    Gonna be a grampa

    My daughter just informed me that she will be delivering my first grandchild on or about May 1, 2009. I'm stunned, overjoyed, freaked out, and feeling just a little bit old (I'm 42, she's 24).

    Oy!
    When in doubt, just ask yourself, "What would Theodore Roosevelt do?"

    Sweet, nothing like Grandpa teaching you to shoot. I still remember mine showing me how to use a bow and arrow.

    Grand Baby! Yeah!

    Congrats!!! I too, will be a first time grandpa on or about Feb 14. She will definitely be spoiled. Shiny guns with pink grips are in order! Her daddy is 82nd Airborne and the mama is a country girl that likes guns! I surely am a blessed man!

    PS. So is my wifey!

    Socialism tries to give the slave all the advantages of his security together with the benefits of freedom, and, in the process, destroys both the free and the enslaved.

    Thanks all. My daughter is 24, and I have sons who are 11 and 7, so I'll have an 8 year old and a newborn grandchild at the same time. Wild!
