Seven is Super

Charlie is seven today! And it’s halfway to Christmas. Oh my! Happy 7th Birthday Charlie!

It’s exciting to be here in person to celebrate together this year.

Airedale Treat Time -Guest Blog

My grandson Jack (15) took this photo while he was rewarding Henry the Airedale with a dog biscuit.

Henry weighs in at 75 pounds but all you can see is his head and wide open mouth

Autumn in the Trails Behind His House -Guest Blog

These photographs were taken by my grandson Jack, who is 14 and a high school freshman.

He told me recently he’d like to get into photography.

My advice to him was to take a lot of pictures, study them and look for the good light.

I thought he captured the feel of Autumn quite nicely.

Scootering to School

This morning before I headed back to Pittsburgh, I got to walk with Charlie to school. He rides his scooter.

I tried to keep up but at least got the chance to document his early morning trek to school.

Wondering what they’ll do in the winter.

Kennywood and Keystone Safari Park

Grandson Jack is here for a quick visit.

What to do that didn’t involve being inside around people? Sunday night we did three hours of Fall Fantasy at Kennywood Amusement Park but what to do on a rainy Monday?

My friend V said last summer her family enjoyed the Keystone Safari Park. You drive about 2 MPH through the park. Make sure you’re by the car window! You’re feeding a wide variety of animals as they stick their beaks and big faces right in the car window.

Now You Are Six

Now We Are Six.

When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
But now I am six,
I’m as clever as clever.
So I think I’ll be six now
for ever and ever.
