Times Past...

Here's Pa sitting by the lake... visited him last night to celebrate his birthday...he tried to eat the flaming candle...though I did get it blown out before he got burned... funny things that the mind does to us as we age... he's 89 now...

  3. your Pa looks eternal and earthy sitting by the water.

    After I read that you kept him from burning, the idea of him eating fire made me grin. It reminded me of the time when my grandma said "Why do people put all that nonsense on cake if they are not going to eat it?" After this she invited me to eat all the flowers on someone's (can't remember who) wedding cake. We had belly aches for two days, but it was fun...

  4. I have been so busy this week that I haven't been reading blogs, but I saw this post in my feed & made a mental note to some back & see it... It just spoke to me somehow.

    How wonderful. Your description too, there's something about what *isn't* said that makes me think. Such a nice thing to share.
