Multiples Mama as Matchmaker?

Not for my kids, but maybe for the nonogenarian set.

In posts past, I've lauded the amazing man that my grandpa -- the twins' great-grandpa -- is. To celebrate his 92nd birthday last Saturday, my big-hearted little brother came up with an incredible fantasy gift for Papa: a trip to see his lifelong beloved Boston Red Sox at Fenway.

It was an amazing, more-than-memorable event. So last night, as I watched the Republican Convention, I spied her. No one could ever replace my Mamaw, but I can't help but think a little companionship wouldn't hurt my Papa or Roberta McCain.

She'd be a bit of a Mrs. Robinson to him (at 96), but I'm three years older than Sarah and Darren's Daddy, and that works!

Can't blame a girl/grand-daughter for trying...

I love matchmaking! What a fantastic couple they would be. He is so cute and she is a knock out- I loved when she said "Mama's boy" Happy POW!
