Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Sunday Reruns - Mackinley and Papoo Reprise

.


It's Sunday again, and you know what THAT means!?! It's time for Sunday Favorites!!!

Sunday Favorites are RERUNS - - - if you want to participate, just repost something you previously posted "back in the day."

(NOTICE: This is NOT a current event ;-)


Thanks so much to Chari over at Happy to Design for hosting this meme, "Sunday Favorites."

I think I have already reposted this once previously for Sunday Favorites, but since it is one of my all time favorite posts, I'm going to repost it again today.


A Boy and His Granpaw
(First posted on 6/19/2008)


Once upon a time a very cute and very silly little boy decided he would have an adventure with his Granpaw.


This is that boy.



First he helped his mommy open presents for his new baby sister, he even put part of the present on his head. Now that wasn't REALLY part of his adventure with Granpaw, but it was just way too cute and silly to be saved for later, so it became part of his adventure anyway.



Granpaw took the boy fishing.



Granpaw did MOST of the fishing, but the boy didn't care because there were lots of things to see and something to climb on.



The sun was setting and there was a cool breeze which ruffled the boy's hair. How could it get any better than this?

Then suddenly it did! Granpaw caught a fish, a little bass.



Granpaw showed the boy what all great fishermen do when they catch a prize fish. The boy didn't really like the wet slimy lips - - - but Granpaw said this was a cool thing to do, so he did it anyway. Granpaw's have great influence over little boys and should always be very, very careful of what they teach them.



Next, while Granpaw was throwing Mr. Bass back in the pond and washing the slime off his hands, the boy stopped to smell the posies.



Granpaw took the boy to a tire swing in the park. He pushed him high in the air.



The boy felt just like a bird.



Granpaw surprised the boy by swinging too - - - just like another kid.

But even the best of days must eventually come to an end. This one was no exception.



The boy snuggled down in his car seat and slept all the way home.

The end.

Or, is it just the beginning?

My Dad does zero playing with his grandkids, so I always love seeing your husband with the grans. It doesn't make up for my Dad, but it makes me happy :)

Thanks Keetha!
