Grandfather.

I had reconciled myself long ago to being recognised as Manjiree’s father in law and Ranjan’s father.

On Thursday I had to reconcile myself to being recognised as the grandfather of Chutki.

A young couple who live in the same suburb as I do, who too are dog lovers have obviously been meeting the three individuals mentioned above at various forums including during walks with the dogs.

I ran into this very charming couple at a function on Thursday and during the getting to know each other process, they discovered that I am their neighbour and this is how they recognised me!

    I understand! As the mother of four young adults I am very proud of them but I am starting to wonder when I stop being their mother and have my own identity.

    I am okay with being the minion of Harry

    • My son and daughter in love are in their mid forties. This is when they are better known than their parents due to the sheer logic of life! I too am perfectly happy being Chutki’s gp.

  3. I’m not at all surprised. I was “Kaitlin’s Mom” for years. And I love being the grandmother of Kaitlin and Torben’s pups. 🙂

    I think Chutki is very lucky (and so adorable)! Is is interesting how we recognize others based on relationships.

  5. A charming story, Rummuser! It’s clear that you are quite happy with your new title—Chutki is a beautiful dog!

    I am rapidly becoming the grumpy old man over all others. Oh well.
