Out and About


Pondering the eternal question, "What's for dinner?"

The Missus Herself has already decided to have one of the specials listed on the chalkboard so has no need of a menu. For the kids, their mom, The WSO, will help them decide. Little Bit went with the kid's cheeseburger with fries, whereas L'il Sweetie selected the mac and cheese. (Which she devoured with great relish.)


While the food was being prepared...

So was I. Guinness for me, thank you very much.


The fish and chips sounded like a good idea.

And it was!


I assisted the artist, who found great pleasure in "dropping" the crayons and making Grandpa pick them up again. (Well, okay sometimes she tossed the crayons. But fortunately, there was no hurling involved.)

Sigh...

They head home on Saturday, the place is going to be sadly quiet after they leave.


Not that the cats won't mind...


Yeah, that's what a thousand-yard stare looks like on a cat.

    3. I used to have similar issues with my phone, so I turned auto-correct off.

      Can you even do that on an iPad?

  2. Glad there was no hurling involved. Nothing breaks up a meal like hurling. And Little Bit is going
    to be a heartbreaker when when she gets older. Beauty definitely runs in the family!!

    1. Mother's side, they get their sense of humor from my side.

      While I ain't zactly ugly, no one has ever accused me of being "handsome."

  4. Wow, those smiles and antics sure brighten a snowy February day in Nebraska! Thanks for sharing and give 'em a kiss for me. The welcome mat is always out if they ever want to visit a ranch!

  6. Looks like The Missus Herself is asking our Higher Power for the youngn's to not order a rice dish. If you've been there, you know what I mean. Dropping most anything on the floor is a great entertainment for them. Beautiful grandkids!

    1. We eat a lot of rice at home. This week there has been rice "overboard." Too bad the cats don't care for it...

  8. Thanks for sharing your family with us.

    As for "Too bad the cats don't care for it...", I've never had a cat who would eat anything off the floor which the cat didn't chase and catch.

    3. My Dad wad in the occupation force in Berlin. At 17, quite an experience!

    4. I should think so. Did he ever go back to see what it looked like as a city, rather than a pile of rubble?

      Li'l Bit looks like her own woman, even at her age.

    5. He never got back there. (And he "was" in the occupation force, vice "wad").

      Little Bit's other nickname is "Miss Independent."

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
