Topic tags/keywords: how many grandpas grandmas grandpa grandma

I have seen several with some sort of grandpa indication in their name and many making projects for grand kids. How many of us are grandpas or grandmas?

Count me in this group as well….. One 2yr old grand daughter and a second grandaughter as of 5:43 this morning….. Just as the hurricane was getting wound up in this area….. Why do births always seem to occur during the worst weather?
