Hey, There

My grandpa (Grandpa Lee) had nicknames for all of his grandkids. At family picnics, on dinnertime phone messages, in black pen scrawled across gifts of giant Hershey's chocolate bars, he referred to us by our nicknames.

He had a thick, Winston-tinged voice and he would always greet me with the same phrase: "Hey, there Gromyko."

It was so common and so casual that I never took any time to think about it while I was growing up.
