. . . two, brief stories in one.
Earlier in the week, I found myself at a K of C meeting with Fr. Joseph Romanoski, Pastor of Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Lexington, SC. Father is originally from Manville, NJ, where I had worked as a young funeral director during the 1980’s. So whenever we are in each other’s company, there are always a few stories to share.
As you look at this photo, keep in mind that I am just short of 6-4 and 250 lbs. Father is a big guy with a bigger heart.
Next, you may recall from yesterday that the reward for completing my assigned chores was for us to go visit our granddaughter (along with her parents and dog) and to watch the USC Gamecocks embarrass themselves again on TV. (Where can I find a job that will pay me 19 million dollars if I get fired for doing a poor job?, alas, I digress)
Nine pounds of ginger granddaughter sure looks small compared to 250 of balding, old man.
As was once shared with me,
“Grandchildren are God’s reward for not murdering your children when they were teenagers”. *
- For the record, our three daughters never pushed us hard enough so murder seemed a reasonable option.
