{oh little jimmy}

my sweet gma helen.

i love her.

she is ever calm, ever stalwart and a magnificently beautiful woman.

she has enough posterity to fill up a cultural hall on a saturday eating meat and cheese platters. i have mentioned her humor before, but i shall do it again as long as she comes up with this stuff...

my little bud "e" has her heart. i mean, he captivates her attention. whenever she is around him, she says:
"why, hello little jimmy"{for full effect please read with a proper aussie accent}

bud "e" looks up at her with questioning eyes and sits a minute and then says, i'm not zimmy, i'm bud "E"!

"why, you're not little jimmy? i could have sworn that was your name"

then, he gets what's going on and says, "no, that's not my name." and he giggles and giggles.

she tells us, now i love all the grand kids and great grand kids the same, the very same. but that little bud "e", oh, his little face. i mean look at his sweet little face.
