Auntie Grandma got some more pictures of her favorite niece and nephew from her brother and sis in law. That's what's so nice about having a journal on AOL. I can treat this place like my purse. And throw anything in here.
The cutesy wootsies were at the beach a couple of weekends ago.
Along with quoting Aristotle in the original Greek, my niece says
"Delicious!" now when she's had a tasty repast. My nephew is still in
the polar bear cub stage. His sis is tall and delicate. He looks like
he swallowed a baby seal, but in a good way.
The picture of the gate [if you're
trolling through the pics] is something my brother put up at the beach
house to keep the kids from doing what small children do
with terrifying results -- fall down the stairs and affect their
future SAT scores. Nice job, l'il bro. At least the stairs there are
One of my other brothers took a
header down a cement stairwell when he was two and had petit mal
seizures until he was ten years old. I remember once playing
checkers with him -- it may have been the last time. When it was his turn I looked up to
see him just
staring into space. I got up slowly so I wouldn't startle him, then I
ran screaming from the room. Crisis management was not one of my strong
suits at twelve.
Okay enough family stuff, time to get my ass in gear.
