Looking Like Your Grandpa
Author: Ben Laney


Benjamin oh Benjamin
oh Benjamin my son
It's too late it's too late
what is done now is done
Hey with every passing day
it's become plain to see
you're just another big nut
on the Laney family tree
But son what's really funny
what beats all I've ever saw
Is that more and more and more
you're looking like your Grandpa!

------- Author's Notes -------

It is funny how time changes things. I was showing a picture of my Dad to some of my son's friends and they said, "He looks more like his Grandpa than you!" Haaa! Haaaa! Haaaa! And, it is true, he does look more like his Grandpa than I do. For some reason that makes me very, very HAPPY! If you see Benjamin, be sure to tell him, "Hey, I hear you look like your Grandpa!" Hee Heee Heee!
Love & Whirled Peas, Ben

Terrie*, with these baby blues it's strange to..

Terrie*, with these baby blues it's strange to see a Grandpa's face standing inside my son's shoes! And now Benjamin and his wife are going to have a little one of their own soon who will probably look like me! Yep, those gene things that God made are VERY amazing, girlfriend. Thank you soooo much for your comment, I am really glad you enjoyed this one.
Best Regards, Ben
