I am probably the newest kid on the forum (That's newest kid with 5 grandchildren). I have only been playing CG for a few weeks. I hope to be good enough to post something by the end of the year.
I do have to brag about something that very few people on this forum can say. I had 2 new grandsons on the same day last week and they weren't twins. My daughter and daughter-in-law both had babies on the same day.
That makes 5 grandsons and 0 grandaughters.
Hi, kpottmeyer, and welcome to the forums This is a great place to come and get advice, motivaton, support, and refreshment. The people here are truly amazing. A rare combination of talent, skill, knowledge and, a willingness to share.
First of all congratulations on your two new grandsons.
I know how exited I was when each of my nine grandchildren was born.
Second, take heart, I had been playing for roughly ten months when I posted this last November. At age 61, my hands don't always cooperate, so I'm sure you will do just fine - maybe even post THIS piece in - say 6 months of practice. One of the advantages of being a little older is you develop the ability to concentrate and the determination to see things through. I say I can still beat most kids in a long (100 mile) bike race, since essentially, "I can hurt longer than they can".
