Taking two of my oldest grandsons fishing this morning. Its something we can do together and I can still keep up. It’s important to spend time with your grandchildren, family. I wish when I was younger, I had spent more time with mine, and ask the right questions, lots of questions. As an example, I was speaking with my great-grandfather, from my father’s side, when I was a teenager. He lived on a farm in Illinois. He told me about the time Jesse James and the James’ Gang were passing through, returning to Missouri from Minnesota. He spoke about hiding his horses when they heard the gang would be coming close by. He talked about how tense it was, until they knew they had passed.
Grand-kids can learn a lot from their grandparents, but you have to spend time together. All will benefit. I wish I had lived closer to my grandparents and spent more time with them. I did go fishing with my grandpa. Just passing on the family tradition.
