Today went too quickly. I’d like a recount, whoever is in charge of such things. I don’t think a review of the days events will happen, so it will just have to be late afternoon/early evening now. I remember when I was about twenty-five, my doctor told me time goes much more quickly when you get older. Wow, does it! Addison, our oldest grandchild, will be thirteen next month. A teenager! Holy smokes!
This young lady is as smart as she is beautiful. She has a way about her. Kind hearted, but no one will give her any guff. She is annoyed by her brother, but no one dare mess with him. She loves her family, and doesn’t want to be away from them for too long. She participates in competition dance, and she is on the honor roll. I’m so proud of her.
The Babe will have a special birthday this year, seventy!!! We’ll have to try and do a special trip or something. We loved Yellowstone National Park and we want to see the Grand Canyon. Maybe this will be the year. Niagra Falls was on our list, too. A few years ago, we purchased the twenty dollar lifetime senior citizen National Park Pass. Haven’t used it or our passports yet, but we are ready should the need arise.
Tomorrow the Babe has Honor Guard Photos. The guys do photos once a year, near the end of their year which is April – March. Photos exist pretty far back in the Post history. While he’s doing that, I’ll be working on the Newsletter for February. The regular editor has a bad knee injury, so I”ll be subbing for him. Get better soon, Leigh!
Have you ever watched the Netflix series Peaky Blinders? I like Tommy Shelby. I was shocked by his blue eyes, so I figure it’s the gypsy in his character? I am enlarging the Irish family in my novel, and I include some personality traits from the Shelby family. Wouldn’t that be a crazy lot? Wish me luck with that one. It is amazing how differently each person in a family becomes given they all grow up in the same environment. You all have different genetic traits and the environment is somewhat the same. I can attest to the fact parents can be tired by the time the last child is growing up. We overlook infractions we consider slight now which used to be major. Resulting personalities can be so different. The longer adults are away from home can also see major changes. At times, it’s hard to believe you all lived under the same roof with any amount of harmony.
Thank you for reading my distracted thoughts today. It will be a nice quiet evening at home with the dogs for sure. They love the fireplace on chilly nights, too. I will be here again tomorrow, and hope to see you then.
