a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

From The Screened Porch...

I watched the family play.
All grandsons and daughters enjoyed the beautiful day.
Football was the game of choice, for people and dogs.
The boys got hot and came in for a break.
Popsicles and ice water are always good.
The daughters and oldest grandson ran an errand,
while the youngest played at games
Nana only allows them to play.
 Yes, this is my bed they are jumping on!  My couch Jake and Zander are flipping over.  I have special games we know can only be played at Nana's.  Chase and Hide and Seek were also on the plate.

They played and played.
Papa worked on lawnmower repair.
I made a huge dish of fresh garden stir fry.
They are home now and the place is quiet,
except for someone still working on lawnmowers.

Don't you hate it when they mess up your carefully arranged sofa and made up bed? I would want to straighten out everything as soon as I could. I'm not used to being a grandmother like you are. It would drive me nuts. XOX

When mine come over to gama's house there are forts to be played in and toys to be played with and all of the things they can't do at home. I loved the pictures of them doing that at your house. Serious business playing at Nana's house.
I love the pictures.
I hope you have a great week!
