Jeopardy. "Alex, for $2000, Is there Life After Graduation"? "What is Sky diving?"


Yes graduation is over now.  The end of one life and the beginning of another.
My son and grandson wanted to do something to remember the occasion.
My son is my grandson's Godfather and has been quite faithful these 18 years.
They decided to tandem sky dive together.
They planned it for a year.
What we didn't plan is that I would go with them!!!!!!!!!!
I  had always wanted to skydive - and I felt if I didn't right then - I probably would never have the chance again.
So I did it with my son and grandson.
Three generations. 

WHO IS THIS?  ME! If it plays!

Isn't that cute?

Okay this is cute too - son and grandson signing in to Sky Dive.

One of the best days in my life.

We all landed - safely.  I did land HARD on my bum and scooted a couple feet - ouch!


He loves getting petted by his boy.
His chair looks so ratty but he loves it.


I try to wear my hair like that!

What an exhilarating experience that had to have been. Congrats ! I cannot even imagine sky diving. Something you'll definitely remember for years and years to come! Good for you!

You are so brave to sky dive...not me. I love the Polish wedding, you always find such funny things to post.

Holy moly woman! You are BRAVE!! Nothing would get me to jump from a plane. Wow am I impressed and what great memories for all of you! I am with Disco. Curl up in my favorite chair and let others to the sky diving!

Oh my gosh, that's awesome, Sandie!! Can I go with you? I've always wanted to try sky diving, AND YOU DID IT! You have to e-mail and tell me how it was. What a great adventure you had with you son and grandson. I chuckled at the Polish quote because I'm part Polish, not sure you knew that! hehehe.

Hello Disco. You are so loved. : )

That was wonderful! Congratulations, Sandie. The regrets we have most in life begin with the word “No’. So glad you said ‘Yes’.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

WHAT??? You went skydiving??? How awesome!! I would love to do that but I couldn't trust my knees for that landing. Way to go!!!!

betty said...

I watched the video! I am so proud of you Sandie!! Wow!! I'm glad you conquered your fears and just got into that plane and jumped when it was time! What a great experience to have done it with your son and grandson! I know you all will remember this day forever!!!

That is neat that your son has been a great godfather for your grandson! I'm sure a great mentor and positive roll model!

You definitely are Sky Queen!!!
My boys have done that but I am too chicken...
Good for you and I'm sure you made the boys proud.
Love the "Conduct Becoming of a Crone and her hair-do.

WOW- Girlie... That is AWESOME..... Can't believe you did it.... I would LOVE to do that.... Terrific Experience.

I posted a blog post today.

Susan said...

COURAGEOUS! That is what you are, little Chatty. You are beyond AMAZING. Imagine jumping out of a plane and flying through the air to the earth. Oh, My. GLORY. You GO girl. Well, I should say, "You WENT girl." SO PROUD OF YOU!!!!! Your whole post was great. Loved it. Susan

Sandra said...

I don't think it took courage to jump I think it took CRAZY! I can't believe you jumped out of the plane. I will not even go up in a plane.. good jump, glad you went with your boys, love the photo of the three of you. good job on doing what you always wanted to do... good job on the video also..

Lawdy lady … you astonish me. They don't PRINT enough money to have me willingly step out of a perfectly good airplane. I'll bet Andy considers you the baddest, ballsiest g'ma on Planet Earth!

Ginny Hartzler said...

WHAT??!!! WOW!! What an adventure, good for you!! I would never have the courage!! And yes, the video did play! I love the Polish wedding joke. I had been wondering about that landing, glad you are alive and well!!

That's very brave of you, what an adventure☺ I am Polish, so the joke caught my eye☺

Nonnie said...

WOW! WOW! WOW! Never, I mean never would I consent to trying that! You are a very brave lady and I applaud you! So glad you had such a wonderful experience, except for the hard landing! So good of your son to be so faithful to your grandson. He is a very blessed young man to have so many loved ones supporting him throughout his life!

Abby said...

WHAT!? You went skydiving?? Wow, way to represent!
I watched your video and the landing did look a bit fast/hard to me.
Congratulations, what a great day for all of you!

natalia20041989 said...

Have a lovely day, I am following☺

natalia20041989 said...

You asked about my following- I can't see myself in your last followes either, but I am sure I have to be there somewhere, maybe check all your list of followers? Before me, you had 708 followers and now you have 709☺

Buttercup said...

Oh my! I've been a total chicken about sky diving, but you may be my inspiration. How exciting!

LL Cool Joe said...

Ouch that landing looked painful but well done! Very brave. I bet you'll remember this for years to come!
