    I  am  writing
    for   my
    Grandchildren ‘s
    Grandchildren.

   There are many words
   waiting to be read.

   Reading aloud for
   our Children is a
   moment seldom
   forgotten.

   Reading aloud for
   our Grandchildren
   completes our
   circle of reading.

   Read the eleven
   words above in a
   singing like way.

   The musical sounds
   will add to the fun
   of listening.

   Try singing other types
   of reading material.

   Our Children are not
   big time music critics.

   They will love every
   musical phrase that
   you can create.

   Choose a letter
   and write your own
   three line poem on
   a single sheet of
   paper.

   Have your child
   color it and show
   it to your parents.

   Complete the alphabet
   and put the pages in a
   scrapbook for their
   children to read.

   Write this story
   for your child.

   Change Penguin to
   another plant or
   animal and create
   your own story.

   Your own creative
   piece will become
   a special memory
   between you and
   your child forever.

   Build a collection
   of stories that you
   have written for
   your family.



We have one nose.
We have two eyes.
We have two ears.

All work together.
Checking for danger.

The nose can
smell danger
but it cannot
see danger.

The eyes can
see danger
but they cannot
hear danger.

The ears can
hear danger
but they cannot
smell danger.

They asked
a question.

Who is smartest?
Who is important?

The nose said,
I can smell danger,
because of that,
I am smartest.

The eyes said,
we can see danger,
because of that,
we are important.

The ears said,
we can hear danger,
because of that,
we are smartest
and important.

They kept saying
the same thing,
over and over
and over
red rover.

We are smartest.
We are important.

The more they
said it,
the louder
they got.

Everyone was
shouting.

WE ARE SMARTEST !!!
WE ARE IMPORTANT !!!

No one was checking
for danger.

The mind heard
all the yelling,
and went to see
what happened.

As the mind
looked around,
everyone became
silent.

The mind asked,
who is smartest,
who is important?

All raised their
hands, waving
them all about.

The mind said,
I see everybody’s
hands in the air,
everyone feels
smartest,
everyone feels
important.

You can feel it,
but do not say it.

Everyone needs to
remember these
important rules.

I help the others.
Others help me.

That is the way
we want it to be.

Helping each other,
working together.

The mind looked
all around
and said.

No more yelling.

I have work to do.
You have work to do.

We all have
work to do.

Now, let us get
get back to work
and check for danger.

All agreed.

We will help
each other.

We will work together.

We must remember,
how we want to be.

   Teaching success
   skills with stories,
   helps our children
   learn life lessons.

   

   Read Simplicity
   aloud, and
   use exaggerated
   facial expressions.

   Make a video of your
   child’s reaction and
   share it with your
   parents.

I have fond memories of
reading with my family.

Dad read the newspaper
and I would look at the
back page filled with
pictures.

Mom liked to read comic
books.

Her favorites were,
“Nancy and sluggo,”
“Henry” and “Scamp.”

I remember those rainy
days when my brothers
and sister would read
comics with Mom.

Memories that never
washed away.

I hope my ideas will encourage many to set aside time for reading as a family activity.

Creating a time for reading in the present, will prepare our children’s future, with a past filled with the fond memories of family reading time.

A time of happiness that will be passed onto the next generation..

Reading together will keep the invisible umbilical chord alive with the music of family.

after saying I do,
who on Earth knew.

we ‘ d make it last,
a 45 year blast.

a long term lease
for you and me.

sixteen thousand days
in many exciting ways.

not much went wrong,
you and I still belong.

we traveled and went
never getting too bent.

barrels of fine wine,
blending in our time.

It was never ever a bore.
Let ‘s do many many more.

” Really ? ? ? , ”
she asked

” Really ! ! ! , “
I replied

“ Check with me
after the cruise, ”
she said.

* * * Our 45th
anniversary cruise
taken in 2 0 1 7
went great.

We never got lost
and never went hungry.

There were times
that I blew it.

I don’t remember
the anniversary number
of the following story.

Let me explain.

At a mystery dinner
show, a hostess came
to our table and asked,
“Are there any special
occasions being
celebrated tonight?”

Not thinking I shook
my head and said,
“Nope ~ ~ ~,
Not Here.”

Before I knew it, a
pair of eyes riding on
speeding arrows came
flying at me.

With that special look,
she firmly stated,
“Tonight is our
Anniversary ? ? ? ”

oops, oops and
ahh bigger
OOOPS

The lady sitting next
to her said,
“Don’t feel
bad honey.”

“I heard my husband on the
phone telling one of his
golf buddies;

“I would rather play
golf with you guys, but
today is our anniversary,
and I HAVE to spend
the day with my wife.”

“He is now my X.”

==========
We had a quiet
ride, all the
way home.

My only
thought was;
O O O P S
