    Thanks Molly. It sometimes is a real madhouse when they are all together. Of course I usually egg it all on.

    Hope all is well over there. We are getting hit hard with snow, from 2 to 3 feet in the mountains. It's heading your way.

    If it's your first you won't believe how much fun. I like the newborns but get a few months (and a couple of three years) under their belt and it really gets fun. It's fun going out walking and looking at monsters in the grass, like ants and other critters.

    Congratulations and I hope all goes well.

    :) :) I do my best to spoil the grand kids, and at times it gets my kids knickers in a knot. But that's what grandpa is for.

    Thanks, Kent

    Thanks Bob, I appreciate that.

    I hope things are going well with you. Did you get the cold spells in your area?

    My sisters husband past away back in November and I was a little south (I think it was south) of Tuscon and the weather was cool but really nice. Went back down a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't believe what the cold weather had done to the cacti and other foliage. I saw a lot of frost damage to the lemon, orange and grapefruit trees.

    Be well my friend. Kent

    Thanks Hoss. I'm only blowing the whistle for now. The work will come when I have to do some baby sitting. I will moan and groan to the parents but have a ball with the kids.

    Hehehe didn't think about that, but great idea Tom.

    Once a month we get together for dinner and that really gets interesting. If you ever saw the original Lethal Weapon with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, the scene at the end where Danny invites Mel in to dinner and Mel whistles for his dog. All you can hear is the dog chasing the cat.

    Great fun for grandpa. I stir things up a little and grandma just sighs and gives me a loving smile.

    Hi GG,
    Yes, we got the very cold stuff and it took it did a number on the plants. Our weather is warming, starting tomorrow our late afternoons will hit around 80 or a bit above. Mornings are not bad either, usually around 50 or so at 6 a.m.

    Were just waiting to see which plants make it and which one froze to death. :( I sure am glad to see the hot weather coming.

    My Best to you and your's,
    Bordello

    I was really amazed how much change the first cold blast did to all the plants. The alo plants were really suffering. However, it is amazing how those plants come out of stress.

    When we were down there we took some time to go see the Desert Museum. Before going I thought it would be sort of hohum. It was really pretty darn cool, I wish we would have gotten there earlier as I wanted to see more of the Raptor's.

    50° is a pretty darn nice temperature. Temperature wise I would really enjoy San Diego or San Francisco area or your area in the winter months.

    Be well, Kent

    She a cutie pie, that's for sure!

    17 is a lot of grandkids! How many kids do you guys have? I have always been envious of large families. I only have 3 kids myself. There were 4 kids in my family growing up but my mom has an identical twin and she had 4 kids and we were together all the time, so it was like there were 8 of us. 10 if you add in the other two cousins who were also always around. Now mostly married with kids and grandkids of their own. Family get-togethers are a lot of fun ex we moved 2 states away about 10 years ago so we miss out on most of that fun.

    Our first grandchild will be born in October.

    Thanks Beli. I am pretty proud although I had nothing to do with it. It will get a lot more fun in a couple of 3 or 4 months.

    Hope all is well in your part of the world. Kent

    That is great! A lot of fun. I sure hope you have easy access. I would to live up on an island in your neck of the of the woods as wood my wife. However, with the grand kids mostly in this area (2 g.kids up you you) my wife would never move. She doesn't ask for much for herself so I will put up with this weather for the duration. Besides I love any time I can get with the g. kids.

    We have 5 kids. The oldest son has 5 kids oldest 14 and youngest about a year now.

    The next in line is another son and he and his wife can't figure out what is causing kids. Between adopting and natural berth they have 5 and are going to have a couple more.

    Next is my oldest girl. They have 3 their oldest son is almost 12 and a dang good basket ball player. Their daughter is 8 or 9 and doing very well in interstate gymnastics. Their youngest and last son idolizes his big brother.

    My middle daughter and her husband have had a real hard time having kids. A boy and now 4 years later Samantha Rae (our newest).

    The caboose in our family is our youngest daughter. 2 boys.

    My youngest son and middle daughter were born 4 years, 4 minutes apart. Our youngest daughter was a surprise and only 11 months younger than her older sister.

    My brothers and cousins only see each other once a year if that. So when all our kids were younger we would always have Sunday dinner over here. As the kids got bigger and things more complicated and a lot more mouths we cut the meals down to once a month. That was important for my wife and I as we hope our kids and grand kids will be friends and have fun with their siblings. Cooking for everyone is a lot of work now but I wouldn't pass it up for anything.

    I keep thinking about 4 years ahead and longer with all the g. kids boy and girl friends coming to the monthly dinner. I am going to need a bunch more eggs.

    Well that's about hit for the family history...

    Again congratulations on your upcoming grand child.

    Be well, Kent

    That is very true indeed. I only wish I took the time to play and enjoy my kids as much as I do the grand kids. Back then I put too much emphasis on living and getting 'stuff' for the family. I have a 9 year old grand daughter that loves to sit around the egg and cook and just talk. If we are not cooking a meal we are roasting marshmellows and making smores.

    Very rich indeed.

    Thanks, GG

    GG, can't beat yourself up to much - most of us did the same thing, myself included. But, you get to have a nice retirement because of it. Me...I'm 1 1/2 years away from packing it in and moving to the mountains of Colorado....where my kids and grandkids live now. B)
