Two of the Three Pillars



According to The Beautiful Princess Sparkle Pony and my dear friend Matty Boy, The Three Pillars of Successful Blogging are #1 Pretty Girls; #2. Babies: and #3. Dogs. This evening I am proud to present two of the Three Pillars: Numbers 1 & 3. This is my Panamanian granddaughter Alejandra with her BFF Señorita Chompita Wiggletail. Alejandra is six years old, going on seventeen. She will be here for the weekend. She tells everyone "I have a dog, her name is Chompita, and she lives with my abuelos." Chompy has always stayed right next to Alejandra during meals, as Alejandra is a generous and giving soul, and always shares here meals with Chompita. I remember when Alejandra was about three years old, witnessing her taking a bite of her dinner from her fork and then spearing the next bite and giving it to Chompita. As you can see, they loves each other. We are all rejoicing, as abuela Mona baked Toll House cookies (galletas de abuela, as Alejandra calls them!) in honour of Alejandra's visit! AND we had pizza for dinner! Hooray for grandkids!

You have two beautiful ninas there, Padre Mickey! And both of them are blessings.

Minor correction: I believe those are the Three Pillars of successful blogging, but they are old 20th Century recipes for successful magazine covers. Princess Sparkle Pony, a much more successful blogger than myself, says nipple slips, cats and recaps of reality TV shows are the true Three Pillars. She may be correct, but I'm old-fashioned and going to stick with what I like.

Very nice picture and story, Padre. Thanks.

I look forward to when a weekend like that is possible with Evelyn. Until then, I'm glad you have Alejandra to be a grandpa to.

I See You!
