- The BIG Bet -



                                               I made a bet
                                           with my youngest
                                           grandchild Adrian
                                              No big money
                                       We bet for a penny each
                                   The result was that Adrian lost
                                        Huge loss for a little boy
                                        He tried to blow it away
                               His brother reminded him of the penny
                                      A thoughtful answer came:
                              "Grandma does not care about money"
                             ... "She can rather get four good huggs"






                                                  - True story

    Hi Anne-LIse, children can come out with some pearls and this Is one. I think you would most rather have the hugs. I did enjoy this one. Sometimes we should actually look to the pearls that come forth from the children, they have such a Loving and straight forward view of the world. The question now Is, "Did you get those hugs." A Happy Easter to you and yours Anne-Lise. Have a good weekend. Caych you later. Your Friend always....MIKE. XX
