Grampy Andy!

I found out over the weekend that my eldest is pregnant. I'm going to be a grandfather!


They live about 25-30 minutes away from me. I can't wait until I have the opportunity to teach the kid to cook and spit and scratch and swear! ...and if it's a boy, there will be even more!

I haven't been completely deprived up to now because Suzanne, my S. O. has four grandchildren and they've adopted me as one of their grandfathers.

I am really looking forward to this!

Oh nooooo your poor daughter, I can see it now...grampa spitting, then little one spitting, grampa eating beans and .... then little one .... (guess what I am politely saying?) :) LOL just teasing, congratulations.

I am sure you will have many valuable things to teach your new grandbaby than tooting. :) There is nothing absolutely NOTHING better than seeing a child with magic in his/her eyes on the holidays or when they do something special. :)
