My Personal Check in with you and I made two new friends…alright!
I am checking in with you in this episode. We discuss my recent visit with my new granddaughter and how my wife was in heaven by getting to hold and take care of a newborn. I go into some detail about conducting my annual review with my 2 yr. old grandson. (We still have some things to work on before his 3 yr. review)
You and I sit down and you let me share some fond memories of my cool grandpa and what he meant to me and my family. I also share a story that was one of those “mom and grandma don’t need to know” stories. Those “don’t tell mom” stories somehow are the ones that stick in your memory the longest. I don’t know why but they do.
I was able to make TWO NEW FRIENDS in the podcasting universe who have been supportive and just great all-around guys.
I met Steve Owens by just reaching out to him after I heard his interview on Vinnie Tortorich’s podcast about health and nutrition. Steve has an awesome podcast called Fascination Street. Steve’s podcast centers on drawing out each guest’s powerful and interesting personal story. Some guests you will know by name and others are fantastic people that you will meet for the first time on Steve’s show. Steve’s podcast can be found here: https://fascinationstreetpod.com/
This fun episode is another conversation with a granddaughter of two COOL GRANDPAS. My awesome friend Diana shares her memories of Big Jack and Grandpa. We discuss how Diana learned first hand how important it is to be able to pivot in life when challenges and opportunities are presented to you.
We also discuss how her relationship with her grandpa manifested itself by him calling Diana in college to celebrate his hole in one while he was in his 80’s.
Diana also shares with us the list that she and her grandfather put together on how to live to be 107. (See Below)

In this conversation, James and I discuss his background as a member of the US Army Band, marring his high school sweetheart and being a cool grandpa to six grandchildren.
