I sit here with a lump in my throat and tears running down my face. 

We just found out that we will be welcoming in a new Steeler fan to the Chucktown family in or around September. 

This will be our first "new fan" since 1992. Yes, we are scouring the internet for Steeler gear. The Steeler ABC book is great and I know everyone can guess what "I" is for. 

The old Chucktownsteeler is going to be a Grandpa (first time).

Dude, congrats!!!!!!  Thumbsup Thumbsup Thumbsup Pi_heartbeating Pi_heartbeating Pi_heartbeating

Being a grandparent is the best thing EVER!!! All the joys of being a parent, but FAR less responsibility because all of the "discipline" stuff can be foisted on mom and dad! Laugh It's non-stop love and fun and joy... and you don't collapse in an exhausted heap at the end of the day (unless it's from having too much fun all day).

Not even kidding. It is truly wonderful.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!  Pi_heartbeating Pi_hippie Thumbsup Rockon Biggrin

We went to a gender reveal last week and found out we are having a Grandson! Everyone is doing fine and the new Steeler fan should be arriving sometime in September, just in time for a new season of Steeler Football!

Congrats  Chuck. Grandchildren are awesome. My oldest son is retiring from the Marines, and dropped anchor in Mascoutah IL. My other son has 3 more years to go before he retires from the Marines, and they are planning to drop anchor in SoCal, where we can’t afford to live. So we relo’d from Virginia to IL to be with most of our grandkids. There are cheap flight here to the west coast so we will be able to get connected with our  youngest grandson,  and even fly him here so he can spend time with his cousins. 

So when is the blessed arrival due?

congrats again Chuck

The little fella should be making his grand entry mid-September.
