Keeping the Grandchildren

We’ve had a nice couple of days keeping Kara and Zachary while Kevin and Leslie took a little get-a-way trip to North Carolina.

Here’s nice picture Kevin took of Kara and Zachary a few days ago. They were on a hike at Bays Mountain Park in Kingsport, TN. I like the waterfall in the background.

Check out the Bays Mountain Park website.



Something New
Have you seen this new toy called the EZY Roller? Well, if you haven’t, I think you think it’s pretty neat. Nana and Papaw (Leslie’s parents) bought one for Kara and Zachary. Watch this short video to see how it works.

Just when I think they’ve invented every toy that can be invented, they come up with something new!

How long has it been since you climbed through a barbed wire fence? Do you remember? Ever tear your clothes getting through?

Joke of the Day

A farm boy accidentally overturned his wagonload of wheat on the road. The farmer that lived nearby came to investigate.

"Hey, Willis," he called out, "forget your troubles for a while and come and have dinner with us. Then I'll help you overturn the wagon."

"That's very nice of you," Willis answered, "but I don't think Dad would like me to."

"Aw, come on, son!" the farmer insisted.

"Well, OK," the boy finally agreed, "but Dad won't like it."

After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked the host. "I feel a lot better now, but I know Dad's going to be real upset."

"Don't be silly!" said the neighbor. "By the way, where is he?"

"Under the wagon," replied Willis.
