Every now and then I discover the United Arab Emirates are reading my blog...and I just can't help but wonder why.    I don't think I have any friends over there, (soldiers or otherwise), nor do I have any family working in that region...
And yet- every month or so they check in for a quick read.   (Hello- whoever you are!)

Who's the most interesting or unusual reader you've discovered on your blog?

4 years old, going on 16!

(The blog crisis is seemingly resolved.  [Phos, I have to wonder if you aren't on to something with the hotmail v the gmail acct!]  This is a re-post from  4 years ago because J is now 8 and in 3rd grade...with as much spunk as ever.   A current post is brewing :)

Yesterday, I got to spend 2 hours with my nephews... J is 4, A is 1.

J is percocious and ambitious and likes--no loves--to demolish things, throw balls, build stuff and tear it down, ride his bike fast, be a cowboy, be a police name it--I have never seen a child with so much spunk!

Anyway, he is going to pre-school this September and I asked him, "J, which school will you be going to this fall?"

He put his hands on his hips in a very grown up way and with the most serious look on his face (because, this is after all a very serious matter), he said,

"Aunt Nonna, I will be in High School!" :)

I love that monkey!
