Fast Forward from Ralph 11
Saying for the day- Grandmas never run out of hugs or cookies.
My good friend Ralph forwards all this interesting e-mail to me and on Wednesday I choose the best to share with you.
Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting.
What a bargain grandchildren are! I give them my loose change, and they give me a million dollars' worth of pleasure.
Grandmothers are just "antique" little girls.
Perfect love sometimes does not come until the first grandchild.
A grandmother is a babysitter who watches the kids instead of the television.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Becoming a grandmother is wonderful. One moment you're just a mother.
The next you are all-wise and prehistoric.
Grandchildren don't stay young forever, which is good because
Granddaddies have only so many horsy rides in them.
Grandmother always made you feel she had been waiting to see
just you all day and now the day was complete.
~ Marcy DeMaree~
Grandmothers hold our tiny hands for just a little while, but our hearts forever. ~Author Unknown~
If I had known how wonderful it would be to have grandchildren,
I'd have had them first.
My grandkids believe I'm the oldest thing in the world.
And after two or three hours with them, I believe it, too.
If becoming a grandmother was only a matter of choice,
I should advise every one of you straight away to become one.
There is no fun for old people like it!
~Hannah Whithall Smith~
It's such a grand thing to be a mother of a mother
that's why the world calls her grandmother.
Grandchildren are God's way of compensating us for growing old.
~Mary H. Waldrip~
You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother. ~Proverb~
An hour with your grandchildren can make you feel young again.
Anything longer than that, and you start to age quickly.
The best baby-sitters, of course, are the baby's grandparents.
You feel completely comfortable entrusting your baby to them for long periods,
which is why most grandparents flee to Florida
I wish I had the energy that my grandchildren have - if only for self-defense.
Grandmother-grandchild relationships are simple.
Grandmas are short on criticism and long on love.
Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do.
Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.
Grandmother - a wonderful mother with lots of practice.
A grandparent is old on the outside but young on the inside.
One of the most powerful handclasps is that of a new grandbaby
around the finger of a grandfather.
It's amazing how grandparents seem so young once you become one.
If your baby is "beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses,
sleeps on schedule and burps on demand,
an angel all the time," you're the grandma.
Grandparents are similar to a piece of string - handy to have Around
and easily wrapped around the fingers of their grandchildren.
What is it about grandparents that is so lovely?
I'd like to say that grandparents are God's gifts to children
And if they can but see, hear and feel what these people have to give,
they can mature at a faster rate.
Grandchildren don't make a man feel old;
it's the knowledge that he's married to a grandmother.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life goes on as usual.– Not a cup is out of place at Nancy’s. Pastor Moe is not under the illusion he is being thrown into a snowbank. There are no coffee geysers. So one may conclude either that the poltergeist is dead or has not returned.
Petrovich is locked up in his office studying old Russian manuscripts. He is trying to find the dribblets that have to do with the recent battles. There are so many dribblets and so little time.
Milk train arrived this morning with a load of tourists in a special car. They all came because of the news stories about the battle. Well , most of them came because of the news stories. One of them asked no questions but went straight to the fly Inn and got a room. He won't be leaving on the evening train.
Nancy is having a no poltergeist special – a saffron bun and a cup of coffee for $1.25. That comes with free poltergeist stories.
Buddy East says that he hasn’t received the plaque yet for the contest but as soon as he does he will send it to Margaret. Sometimes everything gets all fouled up.
Today's link-My Crazy Life- Come rejoice with a happy parent. Leave a Dr. John in the comment for an A.
My stomach was upset again today. I have no idea why. I did some reading. I watched my soaps. Took a nap. Arranged for telephone, cable, and internet for our part of the duplex. It starts on May 1. Trying to decide between Time Waner and AT&T was difficu8lt. What gave Time Warner the edge was they required no long term commitment where AT&T wanted two years. I did visit a few blogs. Now I need a breathing treatment.
