That makes me feel Old !

#1 Post by fatboy » Sat Jun 01, 2019 3:27 pm

A phone call from the big brother tells me I'm now a Great Uncle !
Last time I saw my nephew he was just about big enough to bite me on the knee..
Still, really rather pleased and I'm sure they are all chuffed to bits.
is it just me in thinking newborns resemble aliens whilst they are brand new ?
Won't take long for the family good looks to kick in though !

I slid quietly into grandfatherhood. But I still say fuck a lot. Impresses the shit out of the GK's friends - our eldest grandie is 24 this year, don't ask, because I'm fucked if know...

Maybe it's different for a grandmother, but I fell instantly in love the moment I saw my first grandchild, having never been very keen on babies before (yes I had two of my own but only because I wanted children!).

I say fuck a lot more than I used to but that's more to do with arthritis!

Youngest grandchild used to tell me off but I've noticed he doesn't any more. He's 13 now.
The tragedy of old age is not that one is old, but that one is young.

Fortunately, I'm not yet old enough to have grandchildren.

You can try to locate the grandchildren if you wish to prove me wrong ....

The fact that you don't have any proves nothing about your qualifications for the role!

I had my suspicions when he asked if I wanted to see his son's puppy......
