Our neighborhood taking his grandson for a walk. And the grandson wanted to be covered up to his chin with a beach towel.
"That's what he wants and so that's what we'll do," Boyd said. That's a grandfather for you, doing whatever the grandchild wants, even if it makes no sense.
Then our neighbor said something that we all fear. "When he gets to be a teenager will he even talk to me?"
He seems to be thinking it over.
And then the grandchild took over and and did it his way. Another fear every parent and grandparent fears--maybe they will do it their way, even if it's wrong.
And so it goes, down through the generations. Parents and grandparents, who have so much knowledge and love and the younger generation is determined to do it their way. Just like we did.
We could have saved ourselves so much trouble if we had just listened.
But maybe, just maybe this generation will.
