Third grandchild on the way

Jeff in TXJeff in TX Senior MemberPosts: 1,230 Senior Member
My oldest son called us using face time yesterday evening.  He said our 18 month old grandson Gavin wanted to read us a book.  He panned the camera over to Gavin who was holding a book that said "I'm gonna be a big brother"!  Very unexpected but another blessing from god!  Baby is due Feb 9th, 2019.  This will be my oldest's son and his wife second baby and our third grand baby!

God is great folks and continues to bless me and our family!

    Congrats, the best thing about having grandkids is we can spoil them rotten then send them home.

    Yep!

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    Congrats Jeff

    Jay, those are rules number 2 & 3 of being grandpa
    1) Love 'em
    2) Spoil 'em
    3) Send that little butt home

    You have no idea.  When I was born in 60 my pop bought me a new Browning SA .22 LR.  Today it's still my pride and joy.  Last summer after my first grandson Gavin was born in Jan of 17 I bought him a 2017 Browning SA .22LR which he'll receive when he's old enough.  I'll have to start looking for a 2019 model if it's another boy.  I hope they'll cherish theirs as much as I cherish mine to this day!

    Granddaughters will have to wait to see if there's an itch to hunt and shoot.  My granddaughter Kinsley I just don't see it happening!

    My boys all have guns to get by with until the get their own collections going, only problem I had was that 2 out of 4 are lefty's, so some stuff is getting moved around.

    We've been waiting...and hoping...and praying. And our 30 year old son and DIL told us they don't see themselves having any children. Now we know plans can change, on purpose or not. But that was a pretty crushing blow for me and Susan.

    I’d have to go out and adopt new kids.  Can’t even fathom the thought.  So sorry my friend, hope their minds change.

    That's what a will is for.  Just saying...
