Grandpa’s shoes

Okay, I will have to confess to the world. This trip to Colorado is going to have me doing the “Ugly Face Cry” on the way home.

This hard case is not as hard as she thinks she is.

A little more about Grace here before I forget once more. She is an old girl. A 1986 Ford F-150. Grace and I are similar in that it takes us a little while to get up to any momentum of speed. Once we do get going we can keep on going πŸ™‚

Our grandson is a different matter all together. He is a ball of energy :-). Being a grandmother is a mixed blessing. As I watch him try to put on Joe’s shoes….


Click on this link to see a short video of Simon in “Poppa” Joe’s shoes. He makes my heart feel like it is as big as the universe.

Today Simon is 3 years old. He and Poppa are starting the day with a game of Solitaire πŸ™‚




The delights of children πŸ™‚ – big and little, LOL. The blessings in my life I am truly grateful for.

    Awww bless him! What is it about ‘big’ shoes that children love? Dylan came waltzing into the lounge wearing Jill’s high heel boots – put me in mind of Puss in Boots πŸ™‚ He certainly thought he was the cat’s whiskers LOL
    So glad you arrived safely at Tiffan’s with Gracie and Simon gave it the his seal of approval.

    Love and hugs

    LOL…So fun! The video is great! I thoroughly enjoyed the turkey discussion as well! We’re back to needing the snacks, I see! Turkey is my FAVORITE!! I have to wait until Christmas now, since our Thanksgiving was in October!
    Oh, my dear Leslie! Who EVER said YOU were a HARD case? It sure wasn’t me, my sweet friend! Nobody with a heart as big and giving as yours can ever be called a hard case! πŸ™‚

      Our Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday. We are celebrating it early with our family since work and family schedules are plumb crazy right now.

      Thank you Shar πŸ™‚ Do you, way down under in New Zealand, have a “Thanksgiving” Holiday? If you do, when is it? You know….inquiring minds want to know πŸ™‚ Also busy bodies and nosy Parkers want to know also πŸ™‚

      Love you Shar – Leslie

      I have to tell you that I am glad I don’t have to live in the same house as that little ball of fire and energy on a daily basis. He makes me exhausted just watching him πŸ™‚

      Simon and Joe had a great birthday celebration πŸ™‚ This was the very first birthday of Joe’s where his children made a big fuss over him and made a party out of it. That was a real treat for me πŸ™‚
