Bunny Scouts

I love the wonderful days when I get to talk to all of my children and see all the grandkids, at least via face-time. It makes for a grand feeling. It also brings back a lot of memories of days gone by. Man oh man, time is clicking right along.
I decided an I-pad is not a bad thing to travel with when you have children. My three kids used to sit in the backseat and squabble. It got so bad one time, I stopped and made them walk for a half mile. You have to know that we lived in the middle of no-where and were thirty miles from the closest town when I did this. They got back in the car much quieter, but now-a-days, I would probably be charged with a felony count of abuse. Like I said, an I-pad is not a bad idea when you’re traveling with kids.
There is an uninvited twinge in my back right now. I’m going to take some pain reliever and go lie down. I moved my couches for the fifth time since moving in, but not before bringing up a recliner from the basement – with the help of my daughter. It would probably have been a hilarious sight to watch. There was so much grunting and groaning going on, you’d have thought a herd of thirsty water buffalo had just come upon an unexpected watering hole. At any rate, I think we finally have an arrangement that allows for maximum visibility for the entire family – just in case we can all coordinate a holiday get-together someday. Easier said than done, getting the entire family together at once is even harder than moving furniture up and down stairs.
We were outside last night and a bunny came hopping into the yard. My granddaughter got within eight feet of him before his twitchy nose got the best of him and he scampered away. She thinks the Easter bunny sent scouts to the neighborhood. Works for me.
