This happy old man in my photographs is my very own grandfather. He is 86 years old and he's holding on well on his feet. Since my grandmother passed away, nine years ago, he lives with his three cats, Berlelun - there's a tradition concerning cat names. All the cats were named like this. The Berlelun family.
Living in a small village in Romania, his daily routine is taking care of the Berleluns, listening to radio, doing crosswords, which he really loves , and he never leaves his yard. Actually he likes being alone, but also enjoys home visits from us. He never speaks about death. Who takes care of him you may be asking? Well, his blood-related loving ones, my parents and my uncles. They visit him often, giving a hand  with daily chores and sometimes, as in this case, cuting his hair, making him a good looking grandfather.
