When I was your age I'd blah, blah, blah, and blah...
A post by Woody had me a-thinking. If you could pick a couple grandfathers to have for like a week or something, who would they be? Woody mentioned me and Si Robertson, I am thinking he'd probably have a good time with us g'pas. I loved my grandfathers; great guys who took me fishing, hunting, put me to work, and just loved me in spite of my knuckleheadness. But if I could select a couple of temps for a short while, I'm not sure who I'd select. Pick out your g'pas and tell us the 'who and why's. 

    Or not.

Beans and Si would work.
I want these G'pas.
I want those G'pas.
I never had a G'pa.
I like the ones I have and I'll not play your game, mister.
I like the ones I have and I will play your game.
Beans, you got no game.
I don't see anything about G'mas here... sexist.
I am a G'pa.
There is no way you will fill up the selections this time, Mr. Funnyman.
What the heck does this have to do with football?
It's hockey season.
It's baseball season.
It's wabbit season.

Ok, let me begin this mess.

Biily Bob Thorton and Samuel Jackson. I think those guys as 'temps' could really give some great life lessons to budding young whippersnapper.

Maybe even throw Willie Nelson and George Clinton into the mix. I'd soak that time up like a sponge.

I never had either gramps IRL, so continuing with that theme, I'm going with Prof. Farnsworth & 'Bubble Gum' Tate

Morgan Freeman - I'd have him read me stories all the time.
Paul Allen...because, well, duh.


Oh - and...I didn't really know my real grandpas well. One was in his 70's already when I was born (he was in his 50's when they had my dad), had had a stroke long before I was old enough to remember, and was never really "with it". The other was an alcoholic and didn't have much of a relationship with my mom until I was older. I guess once in awhile when I was in high school he was coherent enough to have a conversation with and I did enjoy those times but they were very few and far between. I've kind of adopted my husband's grandparents as my own. They're awesome.

My Grampa (mom's side) was theeee most awesome man ever. I was lucky enough to have him in my life as a child and teen. I have told stories about him here before. He wore a Fedora and chewed, loved the Steelers and Pirates..I wouldn't trade him for anything. *sigh*
If I was to get a couple of step ins Robert Redford and Sidney Poitier.

Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon....the grumpy old men

I was lucky enough to have 3 out of 4 grandparents until I was 37 years old....and by the time I was 44, they were all gone.  I also knew 3 out of 8 great grandparents.  My dad's father came from Germany, and he passed when I was 8, so I don't even remember him having an accent.

My mom's dad was a great guy. Worked in a mill most of his life, loved to fish, and enjoyed life. When he passed away there were only a few items for the family to pick through. My mom, uncle, and aunt took turns selecting their choices of canes, some dishes, pictures, and so on. They called me into his bedroom and asked me if there was anything in the pile that I wanted. He wore a Fedora everywhere you saw him, I picked that and 25 years later I still have it. 

My paternal grandfather was a pastor, as a young kid he took me fishing and knocking around. When I hit my teenage years and began to sport Chucks, bell bottom blue jeans, flag shirts, and peace sign necklaces, he spent a lot of time telling me I was going to Hell. As we both grew older, we got over all that mess and had some real good years together.

Still, I think a month with Billy Bob Thorton, Samuel Jackson, Willie Nelson, and George Clinton as my grandfathers would be awesome.

Bill Cosby or James Earl Jones... Cosby would be hilarious and Jones would be the voice of reason.

I would want Vince McMahon, since most grandfathers let you tip over their lazy boy's and find loose change.  Vince would let you clothesline him out of his.  I am guessing the hours of stories he could tell, plus the friends that would come over to visit would be worth a lifetime of memories.

I'll take BeanEaters, but I imagine it would be hard to cook for him. Everytime I give him a list of poll choices on what he wants for dinner, the answer is always going to be "other".

I have known wrestling was "fake" for 30 years.  However, the money that Vinnie Mac has, plus the stories he could tell are as real as it gets.  That and the fact that I am sure Vince, his son Shane and his son-in-law HHH would have one of the few houses in America where roughhousing is not only ok, but most likely it is encouraged amongst the grandkidsyes

They asked about who you wanted to be your grandfathers not sons. You need to choose people older than you not younger.

#24 | 494 days ago

i don't really want him, but larry kudlow is totally my tv grampa (daddy's side). everything i've ever heard him say and every mannerism is poppop. if he mentions something about the thinness of my eyebrows or the fact that i have a shirt on with a logo, i'll be super freaked out.

steve martin would be my grampa on my momma's side.

I would say that I hate to disappoint you, but as a Cubs fan you should be used to disappointment by now. I didn't say "I was thinking about you this weekend." I said "I was thinking this weekend," there are two key words missing. Thereby making what I said and what you want to believe, two different things.
