Things I've Been Seeing

Once upon a time I had four children–three boys and a girl. I turned my head, looked back around…and they were gone.

In a few weeks, my youngest will be 40. Today in our back yard, his children played with this truck that in a time long gone was his toy, his world.

    Wow – what a huge slap of reality you’ve just given me. I still think of Andrew as a young kid.

    Guess that makes me… ancient!

    Thanks a lot.

    I so remember that year–he was born on my birthday June 6th, a week after we had moved a long ways away!
    Also I was almost ancient then–so guess what?
    Sure looks like a “Tonka Toy” to me!
    Our boys had them, then grandson, still have one left (never opened,) somewhere, just maybe, another grandson may come along!!
