“Grandpa? Are you busy?”

Andy looked up from the contracts he was going over and smiled at his grandson. “Never too busy for my family. Come on in.”

Campbell sat down in one of the chairs. “I just want to ask a few questions.”

Andy nodded. “You can ask me anything.”

“How did you get into doing this?”

Andy leaned back into his chair thinking about it. “I had heard stories about the company that the family owned long before I was born. It had closed because of some problems that a family member had caused. The family had received some pretty bad press, and I wanted to change that. I wanted people to have good things to say about the family. I went to college and got my degree. That was not an easy task. The apartment your grandmother and I lived in was constantly needing things fixed. Plus we had your mother to keep us busy.”

Campbell listened to his grandfather. “Mom was born while you were in college?”

Andy shook his head. “She was born while we were in high school. Just a few weeks before graduation. I do not suggest you follow my example.”

Campbell shook his head.  “I’m not even close to ready to be a dad yet. I have years left before I get to that point, if I ever do.”

“You will have children someday. I’ve seen you with your sister. You will be a great father.”

Campbell shrugged. “What classes did you take in college?”

“I started with business classes then realized that I liked the design aspect also…a lot like you. I took a few of those classes and graduated with both a business and an engineering degree. I started this business just a few months after I graduated.”

Campbell thought about what his grandfather was saying. “The high school has a thing with the local college to where we can take college classes and it counts toward our high school credits also. I might look into taking a class or two. Graduation is pretty soon anyway, and then I can take more classes.”

Andy was proud of his grandson for thinking about school and his future already. “What do you want to do after you graduate?”

Campbell smiled at his grandfather. “I want to sit in your chair and run the company.”

Andy laughed at his answer. “You study hard and someday this chair will be yours.”
