creepy.

Standard

so creepy unpacking from the family trip
and finding this giant scary baby surprise
in my suitcase.
could have been most anyone
there’s more than one suspect in the group
with this sense of humor.
once narrowed down
it was clear that she may soon
be making a surprise appearance
somewhere else
I’m just saying…
thanks, family!

rejoice.

Standard

headed off on a family fun river raft float trip 

not real relaxing as expected

but lots of adventures/misadventures instead

so many laughs and we all survived

who could ask for anything more?

returning.

Standard

with

one sister visiting

one sister gone too soon

 only brother on his way

 grandchildren in tow

we visited the place

where we had grown up.

it looked much the same

yet felt somehow not.

 much like us.

to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”

grandma or google.

Standard

when driving with grandie f

he asked me 

 what a ‘party line’ was.

he said it was mentioned

in an article he was reading

and it advised him to

 ‘ask a grandma or google’

if he needed an explanation.

I think that was a brilliant suggestion

they understood

that between the two sources

we have most everything covered. 

“as I learned from growing up, you don’t mess with your grandmother.”
