Worse Than Otis.....

My oldest son and family are visiting this week from Oregon. My youngest grandson, named after me() is about as all boy as they come. If it can be destroyed, he can get 'er record time! This morning he wanted grandpa to teach him how to cheat at cards with grandma.....without getting caught. Why he would come to me, I have no idea...maybe he has heard "you are just like your grandpa" a few too many times?

If we could bottle all their energy, think of how rich we would be!

Natural light...just a quick snapper. He is a great little guy....but can wear you down quickly....they are like a Lithium battery.......strong and full of power....and when they are drained, they just stop dead in their tracks.

Rupert, that smile reminds me of Dennis the Menace, how cute. I think it would of been smarter if you visited Oregon at this time of the year. Have fun and don't let Otis teach him any of his tricks. Bob

Thanks was a fun day, but wore me out! These kids have only an On/Off setting, and it doesn't go Off until grandpa is pretty near exhausted.
I learned a lot........these kids watch a lot of TV, they know more about snakes, lizards, whales, sharks, Bigfoots, and a million other subjects at their young age than I have learned in 65+ years!
I also learned that "Squirrels can't talk"...but "they can E-mail".....
