Reinventing the Magic Wheel

Believe it or not, this is my 95th blog and I was sure I wouldn’t  be writing it today or even have one today. We’ve been busy in the shop, our web is undergoing an overhaul and  some of you may or may not know this, but I am also a document examiner and had to make a report for a rush case that had to be ready to hand into court and I’m out of the office on Thursday and Friday this week because I am a Grandmother Judge at the International Startup Festival  here in Montreal at the Old Port which takes place on those days. Then I have Phil on my back to get the banners and newsletter ready because I’m the one who puts them together.

But the important things comes first. It was my grandchildren’s soccer practice  last night between 6 and 8:00 pm. Of course they want us to be there. So I’m sitting on a pad on the grass watching my four year old grand daughter in her practice sessions when my six year old grandson sits down beside me and says in a quiet voice, “You know Bubby, when  I was at camp today I was reading a book on magic and it said you could make this thing that fits on your thumb and then you take a silk hanky and …….He described it so perfectly. I told him the name of it and he asked if I could possibly get him one. So we checked out his thumb and came to the conclusion that he might just have to wait awhile,  but perhaps we could find something that would work. I tell Phil the story, and what does he get out of it? “He can read?”

Anyhow, I thought it was so sweet how he shares these “magic moments” with me that I thought I would like to share them with you.

    YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!! A lot of my best memories from my childhood are with my grandparent. All you do now will have an impact on them. You love them and it shows. Bravo to you and Phil!
