Traveling with Terrible Twos

Grandma and Grandpa and getting too old to travel with a two year old. At least we took time to smell the roses. And now we are home and settling back into our normal routine. Next chapter... Grandma tries to remember how to potty train so she's off to the AARP Grandparents Raising Grandchildren website and maybe a visit to She needs all the help she can get. For Little J's view of the trip see this

It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This

A room with a view
Warm sunny day
Good company
An afternoon at the Follies
Spending disposable income on yet another red hat
Soaking in the Hot tub
A stroll on the wharf
Clam Chowder and a Fresh crab louie
A night of full moon
Listening to the ocean all night
Breathing in the ocean breezes all night
Hearing the bark of Sea lions
Sinking into new pillow top beds
High thread count sheets (double sheeted no less)
Big fluffy pillows
Huge terry bathrobes
Deck chairs
Sipping quality coffee in the morning breeze

New Telemarketer Strategy

Hubby is in shower. Phone rings. Hubby jumps out of shower to answer. It's a telemarketer. Solution.... Hubby hands phone to two year old toddler. Hubby snickers as he returns to shower. A few minutes later hubby emerges from shower. Toddler is still jibber jabbering about mommy, daddy, Elmo, Minnie Kitty and Spiderman. Perhaps our number will be deleted from their database???

Labor Day

Little J spent the day with us at Stow Lake. Grandma & Grandpa are all worn out from paddle boats, feeding ducks and other assorted birds, and chasing Little J.

Couldn't bring myself to making the bed this morning. They were just a bit too comfortable.
