Grandpa & Grandma

Since I’ve lauded Granny Chaney, now it’s time to spotlight Grandpa, and Grandma Hawkins, Dad’s parents. I’m so blessed that I knew both sets of grandparents. I even knew some great grands!! That seems to be a rare thing, and I’m so enriched, to have known them. Grandpa was a phosphate miner. The mine wasContinue reading “Grandpa & Grandma”

Potty Possibilities

Today, just gonna say it. I’m terrifically thankful for a potty. Potty chair. Since my health took the sudden dive, I couldn’t use my left elbow anymore. That ended my career of using the real potty. 😦 So, after a few days, or a week, of diapers, cuz the evil insurance denied my potty chair,Continue reading “Potty Possibilities”

Granny Gratefulness

Granny is Mama’s mother. Mostly I’ll be talking about her, since Papa died before Sis was born, so I was still 7. Papa was a giant!! I think he was 6’2. Which isn’t really giant by today’s standards, but it was by our family’s!! And especially of mine, as a 7 yo! He was reallyContinue reading “Granny Gratefulness”

PP’s Protestation

PP has been repeatedly, and on the daily, declaring her intention to not leave this house. She is determined to live with us forever, despite her dad and the judge. Today, she said, “I don’t care if Daddy spanks me even, I’m not leaving.” It breaks my heart!! But what can I do?? Legally, nothing.Continue reading “PP’s Protestation”
