Grandpa Waits for Me

The grandkids are over for the weekend.
This is what Connie Francis would be singing in this situation . . .
(To the tune of "Where the Boys Are')
Where the toys are, Grandpa waits for me.
A smilin' face, a warm embrace, two arms to hold me tenderly.
Where the toys are, Grandpa’s love will be.
He's sittin’ in his re-clin-er and I know he's waitin' there for me.

In the world of billions of people I think he looks just fine,
Then I'll eat his treats and play his games and tell the world he's mine.

Till we get there I wait impatiently.
Where the toys are, where the toys are,
Where the toys are, Grandpa waits for me.

Till we get there I wait impatiently.
Where the toys are, where the toys are,
Where the toys are, Grandpa waits for me.

  1. I can hear it ... and for some reason it's making my eyes blurry ... Your grandkids are so lucky to have you two for grandparents. They'll understand how lucky they've been as they get older.

  3. Add me to the sweaty eyes contingent. I never knew any of my grandparents (or any family other than immediate family) and I do feel the loss. And am very glad for those who can experience the joy.
