The annual Grandparents day at Blessed Sacrament School went off without a hitch yesterday. Grandchildren accompanied grandparents through Mass and then lunch without issue and indeed with great jocularity. This intrepid reporter was astounded at the number of old people in attendance, having to remind himself constantly that he too was an attendee and should be mindful of his comments.
Despite the day long rain and cold all was well. The only near incident involved a granddaughter (who shall remain nameless) balking at eating her celery sticks even after the offer of using ranch dressing as a dipping sauce. This caused one irascible grandparent (who shall too remain anonymous) to lament the sad state of American youth who would not eat their veggies.
This is Charles Martin Cosgriff reporting from Newark, Ohio.
