Conner and Grandpa
(Being a grandpa freaks me out and I eat too many cookies)
But Conner seems to make everybody smile...
He makes Mommy Melody smile
He makes Daddy Brian smile
He makes "Nana" Karen smile
He makes his Aunt Jean...well...look like a fish smiling.
He makes his Mommy and Daddy kiss
(which is why he will be getting a brother or sister this summer
...or maybe it wasn't just the kissing...
And then there is the picture a little ways down below. It is a blurry shot taken by someone...who knows...when the big Ravenel Bridge opened in Charleston a few years ago. People were walking it for the ribbon cutting and getting their pictures taken with our infamous Governor Sanford. For my international friends, who may not know the story, the last year has been tough for our Governor because he was caught returning from Argentina where he had slipped off for a tryst with his "soul mate." He had told everyone he was off hiking on the Appalchian Trail until a reporter caught him getting off an international flight in Atlanta. The scandal hasn't helped his plan to run for President any and didn't do much for his marriage either. But Jay Leno had a field day with it.
This was taken long before the Spanish bull dooky hit the proverbial fan.
