Prime - Pure Delight

small face scrunched
in concentration
little fingers working hard
"Look Mommy, I've tied my shoes all by myself!"

Inspired by Nigel Fawcetts PRIME-ary School contest

    A big step in development, right? These days velcro steals the thunder, but I still remember the process of learning to tie my own shoes. Congratulations on your win in Nigel's PRIME-ary contest. Warm regards, John.

    And for terroristic threathening. Don't even ask me how he ended up getting stabbed, I couldn't figure it out myself and didn't take time today to ask any questions. People have been calling all day but I haven't had time to answer to see what did happen during the stabbing. Tomorrow maybe. Also the dude just got out of prison just 4 months ago and just lives two streets over. I'm glad my maintenance man wasn't here. He's mean, but he's considerate. I've known him since he was 12. L in Lou. Ky.

    So now I have a court order so the dude can't even come within 200 feet of these 2 Mobile Home Parks, plus we'll find out tomorrow at 2:30 if the Grand Jury is going to allow another tenant here to take the same dude to trial for splitting his head wide open with a large metal antique knife sharpener. We met with the Grand on the 24th at 1:30 pm. Everyone here is fine on that stabbing deal. The dude threatening people with the knife ended up getting stabbed in the back. He's in jail for burglary

    Keep up the great writing. I can remember being in the same situation as a child. Yea, you wouldn't believe some of the things that happen around here. Last year we had one dude keep coming through here pulling a gun out and pointing it at several people, and around little children. He even pulled it on my maintenance man Mikie, and Mikie slapped him so hard he ran. I have the gun now. Then the same dude came back and pulled a knife on me, so I popped him up side his lid with a big rock. POW!

    Lol. It took me awhile, and by the end of the day I had them tied in knots. I love this one, it tickled me. lol Lady you sure are great with your words. I don't really like this job here at this TP, and I don't really need this job, I've been wanting to sing that one song to the owner: Take This Job and Shove It, but this place was getting ready to get closed down and a lot of people would have been without a place to live, so I got a good maintenance man and brought it back from the bottom.

    This makes me remember my 4 when they learned to tie their shoes and the pride they so well wore on their faces. A lovely memory and a lovely read. Michael

    I think it's great to remember these special times in a childs life. learning, living, and loving!

    Dear Robin, I think we all remember this event in our lives and you describe it so masterfully! Thanks for being the first to read "She-Devil Expelled." You wouldn't believe the crimes, true crimes, this awful woman committed to try to bilk her now ex-husband. It took nearly three years to get the divorce because she ran from the police. They were together only 6 months. I appreciate your friendship! Carolyn
