The View below Five Feet

This morning my oldest, Sophie, and I were looking at a picture of Pope Benedict XVI during his visit to Poland. She asked how old he was. I said that he had recently turned 79. Sophie, in her inimitable way, said, "Dang! He's almost dead!"

May it not be so. Long live B16!

I don't care who you are. That's funny right there.

But I'm with you...may it not be so.

Kids know how to cut through the bull. If someone looks old or fat, etc..., a kid will just say so.

I love kids. And I wish I had been copying some of the stories I read on blogs for the past 3 years.

My father in law is almost 91, and still lives by himself and travels anywhere he wants to - car or plane!

Children are the best. No wonder Jesus said we must be like them.
