Random Stuff

I hung out with the boys for a couple hours while their folks went to the local movie theater. I watched them play with their Lego robot for awhile. We listened to a podcast I have called “Stuff You Should Know”. This episode was about how body armor works. Quite interesting. We watched Tom & Jerry cartoons. Are there any good cartoons being made these days? There’s nothing to compare with watching characters get blown up, burned up, tied up in knots, exploded, and then appear good as new. The boys (and frankly I) love The Pink Panther, Popeye, Tom and Jerry… I have to be knitting while I’m watching/listening. But I know when a good part occurs because Joe will say, Grandma, watch this.

Before they started getting ready for bed I told them each to go get a story book for bedtime stories. I suppose that eventually I won’t be able to talk them into letting me read to them, but I’m going to hope that maybe I’ll be able to get in occasional poems or random picture books squeezed in somehow for a long, long time. They each picked out a Dr. Seuss book. Well, Will actually picked out a “faux” Dr. Seuss book. It was written by Jack Prelutsky and someone else, in the style of Dr. Seuss. Hooray for Diffendorfer (or something along those lines). Sorry, I’m not taking the time right at the moment to Google and find the right name. Here’s another thing I’m not Googling — maybe someone can let me know the answer. Their home history lesson of the day was about St. Augustine, Florida. Is St. Augustine the capital of Florida or is Tallahassee?

007Will took all of today’s photos with my camera. First one here is the Lego robot thing they’re building. Pretty clever. He took photos from all angles.015 Photo two is of Joe in a red hat I knitted, family laundry in the background on the drying rack. Photo 3 is one I took actually, Will on the couch in his favorite corner of the couch cuddled up with their flannel popcorn 019quilt. By the time I took this photo I had figured out how get the date stamped on photos on my camera. Photos 4 and 5 are the same photo of Joe, one I let Windows “fix”.

    Tallahassee is the capital.

    St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied settlement occupied by Europeans in the United States.

    (And you were close, it’s Hooray for Diffendoofer Day)
