~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there and worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the loss of sleep. - Dale Carnegie

I was so proud to see my 2-yr. old grandson walking around waving one of my extra car flags in he living room the other day. He had taken it off the table when I went into the kitchen and was waving it high above his head, singing..."God Bwess 'Merica." It brought chills bumps over my arms and tears to my eyes as I returned to the living room to see what he was up to. I immediately starting waving my hands up in the air too, joining in on his song, and praising him on how good he was doing.

A few minutes of singing and he headed off to his next adventure. However before he took flight, I spun him in my direction to head him off and asked, "Where did you learn to sing that song?" He quickly replied, "daycare." I am very proud that both of my grandsons learned to sing God Bless America at their daycare. They also recite the Pledge of Allegiance every morning. Does this make me proud too? Absolutely.

So what is my youngest grandson up to lately? He is fascinated over the American flag. Every time we take a drive in the car that little head pops up in his car seat and he screams, "Look Nannee a fwag!"

I have to say, "What kind of flag is that?"

He excitedly replies, "merica". The pride glows on his face.

We still sing "God Bwess 'merica" and we still recite the "Pwedge of 'wegence" too.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

A boy was assigned a paper on childbirth and asked his parents, "How was I born?"

"Well honey..." said the slightly prudish parent. "The stork brought you to us."

"Ohh..." said the boy. "Well, how did you and daddy get born?" he asked.

"Oh, Your grandparents found us under a rock."

"Well how were grandpa and grandma born?" he persisted.

"Well darling, they were found under a cabbage leaf," said the parent, now starting to squirm a little in the Lazy Boy recliner.

Several days later, the boy handed in his paper to the teacher who read with confusion the opening sentence: "This report has been very difficult to write due to the fact that there hasn't been a natural childbirth in my family for three generations."

One Easter Sunday morning as the minister was preaching the children's sermon, he reached into his bag of props and pulled out an egg. He pointed at the egg and asked the children, "What's in here?"

"I know!" a little boy exclaimed. "Pantyhose!"
