A Family Visit

First an unusual occurrence  - I did not arrange these snippets   I think it looks like a sad Frenchman with a cigarette hanging from one corner of his mouth. I had to call my Hubby to see it.  Page down for the good stuff.

This is my Grandson the Tree. We are calling him the tree since he is only 18 and about 6'2" and still growing.  The shirt is about music, he said, but I know not of such things. Just that he is blood of my blood and a wonderful guy to behold. What a lovely legacy I have left.

Here is my Son - the Dad of the Tree - another wonder to behold. He is retired after 20+ years in the Air Force. Retiring as a First Shirt... a lovingly bestowed name for a Master Sgt. who has studied extra in order to help the guys  and girls in the lower ranks when they have troubles. He has lots of stories.

We took then to Fanny Anne's for lunch in downtown old town Sacramento. It's a fun place to visit and find souvenirs. I loved this little pink shirt, and my very excellent Grandson obliged me.(Not many 18 year olds would do that for their Grammies. He's a sweetheart.)
   You have to read this shirt. It says
Go Ahead
Push me around
But you ought
to know
I've got the Biggest,
Baddest, Meanest
in town
    Sacramento, CA
Look at my hand and my Son's - I wear a large man's size in gloves... wonder what size for him? It's like holding a bear paw.  I remember when his whole hand fit in mine and I could cover over with my fingers to encase it. Ahhhh, the good ole days.

Here I am with the Tree. Yes, I am standing tall and not in a hole.

The handsome Menfolk.

There is a picture on her marvelous camera of the whole group including the photographer, Mother of the Tree, but my camera didn't get a picture of her. (She is the bestest woman for my Son. He's wonderful, in his own way, and she knows how to handle that all. Love her, too. Safe journey, Family. Wish you all the best.
P.S. Grandpa loves those Big Foot shows where the witness tries to show how tall the furry person was .... here a comparison to the show. LOL  Hope to see you all again soon.


  1. That Frenchman is a riot! You have a wonderfully handsome family. Hugs, Julierose

  2. What a treat to see your family! Lovely son and grandson. My son is 6'3" so he must be from the same forest as your son! I do enjoy going shopping with TGS; he's easy to find when I lose him. Just look over the heads of everyone. It's wonderful when our sons marry a wonderful woman who is perfect for him.

  3. I love all of these pictures. Looks like the Tree didn't fall far from the Big Tree! Both handsome guys. I'm glad you had a chance to visit with them.Where do they live? Is your son retiring now, so off to begin a new phase in his life? Enjoy them while they are there!

  4. My brother was 6' 3" when he graduated high school. He stopped at 6' 6", in college. PS: my hands are large, too. It took my son's till high school before their hands were larger than mine (they are both about 6' now).

  5. Your grandson is a good sport!!! Hope your visit is wonderful!

  6. So tall. Wow. And what a beautiful family! I'm glad you posted pictures! Excellent picture of you, too. Looks like a good time was had by all. Thank you for sharing, Terri : )
