I just found out...

I'm going to be a grandpa!

This is a first for me. Wow.

Like that's some kind of accomplishment for YOU?

Oh, OK— congrats. I have two of them and they are pretty neat little critters.

Have a ball!

(Sure do wish they had a better world stretched out before them.)

No I simply meant it is my first Granchild Rio.

It's certainly a rotten world out there.

I remember the first time that I heard those words.."You are going to be a grandpa". That was 14 years ago. At first it was kind of a shock, and then it developed into great joy.

To date, we have 10 grandchildren and two more on the way, the next one is due to be born in about two weeks. I'll be loosing my wife for 2 weeks as she will be traveling to Nashville to be with our youngest daughter and our newest granddaughter.

Grand parenting is one of life's greatest joys. We really do get to get even with our children for the little demons that they were. We get to spoil the grandkids rotten, give 'em back to their parents and them head back to our own home. Heh, heh, heh.

We get to teach 'em everything that their parents don't want 'em to know.

We love 'em all equally, and really wish that we all lived closer together. Sometimes it is really difficult when they are scattered all over the world.

I wouldn't trade being a grandpa for nothin'.

Enjoy 'em and count your blessings. Children, (that includes grand children) are a blessing from God.

Congrats! I must say, I hope I don't get to speak those words for many years to come, though ;-)
