It's the great pumpkin Charlie

Last Saturday I joined these and other poets in the park to read at Manchester Arts Fest. The day was cool and breezy, and the poetry was as diverse as the readers. An enjoyable event that included music, a variety of arts, and campfire story telling. 






Wednesday, I spent the day with this cute little two month old doll boy. Charlie is such a jabberer. I wish I could say he was this sweet the entire day, but ...


he wailed when I laid him down to take his picture.
After I picked him up and showed him around the pumpkin patch, he calmed down.

Once he realized he was the star of the day, he chilled and enjoyed himself.

 I am so in love with this little guy and his brothers. Alex is walking, Liam is always running, and I am enjoying my retirement.

How about you? What have you been up to?

Looks like a pretty day for the poetry reading, and also for the pumpkin patch. Your poem reminds me of our old dog Grizzly, who we got from the pound as a pup, the spring that Genius was 3. They grew up together. Grizzly waited until we left for school one morning, and laid down in the sun to sleep forever, at the age of 11.

Charlie is indeed a cutie, even when he's not happy. Those boys are gonna keep their momma hoppin'! And you, too!

Oh Linda, those are darling photos of that beautiful little sweet pea of a baby. I LOVE the one of him crying near the pumpkin. That one is priceless. Linda, I have been out of commission for the past week. My computer was infected with Malware and it was inoperable. Now, little by little smidgens, I am getting back in operation. Holy smokes, I really, REALLY missed blogging. (And writing emails. And posting photos. And on and on and on). I just pray that wretchedness won't happen again. Susan

Those three boys are lucky to have you as a GG. You're making memories with them every week.
