Granddaddy Pride

Kara & Zachary
My grandchildren are doing so good in school that it makes me proud. You know, that “Granddaddy Pride!”

Zachary had an exceptional report card. So good that I wondered if this was my grandson! In six subjects he had all A’s (Two 99s, and four 100s or more). You can click on his report card if you want to see the details.

2010-05-29 10.43.13 And there’s Kara. She made all A’s and got the following plaques:

I’m also VERY proud of my other grandchild, Mandy, who is 26 years old and married. She will likely be the the one to make me a great granddaddy some day. Well, I’ll quit bragging for today. I would be easy to start bragging about my children, but I’ll stop. I’m so thankful for all of my family. And no matter what, if they do their best, I’m proud of them.


Question: “You don’t spoil your grandchildren do you?”
Answer: “Not this morning, I haven’t seen them yet.”

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is when you still have something on the ball, but you are just too tired to bounce it.

Quote of the Day
Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years.  We grow old by deserting our ideals.  Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

Joke of the Day

Senior Wedding

Jacob, age 92, and Rebecca, age 89, living in Miami, are all excited about their decision to get married. They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding, and on the way they pass a drugstore ... Jacob suggests they go in.

Jacob addresses the man behind the counter:

"Are you the owner?"

The pharmacist answers, "Yes."

Jacob: "We're about to get married. Do you sell heart medication?"

Pharmacist: "Of course, we do."

Jacob: "How about medicine for circulation?"

Pharmacist: "All kinds."

Jacob: "Medicine for rheumatism?"

Pharmacist: "Definitely."

Jacob: "How about suppositories?"

Pharmacist: "You bet!"

Jacob: "Medicine for memory problems, arthritis and Alzheimer's?"

Pharmacist: "Yes, a large variety. The works."

Jacob: "What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for Parkinson's disease?"

Pharmacist: "Absolutely."

Jacob: "Everything for heartburn and indigestion?"

Pharmacist: "We sure do."

Jacob: "You sell wheelchairs and walkers and canes?"

Pharmacist: "All speeds and sizes."

Jacob: "Adult diapers?"

Pharmacist: "Sure."

Jacob: "We'd like to use this store as our Bridal Registry."
