If signup dates were our birth dates, then I could be your grand-grandfather.
sorry to hear that dear.
Well, tickling, wrestling are out of the question, fishing and camping looks like a tough road too. What you got in mind?
I can tell you what I do with mine, we go fishing, camping, wrestle, make cookies, go on treasure hunts.
As they age, showing up for graduation, take you on vacation with us, give us good excuses to go to kid movies or plays, or shows. Granddaughter talked me into going to the drag races with her. basically, grandparents do everything parents do with out the constant reminders of what ever your parents are always bugging you about. Its an older adult who cares for you, talks to you not at you and takes interest in you as the person you are, with your hopes and dreams, not the hopes and dreams a parent has for you. And then, it is our gift in life to bore you to tears with tales of how things used to be.
I had wicked good grandparents as role models, grandpa has been dead over 40 years and I still talk to him on occasion and he is still in my prayers and thoughts.
I got home from 3 months in bootcamp for the military, went out partying that night with my cousins and friends, and we drank way to much, 5 AM Pa showed up walked in and got me up, said we have to go dump trash, he was right, he had not made a dump run since I had been gone. I asked why he didn't get one of the other guys to give him a hand, Pat, Timmy, Gary, Stanley, Mike any of them would have helped. He said, Well, I could, but they aren't as much fun as you are, and grab your pole.
