He's gone!

How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.  Winnie the Pooh


 Nothing beats the midwinter blues like a visit from a little grandson.  Works like magic every time.  Once welcoming hugs from the doting grandmother are out of the way, the little man jumps on the phone to ring his farmer uncle to announce he is here.  


What to do when the uncle has visitors and can't take him farming immediately?  He readies himself for farm duties and finds a spot from which he can see when the visitor leaves.  And doesn't leave that post until he sees the strange car is gone.  
 

He sure loves being busy and when it's not possible to be out and about with Uncle Danny he's just as happy to be busy inside, under the watchful eye of cousin, Georgia.
 

He even does the dishes!  No wonder I miss him so much after he's gone.


After a week his farm overalls reflect the fun he's had.  And the grin couldn't be bigger.

  1. Oh my goodness...what precious [and priceless] memories for you all! What a wonderful, beautiful reflection of your time together! I love each and every photo you shared with us.

    I have TWO grandsons, but they're both in their 20s now, in age. Your grandson is the perfect age....tender, loving, curious, energetic and more!!!

    1. My other grandson is in his 20s, too, Anni. It was a long wait for this one! It's worth the wait, though.

  5. I remember clothes like that. I was told they weren't too large they were to allow for growing room.

    1. The size didn't worry him, Adrian. He thought they were special because they had been his cousin's.

  6. You're fortunate to have such a charming visitor. By the looks of him he had a good time and granny just had to have the combinations for him to wear.

  7. What a sweetie! There is nothing like the mixed feelings a grandmother has when a little one is so distraught on leaving. On the one hand 'oh dear, it's terrible to see him so unhappy'....and then on the other hand I find myself smiling a little as I remember his Dad when he'd have to leave HIS grandmother's place. The circle keeps turning.

    1. Yes, I agree, it's wonderful to have real life reminders of our own children.

  8. Your grand children are beautiful. Love the hug shot. I bet you both had fun but I reckon you would have been more tired when it was all over. I like the Winnie the Pooh quote.
