When Cars Don't Start Who Do You Call?

I had an appointment this afternoon, I was taking my Nissan. My husband was taking the Subaru down to our repair shop to have them check out the tires before we head to Florida. Well, the Subaru wouldn't start. I had to leave so as I was driving down the road I talked to Siri and had her send a text message to Alex our next to the oldest grandson. He is at work but I figured he could stop on the way home and help grandpa. As I was driving I got a call from my son Steve, he was looking for my hubs. When I got home the Subaru was gone so I figured either Alex or Steve had come to help Al. Al arrived back in a few minutes and told me that he had jumped the car off of his boat battery. I guess he didn't need my help. The next thing I knew my oldest grandson Dan was at the door. Grandpa needs help he asked. Nope I said, he figured it out. Alex had texted Dan to go help Grandpa and Steve had told him too. I guess you could say that our family communicated really well. lol What's a grandma to do, I asked Dan if he would like a prime rib sandwich, I made one in the rotisserie last night and sliced the leftovers into sandwich slices, Of course, he said yes and so we got a chance to visit while he was eating. I am the luckiest grandma to have such great grandsons and I always like to show them that they are appreciated. The way to a grandson's heart is through his stomach!! lol

I think they feel the same about you. Seeing as how they are quick to respond to your call for assistance and take the time out of their busy schedule.

You are blessed with such an awesome family. My grandson, age 7, is into cold cash and M&Ms. LOL! Get that car road ready, because I need to know you are in Florida!

A little charge was all it needed, we usually drive the Sentra and it had just been sitting too much. lol Yes the prime rib does not appeal to Jack either!! However, a slice of mac and cheese pizza goes a long way!!

This was such a nice thing to hear! It's nice that you have grandsons that will go out of their way to help their grandparents. So many youngsters nowadays wouldn't have jumped into action like that. And that prime rib looks amazing, I would have helped you out all day long if I knew I would get me a sandwich afterward! lol Hey, when are you headed to Florida? We need to make plans to meet up this year!

I am leaving on the 1st of January. I am waiting to hear when Jeanne Baney is coming down and if Paints on slate will be there. Either way, we will get together somewhere in between we have 3 full months to make it work.

They surely have the same feeling about their grandma, they love to come to visit you and they are always ready to help. We have a car power booster in case our car refuses to start.

Yes, I guess we do too but with the Parkinson's sometimes Al's brain is a little slow to work and he didn't tell me he was going to take care of it himself before I left.

We have always been a very close family, I could always count on my brothers as well when they lived nearby. We have always been there for our kids and grandkids and they, in turn, are now there for us. I still am there for my mom and most of our family has adopted this same philosophy.

Those older boys are just the best, it makes getting older a little less worrisome. I know someday they may al get married and then things will change but for now, we get plenty of attention.

Yes and I haven't seen Dan much, he was working out of state so it was a treat for me to see him. Usually it is Alex and Brandon who get the sandwiches lol
