We have a shelf above our computers. That shelf holds some of my favorite things. I usually display a old photo there but recently I was given a photo of my niece’s children. The baby who was born a few weeks ago was nicknamed “seven” by my baby brother (Grandfather to these little ones).
See those little ones? They live in Oregon. The new babies name is really Xavier, he looks upset, big brother Cruz looks unconcerned and big sister Marley might have a puzzled look on her face. They are beautiful/handsome children. I display photos and cards with old flower frogs. My baby brother says the new babies name is pronounced X-zavier. I had to ask as I know there are about three ways the name is pronounced.
You may also see my decks of cards with our Grands and Chance, a Border Collie figurine, a wood acorn that was a possible Christmas Ornament but didn’t make the cut. My newest Little Golden Book is Doctor Dan The Bandage Man that has two bandages on the first page. It is a fun book to read! And those boxes, well they are full of “stuff.”
We may be seeing more of my baby brother, he bought four more acres and a lake home that ajoins his property on the north side of what is now being called “the compound.” (We live on the south side of the compound.) I hope he puts in a nice dock with a bench so we can go down there on warm summer evenings!
