Thirty-one years ago tomorrow my first nephew, Josh was born. I was so excited to be an Aunt for the very first time. He still calls me Auntie and freely gives hugs, he lives next door.
â€œShe who sees robins firstâ€ and Josh
It was â€œshe who sees robinsâ€ birthday yesterday..I wonâ€™t divulge how old she is..but she was nineteen when she birthed Josh.Â I took this photo earlier in the month at an open house at Station Number Two..Josh was walking around talking to little kids..showing them what a fireman looks and sounds like in an self-contained breathing apparatus. He did scare a few children.Â Small children have been known to hide from firemen during a fire, because they were afraid..and firemen look and sound scary.
I snagged this photo of Mason( Josh’s son) that day too..it was one day after he turned six.Â He invited us to his birthday party.Â I asked him what he would like for a gift..truly a gentleman he replied â€œI will like what ever you pick out.â€Â I asked again and he replied â€œA Transformers Movieâ€ ..well ok what if I cannot find it what other movies would he like..Horses..no..Dogs ..yes. We found a Transformers Movie and just for good measure Where The Red Fern Grows one of my favorites.Â The best present he got at his party was a giant gallon jar of pickles..he was just thrilled! He kept all of his requests straight and never asked for the same gift twice..impressive for a six year old. He got some water guns that Far Guy and I were both coveting..super blastersâ€¦we were both thinking what a fun thing to use with Chance!
I am not sure if I reminded you to change the batteries in your smoke alarm when we went to daylight saving time.Â If you didnâ€™t replace them..put it on your list of things to do.Â I made Far Guy do it..he would like to eek out every little bit of juice from a battery and wait for the smoke alarm to start going beep-beep..not me..replace them:)
