    Default "Dear future grandson"

    "I know you're not due for another 3 months, but I'm just giving you a head's up. Grandpa's going to retire in about 3 years, and I'll have plenty of free time on my hands then. WE'LL have plenty of free time on OUR hands. So be ready. Grandpa's got plans."

    "P.S. There's 2 geniuses I'll teach you all about when you get here. Nikola Tesla. Jack Vale. See you soon."

    Congrats Grandpa.....have another one myself due next month. Speaking of farts, one of the first things I taught the first grandson was the old "pull my finger" gag. That went over big with his mom.

    I hope you'll introduce him to OTHER geniuses...you know, John, Paul, Jimi, Pete, etc.
    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!

    Oh, that's a given !
    "Now, the Hendrix album we just listened to, I have to tell you that there are some people in this world that don't acknowledge the Power of Hendrix and question his guitar playing. These people are what is known as Evil: we avoid these people whenever possible."
    And he'll get introduced to the 3 Stooges (beginning comedy) and then to the Marx Brothers (more advanced level).
    He'll have choices to make, as when we explore the theory of Tubes Rule together.
    And he'll have to determine for himself the advantages of different source material. Is vinyl worth the "trouble" ?
    I have my opinion, but he can form his own of course.

    .... then it'll be off to the zoo, with Jack Vale's Wonder Machine. Or .... the Art Museum. Oh, yeah. The Art Museum.

    That art museum better have some Super Hero pics. Little boys are all about the Super Heros these days.....and ice cream and candy of course.

    If you'll be any kind of grandpa like me, spoil the crap out of 'em. The downside is your kids will say "how come you never did that for me ? " That answer is obvious, but nothing is as sweet as spoiling the little ones and sending them home dreaming of the next visit. Nothing can possibly be as comforting seeing that little smile when they see you.

    Hope the little one brings you as much joy as mine have.
