Being a grandparent never really gets old PDF E-mail

I’m a little late on this subject that should have been published prior to Grandparents Day, but all us grandpas keep our grandkids in mind every day,  no matter how old they are ... or how old we are.


Everyone, including grandmas too, also give grandkids strong priority. That’s why I enjoyed this comment from a grandpa whose grandson was visiting him.


The grandson asked, “Grandpa, do you know how you and God are alike?”


Grandpa mentally polished his halo and then asked the grandson, “No. How are we alike?” The grandson replied, “You’re both old.”


While on the grandparent subject, here are some other grandchildren thoughts we picked up:


What a bargain grandchildren are. I give them my loose change and they give me a million dollars worth of pleasure.


Grandchildren don’t stay young forever, which is good because grandpas have only so many horsey rides to give them.


Grandmas never run out of cookies or treats.


My grandsons believe I’m the oldest thing in the world. After two or three hours with them, I believe it too!


Grandchildren are God’s way of compensating us for growing old.


It’s amazing how grandparents seem so young once you become one.


Grandmas hold those tiny hands for just a little while, but grandchildren remain in our hearts forever.”

It’s been a tough couple of weeks for the Husker faithful and I must admit the betterhalf kept her loyalty to Big Red. Her loyalty never waned even when I complained the Husker team and fans both were both wearing black for that @%# UCLA game. I told her all that black was a bad omen signifying we were dressing for a funeral. Little did we know the next few days a game loss was only just a part of the headline makin’s.


I found it interesting as soon as Dr. Tom Osborne strongly backed Coach Pelini and said he was aware a year ago of his controversial private comments, the controversy mellowed; the bulk of criticism fell; and Husker Nation still remained as one of the best in football. Ah, Dr. Tom, you are still an influential and respected figure!
