my grandson, Jackson (in the green shirt and shorts)
people, animals, kindness, dancing, laughing, and tacos
has become a part of a new kid congress
a group springing from the legacy of
(who has now grown into a young man)
with a mission to show
that kids can help to change the world for the better
thank you to kid president for passing the torch
giving more kids the opportunity to bring good to the world
i couldn’t be prouder of these little people with gigantic hearts.

the little bee whisperer
of last summer
at age 6
tends to the hive
watching and wondering and learning.
the happiness of the bee and the dolphin is to exist.
for man it is to know that and to wonder at it.

my eldest grandson
asked me to join a book club
that would include
just the two of us
(deep thought club)
i’m very flattered .
though i’m behind in my reading
was very proud of myself
when i finally finished my book
and we had a good discussion about it.
then he told me there are 3 more in the series
i have my work cut out to keep up with him.
we’ve had many deep thought conversations
and i’ve tried to have some answers
but he usually has the best ideas
he’s 8 years old.
i’m very flattered that these are such exclusive clubs
and i was asked to be a member.
i’ll do my best.
the answer i found is you stay away from
the people who make fun of you,
and you join these ad hoc groups who understand

my daughter posted this pic of grand baby j, looking out of the mail slot for me,
calling out, ‘grandma, grandma?’

giant stick who?
giant stick mantis knocking at your door. can you come out to play with me?
aussie grandson m welcomes a friend who came knocking at his door one fine morning
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
aussie grandson m rests peacefully in the states, far away from the sharks, snakes, spiders, puffer fish, and a myriad of super venomous creatures from the animal kingdom down under. never imagining he is under the watchful eye of a woodland deer –
The best proof of love is trust.
one last cut then fall

grandson so like me
