    I confess that I was having grandkid cravings today. I mean, my son is only twenty so it is way early even if he had any intention of having kids, which he doesn't. (for that matter, he thinks he is asexual ...). But he met up with a friend today and they ended up coming to our place for supper, and that friend happens to be female, and the friendly banter/trash-talking/nerding out sounded not unlike what happens with some couples, and ... you know how some women complain about unwanted bouts of baby fever? Yah, sudden grandkid fever. (it doesn't help that I've basically figured I'd be a great grandfather since I was a teenager. It is a role I looked forward to for decades and am having trouble giving up on.).

    That kind of reminds me of my mum, to be honest. She always wanted to be a grandma and has had to come to terms with the fact that she is never going to be one. Neither me nor my sister want children. I think the most important thing is not to let your feelings put pressure on your child, because I'm sure you understand that they will have to make choices that are right for themselves in life. Also, my mother has now accepted my pets as her grandchildren and is happily Grandma to one dog and three piggies!

    Also, just because a person is asexual doesn't mean they can't have children. Some asexual people chose to have biological children (most of us are perfectly functional reproductively) and some chose to adopt. There's actually a decent number of asexual parents out there, especially amongst the older folk. (as for me personally, I can barely keep myself alive, I don't think I am in any position to be trusted with another human being!)

    Loopy: yep, that is why I confessed here, to get it off my chest, away from him. As for kids, well, even as a small kid he generally preferred adults or older kids to others his age -- he has just never related well to what he calls "tiny humans". Could well relate to his non-verbal learning disorder; he struggles with things that can't be expressed verbally, and babies / toddlers can't express much verbally, so they are quite antithetical to his brain I think.

    IC I have so many things on the go, and none of them are getting done.

    IC I'm okay with this, for once.

    The new board layout freaked me out. I saw some members were "well known" and had ro check Dwes's profile to see if "infamous" was under his name.

    IC I always assume "vagueposts" on social media are about me, when it's 99% likely they aren't.

    Looks like a crappy yard sale. Might be wise to reschedule it.

    I wasn't trying to be a dick just saying not much of a yard sale. Maybe you all do things differently in Canada though.

    No worries, we have plenty more to sell other than books about cheese. Just going through stuff wondering why I bought a lot of it in the first place.

    He's right! Those are books, not yards. I bet you're not even selling any yards. What a scam.

    I agree with DWesterny. I have yet to see one single blade of fescue anywhere in your adverts!
