He’s Got My Priorities Right

During a visit by our son Ben and grandson Thomas this afternoon the four-year old asked My Beloved , “You’re a real teacher, right Mama?”

She replied, “Yes, and so were your Mama and Papa Okano before they retired. Do you know what your Papa Towne does?”

Thomas nodded his head, smiled, and said, “He hangs around with me!”

With Love,
