Hiya, Bubba! I've never posted on this thread, but I keep checking it myself. I was always grateful for the ones who do post here and keep me entertained.
So anyway, I'm trying to finish writing about one of my latest true adventures for you - it might make you grateful you're NOT me... Not quite finished with it yet.
So here's a shorter one. Yesterday I was hauling my heavy baskets into the laundromat (yeah, yeah, my dryer went out) very slowly & carefully, obviously having trouble with my walking. This elderly grandma came over (I'm a not-elderly-at-all grandma
) asked her little grandson to hold the door for me, and he ran over and used all his strength to pull it open every time I needed him. It was so sweet I dug around in my car and found a toy that I had recently bought for my own grandson and gave it to him for being so helpful.
He was thrilled with it. He spent the next hour running around swinging the toy and pestering me with questions every few minutes, while I stood next to his grandma and tried to read a magazine. Finally he came up, looked at what I was reading, and announced loudly, "My daddy reads magazines with pictures of naked girls in them!"
So...I'm grateful for things that make me laugh that hard.
