Last Thursday was Mark's birthday. Levi and I had a "Levi and Grandma date" in the morning. The first thing we did was stop at the grocery store to buy a balloon to take to Grandpa's office. The assortment of balloons all ready to buy was quite sparse. We asked for help. We wanted a balloon that said "happy birthday," not "I'm sorry.."or "first birthday," etc. The clerk told us they had no helium as there was a "helium shortage." Huh?
We looked at all the available balloons, and we ended up with this one. Go Dodgers!
Incidentally, these two quilts are on the wall in Mark's office. They have been there forever. I think he needs to redecorate. I wonder if he knows anyone who could help him out with that...
(really bad picture--taken on the run as the 4-year-old was ready to leave...)
This picture was taken by my good friend, an excellent photographer. I just love the contrast of the flower on the worn gardening glove.
Our son, Aaron, is an optometrist. He also loves sports. The eye group where he works is now the official vision care provider for Fresno State University athletes. So last week he was testing the vision of the football players. Someone snapped this pic, so many thanks to that person. We are so proud of him.
And I feel like I can safely brag about him here because he doesn't usually read my blog anyway. If this were a blog about, oh, the obsessive study of athletics aesthetics or something like that, I'm sure he would be an avid follower. Oh wait. There is a blog about that. And he reads it every day--and has even been quoted in it.
Speaking of quotes, last week after we left Grandpa's office, Levi and I made a stop at Barnes and Noble for a little snack.
After a few bites, he stopped and said, "Grandma, if you drink water through your nose, does it taste like boogers?"
I have no answer for that.
Had any random questions in the last week? Seen any funny signs? Please share!
