    What is or will be your grandparent title?

    No panic .... Just having one of those late night yarns, you know where to fish on the weekend, butters or crays, slips or rivers beds, beers or lots of beers you get the picture.

    So out of left feild the subject came to the floor what title are you going to run when you get pay back on the rug rats and they grow a tribe of their own?

    Me most likely ...Pop or Paaa

    What about you lot?

    I'm too young to be a parent, let alone a grandparent.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    I am a granddad and there isn't a formal bone in my body Maca.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I have been called Paw (as in Hillbilly Bears) by my children for many years, but the grandchildren use Pa as they don't know any different.

    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    Bit early for me too, our first grandson is only a couple of months old (and 15000 miles away) so not been introduced yet.
    My two grown up boys still call my Mum "Mad Nan" , as this is a name one of them tagged her with 26 years ago.
