Everybody knows Bush Sr said 'the vision thing' -- but wasn't he also quoted as having added 'grandkids'? Google gives me goose eggs.

I think you're remembering two separate things as one. "The vision thing" was about his presidency.

Another time, at a campaign event, he was caught on an open mic telling someone that his grandchildren were all the little brown ones

Vision Thing at Wikipedia has cites for the quote. No mention of grandchildren or goose eggs.

When he retired he mentioned that his next career would be "the granddad business."

Response by poster: Thanks all, and yes, I may be conflating 2 comments. Still, I have a strong memory of a single comment -- a combined reference even more priceless than either one alone. Oh, well, gone with the wind.
