bauer's simple story shows how Grandpa's charmed life may be due to someone special watching over him all along.
Grandpa loves to tell stories about his past. There was the time he was almost run over by a bus, the time he made a big dog cower with just one look, and all those scary street corners he passed by unscathed. From climbing the highest trees to surviving World War II and starting a family, Grandpa has led an unusually blessed life. But maybe it was more than mere luck that kept him safe. . . .
