We're going to have to team up. My daughters each say they're stopping at 2.

Re: PBaldy and his growing family tree

Good grief! Catalina, I don't know whether to congratulate you for having such a prolific family or commiserate with you for the chaos at family gatherings.

When I was a kid, families were less likely to spread out. My maternal grandparents had nine kids who lived to adulthood and they had one to three each, and by the time I was old enough to care, some of that next generation had one to four each. Some of our family reunions had 70 people in attendance from four generations,and that was 50 years ago. The youngest members in that long-ago bunch by now have become grandparents themselves. In another thread I mentioned being on Ancestry.COM and searching for family trees. It is becoming a monumental work.

Re: PBaldy and his growing family tree

I have only one grandson (2 1/2). But understand the large family aspect. One of my uncles on my father's side had 12 children (only three of us kids) and another uncle had three children. Meeting at the grandparents house for Thanksgiving or Christmas was quite interesting.

My wife's ancestors include convicts deported to Australia in 1799. The woman was 17 when she was sent here and her husband 18. They had ten children, and the following two generations in my wife's line also had ten each.

By the time the matriarch died she had over 500 living descendants. Imagine their family gatherings.

I expect my wife is related to a fairly large proportion of Australians.

BTW. The stories at school when we were kids told of people being sent to Australia for "stealing a loaf of bread". That is exactly what she did. Plus a tea service, a tablecloth and piece of meat etc. It appears she walked off with a who table setting bundled up in the tablecloth.

Originally sentenced to hang, the sentence was commuted to being "transported".

Re: PBaldy and his growing family tree

Ah, sounds like America author Mark Twain's family tree - a tree with but a single branch and a dangling rope.

But then again, he was known to exaggerate in his writings.

Re: PBaldy and his growing family tree

Perhaps loosely related to this thread, I just had an email containing these lines...

Quote:
The legacy plan will exist until the shutdown of the old fixer API for new registrations.
Of course, you are grandfathered in this one, as long you don't cancel your account.
I'd never heard of this phrase before
Polite way of saying I'm an old user therefore they'll be nice to me?

EDIT - looked it up
To be "grandfathered in" means you are allowed to keep doing something just because you've been doing it for a while already, even though you would not otherwise meet the new (stricter) requirements.

Same difference really

Re: PBaldy and his growing family tree

Congrats to Paul and everyone else. Grandkids are fun and as has been noted you can hand them back, if I regenerate I will miss out the middle person. I have two boys aged 5 and 7 and on a recent holiday with them they out ran me, beat me at football and rugby and in the pool, but I am still king of the air-hockey table! I'm lucky in that they live only a 5 minute walk away.

Brian

Most of them live fairly close although we don't see them often. One of them is now 10 years old and the last time I saw him he was just a few days old.

Anyway, since I cannot impress you with my mediocre Access skills I though I would try it this way and stand out in the crowd.

Re: PBaldy and his growing family tree

I know how you feel about those growing kids. I remember rocking my oldest grandson to sleep under a full moon. (He liked it like that, go figure.) Now instead of being a shoulder hugger, he's a tall, lanky 6' 2-3" - reminds you of Jeremy in the "Zits" comic strip. OK, it has been more than 10 years - but I still remember little T-boy on my shoulder squirming, squirming, squirming... and then suddenly going as limp as a sack of potatoes. Now he can literally eat a bowl of soup off my head assuming I would be steady enough to balance one. (Which I'm probably not.)

Re: PBaldy and his growing family tree

Whoa! Catalina, that's great. My mother's family had nine total. By the time the next generation rolled around, we had family reunions with as many as 70 people showing up. Over 50 cousins. Total free-for-all - but a great memory.
