Life's Tragedy is that we get old to soon and wise too late. Benjamin Franklin Sunday was an all day celebration around here. Two parties with a break for a nap in between. I also got to watch the US Open golf tournament all day. I'm probably the only fan in America that openly roots against Tiger Woods, so I was happy to see him back in the pack for once. Not to say he might not still win when they finish tomorrow. Don't get me wrong, Tiger is the greatest golfer of my lifetime, but it keeps things interesting when someone else wins once in awhile. Aiden was engrossed in a Travelers Insurance commercial, during a break from golf . Miss Riley learned to stand up and cheer for her old grandpa. Okay, I inferred the cheering part. Noah came prepared with his own balloon. Did you know that Merle Wayne Sneed dislikes balloons? Noah and his folks leave Wednesday for a two plus week motor home trip. I will miss the little guy. Merle Wayne Sneed is a lucky guy. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

This one is to disprove Benjamin Franklin's "She laughs at everything you say. Why? Because she has fine teeth."

Miss Riley just laughs at everything you say cuz she likes you. Lucky guy, indeed.

Enjoy them while they're around, Merle.

I thought I was the only one who disliked balloons! Wow, love being on your wavelength, Merle.

Riley is definitely cheering for you!

Ben Franklin was a Very Smart Man.

I sat next to a kid in the movies the other day. That was enough for this calendar year.

I get tired of rooting for Tiger, too.

Glad you got some nap time!

Steve said...

Hmmmm...why do you dislike balloons? Is it because they might pop at any minute? Is there some anxiety there about the balloons' inevitable end?

You are a lucky guy, Merle. :)

Maybe you can talk Noah into bringing you back a souvenir of his trip.

I still don't understand why anyone would hate a balloon!?

The commercial looks like its a take on Rene Margritte.

She's such a cutie!
