The future of Magnon.



In these times of trouble and uncertainty, I look at the picture of my boys (grandsons), and they give me hope.

The world is theirs, and they should grasp every opportunity. I don't expect any of them to search-out fame or great wealth, just a good life with a family, and a healthy bank balance at the end of each year. I hope they will simply become good citizens, and pleasant people.

I don't know where this photo was taken (other than it was in Oz); but it's missing the two smaller cousins Boo Boo and Micha. All the boys are good friends, and the bigger ones look after the smaller; just as it should be.

Seeing as the above are all roughly 10 years old, it will be at least another 10 years before their lives show definitive directions. I do hope I'm still around to see what happens, but who knows!

  2. Lovely grandsons, with their lives ahead of them. Your hope they should became good citizens and pleasant people rates high on my scale of values for these young fellows as well.

  6. Great photo. They all look so happy. 4 ten year olds, quite a bundle. Can imagine how happy they make you.

    1. They are all very similar in many ways; I think that's why they get on so well. Typical 10-year-olds.

    1. I think they must have either been in a hotel or a rental home. Holidays are always fun; especially with your best friends/cousins.

  9. I am not sure I want to be around in ten years time - when you get to my age so much depends upon one's state of health. At present I am reasonably mobile and one of the friends I lunch with each Sunday is ninety seven next week and almost runs around (and went to California last year to see her grandson) - health and mobility are everything in old age.

    1. I remember a 100 year old lady saying that her secret to a long healthy life was good red meat, and Gin and Tonic. Sounds good to me!

    1. I shall certainly attempt to Graham. It's a major part of being a grandparent.

  17. A really nice family photo. I would guess the city in the background is Brisbane or Surfers Paradise.

    1. Probably Surfers; they rented a house there when visiting my youngest in Broad beach.

  18. Beautiful boys, Cro! I have 3 grands...One girl and two boys. My oldest grandson is in his last year of college. I'm proud of him. They all have my love (obsession) of books & reading. I gave them books all their lives & read to them often. Our favorite outings are to bookstores. I've indoctrinated them well. LOL! My work on earth is done. xo
