OT major gloat

Last week I had a minor gloat with a load of Ash I picked up. This weeks MAJOR gloat is that my son phoned with the news that I'm gonna be a grandpappy for the 1st time. Never thought I'd see the day

I used to tell my son I hoped he had three kids, hat acted just like he did. Actually, the grandkid is turning out all right, and we get along fine.

Congratulations, Gramps -- and on Father's Day, no less!
I'm still a few years away from that. At least I'd better be. (#1 is still a teenager, until next spring.)

*Much hand shaking and back slapping!* Congratulations.
You will now know the meanining of those wise words once posted on a bumper by an unknown prophet: "If I had known being a grandparent was going to be so much fun, I would have done that first!"

Thanks for the nice comments folks. At least now I have some ideas for what to make with some of that Ash I scored last week. (cribs, cradles, toys etc.)

Know te feeling. Funny story. When my dau-in-law was expectin, years back, for some still unknown reason my ex seemed to feel it was appropriate to communcate wih me regarding the fact. She's had little contact with my sons since she left us in '84, and less with me. However, she apparently she had it in her head that she was the "matriarch" of the tribe. Accordingly she was not enthused that the son had not asked her input on getng engaged, getting maried, nd getting his wife in the family way. So she picked me to tell about her feelings that she was "too young to be a grandmother". She was somewhat pissed and apparently figured I was the one person who would give her a bit of sympothy. So she asked me how I felt about being a grandfather. I told her I thought it was "kinda neat". I am happy to report that with that little admission I probably spoiled her entire week. Hehehehe It really, really, pssed her off. Still give me warm fuzzies. Tell the kid now it's gonna be pay back time. LMAO

I can remember back when I was about twelve, my very exasperated mother said: "I hope you have kids just like /you/!"
It's a lot easier to chuckle about that now they're grown. :-)

Much easier to think about it now anyway. At least they both work and on't get in trouble. And I resisted beating the older one brutally about the head and shoulders using a large wooden stick - would have been impossible to believe back then, but he recently got promoted to supervisor at work, now the number one man after the owner. Will wonders never cease?
