The Fine Print

Father Bob was very clever.
Until I did this comic, I had forgotten he always said "hello" in a sing-song manner, and that I vowed to myself to say it like that as a default. Which I have done for many years, though I don't think it captures the same joy he had.

Better to beg forgiveness...

I let him borrow it anyway.
(In case you are wondering I am referred to as Magoo, Goo, and, as of late, Bagoo by my nephews and nieces)

We went shopping the last couple times I came over for a visit, so I guess it's part of the routine now.

Brayden and the Hiccups

My moms go to tactic to get rid of the hiccups was to scare them out. It hardly ever worked.

Before my siblings started having kids of their own, there was another group of important kids in our lives. My mom, for a while, babysat a small group of kids in the neighbourhood. Brayden was the first kid to start coming to our house on a daily basis. And he started the nickname "Mama-Kay" and "Papa-Kay" for my mom and dad, since he couldn't quite say Mrs. McKay when we first started watching him. The rest of the kids my mom babysat, called them that too.

"I'll sound the alert!"

It was hard to sneak past Olie. Plus the closer you got to her, the harder she wagged her tail.
