Let's see if we oldster's can amuse each other with grandkid stories.

One of my six year old's told the waitress at IHOP the other day that bacon is her favorite kind of dead pig.

Conversation between Gramps (me) and 5 year old grand daughter:

Her: Papaw, you're losing your mind.

Me: If I lose it, will you help me find it?

Her: Sure.

Me: Where would you look for it?

Her: In your head!

We were getting ready to order pizza and the word anchovies came up. He asked what anchovies were and I replied it's a salty fish. He said, "You can't put salty fish on pizza, it tastes icky."

My granddaughter proudly told me her feet weighed 28 pounds. I asked if she was at the doctors. She said yes. I told her she weighed 28 pounds. She told me no because she had her feet on the scale not the rest of her.

while walking through their yard, holding my grand-daughters hand (just turned 3) I said "you have a lovely yard, it's very beautiful, you're a lucky little girl"......she said "yes, I'm very happy here, it's my space, it's my home".....I felt very proud.

My grand kids came to spend the night. We had just purchased a new pillowtop mattress and as we were all laying on the bed, getting ready to watch a movie, the conversation went like this:

Grandson: Grandpa, I like your new bed, it's so comfy.

Grandpa: I'm glad you like it because I bought it with your college fund. (Joking of course, tee hee.)

Grandson: Grandpa, I really think you need a new bed(frame) too. I'm really don't want to go to school anymore.

lol These are cute stories.

At our grandson's 3rd birthday party this summer, he was happily opening presents, but then he opened one in particular...I forget what it was, it was something he ought to have liked, like a toy car...and he exclaimed, "YUCK!!! THAT'S DISGUSTING!!!" I about fell over laughing. I asked his dad later on why he would have done that; he was not sure but said son did not like a couple of different colors and perhaps the toy was that color. I really wish I'd videotaped it.

OK, Last winter one of my G-daughters (4yo) was with my wife shopping. I was 40 miles away on my way back from a job and it was snowing pretty good. I called my wife and asked her if it were snowing where we lived and she said no. My wife then called one of her friends and canceled an outing due to the incoming snow. When I got home, my G-daughter told me that a man Don (that's me) told mom-mom that it was snowing. I busted. Yes...she knows my name.

I have grandsons by two of my sons and they don't have a lot of opportunity to play together so I sometimes invite the three of them to spend the night and play together. I have a mattress I bring into the living room ( they were 5, 6 and 7 at the time) and afraid to sleep in the bedrooms. We live in the country and it's dark for them with no street lights etc.

Anyway, I was laying on the couch watching a movie with them and one of them "tooted". They thought it was sooo funny and began to have a "tooting" contest. Finally, the one in the middle was getting gassed out. He turned to the other two and said "that's about enough bu#@ talk out of you". I couldn't understand what he said so I asked him. He looked at me and said, "When my Dad tells me to do something and I sat no, he tells me That's enough butt talk out of you. And I can't take it anymore, I've had enough butt talk out of these guys."

Grand daughter and her mom are on the floor playing.

Dog (large and not very high on the doggy IQ scale) gets between them and won't move.

Grand daughter to dog: "Move, Sam, you're being obtrusive!"

She's not quite 27 months old.

Her mother was an English major in college.
