There are Grandkids....... I love 'em all

I received this e-mail from one of our grand kids. (Everyone of the grands are sweet and lovable (like yours, if you have 'em)).  But I had to smile at this one, an e-mail and I received a picture of my old hiking boots.:

Grandpa,
I don't know if you remember giving me these hiking boots awhile back from your time on the AT, but I wanted you to know they're still getting some use =)




Also, now I can say I've walked a mile in your shoes!  Or several miles, actually haha.

Love ya!

Josh

What a great email to get! I can imagine after you read it you had a smile from one side of the face to another one and you still smile when you read it :)

It's a joy to hear from Grandchildren. Those must have been some really good boots to be able to pass them on after walking the trail like that. How great is that !

I am late commentated don't have any grand dependants. On the blog yesterday the yellow
car was a 59 Dodge. Remember I drove one for 10 years but it was white with black fins.
I ordered it from the dealer with a special paint job. I loved that car..

If he takes after you and puts miles on those shoes hopefully he will love hiking. That would make a gift that keeps on giving.
