-When it comes to having a PICNIC… nothing like having some of your published books on hand… to hand out to those attending…to see what they like?
Nothing to do but to give to young Grandson LEX, a copy for his very own… as he wanted what everyone else was receiving a “Hot Off the Press” latest addition of the adventure of “AEROS” and to be signed to him from his Grandpa Al…himself!
and… So glad that some guests were watching and grab their cell phones and began to snap photos.
Just looking at this photo…it seems that little LEX has found something of high interest… as his looks indicate he is very interested in what he has found in the book of “AEROS”… as I look at this photo … I see a very young child highly interested in reading and learning… he holds the book so well that he can read and observe that which is of interest to him… and most importantly…his posture is so good… sitting up straight and book resting on tabletop securely… and with all of us so interested in what LEX is doing… Little LEX is not distracted by all of us!
and… The sound of many automobiles on the street suddenly attracted all of us to leave the back yard and go to the front of the house to see what was going on?
Seems that a parade of highly decorated vehicles decided to parade in celebration of one of the neighbors “65th” Birthday… since we can not celebrate with large get-to-gathers… due to “coronavirus” that is keeping all citizens homebound…so many cars had balloons flying all over… in seconds a few left their hands and headed to the sky so high above… seeing these balloons flying away, Little Lex wanted one, too.
and… We all went back to the patio and little LEX went back to the arms of his favorite of all the guests… up and into the arms of Uncle Alan… the one and only with nice strong arms to hold and rock little LEX… for long periods of time.
“Low and Behold” one of the guests evidently went over to where the “Birthday Party” was going on… to see if he could get a couple of Balloons for Little LEX.
“Coming through the backyard gate… everyone could see… two very nice gas-filled balloons… flying so nice and high… this way and that… and they were handed to Little LEX.” This was one of the best things that could have taken place… as this made this to be the happiest part of the day for little LEX.
Just to make sure that these balloons did not also fly into the high sky above… each Balloon had a long ribbon and on the end was a weight…heavy enough that LEX could hold … but if … he let go… the Balloon would stay here on Earth… where LEX set it.
Nothing like having a nice afternoon with family… and all had fun and good eats… with lots to remember … so that we will all get together soon again. D.V.
