This AM as soon as the flower girls went up the road to catch the school bus. I dashed over to check for some mail from the girls for Gnomey. This is the largest package that the girls have sent.
One of two notes in the package was from Zinnia, who is in the first grade. This note says, "DEAR GNOMEY HERE IS ONE MY PENCIL. I KNOW THAT YOUR HANDS LITTLE COMPARED TO MY HANDS. LOVE ZINNIA AN DAHLIA.
This is the second note. It is worthy to note that Dahlia, who is a strong four years old, wants in on the fun too. She cannot write yet, but can dictate to her mom what she wants to say. This is also the first time I have seen Dahlias name written by her.
Retired male. Next birthday will be 78. Spend most of my time carving and quilting. Retired early (51) from a major university; so I am gettin this retirement thing down real good. I talked myself into wood carving. My daughter talked me into making quilts.
