HAHAHA. is he cute or what?
practicing for this
uh. you know. when he’s a bit bigger.
nothing funny about that.
i wasn’t laughing. sorry sir.
you have my total respect.
like a lamb.
this is what a little lamb looks like.
you know that old saying . . .
if march comes in like a lion it will go out like a lamb?
that applies i guess to everywhere in the country
except this prairie plain where i live.
“when the wind comes sweepin’ down the plains”
they don’t write songs about you
unless you’re serious.
we have serious winds!
so . . .
i don’t know if we’ll come in like a lion or a lamb.
but you can be sure of one thing.
it will be wind of some kind!
march 1, 1897
is also my grammy tell’s birthday.
she would be 116 years old.
i miss you gram. to this very day i miss you.
you were a wonderful role model and lady.
i learned much from you. but how i wish i could visit with you now.
i would ask all about when you were young.
what it was really like.
we never do that you know.
we’re too busy living our own lives i guess.
just for fun i looked up the NY times.
she was born in the state of new york.
here are some headlines . . .
from the New York Times
gram would be a 10 year old girl.
just learning about life.
