    My wheels for the week! Plus GRAND Social No. 263 link party for grandparents

    My wheels for the week!

    Welcome to Monday! I'm not typically super excited at the start of a new week — even folks working from home find it a challenge to muster motivation on Mondays. But this week I am exited. Because this week I get to drive a 2017 Lexus GX 460 each and every day... free for review!

    The luxury SUV in stunning "Nightfall Mica" (such a pretty blue, right!?) was delivered to my home Friday evening, and I soon hit the road to sample its many amenities.

    First major destination: Denver! Yesterday Jim and I surprised Andrea in Denver by showing up in the sleek wheels to chauffeur her about for her 32nd birthday happenings.

    Coming this week: I'll be chauffeuring James to and from his summer camp activities in style. I may even pop in a DVD for my bonus grandson to view from the backseat during the tips to and fro. (Yes, the sweet SUV has DVD screens in the back of the headrests for passenger pleasure!)

    Fun, fun, fun!

    Yep, I'm excited. And I'm excited to share my review of the lovely Lexus GX 460 with you. Coming soon!

    GRAND Social No. 263

    Also exciting: another GRAND Social! Thank you for joining me for the 263rd link party exclusively for grandparents. I'm delighted to have you along.

    grand social link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
    • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
    • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
    • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
    • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
    • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:

    <div style="text-align: center;"><span class="full-image-inline ssNonEditable"><img src="" alt="" /></span></div>

    • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
