I Feel Great

I have been ‘Grand’ for decades, but I just found out that I’ll soon be getting a promotion to ‘Great.’

After getting everyone’s forehead blasted with a phaser infrared thermometer, we had the daughter, and her son and wife over for a long overdue, COVID-prevented family meal and visit.

The grandson and his wife provided the dessert – warm, soft, deep-dish brownies, with either French Vanilla ice cream, or coconut-flavored whipped cream.  Before they brought that out, they served up something much sweeter.  They had news that they’d held for almost four months, until they were sure, and had the chance to reveal it to the two older generations, all at the same time.  They are pregnant (Well, she is.) with their first.

The Grandson married a bonnie lass with a good Scottish heritage.  She doesn’t so much have a bun in the oven, as a solid serving of haggis.  Here is an image of their wee bairn, a Scotch egg, building up power to burst forth and amaze the world, as the first in the next generation of the NSFW Clan.

The kilt is still a bit long.  It will be a few more months before we know whether we will get a bagpiper or a Scottish dancer.  You just know that I will keep you informed.

The wife says that she is willing to start being called Gigi – GGGreat-Grandmother.  I think I’ll just stick with Archon, or G.O.D.   😀  😀

      Thanx, but I speak my Gaelic in English. 😉
      Soon we’ll have another generation to lead down the narrow but twisted path. The son and I visited the couple while she was attending Uni in Ottawa. The four of us went to an Italian restaurant. The three guys bounced puns and jokes and word-play off each other like a trilateral ping-pong game. I saw/heard her mutter, “There’s no escape. It’s genetic.” 😳

      My Mother’s parents came over from Glasgow about 1885. That’s where I claim my Scottish heritage. Dad’s Mother’s family was Scottish, but 2 or 3 or 4 generations earlier – about 1820.

      I used to tell people that I was one-quarter English, and three-quarters Scottish, until the daughter used a free week on Ancestry.com to discover that the “English” Smiths actually descended from a Hessian soldier in the American Revolution, named Schmidt. 😳 🙂
