“Grumpsie??!! What Kinda Weird Name is Grumpsie??!!”


 (Not to be confused with another fellow with a similar-sounding nickname!!)


Several years ago my wife and I flew out to Chicago to celebrate the 80th birthday of  her Uncle Sy.  (Mr. Seymore Okner, of Blessed Memory)

Uncle Sy was a kind, loving, fun, and very charitable man.  (Just ask many of the charitable Jewish organizations in Chicago and beyond.)

I was taken by Uncle Sy’s very special and adoring relationship with his grandchildren, who called him “Grumps” or “Grumpsie.”  I resolved that Uncle Sy would be my role model.

I want to have the same very special relationship with my grandkids (grumpkids??) as he did.  I want to be a “Grumpsie.”

I hope that by borrowing the title I can somehow manage to get there.
