Honors of being honorary G-Paw

Here while back I posted a pic of some of the neighborhood kids. Bubba and Boo was in it with Dalton.

Today the school called to invite me to eat dinner with my grandson tomorry cause it's G-Paw day. Dalton is my only grandson and 8 months is a little young for a Papa outting.

Come to find out it was Bubba (Sean).

I told um Sean aint really my grandson and thanked um anyway. They called back in about 30 minutes and said Sean says I am his G-Paw and they put him on the phone.

After I got off the phone I wiped the tear outta my bad eye and Ma Burr went to see what I have clean and presentable for a G-Paw dinner.

My point in posting is to remind the rest of you old geezers to always be nice to the wee-ones. You don't ever know how you're effecting their minds, nor who they'll slip off and tell that they love ye if yer good to um.

Well I just wiped tears outta both my eyes! I guess that's what Grandpas are for, even if they aint blood kin. Lord knows I miss both mine!

And you're right. The youth is the future. We better take care of 'em.

That's something I never experienced Bro Nathan.
I had 2 super good Grampaws. One of them was a blacksmith and one was a carpenter there aint no telling how many of my grampaws tools I lost.

I just hope it aint fish sticks for dinner. I hate fish sticks and seeing as it's Friday in Catholic country I got a bad feeling bout the menu.

I'll be good and enjoy ever bite tho cause we get to listen to the kiddoes tell stories and look at what pictures the kids have drawn.

Better have MaBurr tighten the buttons on your shirt because for sure they will be popping off with pride. What a great story.
