    GRAND Social No. 258 link party for grandparents

    Welcome back!

    I hope your June — your summer, in fact — is off to a grand slammin' start. Mine certainly is. Thanks in part to there having been no 90-degree or higher days so far. I'm no fan whatsoever of the heat of summer. Especially indoors, where I have no A/C.

    I'm pretty sure I just jinxed myself, so I'll hush up now and move on to the real reason you're here today.

    GRAND Social No. 258

    Hooray for another GRAND Social link party. Thank you for joining me!

    grand social link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
    • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
    • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
    • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
    • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
    • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:

    <div style="text-align: center;"><span class="full-image-inline ssNonEditable"><img src="http://www.grandmasbriefs.com/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1403499127249" alt="" /></span></div>

    • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.

    Hi Lisa
    I lived with only window air conditioners in Brooklyn, NY. It was so hot and humid in NYC during the summer---ugh--I don't miss that!

    I like cooler weather, too, but I love the long daytime hours of summer!

    Hugs,

    Pat

    Thank you for hosting us each week. I am with you - the heat here in the South about gives me
    a stroke - oh wait, I already had one! But I could never move away from what I know & love -especially
    the 2 grandchildren!
    Here's to surviving summer!!
    Best wishes, Mimi

    I wish it would be a constant 75 degrees or so. That would be the perfect temperature for me!

    Hope all is going well for you!
