MEANWHILE HERE IN THE HOOD

I made a little local trip and met my first cousin who lives in the metro-plex for lunch this week.  Such a great time visiting.  Praying I have some of these genes-



Identical twins--Faye and Kaye have lived many miles apart most of their adult lives--and still look exactly alike.  A few years my senior, they both are balls of energy who are always active.   I stayed with Faye when I went to my High School Reunion this past Fall and she gave me the grand tour of my hometown. We have plans to all get together in the Spring.  There is nothing like family!




I can't show you their picture, but I am working with twin sisters at the shelter when I tutor each week.  Their names, like the cousin's have only one letter difference.  They take turns getting my goat by being dramatic.  I told them this week, there better be blood, death, or vomit before they shed one more tear over doing their homework.  I got a roll of the eyes in response---DRAMA!



For the first time in all of my volunteering, my efforts helped one of the Grand's teachers.  I was rewarded by two sweet hugs when I was spotted by the big boys.




The REALLY BIG news this week is the annual stock show & rodeo.  The boys and their parents took it in this week while Lucy and I stayed home and played.  Two year olds and big crowds do not mix well.


STILL LIVING LIFE LARGE

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
