1) Son and DIL went fishing. Her parents have 2 boats, so they take the smaller one. The other day, Christina caught a 34" Bluefish. Today they go again, and she catches a 32" AND a 34" Bluefish. Thank God I have nothing in my freezer so they have someplace to put it all.
2) My Dad always took "33 millimeter films" of us. His movie camera had 6 gigantic light bulbs on the sides that made him look like a moose. My sister in OR held onto them all. HUNDREDS. She sends me the ones labeled "Jimmy Joe". (That's what my Dad called him). I can't see them because no one really has a projector for those reels. I bring them to Costco and have them made into DVD's....sight unseen.
WELL, TURNS OUT THEY ARE MY BABY SHOWER, JIMMY COMING HOME FROM HOSPITAL, HIS FIRST STEPS, HIS FIRST CHRISTMAS, AND HIS FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!!THANK YOU, DAD!!!!
I am giving them to him for his 29th B'day. He was very attached to my Dad, and my Dad thought he gave birth to him.
My Dad passed when Jimmy was 8, but they were the best 8 years a little boy could ask for with his Grandpa Joe.
