Larry finished another puzzle and I helped a little, but I had a book to read--Duty. Jonell sent it to me. The book is about Paul Tibbets who dropped "Big Boy" and Bob Greene's Dad. Both served in World War II. I enjoyed reading it. Tibbets like Harry Truman never regretted flying the Enola Gay. He was leader of that group. He flew the first flight. He would not ask one of his men to do what he would not.
You can see one piece is missing. I will look under our chairs, but if I don't find it Pop will just make a new piece for the puzzle. Two more of these to put together.
Greta likes to pick what she wears each day. Sometimes. what she picks may not match. She likes layers. She may wear two shirts, pants and over all this a dress. Yesterday, Greg made her take part of the garb off! She does not give up easily and Erin texted me that she was sending her to live with us. Well, I am old, and if Greta came I can assure you Gigi would just let her wear what she picked. I might make a suggestion, but probably would not lock horns over her apparel. This is why old folks do not have children. They are not too good at disciplining. But children learn with little rules and little commands so one day they can exist in society. Trust and obey--there is no other way. Children learn to trust and obey their parents. Little rules and later bigger ones. Some children I am sure don't only want to disobey, they can not "trust" their parents! Wow! What insecurity that brings. No one to trust. No one to obey! The Bible says "train them up...." Fleta said that is part of the problem today even young parents are not training their children. They are coming up like weeds in the garden. I am proud of Greg for establishing rules for his children. Eric, also. Yesterday, I think he wanted Sig to have to stay at my house all afternoon. I took her to her house and "self" freedom. I am not raising my 5 grands. Just watching and helping when asked. I think often of my Sister Fleta. I am glad I do not have her task. Lots of Grandparents do. We are too lenient for the job. I applaud Greg!
