My oldest grandchild just turned 16, my youngest just turned 2 … and they’re sisters. One makes me feel old and one makes me wish I had more grandkids on the way.
Sixteen is definitely a milestone: getting your driving license, more responsibility leading to more freedom, and, of course, the opposite sex. I keep telling my son that he needs to get his shotgun ready, the wolves are at the door.
The Thought for the Day is a verse from a song written by Rock and Roll legend Chuck Berry and made famous by Jerry Lee Lewis:
Sweet Little Sixteen She’s got the grown-up blues Tight dresses and lipstic She’s sportin’ high-heel shoes But tomorrow morning She’ll have to change her trend And be sweet sixteen And back in class again
“Sweet Little Sixteen” by Chuck Berry
