Welcome to my Home Page.
It is my hope that this home page will enlighten you about the place I call home, and as we cajuns say:
Grandmothers don't have to do anything but be there. They're too old to run and shouldn't play hard. It is enough if they drive us to the store where the pretend horse is and have lots of dimes ready or if they take us for walks they should slow down passing up things like pretty leaves or caterpillars. They should never say hurry up.
Usually they are fat, but not too fat to tie your shoes. They wear glasses and funny underwear. They can take their teeth and gums off. It is better if they don't typewrite or play cards except with us. They don't have to be smart, only answer questions like 'why dogs hate cats and how come God isn't married.' They don't talk baby talk like visitors do because it is hard to understand. When they read to us, they don't skip words or mind if it is the same story again and again. Everyone should have one, especially if you don't have television, because grandmothers are the only grown-ups who have got time."
As Mr Chapman states: "if you read it carefully, there's a lot to that 3rd graders words. Grandparents are special. If you're lucky enough to still have yours around, appreciate it." I concur thoroughly.
