    Zach’s mother was in the front seat of the Suzuki you were driving that night….when did I EVER sit in the back seat….???? Also recalling Zach’s very pregnant mom, aka Lorraine, was in labor for 3 days…Felicia..like father like son!

  3. I’m so happy for you. Grampa Sass!! I love it.

  4. Thanks C.C.! I am getting used to the “Grampa” moniker… :-)

  5. Hehe. Was it the Suzuki? I thought we had already abandoned it in anticipation of Zach’s arrival. Hey, I am a grandpa… can’t remember everything… :-)

  6. Thanks Matt! Great to hear from you!

    Exquisite writing, Jeff. Congratulations, and think of the joy that lies ahead!

  8. Thanks Dean!

  9. I’m with you, Jeff. Being a Dad has been great but I had NO IDEA how excited I’d be about being Granddad. Even started a website: http://LessonsFromMyGrandson.com with video lessons he’s taught me.

    Congrats to you and your whole family!

    Man driven to suicide by ex wife and divorce courts

    Chris Mackney committed suicide on December 29, 2013 because his ex wife was using the divorce courts in America to torture him and kidnap his children from him. He wrote a 4 page suicide note before killing himself.


    LATEST UPDATE: The ex-wife is such a psychopath that is she trying to copyright her ex husband’s suicide note, in order to prevent it from being circulated on the internet. She is using her lawyers to threaten legal action against websites that published Chris’s suicide letter.

    The website “A Voice for Men” also got a letter from her lawyers and wrote an article about it yesterday:


    Here’s a couple more updates:

  12. Congrats, Jeff. Even though its almost a year already. Count your blessings. My two grandchildren are so far away I only get to see them every 4-5 years in another country. Still, I”m thankful because I think my son is reaching out to me a lot more than he did before.

    The thing I want most is for him to have the kind of relationship with his son that he and I once had, but let it slip away somewhat as he got older. We learn so many things as the years go by. But now the game is about ways and means to take what I know and use it to continue to enrich the next two generations.

    That’s what we all want as grandparents, isn’t it? If the relationship is great, there are still ways to make it even better. And if its not so great, obviously, we can look for ways to improve it. It’s also obvious that sharing and fellowship with others can make a world of difference.

    Some other things are not so obvious. For too many, the cycle continues where its only when we approach the golden years that we decide to let go of crap, care more about important stuff.. or whatever it is we need to do to see the big picture.
