My grandson looks just like me, except I have a beard.
We took the Grands to the Park this morning, and they had a great time playing at the playground, running around playing with other kids, and looking at all the geese that inhabit the Park in the summer. And besides doing a load of laundry that was my accomplishment for the day.
Even though it may sound like I didn't do very much, that was still a lot more than I usually get done. Because of my inherent laziness, and my terminal lack of ambition, doing anything during the day more than just getting out of bed in the morning is considered a busy, and eventful day for me.
I don't think I was born with these afflictions because my mom and dad were both hard-working people, which is what poor folks have to be if they want to support their family.
But I can remember at a very young age in elementary school, my teacher wrote a comment on my report card that said, "Tommy had rather daydream than do his work". I have to admit teachers back in the day were blunt and to the point, unlike today's teachers who make every kid sound like a Goldstar student and would tell the parents little Tommy is an excellent daydreamer. But even then the teachers had me pegged and knew that I wouldn't be going anyplace as a daydreamer and insisted in vain that I become a hard worker.
They were right of course because I might've become President if I wasn't so lazy, or possibly made General in the Air Force instead of just a Sergeant if I'd had any ambition.
But I got the last laugh because I ended up becoming the best thing you can be in America or maybe the world. I worked my way up to be a full-time RVer, a lazy, unambitious RVer, but an RVer nonetheless.
When your legs are too short to reach the swing you have to make accommodations.
You work up a powerful thirst when you're playing hard.
This picture reminded me of an old joke about how to raise a kid, and the joke goes....You build a big wooden box and cut a small hole in it, then you put the kid in it and nail the lid shut. and when the kid becomes a teenager you cover up the hole.
