... got to meet Yogi.... and has the pictures to prove it!
Now I am not a really big baseball fan..... in fact I am not a fan at all.......
But Yogi Berra is one of the world's best word manglers.... and that makes him a hero of mine!
If anyone has NOT read Yogi quotes.......ya gotta check 'em out;
"You can observe a lot just by watching."
"It ain't the heat, it's the humility."
My favorite has always been:
"If you don't know where you are going, you will wind up somewhere else."
which is how I ended up on the blogs......and meeting so many nice people.....
sometimes when you come to a fork in the road, ya gotta take it!

Rotten Nasty Kids~!!!!!!!!!

It was da Bug what done it!!!!
Da Daudder.
She was telling me I should get a facebook thingee---- cause my brother, Uncle Lurch, and my sister Auntie Bo have them..... and send photos all the time....
"Dad, everyone has one! Even Uncle Chuck..... and Adam, Eliot....", and she names off various relatives and her friends and Max's friends. And I kept telling her, "Sure, sure.... I'll get around to it."
So she went and set up a Face Book account for me...... and in twenty hours I get photos from all these marvelous kids I haven't seen or heard from....... in awhile.

Jess sends one where he tells me to get 'Max off my back'
Zerbe sends one of 'Moving Day' in Savannah....

For Aunt Helen, who I miss Dearly

Once there was a giving tree who loved a little boy.
And everyday the boy would come to play
Swinging from the branches, sleeping in the shade
Laughing all the summer’s hours away.
And so they love,
Oh, the tree was happy.
Oh, the tree was glad.
But soon the boy grew older and one day he came and said,
"Can you give me some money, tree, to buy something I’ve found?"
"I have no money," said the tree, "Just apples, twigs and leaves."
"But you can take my apples, boy, and sell them in the town."
And so he did and
Oh, the tree was happy.
Oh, the tree was glad.
But soon again the boy came back and he said to the tree,
"I’m now a man and I must have a house that’s all my home."
"I can’t give you a house"she said, "The forest is my house."
"But you may cut my branches off and build yourself a home"
And so he did.
Oh, the tree was happy.
Oh, the tree was glad.
And time went by and the boy came back with sadness in his eyes.
"My life has turned so cold," he says, "and I need sunny days."
"I’ve nothing but my trunk," she says, "But you can cut it down
And build yourself a boat and sail away."
And so he did and
Oh, the tree was happy.
Oh, the tree was glad.
And after years the boy came back, both of them were old.
"I really cannot help you if you ask for another gift."
"I’m nothing but an old stump now. I’m sorry but I’ve nothing more to give"
"I do not need very much now, just a quiet place to rest,"
The boy, he whispered, with a weary smile.
"Well", said the tree, "An old stump is still good for that."
"Come, boy",she said, "Sit down, sit down and rest a while."
And so he did and
Oh, the tree was happy.
Oh, the tree was glad.
