My favorite rose

This morning I walked Dominic to school. Here was part of our conversation.

"Mom, I want to tell you what I think about people."

"Okay, tell me."

"I think that the older people get, the stronger, faster, and smarter they get."

"Wow, that's great! So when I get to be 105, I'll be even stronger, smarter, and faster than I am now?"

"No. When your hair gets silver and white and you get wrinkled, then you get slower."

"But I'll be stronger and smarter?"

"You can be smarter. But you will be weak. Your teeth will be weak. They will be weak as kittens. That's why grandpa eats oatmeal every morning. When you are old you have to have soft food."

Well folks, I don't know if the bloom is off the rose yet, but I'm still eating crunchy things and moving pretty quickly. I'm not so sure about my brains, though. I think my kids might be ahead of me on this one.

Kittens. Hmph!

Roses are my favorite!! But - not in NH - is that a Peace Rose?

Naomi said...

Okay Ashley, I'll check!

Colleen, I don't know what kind of roses those are! The rosebush was there when we bought the house. I think they might be Peace roses because everyone asks me if they are!

It's really lovely this year; it has more blooms than I've ever seen.

You're it! You've been tagged. Here are the guidelines:
Once you’ve been tagged, you have to write a blog with 10 weird, random, facts, habits or goals about yourself. At the end, choose 6 people to be tagged, list their names & why you tagged them. Don’t forget to leave them a comment saying “You’re it!” & to go read your blog. You cannot tag the person that tagged you, so since you’re not allowed to tag me back; let me know when you are done so I can go read YOUR weird, random, facts, habits and goals.

I typically don't do these, but this is fun. :)

So, I was going to tag you but - I'm too late. Oh well.

Naomi said...

I'm so late doing this meme that I won't be able to tag anyone!
