Pretty darn good grandpa, plus GRAND Social No. 115 link party

Pretty darn good grandpa

Before kicking off the 115th edition (!!) of the GRAND Social link party for grandparents, I have just one small thing to point out about my husband, my partner in grandparenting.

Jim and I attended a birthday party for a grand nephew on Saturday. Perusing my photos afterward, I noticed something I hadn't thought too much about before, but it's one of the things I sincerely appreciate about my husband. And that's this...

grandpa and kids playing

... Jim enjoys playing with kids — even when they're not his own kids, grandkids or otherwise.

I'd say that's a pretty darn good sign of a pretty darn good PawDad... or a pretty darn good grandpa by any name.

GRAND Social No. 115

Now time for grandparent play and THE link party for grandparents. Enjoy, my friends!

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.
  • 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 your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding 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:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src=" " alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>


  • 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 blogger, 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.
