PT’s 91 Years of Wisdom
|Gramps being silly with half of his great grandkids|
This year, I had a terrible time trying to figure out what my A-Z theme would be. I finally decided that this year, I would honor my beloved 91 year old grandfather, Paul Titus, or PT as his friends called him, who passed away on February 8th. He lived a wonderfully full life and was always trying to challenge my brothers and me to think out of the box. So for this challenge I thought I would share little bits of his wisdom that he tried to bestow upon us.
But I also want to highlight the wonderful bloggers in this community who have published their books. So everyday, I will give a quick shout out to those works with titles beginning with the letter of the day.
Gramps climbed up on his desk at work, cupped his hands to his mouth, and announced, “Here ye, here ye I have the best grandkids in the world!” Well, that’s what he told me he did anyway. In my mind I saw him shouting daily to his whole office, the wonderful qualities me and my two brothers possessed.
I thought it was funny that my very well mannered grandfather would actually stand on his desk at work, but most of all I was honored that he wanted to shout to the world how much he loved us. It took me a number of years to realize he was probably kidding, but he made us feel special.
Over the years, he was blessed with six great-grandchildren. He made time for each one of them. He read to them, sang to them, taught them to fish, and he was even known to have squirt gun fights with them.
When he would come to visit us, he would play Playstation with Ryan, (he had no clue what he was doing! :)), and come to the ice rink to watch Jessica and Alyssa skate. And even though he didn’t climb up on the tables, he told everyone he knew about his grandkids.
So I guess, now it’s my turn to stand up and shout to the world, “Here ye, here ye I had the best grandpa in the world!”
Now for the "G" title shout outs!
If I missed any blogger buddy books that begin with "G" feel free to add the titles in the comments.
I hope everyone had a great weekend! We did, we went up to Michigan to visit my in-laws and had a wonderfully relaxing time!
Have a gorgeous "G" day!
