Mama was sound as asleep when I arrived. Loretta tried waking her without much success so I leaned down and began whispering in Mama’s ear and nuzzling her neck. That woke her up! 😉
For me, I perceive Mama as near childlike, and have for some time. It comes to me that this is likely simply a byproduct of displaying no pretense at all. She is what she is, she does not pander or coddle, but she is nice. Well, mostly nice. She shows delight when happy and frowns when frustrated, without hesitation or embarrassment. Just like a kid. I find it quite refreshing and somewhat instructive.
Mama, again, took great delight in my telling of how Katherine claimed to her friend she was gonna marry me and how she hooked me like a big fish and reeled me in. So Mama laughed and laughed whilst I told all this again, for the umpteenth time.
This afternoon I will be back at OPC as Santa. They have the whole costume and, work permitting, Katherine will be there to capture photographic evidence! Should be hoot! 😉
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and have all your Christmas shopping done. We are all ready with plenty of packages under the tree.
Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains
