My sister’s daughter is six months younger than Beanie. I have much to say about their relationship but Einstein’s Protege is begging to be on the computer.
(He just read “Einstein’s Protege” and shouted “The Theory of Relativity!”)
Anyway, my neice, Ren is called The Peanut because she bears a striking resemblance to Mr. Peanut: small head, sloping back, distended tummy and skinny little legs. Many times, Torey has had people say out of the blue, “She really does look like a peanut.”
Ren and Eden adore each other. Torey has been watching for good fares for them to come back at Christmas. The Peanut’s daily mantra has been,
“Oh-uh Kay. Let’s buy a ticket. I wanna go see Eden…Let’s do this thing!”

“Let’s do this thing!”
Sounds like a girl who knows what she wants out of life.
Hey guess what? Good chance I’ll be spending two weeks in Indiana next summer. Would definitely work in a trip to see you.
I know, I know, I’ve said similar things in the past, but this one will probably happen. Andy has been asked to be a guest instructor at a woodworking school there and has said yes, so they are now in process of working out dates and compensation and the like. The school will fly the whole family out, but the kids and I won’t have much to do. Want some company?
Um, do you like to swim and lay about reading?
We would like company.

Swimming and laying about reading sounds like my idea of what summer should be. I’ll let you know when we’ve landed on dates.
oh, by the way, did I mention what her other favorite phrase is lately?
and I quote, “It’s MY business and ‘It’s’ MY business.”
I wonder who taught her that????

Hi Alison, I’ve been catching up on your blog. I wanted to comment on your 3 for Thursday blog. That was touching. Thanks. Don’t let peanut swim in the ocean and become ‘salted’. thanks for the kind words on my blog.
