“Great Grand-dad”


"Great grand-dad when the West was young, Barred his door with a wagon tongue." He raised 21 boys without any trouble -- but now there's a great-grandson, and of course youth being what it is, *that* one gives trouble


You mean it isn't just the current generation of old people who complain about the young? :-) - RBW
