haha nana's post on ripped 20s was awesome so I thought I would post another story of our crazy misadventures in nana's volkswagon. We were driving home saturday morning with one of my cousins Alexis. We heard of this game where if you see a yellow car you hit the person next to you and announce loudly, BINGO! We were playing and nana got into it. Me and Alexis tied at 15 points and Nana had 13. Nana saw the next one first and said the usual: BINGO! *as she tapped my shoulder. Thank you very much.) then a silence. Nana looks at me and Alexis in turn as she says "Hey I have an idea." "What?" we reply in unison. "Lets drive around the parking lot and beat each-other up." we didn't. We did TRY to drop  alexis off. Of course, Alexis's dad wasn't home by the time we got there. *due to a wrong turn in all of the BINGO distraction* so we had to meet at the golden arches (aka mcdonalds)
long story short it took like two hours longer than planned.

love you nana We are coming home tomorrow so I'll call you! (and if you tried to call I left my charger at home O-o )

Ripped $20's

I should write this stuff down! Oh, I guess I am! Well, anyway I just want to thank the Lord for my grandkids! In a time when families are far apart and grandparents are living to "spend their kids inheritance" I appreciate the the fulness of life my kids and grandkids give me. They can be noisy, exhausting, and even frustrating sometimes, but when it's all said and done, it's time well spent.

I had three grandparents all the way through my childhood and my kids were able to know two of them. I learned from them and have snippets of memories that made me who I am. The small things we do with our kids and grandkids shape their lives, too. And that brings me to "ripped $20's"...

I gathered up my two oldest grandgirls one Saturday night for a trip to the drive-in movies. When we got to the gate I realized they weren't going to take debit cards and the only cash I had was a $20 bill I had accidentally ripped in half. I offered it up apologetically feeling somewhat like a loser, and the lady said, "I'm just glad you told me! Sometimes I don't realize it until I count it!". So, now we have a new joke between us. Next time when we're short on cash, we can always spend "ripped $20's"! Just another way that finding the fun and humor in things can lighten the load. Thanks, Lucy. I love you!

It's Nana!

This will be fun! Lucy is my oldest of nine GRANDkids. I learn alot from them. Like what music to listen to, good books to read, and they

keep me laughing.

One of our hobbies is "Toonology". It sharpens the wit. We watch alot of Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, etc. And, most importantly, the Marx Bros. This may seem trivial, but I've found it's important to have a good sense of humor. Life is serious but there is humor in most situations if you look for it.

So, I hope you enjoy our shared blog. Keep calm and carry on!
