Greg 'n Keetha Stuff

OK, let's be honest. This is really KEETHA stuff. Sometimes I write about Greg - - - but he has never in his life made one single post of his own. He has occasionally made a comment or two. So - - - come on in and visit with me, Keetha, for a while. I'd love it if you left your foot prints. (Interpretation: COMMENT PLEASE ;-)

A Boy and his Granpaw

Once upon a time a very cute and very silly little boy decided he would have an adventure with his Granpaw.

This is that boy.

First he helped his mommy open presents for his new baby sister, he even put part of the present on his head. Now that wasn't REALLY part of his adventure with Granpaw, but it was just way too cute and silly to be saved for later, so it became part of his adventure anyway.

Granpaw took the boy fishing.

Granpaw did MOST of the fishing, but the boy didn't care because there were lots of things to see and something to climb on.

The sun was setting and there was a cool breeze which ruffled the boy's hair. How could it get any better than this?

Then suddenly it did! Granpaw caught a fish, a little bass.

Granpaw showed the boy what all great fishermen do when they catch a prize fish. The boy didn't really like the wet slimy lips - - - but Granpaw said this was a cool thing to do, so he did it anyway. Granpaw's have great influence over little boys and should always be very, very careful of what they teach them.

Next, while Granpaw was throwing Mr. Bass back in the pond and washing the slime off his hands, the boy stopped to smell the posies.

Granpaw took the boy to a tire swing in the park. He pushed him high in the air.

The boy felt just like a bird.

Granpaw surprised the boy by swinging too - - - just like another kid.

But even the best of days must eventually come to an end. This one was no exception.

The boy snuggled down in his car seat and slept all the way home.

The end.

Or, is it just the beginning?

What a darling story in the life of our Macky.The pix are printing reallly well now. I can frame these!!!

Did Granpaw outgrow Papoo??? And how many times did he remind Macky not to fall in water??? How precious, and how patient Granpaw has been in waiting to take his Granson fishing.

No - - - we still call Granpaw Papoo, but for the STORY I called him Granapaw - - - more universal, you know!

What precious grandchildren! They are the greatest gift ever!

Oh, and keetha, your church pew has a story, you just don't know it! There's just no telling who sat on that pew, who sang praises and who may have heard God first calling them in that very pew!

Again, congratulations!

You're a very special Kamma and Papoo to know that little boys need a little extra love when there are cute baby Pipers around.

Praying for a speedy recovery and lots more happy faces!

Tammy - - - there's also "Midnight Train to Georgia."

But,I think I like what I gave you, so it's staying.

Nancy - - - you are so right about my pew, I never THOUGHT of that.

Lone - - - it' EASY to give Macky extra love right now since we are staying here at his house with him while mommy and daddy are in the hospital with little Piper.

If you liked this one, put "Macky's Day Out" in the search line up there above this blog - - - that is another little story I wrote about Macky a year ago at our son's graduation party.

Dr. LaBar - - - I honestly HAVE tried my hand at writing children's books - - -'cause reading them to my children I thought "I could do this." I STILL think I can - - - only finding the publisher and knowing how to go about that is quite daunting. I tried that at one time to no avail - - - - -

Did you see the note in my cbox about my mom? I am praying that she will just quietly go home in her sleep. Things are getting progressively more difficult for her - - - simple things like breathing.
