    Gonna be a Grandpa

    Yeah, the news that I have been so anxiously waiting to hear someday has finally come....I'm gonna be a Grandpa!

    A few months ago I mentioned that my son Steve Jr. had asked his girlfriend to marry him, she said yes, and the wedding day was planned, well.....

    ....they kinda got the timing thing a little off ....as they are getting married and had all their plans in place, they found out a couple weeks ago that first they are gonna have a baby.

    I'm so excited to find out that I will be able to spoil, err...I mean brainwa....ah....make sure the little tyke gets the necessary direction in life, so Judy and I went down to the local toy store (John Deere Dealer) and made a few first purchases.....

    Congrats Steve! Cool little toy!

    We're expecting grandchild #5 in two weeks and it's still exciting! (secretly, Iím hoping that this one will be a boy)

    Congratulations to you and your family. I'm sure you will love that little feller more than you realize that you will now. Looks like you have a good start on spoiling him/her.
    I once heard that cats and women will do darn well what they please and that men and dogs would do well to accept it and just go on.

    Congrats Steve! Grandkids are more fun than kids ever were! You can afford to spoil them and then send them home! When we found out our 2nd great grandchild was a boy......we bought the John Deere clothing outfits! He looks good in them!
