I called my brother yesterday and his daughter (my niece) answered the phone, she is all of 5 years old and very able to engage in conversation. We had a delightful conversation about the weather where she lives and how school is going and life in general. I dont remember that age but I dont believe I was quite the conversationalist or nearly as bright as the youngster, it almost made me jealous that she was was not my child. Yes, yes Penelope bought a grill yesterday. She bought one of them big over the top ones with some neat bells and whistles, I almost forgot how much I love grilled burgers. No Lowes trip is complete for Penelope if she does not buy an item that can be used outside. So she bought a weed wacker, I told her I really thought we didnt need one but she insisted it was the battery operated and it was easier to use then an electric one, forget that we have the same problems with the wire that cuts the weeds on the electric one and nothing is changed about the new one….I should just ban her from going to Lowes like a wife would a husband that always buys stuff at the local junk store..just a quick thought about stuff around the house….
