So the guy in this picture is my son making one of his funny faces. It's summer and both he and my daughter, Theresa, are doing the summer camp thing again. They're having fun, and making new friends; a good time to be a kid.
I got a call from his Mom saying Charlie wanted to take me to lunch the other day. WOW! This was one of those moments...MY Son wanted to take ME to lunch?!?! Rock on!
I picked him up from Lego-Camp and we loaded into my car. "So, where would you like to go to lunch, Char?", I asked.
"I want to take you to that Tastey Experts place where your favorite sandwhich is, " he said.
"You mean Taste Unlimited?", I said.
"Yeah, THAT place...I know you like that one sandwich over there", he said with a smile.
Twice I offered to pay, but, Charlie was insistent. "This is on ME, Dad", So, I let the man do as he had wished. There's a lot more to this story...and after I dropped him off, my eyes got really misty as I felt that bucking of a good cry coming on...but, that part needs to wait. I have a full day ahead and the last thing I need is to be walking around with red eyes, so, you'll have to come back for that part of the story. :)
I love my kids dearly...and this was a first...and I'll tell you why, shortly.
