The game of baseball has more family relationships than any other professional sport. Family Ties contains a wide-ranging compilation of information about the many relatives who have participated in major league baseball. Find out which major league players had roots in the Negro Leagues or the Latin American leagues. Abe has also had many relatives who he has mentioned in his stories several times.
Abe has also acted as a good father to Homer at times and has also acted as a good grandfather to Bart, Lisa and Maggie. However, he does not like cheekiness from Homer, Bart or Lisa; he also demands to be treated right and he reckons that he is just as important as the others.

- 1 • INTRODUCTION!
For forty-five years, Abe was a security guard. Within his elderly years, he was a Sprawl-Mart greeter in Eddystone Pa, a cartoon writer, and a traveling salesman of an aphrodisiac. Abe was not a particularly caring father to Homer, as evidenced at one point when he tells his son, "Homer, you're dumb as a mule and twice as ugly. If a strange man offers you a ride, I say take it!
Sexual Inadequacy ", in which Abe calls Homer an accident, years of pent up anger on Homer's part leads to a temporary estrangement. Due to the rough childhood he has endured under Abe, Homer takes every opportunity to ignore or eject his father, whom he placed in a dilapidated retirement home. Abe held a variety of postwar jobs, including a farmer during Homer's early childhood until the bank foreclosed. Abe was also a watchman at a cranberry silo for forty years.

He spent most of this time living in a house that he won on a crooked s game show until he sold it to help Homer buy a house for his family. Abe moved in with the family, but was sent to a retirement home three weeks later. Abe was also angered about Homer's role in ensuring of the Trappuccino incident, yelling "I'm part of the mob! However, Abe was shown to have genuine care for Homer, as seen in " Gone Abie Gone " when Homer was a boy, he was hospitalized after an accident at Abe's wedding where he married Rita LaFleur and decide to remain with Homer at the hospital, as she went to Europe for a tour instead of Abe going aside her.
He was married for several years to Mona , who became entranced with the hippie lifestyle after watching Joe Namath on TV. She became a fugitive from justice after she abetted in the sabotage of a biological weapons research lab on germs, owned by Charles Montgomery Burns.
Abe had no interest in this, instead focusing on the TV. Mona was forced to leave to give the two a better life. Abe tells nine-year-old Homer that Mona died while Homer was at the movies. Abe and Homer also don't seem to get along with each other, as seen in several episodes where they are usually arguing amongst themselves. Grampa Simpson is an old, grizzled, periodically incontinent and quite senile man to the extent of calling someone a fish tank.
He lives in the Springfield Retirement Castle , which is a sad, lonely place filled with demented, crippled and depressed old people a sign near the entrance says "Thank you for not discussing the outside world". Abe also informs Lisa that residents are not allowed to read newspapers because "they angry up the blood".
His closest friend appears to be Jasper , a fellow Retirement Castle resident.
He is also shown to be something of a crackpot, as evident by the following letter from "Bart the General":. Dear Advertisers, I am disgusted with the way old people are depicted on television. We are not all vibrant, fun-loving sex maniacs! Many of us are bitter, resentful individuals who remember the good old days when entertainment was bland and inoffensive.
The following is a list of words I never want to hear on television again. Number one; "Bra". Number two; "Horny". Number three; "Family jewels". He spends a good deal of his time writing letters of complaint. He once wrote to the President, complaining that there were too many states, and requesting that they get rid of three of them simultaneously insisting that he was "not a crackpot".
He also wrote to "the sickos at Modern Bride Magazine " about his disgust at not seeing "one wrinkled face" or "a single toothless grin" in the publication. He also owns a star American flag, because of his undefined hatred of the state of Missouri : "I'll be deep in the cold, cold ground before I recognize Missouri. He also is soundly rooted in his antiquated ways: "The metric system is the tool of the devil! My car gets 40 rods to the hogshead and that's the way I likes it.
He even supports tearing down the Simpsons's house in order to complete construction of the proposed "Matlock Expressway". He seems to believe Matlock is a real person, suggesting they call him in to solve real-life crimes: "I say we call Matlock. He'll find the culprit. Once, reflecting on his lifetime, he lamented it as terribly boring and full of unruly teenagers, but then decided it was alright because "we did have two shows with Andy Griffith.
Grampa also had a habit of telling stories about his past though a lot of the time these stories didn't really happen. Presumably his senility caused him to think he really did have these experiences; alternatively he could have simply been lying about them. A rather different view is taken in a new film, The Favourite, which has just finished shooting. Due out next year and described as bawdy tale of envy and betrayal, it has an unequivocally sexual take on the affair.
So where does the truth lie? History has long regarded Anne as one of history's duller monarchs: fat, frumpy, charmless and of limited intelligence.
