Sons Jack Jr and Mark are here for Thanksgiving. Life is strange (funny), the boys were a thrill a minute watching them grow and learn into the school years. It was a wonderful life watching them play ball, going to their games. Thrills and scares as they raced moto-cross. Disappointment when they both quit school (like their dad), both with top grades.
Thrills when they are successful. Happy when they marry and grands are born. Thrill upon thrill seeing the grands learn and love.
Disappointment at divorces and heart breaks at not seeing or communicating with two of the grandsons for three years.
Thrills when a great granddaughter is born, then Twin grandsons, more thrills.
BIG Thrill when the two missing grandsons fly to NC for the summer, 3 yrs after disappearing.
We have always had a close relationship with the boys. But it hasn't always BEEN FUN. Now that they have pretty well grown up, LOL, (Sherry's baby Mark is 55) we look forward to being close and visiting. They are a pleasure to be around. They are Redskins fans, and the Skins have a game tonight. It is fun watching them watch the game.
Janie praying the Redskins win.
The boys are like the guys from the 'Odd Couple' TV series. Mark is the 'messy dude' and Jack Jr is the neat one. They pick at each other and it is actually fun to watch and hear now. Both boys are opinionated, oddly though, they both were sure Trump was going to win the election.
Janie has decided she doesn't care who wins.
Jack Jr. is the techy type, Mark despises computers but both love their smart phones.
Both boys (men) have been successful in their own rite. They will be here on and off until after Thanksgiving. And yep, the house is in top shape; but they and the dog, Janie, are here in the coach with us.
We may try to use the house some of the week for meals, we will see.
Shirl called chiding the guys for leaving her in the parking lot with her suitcase packed. They enjoy kidding with their aunt Shirl.
