10-21-14-My Morning Thoughts: “it never stops” There is no end to worries. As a parent I’ve have worried over big things and small things and even the things I have no control over. Every child has their turn someday and I know as a child I sure did present things to worry about to my parents! And with the infamous statement of “wait till you have children then you’ll know what I’m talking about”…the cycle will continue…it’s the way it is…and really, can you blame us…plain and simple.
10-20-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Grandfather Worries” I got stiches next to my eye playing with my cousin David (two years old) I got stiches on my lip from playing hide-in-go-seek with my sister (two and half years old) I got stitches stepping into a French drain with my cousin Judy (three years old) I got stiches from falling off a slide (three years old) I got stiches playing with my sisters girl scout knife (3 years old) I got stiches tripping on a curb when I was leaving a store with a six pack of Pepsi for mom (four years old) I got stiches from playing with plastic swords with my cousin Joe (5 years old) I got stiches from wrestling with my friend Andy with pocket knives (6 years old) I got stiches playing with a utility knife (7 years old)…well anyway after second grade there were many many more!...however, I’m am still here and I am still somewhat sane and I am still somewhat good looking (depending on what day it is and who you talk too…LOL) and its totally crazy looking back at this…but the bottom line is things happen and we get over it and we move on frequently laughing while looking back…The thing is, when they do happen they are traumatic at the time and “that” part of it I could have lived without…but like I said, fear not because there will be some bumps along the way that nobody ever wishes for, and as a grandfather I will be there to protect from all of this because I’m wiser to how accidents happen and as you can see…I have some experience in knowing, what not to do!…plain and simple.
10-17-14-My Morning Thoughts: “In or Out” I’m not sure but I don’t think you can be in and out and the same time…you’re either in…or you’re out!...Your either in fashion or your you out of fashion, you’re in trouble or your out of trouble, you’re in a good mood or you’re not…well you get the point. So I ask this basic question; are you “in” or “out”…I think I’m in, but I’m a little bias…LOL…either way, have a great weekend and be safe…plain and simple.
10-16-14-My Morning Thoughts: TBT It is so funny to think back when my dad and mom use to say things like; so and so has been friends with us for like 40 years! I use to think man are they old!!!...and now, I have friends for well over 40 years…so what does that tell ya…I’m right where they use to be and damn fortunate to be able say that now too!...LOL…so grateful for friends to be sure!...plain and simple.
10-14-14-My Morning Thoughts: If you only had one slow dance left with that special one in your life…would there be a one special song to go with it?...right now I’m going with Carol Kings “You’ve Got a Friend”…plain and simple.
10-13-14-My Morning Thoughts: Did you notice when the kids get out for recess these days they have all these cool playground jungle gyms and slides and swings and balance beams and just lots of cool stuff…we had a court yard and some beat up balls!...But we did have some great fun too because it was all we had and loved what we had, that’s for sure!...enjoy the days and cherish the memories…plain and simple.
10-09-14-My Morning Thoughts: Burp… Why is it, when my granddaughter burps my wife (in this child-like voice) says, oh isn’t she so cute and precious…but when I do it…I have to duck extremely fast!...ha ha!!!...just enjoying the times…plain and simple.
10-08-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Old Saying” I use to hear this all the time; you can spoil meat but you can’t spoil children… and being truthful, I was never a fan of it while trying to raise our children…but now I have a granddaughter…and I like this saying so much more for some reason!...LOL…plain and simple.
10-07-14-My Morning Thoughts: So I’ve been a grandpa for about two weeks now and so far this is so much easier than parenting! I can’t wait till she’s old enough so I can let her do things at our house that she can’t do at her house…LOL…I’m just kidding Jack & Alyssa…kind-a…plain and simple.
10-06-14-My Morning Thoughts: There’s just something about a new baby that smells so good! And I think the best part is…it rubs off on you after you hold her…plain and simple.
