Way back when..... I'm pretty sure even before ABC got rid of the original board, my oldest had her Bat Mitzvah. The Board was a big part of my life and my spare (ahem) time. A number of my fellow BoardBuddies, many of whom are probably long past this Board, got together and actually sent her (through me) a Bat Mitzvah card.

:::: Fast forward, as I wasn't watching time flying :::::

My daughter grew up. She graduated from college. While her college sweetheart graduated and went to law school far, far away, they remained committed to one another. A little more than 3 years ago, they got married. Mind you, not only have I been able to watch my daughter grow up, but we've actually been able to watch him grow up as well. We met him for the first time when he was 19 years old. Tomorrow is his 30th birthday. Wow. But that's another story.

A week ago yesterday. my daughter made me a grandpa for the very first time! A grandson.

People have been asking me for a long time, "when are you going to be a grandfather?" To wit, I would respond, "I've got 4 kids. I'm going to be a grandfather. I'm not concerned about when." And I really wasn't concerned.

But now I am a grandfather. "Papa Ace" is what my grandchildren will call me. No shit. ACE is my initials and they will forever be remembered. Maybe I will be also.

It's all great. It's all fantastic.

I can't believe how time flies.........

Congrats Ace!

My oldest, of four, made me a grandfather 10 months ago. While they live 1200 miles away we've managed to see her (granddaughter) about every two months, or more. I'm actually in town on business and got to spend time with her yesterday.

That's awesome, Ace. I bet you'll be a wonderful grandfather.

Congrats! I became a grandfather myself in October 2017, even though I am not old enough to be one. My son was only 18 when his daughter was born. But my granddaughter is the light of my life.
