A Note for My Grandfather

I'm finally getting a chance to post something.  I'm sure you're all sick of hearing about my arm (as much as I'm sick of talking about it), but picture taking is just still so difficult.  Pictures happen when I really have the energy, so I finally have something to show.

Clear Dollar Stamps has this really great set, that I was so thankful that they came out with called For Our Men.  I know that Father's Day is over, but this set is perfect for whenever.  My Grandfather is 88 years old and his health is failing, so I try to send him cards as much as possible.  He lives in Nebraska and I live here in Georgia, so I obviously don't get up there much.  That makes me sad, but cards are a good way for me to connect with him.  I can't just send him an email, so I'll send him a card and a picture of the kids.

A fun side story is that I was always a dramatic child. . .go figure.  When I was 3 or 4 and would get upset with my parents, I would tell them that I wanted to go and 'live with my grandfather, because my grandfather loves me', lol.  How hilarious is that?!
