Message to Estranged Grandchildren

To My Biological Grandchildren…

You all are now young adults. I have often wondered if you have ever questioned why you have not had a Blacklidge grandfather and step-grandmother in your lives for these many years. I wonder about what you have been falsely told by those really responsible for our absence. Those would be your parents, primarily your Blacklidge parent. At some point, you may want to know the full story. You and we have missed much in these years. Marcia and I wanted very much to be a part of your lives. We want the very best for you on your paths…. always have.

Our love, Your Grandfather Blacklidge and Step-grandmother Marcia


I cannot believe how long it has been since really attending to this site. It looks like I posted one post all of 2020 so far. I need to get active again. The United States of America is at a tipping point. We will save the Republic or lose it depending upon the final outcome for the Presidency……. Trump or Biden. It is that serious.
