What's that I hear?
Jack, Dada, Grandpa and "Chewdee" (Chewey, my dad's yellow lab, who Jack is crazy about), have gone to the country for the whole day! I am alone, here in the house, no children, no neighbors, no meals to cook, no messes to clean, I am free!!!!!!!!
Conversations with Grandpa as they were leaving:
Grandpa hands Jack a cookie, then he is laughing.
Me: "What's funny?"
Grandpa: "He said thanks when I gave him a cookie."
Me: "He says please, thank you, and you're welcome."
Grandpa: " Yes, but he said it unprompted."
Me: "He does that almost all the time."
Grandpa: "Well, I'll be damned."
The ducks above are so cute, they are old hard plastic toys, picked up somewhere outside of Chicago.
