A visit to my grandparents...

My grandfather slammed the other day and broke his hand. He's 90.

I asked him if he felt tough having a cast. He said not at all, it makes me feel like never doing that again.

This is where I get my love of maps. My grandfather made a map to teach my grandmother about the war. She then scrapbooked it, and we still have it 67 years later.

Posted June 25th, 2010 by the biggest single example in my life.
my grandpa recently passed away in his 90's.
i wonder how long will it take for his hand to heal?
your grandparents got to live a lot of historical events, that generation shall be the last one to have seen it all
awesome.

Both of my grandpas died before I was born, so I never new them.
But I know my mom's dad was a dick.Her step dad was cool though.
Did he break his hand doing something rad on a skateboard.

My grandpa is like 90 something too. He's old and worn but eats a lot and manages to scoot his feet and go everywhere. He's pretty sick.
It's nice your grandparenst are both alive and still have each other.
Damn, Check out D-briggz in that last post. I recognize that mexican looking dude behind him from Devin's blog posts.
Cool map.
So, It turns out my Ex never slept with anyone. It was one of her supposed friends texting me some bullshit. So she was wondering why I stopped talking to her, then she asked her friends and found out. So I guess she ended up punching that dude in the face right below the eye.Then she called me and explained everything. So we're cool now.

Is that momma templeton in the last shot?

Sick map, drawn from the head i see. Its very hard to draw a map from your head and have it look even semi-accurate. A "good job" is in order for your pep-pep.

JGonz. Does reconciliation feel good?
Posted By: Mike on June 25th, 2010 at 09:23PM PST
Yes,it does.
It's better to have more friends than more people you hate.

Jgonz glad to hear u made peace.
The map is the greatest. Personal and amazing.
It's good to have people who love you unconditionally.

that map looks almost like a cross-section of the male reproductive organs, or maybe that's just me having a perverted mind.
