Winter New Moon (cold M00n)
At breakfast this morning I sat two tables away from Miss Rodeo Wisconsin. I know this because she had a big sash on that said so. She looked like a wholesome gal and a good choice.
I’m not at the Doubletree. Instead, I learned my reservation was for the Courtyard Marriot. I did this back in August of aught 9 so the details had become fuzzy. Oh, well. I gotta get on the road more.
The love of small children is a gift freely given, honoring this gift may be the prime directive of adulthood. Ruthie, after an initial hesitance, was glad Granpop had come. She spent a good bit of time running, then jumping on me, sometimes asking me to close my eyes. Then she jumped as a surprise.
She also showed a me a move she learned at dance class. This consists of a left hand on hip, the right raised in the air and loping around the house like that. When asked what it was called, she said, “Horse.”
It’s always fun to catch up on grandkids and their parents.
Gabe has a few words now, one of which sounds a lot like granpop. or, maybe, blastoff. or, maybe bad dog. something like that.
The stone porch Jon and Jen created looks spiffy, too. I hadn’t seen it.
Stock show later today.
