Sometimes something comes along to reminder me how far along life's road I have travelled. Today one of those events comes to pass. It is my Granddaughter Gemma's 22nd birthday.I seem to remember feeling a little decrepit when my son was that age.
So what's the next marker on the journey? Great grandchildren seems logical.
For the first five years or so of my life we lived with great grandparents and I recall them being very,very old so if I do have great grandchildren I guess they will see me in the same light,a scary thought.
On the subject of grandparents I was lucky to have a full set and also a full set of greats on my maternal side of the family.

They rain is tippling down out of a dull gray sky so my trip to Mother's is off for today,the problem we have with rain is nobody up there remembers to turn the tap off again.
Ellen always buys Gemma an oddity this year it's retro sweets
