... when I see my children and grandchildren happy and successful it makes me feel that my own life has been worthwhile.

I really feel the same way.

My 3 grandkids ,all boys ,are bloody marvelous , a tonic to wipe away the days stupidity with the added bonus of being able to say bye when they go home !  At 18 , 16 and 12 the days of sitting on your knee are long gone but a welcome hug around the neck  is pretty good and happens often. Being taken for a pint by the eldest ain't half bad either .
 Another chapter just opening for Sue and I ,we've been involved every step of the way through First school ,helping them coup with the breakup of there parents  marriage,  onto secondary school . now with 1 going of to Uni and another one onto college we are going to have to readjust to there absence and replace with visits and phone calls .One thing is sure we are always going to be there for them (god willing ) as we are for for our own son and daughter ,Family is everything ! and I'm so sorry for any of my friends on this forum who haven't experienced similar !

G'day Topdad.
I look at it this way.
I got married at the age of 44 and had an instant family. The sons all grown up and soon produced grandsons (3, 5, 7, 8 & 9 years old). I only get to see them once or twice a year and they love their Muskypop and I luv them.
All the years prior was more time and $$$ to enjoy motorbikes. Now to teach them about motorbikes.
Cheers
