Thursday Special ~ A GRANDPARENT

A grandparent

A 6 year old was asked where his grandma lived.

”Oh,” he said, ”she lives at the airport and when we want her we just go get her. Then when we’re done having her visit, we take her back to the airport.”


Grandad is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things but I don’t get to see him enough to get as smart as him.


It’s funny when Grandad bends over, you hear gas leaks and he blames the dog.”

  1. Our Grandad (my father) is great gas! 😀

    GM – I’m feeling very maternal today. I’m sitting here typing this with one hand as I have a 5-6 week old kitten asleep in my other arm. He came to us last night via Animal Rescue. I know you don’t like cats but this little one is a real sweetie. My other cat is not quite so enamoured with our new arrival.

    The kitten is grey/black with a white bib and four white paws. We think we’ll call him ‘Oscar’, our award winning cat! I hope my long deceased Grandad Oscar (whom I never met), doesn’t mind us using his name.

    Anyone got any other fun ideas for names?

  2. A grandmother was telling her little grandchild what her own childhood was like.

    “We used to skate outside on the pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard.We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods.”

    The little girl was wide eyed,taking this all in. At last she said,” I wish I’d gotten to know you sooner.”

    My own grandson asked me how old I was when he was about 6. I told him I was 65. He was quiet for a minute then he said,” Did you start at 1?”

  3. Paddy ~ Bottling gas can be your project for the summer! 🙄

    Steph ~ I’m not good at thinking of names for cats, since I would not be sure of whether they were boy cats or girl cats. 🙄
    Oscar seems fine to me.

    Chris ~ You came to mind when typing that one. 😀

    Nancy ~ “Did you start at 1?” – I love it! 😀

  4. My grandfather Flannagan lived with us when I was a kid. He smoked Phillies cigars and ran the local Knights of Columbus. Every once and awhile he would take me with him, sit me in a booth and feed me french fries (chips) and soda while he worked. He use to curse at other drivers on the road and make me promise not to tell my mother. I never did. He use to call VW Beetles, ‘Those god-damn tin cans’.
    He was born in 1888, one hundred years before my son was born.
    Sorry for all that but your post brought back a bunch of memories of him.

  5. I remember Art Linkletter’s Kids say the darnest things. And it never seems to change. Kids are the funniest and the most innocent in what they say and do. There is always a laugh on the horizon if we take the time to listen to them.

    My best,

    I love the way children get right to the point of a topic, and make me think all over again!
