My grandson Kai, and I, are working out a new schedule.  Monday was our first date, and we went into H-town to the Park, and what a cool park it is.  Of course, I have only eyes for Kai, and you may see why!  He is rather handsome, if I do say so myself, but then, his pretty Mom is my Liz, so those dimples and brown eyes are in the jeans.  I mean, genes.

I left the camera in the car on purpose, so I could just soak him up.  He ran up to me and said, "Let's play TAG!"  Of course, my mind flew to disturbing scenes of me lumbering around, crashing, tripping, etc etc, and I said too fast, "Where's base?"  "Base? What's base?" his expression quizzical.  So yes, I explained to him what 'Base' is, and that it is necessary in the game of tag.  "Ok.  Base is the swing set." he said with authority (know that he is a future Police Chief.)  The swing set is on the far end of the playground.  Fine then.  I took off, dodged around stuff and through sheer surprise, beat him to it.

The good thing about leaving the camera behind, is that when I brought it out, the late afternoon winter light was exquisite.

The unfortunate thing, was that we dawdled too long, and got him home a little late, and he had to launch into homework-mode, which doesn't make him too happy, ever.  Next Monday, we are doing homework... first!  We will get used to this.

Tonight there was a big arrow in the sky.  Pointing right at me, of course.  Maybe a symbol of Cupid, since Valentine's Day approaches, and I need to figure out, once again, how many years Wayne and I are celebrating this year.  29 I believe.  Wow.  That is a long time.

Or maybe it is pointing to the setting sun, which is getting closer to rising on the other side of the world, where Egypt is re-creating itself.  Wow.  What a big job is in store for them.

Here it is, Friday night, which seems to have arrived so quickly.

Have a goooood TGIF.  Do something fun.  Smile!

Sounds like you are doing a great job of producing a good looking Police Chief who can outwit and outrun the bad guys. Yeah you!

You really made it to base before Kai? How darn impressive is that? Triple Yeah you!

29 years and still loving strong. Wow!
