    GRAND Social — Grandparent linky — October 22

    I'm off in the desert this week, visiting my grandsons. You'll still find posts here each and every day, though, because I'm anal a bit of an overachiever that way (and I write in the night, after everyone's asleep).

    I appreciate you stopping by for the GRAND Social in my absence. I'll be checking in now and again to visit your linked posts. Thank you for linking, and thank you for reading the posts of those who have linked.

    Enjoy this week's GRAND Social!

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog specifically about grandparenting, but you must be a grandparent who blogs.
    • Posts shared can be an old one or a recent one, your choice. I like to link up to older posts that current readers likely haven't seen.
    • To link up, copy the direct link to the specific post you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue "Click here to enter" text below and follow the directions to add your post to the list.
    • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, please, and none you have promoted on a previous GRAND Social linky.
    • No contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites.
    • Adding a mention at the bottom of your linked posts, such as This post has been linked to the GRAND Social linky, is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button using the following code:


    <a href="" target="_blank"><img src=" " alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>


    • The GRAND Social linky is open for new posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. All bloggers who link up would be honored to have you click, visit, read and comment.

    READERS and PARTICIPATING BLOGGERS: Please visit the posts others have linked to by clicking on the thumbnail photos. Comments are always appreciated by the bloggers whose links you visit, even if it's simply "Hey, stopping by from GRAND Social."

    Thank you for participating in the GRAND Social grandparent linky!

    I know you are having a great time.

    It must be hard to keep up a blog during a week with your handsome grandsons but, you're doing great at handling so many jobs at once.
    Hope you're having fun at the same time and not staying up too late getting things done while the rest of the world is sleeping.
    I think Miss Multitasker should be your new designation. Of course, that's who you've been for a long time now.

    Wow! Thrilled to see so many links! ♥ you all and will be getting around to each as quickly as possible! Thank you for sharing your posts!
