I'm going to be a dad, does that count? If it does, thank you :)

My understanding of the way things usually work is that grandfathers and great-grandfathers start on that path as fathers, so yes, grands and great-grands are certainly entitled to a Happy Father's Day!!

As are fathers-to-be; congratulations, Paul! You're in for a rousing time!!

Yeah! It's more fun to spoil your grand kids than to keep your parents from spoiling your kids!
MMM maybe that's why the little darlings love their grandparents so much. :P 8-)
