These kids have no shortage of books in their library.
They make regular visits to our regional library and always have book bags full of books which are new to them each week.
it is fun to hear a story that has been around for sometime...
and especially if the characters in the book have the name of their Daddy.
Two books arrived in the mail in the early 80's.
Two books almost the same except for the name of the star character.
Back before computers made quick changes in script...
it seemed really amazing.
The books were kept carefully long after other books were boxed up and given away.
When our boys got married...
their books were packed up with their belongings and now are being read to their kids.
It was a gift from their great Uncle Lou.
The same Uncle Lou always made sure he had a few silver dollars in his pocket when he came to visit from Alberta.
We talked about this not long ago and it still made them smile that they could count on those silver dollars.
What about the star of the book?
His adventures continue today in real life.
He still thinks a plan is a good thing....
and we think he is pretty good at following through.
all for now...
