> After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old

grew thin.
> At last she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room,

> putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room,

THAT?"

> A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own
> childhood was like: "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing

> made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our
> pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was
> wide-eyed, taking this in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten
> to know you sooner!"
>
> My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know
> how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halos while I
> asked, "No, how are we alike?" "You're both old," he replied.
>
> A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word
> processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?" he

> asked. "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."
>
> A Sunday school class was studying the Ten Commandments. They were
> ready to discuss the last one. The teacher asked if anyone could tell
> her what it was. Susie raised her hand, stood tall, and quoted, "Thou
> shall not take the covers off thy neighbor's wife."
>
> Our five-year-old grandson couldn't wait to tell his grandfather about

> the movie we had watched on television, "20,000 Leagues Under the
Sea."
> The scenes with the submarine and the giant octopus had kept him
> wide-eyed. In the middle of the telling, my husband interrupted Mark,
> "What caused the submarine to sink?" With a look of incredulity Mark
> replied, "Grandpa, it was the 20,000 leaks!!"

> When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the
> lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects.
> Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did,
> Billy whispered, "It's no use, Grandpa. The mosquitoes are coming
> after us with flashlights."

> A nursery school teacher was delivering a station wagon full of kids

youngster.
> "No", said another, "he's just for good luck." A third child brought

I wasn't blessed with children, but I think these are very cute. I love children. One of them reminded me of a story. When I was 38 I dated a man in his 40s who had gone through a divorce a few years earlier. He had 2 young children. (very sad situation) Anyway... first you need you need to know that I'm platinum blonde.    So the little girl, who hoped he and her mother would get back together, figured I was in the way and was thinking of something that would turn off her Dad. She whispered "Nancy's hair is so white, Daddy. She must be very, very old!"
