Yesterday afternoon I was on the phone with Villas Girl. Well, that's not news. We are always on the phone. I think she was telling me about seeing another doe when she was walking the nature trail the day before. I happened to be sitting in front of my computer at the time, just doodling around with mah jongg. (Also not news) I finished a game and went to my email just to check, and found a message from California, saying, "Get off the phone! We're trying to call you!" So Villas Girl and I hung up, and I called California.
Kitty and Isaac were just being silly and playing games together, and decided to include me. Isaac got on the phone and told me what they were doing. Then his mom got on the phone and told me what he had said, because when he's being silly it's almost impossible for me to understand him. She and I talked for a while, then he announced that he wanted to sing me an original song. (His original songs are sometimes pretty darned interesting.) He sang to me about an apple tree that went for a walk and met a polar bear. Then it met a crocodile. (Told you it would be interesting! - the photo is from their last visit in March.)
He ended by telling me that he wants to come see me again and play with the castle. The castle is one that his mother played with when she was his age. I said I hoped he could come pretty soon. He said, maybe when he's four.
So, there you have it, that's how I spent yesterday afternoon. I don't suppose you really needed to hear that, but I needed to tell it. So I did.
You can read some of Isaac's further adventures on his mother's blog. She doesn't post frequently, but I always enjoy it when she does. Do you suppose that might be because I'm Mom? Well, maybe, but I do think she's good.
