Hi. I am Monster Grandpa, aka Royal S. Cardon. I am very proud of my family and have decided to create this blog to brag about them to anyone who will listen and to share some of my thoughts and doings with them. I have discovered that personal histories and knowledge parents acquire, often get lost because, unlike days gone by, modern families rarely live and work side by side where daily interaction would normally offer the opportunity for information to pass from one generation to the next.
They say good judgment comes from experience. Where does experience come from? Usually from bad judgment. Hopefully you can avoid a few pitfalls by gleaning some useful stuff from my posts. Please comment if you feel so inclined. Ask me questions, and I hope you will feel that you can ask for help when you need it.
To my children, grandchildren and maybe someday great grandchildren, I would like to say I am putting these thoughts and images out here to offer them for your consideration. Please don’t feel compelled to accept them as undeniable truth but only my take on things. You, hopefully, will add more light by letting me know your opinion and experiences. Call me on stuff you think is out of line and let me know what you are doing and thinking.
My goal is to pass on some of my memories, wisdom gained over my life, and to help my family any way I can.
