Grandy and I hit it off let's just say on not the best note. You see, when Mark and I were newly 'courting', I was invited to a family dinner on Mark's dad's side where it seemed no one was NOT there. A little intimidating. I was quickly introduced to all the new faces including Grandy's. Then we feasted. I, being my usual piggish self, went up to where all the food was for seconds (or thirds). As it so happened, Grandy had the same thought. We were there together, just the two of us. I think I said something along the lines of "How's it going GramPy?" to which he replied "Grampy??...Now I'm Grumpy!!" And that was it. Back to the table.
If you may have guessed, this first encounter of ours has been the running joke ever since. Both of my Grandpa's have been passed for a while, but I feel blessed to have Grandy the Great as mine now. And he is great.
