To watch him sleeping, is like catching a glimpse of creation.
It is pure perfection.
My friend Morgan came by to help me with the ever increasing pile of bills that get tossed into the dark recesses of the file cabinet and come back out to glare at me in the middle of the night.
Morgan graduated with Caleb and she was one of the many people who pulled together a very successful fund-raising event this past summer. As I said---these young women just knock me out.
On graduation day Morgan gave Caleb this Dr. Seuss wild looking stuffed creature that had a motion sensor in it. The sound when lightly touched was a fairly loud boing - oing oing oing. Caleb kept the animal for a few days and then gutted it to get to the "boinger" as we called it, knowing that it would be far more useful to him outside rather than in.
I was walking with him one summers day down the busy street of Fleet when a pretty girl approached. When she was almost at Caleb's side , he lightly touched the pocket in his jeans and the boinger went off with Caleb glancing innocently at the girl with that "s--t" eating grin of his face...... She turned bright red with laughter as did we. That is Caleb in a nut shell. He lives to make people laugh.
He is beginning to get that sence of humor back again and can crack up at our jokes- he is silently holding his back for awhile.....just awhile.
All of you were correct---spring is in the air... my flyers went out for my landscaping business which Kai will run this year, the birds are actively searching for nesting materials, the daffodil's little heads are crowning, my fish are thawing in the pond and are swimming about.
Life feels better at a warmer temperature.
As I mentioned..one of Caleb's goals is to walk in the parade this 4th. There will be the usual Yellowbeard accomanied by red beard and grey beard flanking his sides. I am considering a big pot luck on the 6th at the Lindsay/Potter residence so that perhaps some of the cyber family can meet their Fleetian family. ---can anyone make it at that time?
We promise to break out the boinger!
