Grandparents sharing interests with their grandchildren = amazing adventures!

One grandparent. One cookie sheet. One granddaughter.

February 11, 2016 by Cubby

It started when they were toddlers and my wife and I discovered our calling: We were emphatically not their parents. We were grandparents – a relationship that was the gateway to a world that was different than the one their parents, being parents, could offer. My wife and I were the outliers, with a viewpoint […]

December 22, 2015 by Cubby

While I’m no expert on exercise for seniors, I’d like to think experience counts for something. I’m an 80-year-old guy who has exercised since his pre-teen years(Confession: I was a skinny kid with thin arms and shoulder blades that stuck out. I wanted to beef up.)

They’re always handy for an unplanned meal. And the […]

Cluck cluck! Moo moo! Baa baa! Fall fairs sights and smells take us back to what counts. They say that you can always trust a child to tell it the way it is. And there’s no child in the world who doesn’t thrill to livestock, the other farm animals and produce (ever see a kid […]
