Wondering about wild grapes

I've Been Reading Blogs.

I have been reading a lot of blog postings, but for some reason, I just didn't have anything to write about.  My last post was on the nineteenth of this month about going to the swap meet.  Everyone is OK at my house and the reason for not posting is that I am just lazy and didn't have anything new to say.

Well that has changed.  You do know that I am on the old side of life and have been a grandfather for quite awhile.  Well that is going to change this summer.  I am going to become a great grandpa.  Hey, I know I am great (grin), but being a great grandpa sounds really old to me.  Dang, wake up Dizzy and look in the mirror. Yep, I guess I am really old.  Anyway, I am really excited about the birth of my great grand baby.  I am excited about the upcoming event and am looking forward to seeing my first great grand son or daughter.  Some of us, like me, keep getting old and will soon be leaving this world and some are born new into this world.  I hope and pray that life in the world to come for my grandchild will be pleasant and treat him or her as well as possible.  Now, you all have a great day, you hear?

  4. Congratulations to the proud parents and to the grandparents and great grandparents as well. Two of my younger brothers are "greats" but I'm still just a grandma!

    1. You are still a grandma because you are not old enough to be a great grandma.

    1. Some days I an old, real old, but I am never mature. At least, I don't act mature. That is no fun.

  9. We all knew already that you were great, Dizzy! And I miss you when you're not posting ~ seems like you and Hermit Jim are just about the only ones, along with SixBears when he's got wifi, that post daily anymore. I count on that!!

  10. Ah, the Great Dizzy-Dick will become a most awesome Great Grandpa. Compared to me, good sir, you are a most prolific blogger.

    Here's to you and your family, good sir.

  11. My daughter never had kids, and I'm actually pretty at ease with the whole thing. I'm not "granny" to anyone, and don't have your type of worry on my mind for their future. Whew. All depends on how you look at it, eh gramps?

    1. gramps? No, not just gramps but great gramps. . . (grin). Of course one wants their blood line to continue and prosper in the future. But I will just be Alfred E. Newman and say, "what, me worry?".
