Obviously, I’m in favor of both grandparents and grand-parenting. I was raised by my grandparents John and Edna Lynn, and my granddad was raised by his grandparents Jeremiah and Ann Elizabeth Lynn. Both Jeremiah and Ann Elizabeth were born in 1829. Being raised by grandparents raised by grandparents (in addition to my personal accumulation of years) is probably a factor in my long time “older perspective” – read “conservative perspective” – on a number of subjects. And now, I'm also a grandparent many times over – 18 grandkids to be precise and, who knows, could be more!

Today is “National Grandparents Day.” The day of celebration became official in 1978. Grandparents have been special to me all of my life.
