I have my first grandchild due in 6 weeks, and it is a boy. I have some things that this august group will have opinions and/or experience with, and some things that will cause a chuckle or two.
My Daughter and Son in law want me to get a Whooping Cough immunization shot. Now I say bullfeathers for a couple of reasons. One, who can remember that far back, and the family doc is dead now, but I may have had it. The other is, I am 65 and have no intention of taking an immunization, particularly since in am 65, and do not trust the claims that this is a safe immunization. I remember after our son's first we never gave him another whooping cough immunization, or our daughter.
The other is, I have an SR22 for the boy, and intend to teach him shooting and the love of firearms. My Son in law is a true liberal and Obama supporter (lower case intentional). My daughter carries, so I think I will win this one. Also, I am going to teach the lad to ice skate, and introduce him to ice hockey. Cannot wait to do that.
Teach the boy to shoot and love hockey. If it works it will be nirvana!
