This was somewhat inspired by my Dad's dad ( my grandpa...). He was a two-fisted-hard drinking-gambling-ect...man's man. Anyhow, he died when I was seven ( the same year as Crosby and Elvis...it was a rough year). One vivid memory I have of him was his assortment of tattoos. he had a lady jiggling her goods, an anchor ( He told everyone it was for the Navy, but I find out later he was a Merchant Marine), and a butterfly. I always thought that was cool.
