I'm just wondering how many of your grandparents are still alive.
I'm down to zero.

Very sorry to hear IAB.
I've still got 3 grand parents around.
zero.... have been for awhile.
Zero although I have a few great aunt/uncles still kicking.
Zero. Have been since 1988.
zero for a long time, grandfathers were dead before I was born.
I have a few extra because of divorces etc...2 blood Grandparents, 2 step Grandparents left. Had a great-Grandmother live to be 103.
Almost buried all her kids. She passed in '06.
I have one left. But I got an email on Friday saying she took a turn for the worse. Shes closing in on 90. Her dimensia (sp?) is getting pretty bad.
I miss all my grandparents.
Grandparent free since 1994.
The only g-rent I liked was my my dad's mom.
However, my wife's maternal g-rents are alive and kicking.
He's 88 and a better driver than most of my friends. They regularly drive from here to San Diego or Pittsburg to visit family.
She's 85 and just got both knees replaced so she can play with her great grandkids. She's already back to walking a mile a day.
They both kick my butt in cards, but I'm faster on the bike.
One, He's 92 or 93, I forget, still living independently and lives a very active life. My wife's last grandparent just died over Christmas, she was 94.
My grandmother on my father's passed Saturday. It wasn't unexpected but still sucks. She was 85. She had been my last living grandparent since 1995.
MBC's grandmother on her dad's side is 90 and is still kicking strong.
I personally have 0.
Sq-Earl's grandmother is 93 and still going fairly strong.
None, only knew 1 of the 4. My Dads Dad was gone before he was even born, tb I beleive.
My older son is the only one to know his Grandma, his "Hommy". He knows his mothers (My ex) parents, but they are trailer trash first class, and have little or nothing to do with him since he lives with me. It makes me sad to know that my other two wont know their G-rents either. Wifes are both around, but are on the decline.
My fondest wish is to hang about to see and actually know my grandkids. Let them watch me slowly descend into total insanity...
I only have 1 left.
I was very lucky growing up, though... I had 2 great-grandmothers (till I was 11 and 14), and all of my grandparents (until I was 16 and 19). I also saw them all either daily or weekly! They were the best people ever, and I love every minute spent with them!
My gram who is left (Bummy)... I play bingo with her and her friend Lucy... super good times as well! Now if I could just get a winning card sometime...
huh, not there yet?
I have one, my paternal grandfather. He's 82 and going strong. I don't know my maternal grandparents, so I couldn't say
I have a grandma I never see. Yeah, yeah, I'm a bad grandson
sorry for your loss IAB.
I have only one, my Mom's mom.
Unfortunately, she doesn't recognize me anymore when I visit her. AFter a little while she remembers me and we have a nice visit, but the next day she won't remember that I had just been there.
zero as of a month ago. kinda strange feeling.
I have one.
I call her master yoda.
They are about the same size.
I still have 2 - my wife has 3
sorry to hear your down too 0 -
Halfway, dont rush me! :biggrin:
There is only one way to beat old ladies at Bingo. Cheat. Have you considered steroids?
My grandfather is 91. My pops is 66.
I lost my Grandpa on my Dad's side within 3 weeks of losing my G-mother on my Mom's side.
it was a tough summer! Lots of running around for funerals. Trying to study for Grad-school exams at a "wake" sucks!
My last one left us about 4 years ago.
Wife's Grandfather is still alive and kicking... but since he is only about 4 years older than my dad I'm not surprised.
I lost my grandfather when I was 1. And since then I've only had one grandparent. She is the lord of the sith. She never smiles, makes rude comments, doesn't remember anyones birthdays and when she does she gives old newspapers and stuff.
1 grandfather (86) on my mom's side left for me, my grandmother on that side died suddenly 5 years ago undergoing replacement knee surgery. 2 grandmothers left on my husband's side.
Hardest thing for me to think about is how late in life I'm going to be having kids (33) and how my parents (67 & 60) are going to have limited time enjoying them.
Sounds like mine. Last time I saw her she said "you're one of my grandsons right?" Hard to hear that after spending 26 years of my life around her. I have thousands of memories, I know she still has them, somewhere.
i have my grandma on my mom's side.. she's 96.
all these 90 year olds makes be worry about my retirement account!!

Zero, since 2003.
I lost my last grandparent about 10 years ago. My mom's mom. I never met my dad's dad, but I met his mom.
Hell I'm down to only 1 parent.
