Three Things That Might Make Grampas Laugh!

Posted By: Brad  //  Category: Boardman Views, Family, Humor

One thing about having lots of grandkids is the fact that you never know just what’s going to happen next.  Since I have ten of them, what’s coming “today” is always an adventure.  Take for example, one of my older granddaughters, Caitlin.

She was on Facebook recently describing a little event down at the gas station earlier that day.  This fact produced my first laugh.  The things they put on Facebook.

She’s always had an abundance of long gorgeous hair, but lately she’s been fooling around with the color.  Apparently, just prior to this episode she had one of those sessions at the beauty salon that didn’t go precisely as planned.

This produced my second grin. Well, okay. I laughed.

Caitlin: Got out to pump gas and the dude next to me screamed… I looked over at him and he said *oh gosh im sorry your hair scared me I thought you were going to rob the Gas station!!!     * i said No why would i do that.   He goes *your hair is ummmmm yeah* and drove off. Needless to say Im getting it darkened if not a different color! …The other guy in front of me pumping gas you could tell was trying not to laugh!

Caitlin’s Friend: That made my day .  🙂  Well the great thing about hair is it always grows out and you can always change it.  And that guy is paranoid if he thinks you’d rob a bank with hair that recognizable. Lol

I’m not gonna lie. Gramma and I were laughing so hard we almost cried.

“*Your hair is ummmmm yeah* and drove off.”  Hysterical!

We were just visualizing this whole thing and thinking of our dear granddaughter who has, over the years, had a bit of a fondness for getting stuff done to herself (e.g., tattoos, piercings, etc.) that, frankly, just doesn’t look good…at least to me.

To my credit, though, I’ve never screamed!

Well, that’s three.

You’re in Boardman Country!

Make yourself at home,

Brad

As Usual…Bass Ackwards!

How about a good rant today?

Let me begin by reminding you that I’ve been a long-time care giver and have over the years provided care for a number of family members. Since January 9, 2000, 4:00 a.m. (I just remember the time since that was when she arrived at our home following her whirlwind trip from Helena, Montana – long story), I’ve been taking care of my developmentally disabled sister-in-law, Elisabeth, or as we call her, Beth.

Beth

Beth has been and is a tremendous blessing to our family and household. She has a great sense of humor and loves to carry on both sides of a conversation. To listen to her go on and on with herself about who’s getting in trouble (she absolutely loves it when someone else is in the “hot seat”) or who is going to be in trouble is quite an irresistible eavesdrop.

She knows and accepts the fact that part of my “job,” the reason I get paid the big bucks, is to be a pest to her.

All this is to say Read more…
