"I Am An Arab"

The kids on my bus range from kindergartners to 5th graders. I love them all,but I do have to scold them once in while. But even after that, they soon forget and become chatty again.

One boy, a boy with coal black hair and olive skin complexion moved up behind me and was talking. The noise on a school bus, can be impressive and Imust have said something that triggered the boy to announce that "I am an Arab". "That's nice", I said, "what country are you from; Egypt, Pakistan, Arabia?" He replied, "no I'm from this country." "OK". I said, "then your family is from one of those countries?" The boy said, "no, but they were married in Quatar." The girl next to him then asked, "I thought you said they were married in Troy?"

Well, I thought it was funny.

Lee called a little while ago to invite me to coffee. We went to Denny's for coffe and some apple pie. The waitress was a pleasnt young woman with a lot of travel under her belt. From S. Dakota via Alaska and Germany. Very easy conversationalist.

I am reading a book I bought at a furniture store in West County (Valley Park). The store rambles through four buildings and on two levels. All the furniture displays were arranged with dozens of books of various vintage and condition, all for one dollar. I noticed a hardbound book, The Caine Mutiny, and bought it. I always liked the movie starring Humphrey Bogart, snd having nothing to read at home, I bought it and am appreciating how closedly the movie followed the book.

Well that is about it from Home Alone,

Love to all, Dad



That is funny. Kids are so cute.

Still shopping for that side table?

Jim and I are thinking of suprising the kids with a trip to Disneyland this Sat. I'll let you know what we decide. Hopefully my back will loosen up by then. It's still tight. It is frustrating not being able to do the chores and get stuff packed for moving.
