Keith's grandfather, Richard, was
quite a character.
He was ornery as the day is long.
He was always singing some crazy,
He had duct tape & spray paint
on his car.
He piped Christmas music
outside his house during the
He loved to joke around
with his grand kids
and more than anything....
he loved his wife Edna
he loved to give Edna
a hard time!
Keith recalls one time in particular when
Edna had asked Richard to vacuum the
living room carpet.
From upstairs she could hear the vacuum
running and thought
Richard was really working hard.....
that is, until she came downstairs
and found him sitting back
relaxing while the vacuum
sat unmoving in the middle of
the living room floor!
Well.....I think our youngest
child has a bit of Richard in her.
She is just as ornery as the day is long.
She loves to play little jokes
But tonight......tonight was the clincher!
I took Darci in to the bathroom,
put toothpaste on her battery operated
mermaid toothbrush and told her to brush.
I stepped out of the room for a minute.
I could hear the toothbrush humming away.
Do you see where I am going with this??
Yep...that's right....when I returned
I found the toothbrush sitting in the sink.....
while the little stinker was happily
playing with hair thingys.
Yes, folks, a part of Richard lives on!
