My salute to Grandfathers!

After James was born, a friend of my Dad's asked how much he weighed. When he said 8 lbs 8 oz, the lady said "well he's a lucky baby, 8.8 born in 2008 - apparently three eights are lucky according to Asian culture. 

So today I was reflecting about my Grandad (my Mom's Dad), Ken Robinson, as today would have been his birthday and it dawned on me that he would be 88 in 2008! Three eights! I think I was the lucky one there to have him as a Grandad!  Excuse my mullet and short shorts!

Today was also a day to remember my Grandpa (my Dad's Dad), James Gordon, who passed away 28 years ago today. Another eight!  We love the name James, so it made choosing our son's name very easy because it's a family name! This is the only picture I could find at my house, it's from his wedding day.

This year I am also blessed to know another terrific Grandfather, my Dad.  Love you Dad.
Cheers to you all!
