We are eight!




"Grandkids bring you into a sweeter, slower present. 
They show you the future at a time when a lot of your friends are thinking
 about the past. 
And they take you back to childhood--
theirs, the parent's, your own: a three-time admittance to wonderland."

~All we have of freedom, all we use or know —
This our fathers bought for us long and long ago~

Summer starts here...











“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; 

to me those have always been the two 
most beautiful words in the English language.”

then when I die I want to go where they went.”

That makes number seven,

''A wee bit of heaven drifted down from above,
a handful of happiness,
a heart full of love."
