    Well let it go this time Steve...

    Actually, while I am not a Grandparent, I think it would be pretty hard for you to beat the picture posting of Alyson. I think I have posted way too many pictures of her, but I figure its my way (and your way) (and every on elses way) of putting the FAMILY in Familywoodworking
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Great pic Gramps!

    When I was a little kid, at Christmas time I'd get out of bed, and crawl under the tree and sleep there, my mom would go looking in on me and find me not in bed, she knew exactly where to look, snuggled under the tree with my blanket in the pile of presents

    Cheers!

    Wonderful, you are going to enjoy him.

    Just teach him to be a Colts fan, you are to far gone but there is hope for him.

    Also be careful Grandkids are like rabbits they keep coming and coming and coming.






    To prove it here are 14 of 17 ....Love every one of them to no end.

    All these pictures reminds me of a funny, and yet sad, story. A few years ago now, for some strange reason all of us kids go together at my parents house. This was indeed odd because when ether are 9 kids (3 birth and 6 adopted) its hard to get that many people together. Well Dad had got this new camera and insisted we all pose for a picture. So us kids go together and a picture was taken.

    It will never happen again.

    A few months later Trisha was killed in a car accidnt. Wayen was sent to prison (long, long story) and so that picture was kind of good, but also sad. No matter if we ever get together again, it will be down to seven. I guess you just never know what the future holds.
