A couple of days ago I was talking about what would have been our 40th wedding anniversary. That evening Cliff and I went to our favorite Chinese restaurant (that’s Chef Chu’s, Alison), and imagine my surprise when I saw a number of waiters wearing aprons that said “40th Anniversary”.

You don’t suppose they knew, do you?

Fun -

From papers written by 8 year olds

They can take their teeth and gums out.

Grandparents don't have to be smart.

They have to answer questions like "why isn't God married?" and "How come dogs chase cats?".

When they read to us, they don't skip. They don't mind if we ask for the same story over again.

Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don't have television because they are the only grown ups who like to spend time with us.

They know we should have snack-time before bedtime and they say prayers with us every time and kiss us even when we've acted bad.

A six-year old was asked where his grandma lived. “Oh,” he said “she lives at the airport and when we want her we just go get her. Then when we’re done having her visit we take her back to the airport.”


  1. When we were out here househunting, the real estate agent we spent a week with took us the first day to Chef Chu's as an example of local cuisine and for a good lunch. I've never forgotten it. After four years in the New Hampshire restaurant wilderness!

  2. I googled Chef Chu's. Mmmmm yummy Chinese food.
    What a coincidence the 40 is!
