I was riding to the optometrist with Gordon this afternoon and he asked, "Does anyone call you Grandma?"

I said, "Right now people only call me Mom.  When you have kids they will call me Grandma."

Gordon replied, "I was thinking about living single."

"Why do you want to live single", I asked.

"I just don't want to live with girls." Gordon replied.  "I could live with a girl, I would just rather live single."

Old Fashioned

We went on a walk with the kids yesterday.  Everything was so pretty and green, a result of all the rain, I suppose.  As we were walking, we walked past a plant that had died and was grey.  Ellis pointed it out and said, "It's an old fashioned thistle! You want to know how I know it is old fashioned?"  I told him I did. He said, "Because it is black and white."
