Well, yeah, but that’s not quite the point

On Sunday our church had a cookout (and pie-judging contest) at the chicken farm of a couple of our members, out near McLeansville. It featured a petting zoo, horse and pony rides and hay rides. As the tractor pulling our hay trailer started to move, Hooper looked down and announced, “Now we’re going to kill some grass.”

Earlier tonight, he told me about a dream he had on Sunday night: “I was in this town called Bakugan Town that had every kind of Bakugan there is. And I was the mayor. And *I* had every kind of Bakugan there is. (pause) And I had a butler. And it was you. That was a good dream.”


  1. Does the mayor know that when you were his age, not only did you not have a butler, but you were cooking breakfast for your family every morning before you walked to school?

  2. I think I was in more like third grade before I started cooking breakfast regularly, by which time we’d moved and I wasn’t walking anymore. Besides, if I told him that now, he’d probably react the same way I reacted to Dad’s saying he’d walked five miles to school in the snow and five miles back, uphill both ways.

  3. Holy crap, the internets is a small world. I found you via the Joe Killian blog. Obv, you know him, so disregard my email.

    Cheeky monkey, I thought you’d hung up the quill for now.
