Reading to your grandchildren is good. Telling the story, with sound effects, is better.

I kept those little pigs alive to stall the beasty, pursed to huff, while piglets fled and still survive. They live immortal and contrive the hungry masher to rebuff. I kept those little pigs alive. Their only goal was to deprive, escaping sometimes in the buff, the piglets fled and still survive. My story told again to five, while kiddies shivered at the chuff, I kept those little pigs alive. In rapt attention they arrive to hear the tale, told off the cuff of pigs who ran and still survive. My sound effects resembled jive as kids' excitement gathered fluff; I kept those little pigs alive, the ones who fled and still survive.

It is a wonderful parent or grandparent, in my opinion, who entertains while telling their stories. Sometimes my 3 yr. old Granddaughter says, you're being silly, and I tell her, then I am doing my job right! Would you rather I be serious like, and she says nooooo! We have fun. Your poem is well written and delightful Cona. #7 Cheers, Connie

Thank you, Connie. Our youngest grandchild is now 16, so I'm in the waiting mode for great grandchildren. I like your answer to your Granddaughter, and have stored it in my memory bank for future use. A visit from you is always a delight. Your generous comments are much appreciated.

And may God bless you as well, Dorian. Good to hear from you. I have been "out of circulation" for some time, as I am busy writing a book, but I hop into the soup pot often to read. Thanks so much for stopping by, and for your generous comment. Our grandchildren did love to hear me tell that story.
