And The Award Goes To My Granddaughter
Rare is the time when I actually am all caught up with my schedule. Whenever I think I am caught up, something happens that takes that and throws it out the window. Such was the case this past week. I was very much happy with the fact that I was on schedule and I had everything in hand. Nothing makes me feel better. Of course, this is mostly delusional, at least for me. If there ever was an award for being delusional, I am quite certain I would be at the top of the list. The amazing thing about being delusional is that you never think you are. As I was wallowing in my delusion and enjoying every moment of it, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage came and said rather sharply, "Are you ready to go?"

Grandfather's Advice to the Grandchildren After Blowing Out the Candles on His 78th Birthday Cake
The author, known to his grandchildren as "Popadon," was asked to say a few words at a family celebration recently at the Fontana Dam Resort in North Carolina. The eight children were mostly between 13 and 9 years of age, with a couple exceptions. However, the parents and a few dozen others in attendance from around the country were much older, so the idea was to include suggestions that adults might find of some use, as well.
