    Good for him. I wished they would have stayed around for his "warm welcome"

    I'm glad the young man had the good sense to take them to his Grandfather's house, knowing that his Grandfather has a good understanding of the world today. It served them both well. It's a real shame that the two BG's didn't stick around for the final act.

    Sounds like they will be able to apprehend these dirtbags as the grandson recognized one of them.
    This was not a simple robbery, and these dirtbags need some serious jail time...where's Buba and his friends when you need them.

    Sad that he, upon seeing his grandson all bloodied did not begin shooting them befoe they turned tail and ran.
    I would have!!


    His grandson was very fortunate.





    Okay, I pulled the pin. Now what? Hey! Where are ya going?

    I’m a moderately younger grandpa, but I answer the door with a .357 as well. Maybe it’s simply the pathology of us aging men who realize we can’t physically mix it up like we use to.

    Come on Saber.....you know you are still a "stud"........still good for us GP's to have a large caliber revolver in the hand though. Maybe we should have some "Don't mess with Grandpa" T-shirt printed up!

    Good job on grand pa being stuck in his ways.

    A good job for the grandson having the forethought to take the attackers to grand pa's house where he knew what the welcome would be.

    My thoughts exactly! Mrs. Smitty has also learned not to open the door to anyone she doesn't know.
