Seems like yesterday...Another Birthday

How did it happen?

Where did the time go?


At some point my boy went from this...

To this...

My son turned 16 this week!!!

As I look back over the years, I'm again grateful for this blog. I look back on past birthday posts, and get to relive every heartfelt moment. THIS is the reason I started this blog. I'm not great at scrapbooking, but man will my guy have something to reflect on in the future...hopefully. I have officially commemorated 4 of his past birthdays here. And I am GRATEFUL!!

Take a walk down memory lane with me...

There's this "Letter to Ty" when he turned 12.
I cried when I re-read his 13th birthday here.
And then of course I was tardy for his 14th birthday.
And then there was FIFTEEN?!?

My son is becoming a man. He is working on his Eagle project, he has a job, and he's getting good grades. We still remind him he has to do his chores, and his room is never my son is still a kid in many ways. THANK GOODNESS!!

Grandy is truly GRATEFUL!!

We have all seen spam comments, but maybe you are not all amused to see a comment that is totally irrelevant to your post.

In my last post, I got a spam comment that said, "I really like your blog. There is great research and I really think people could get a lot from your site." RESEARCH? Grandy doesn't write based on RESEARCH. Read just a couple of posts (albeit recently few and far between) and you will see that this blog is based more on comedic or emotional anecdotes, rather than research.

Yeah, that was my FIRST clue.

Then the comment proceeded to connect a link to "hot chicks gone wild", and my personal favorite "beautiful boobies".


You stopped me at research, and then had me ROLLING at the boobies folks.

Perhaps you work on your spam-comments-101 class, and try to be a little bit more relevant.
