Congratulations grandpa.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Thanks Guys!  

He came over Sunday and we chatted.  He's nervous as hell....  This will definitely cramp his lifestyle.  He's super active and when not on the job or in his metal shop in his garage he's in the woods somewhere hunting or hiking.  Kinda reminds me of uncle Winkle... Tongue

Just keep the mantra that it is a new beginning and not the end of the world. Raising kids is better left to the younger generation. If it was left up to the old folks not many of them would survive. We rode in cars without seat belts, In the bed of the truck, waded the creek, had to work in the garden. ........... Todays children know nothing about how to protect themselves. Ouch
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

I remember going on weekend camping trips with my church groups. We'd all pile into the open backs of a couple of pickup trucks and ride for a couple of hours to a state park, then terrorize the camp ground and park for the weekend. It's a wonder I survived.
