ON THE BACK BURNER

JANUARY 17

I got the absolute best birthday present from my visiting Grandson. There were three carefully wrapped gifts for me. He even used the Uchitelle special wrapping paper..a sheet from the newspaper. He would have liked to use the colored comic pages, but our newspaper doesn't have comics. He remembered that I had written in my Blog that my Daddy brought me a present every day. Simple ,I thought of you today , type of presents. So my thoughtful Grandson gave me a sharpened No. 2 pencil , a package of Big Red Gum, my favorite. And a tootsie roll pop . The tootsie roll was an impulse gift , he said. He saw them in our kitchen drawer and thought that would round out the presents. I love the pencil the best. It writes really dark and the eraser works quite well. I love a good pencil that writes dark. That is the only thing that I got that I will not share. So thank you Grandson for making me really laugh and feeling very happy that I can include you in my circle of love.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
