Sole model, plus GRAND Social No. 170 link party for grandparents

Sole model

My daughter Megan has a great resource for buying and selling used goods. It's a Facebook community group called Swip Swap, and all those buying and selling are located in her community. You post something for sale or something that you want, and in no time there's a swap going on between folks mere minutes apart.

Megan has bought and sold quite a bit through Swip Swap. Saturday evening she texted me a photo of some great running shoes she wondered if I'd want that were just $10. I said, "Sure!" She said, "Sold!"

Soon after, she had the goods in hand and sent me this photo of Jak modeling Gramma's new K-Swiss size 7.5 running shoes:

I'm not sure which is better: having a daughter who looks out for my running shoe needs or a munchkin who models them before they're packed up and sent to me in the mail.

I suppose it's pretty much a tie, as both make me one fabulously fortunate grandma!

GRAND Social No. 170

Thank you for joining this week's link party! Please share links to your blog posts, if you're a blogger. One and all—blogger or not—are invited to visit the shared posts from our grand grandparent blogging community, leaving a comment if you have the time.


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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Adding your link adds you to my weekly email reminder the GRAND Social is live. Feel free to unsubscribe from that email if you no longer wish to receive reminders.
