Anyone that came in contact with him, could tell that was his biggest and most honorable trait. He knew when enough was enough, he knew when to leave the bar, and he also knew when his granddaughters wanted attention and affection from him. Growing up across the street from my grandpa, I was able to watch and observe him go through many stages of life. He was my biggest trainer of moderation, self-discipline, and love. He may not have always stopped when others thought he should and he may not have spent as much time with us as we thought we deserved, but he knew the right things to do for himself or other. I was so easily influenced as a child, that I was affected by the right and wrong things I would see happening. While my grandpa didn’t always do the right thing, he always showed me how it was wrong and what I could do to make it
| Growth in maturity is shown as both Billy and Old Bill show signs of growth as they help each other. Billy's growth is demonstrated as he becomes a 'different' individual from the beginning of the narrative poem showing positive thinking “sure there's hope in the world...even for hobos like us".
Finally, Bill and Bud are loving people who most people find likeable. They guided J.R. throughout his "broken" life, when they first met J.R., he stammered, " I was nobody" (3) and Bill and Bud took him under their care like loving fathers. For example, while J.R. worked at a bookstore, Bill and Bid would supply him with works of literature. "He brought the books into the stockroom and quickly ripped the cover off each one. It seemed to cause him pain, like ripping off a bandage" (4). Bill and Bud suffered though several hard tasks that caused them emotional pain, because they loved books and thought of it as a miracle. Through this action, Bill and Bud showed their affection towards J.R... Additionally, in support that Bill and Bud are loving people, they both made

Andrew Williams, an unbelievable man, was born and raised in Madison, served his country, and great brother and father to all.
In 1968 Bill began working for the Carnegie library in Homestead. This was the one job he loved the more then firefighting. At the time of his death, he had worked there almost 28 years. Bill started his library career out by assisting with gymnastic classes, and soon became an instructor for swimming lesions, teaching both adults and children. This is where we believe he gained a compassionate spot in his heart for children. During his career he encountered many children and teens but while teaching a gymnastic class to a child that was deaf, Bill quickly found himself in a challenging position. Being as compassionate for people as he was he made the decision to learn sign langue so that he could communicate with this child, and instruct her
“There are so many people who do things quietly,” Kathy Long said. “I was fortunate every day of my career to work with my father (Ralph Jones) and for my father to see how things got done.”
While I was reading pages 27 - 28, it made me remember certain events that occurred in my life similar to Joe Rantz. When I was around the age of four, my sister the age of three, and my cousin the age of nine we lost a dear beloved family member but unlike Joe Rantz who lost his mother we lost our grandmother. The worst feeling in life is losing someone who you're close to, who cared for you many times, and who you basically grew up with. Us three girls grew up with our grandmother taking care of us even if she herself had a job. While our parents were at work trying to provide us with the best life can give us. A night before thanksgiving dinner my grandmother wasn't feeling the best, so she took herself to bed. Her family worried sick insisted

With Bill, he had a goal of being at his daughter’s birthday party and celebrating it with her. However, with this situation, there were many obstacles to reach his goal. The goal he wanted wasn't achieved because after all the crimes he committed he finally saw his ex-wife Beth with his daughter at the Pier, which was not the birthday party instead it was his death. Bill died after pulling out the water gun. This shows that his actions were not great. In many other movies, you would see the protagonist to be the good guy and they usually reach their goals; however, with Bill he did not, he died by being shot over the Pier where he fell into the
Bill's fantasy of being like the Stone's may be shown by his actions of taking a bottle of Harriet's pills (14), and drinking and eating their food, with no qualms of invade his neighbors privacy (16). On page 15, Bill ""had the feeling that he left something" as he was closing the door to the Stone's apartment. It is likely that he felt he was leaving behind the false persona of who and how he wanted to live like.
Bill actions in the apartment show how much he wishes to live like the Stone's. As soon as he got in the Stones apartment he takes some of their personal things that would be of no use to him for example Harriet’s medication. “He found a container of pills and read the label Harriet Stones one each day as directed and slipped it into his pocket”(137). Also he makes himself comfortable in their apartment as if he lives there. He drinks from their drinks and he wears both Jim and Harriet’s clothes. He believes that by wearing their clothes he will become or live the life of the Stone's. There are several occasions where Bill looks himself in the mirror while he is wearing Jim’s clothes this shows bill might be imagining himself as Jim Stones. ‘He opened the closet and selected a Hawaiian shirt. He shed his own
When Bill for the first time walks over to feed Kitty he acts completely disrespectfully towards the Stones. He lays some of Harriet's prescription pills down in his pocket and he merrily drinks some of their whisky. When he returns home he gets the feeling of having left something back. He has this feeling because he knows it is wrong to sneak around in other people's apartment and behave like it is one's own he is therefore nervous for his action that might be tracked back to him. He omits telling his wife about it, but the question is also if there really is anything to tell? He
For example, using a leftover coffee can for loose nails or screws, or even washing and reusing a plastic zip-loc bag instead of throwing it in the garbage. Thrift shopping is a way of reusing someone else’s unwanted goods. As I spoke about in an earlier speech about thrifting, I included many locations and ways to thrift, also the benefits to the shopper and the donator. One place in particular was shopping at the local boys and girls club. I personally shop there, keeping my eyes open for a good deal. For example, the pair of jeans that I am wearing today was purchased from this store just a few months ago. I paid only $8.00 for this pair of Lucky Jeans and according to buckle.com, a retailer for lucky jeans the retail price is $99.00 that is a savings to me of $91.00.I am not the type to worry about name brands, but quality usually does cost more. If I can get a quality pair of jeans at a fraction on the price, I am glad to shop at the thrift store. I am thankful to the person that made the donation of the lucky jeans and they can benefit from that donation. According to the IRS webpage, IRS. Gov it explains that an individual can donate items like clothing, household furniture and furnishings, a car or boat, even taxidermy. The donations are appraised, by the donator, and recorded. At the time of filing taxes if the donation equals at least $500 for the year, the donator may take advantage of the
