*One of our grandsons, Ben, loves wearing costumes, singing, dancing, and painting. Another, Carlo, loves inventing things, taking things apart and making something different from them, picking up “treasures” from streets and parking lots, and writing/illustrating stories. Ben’s mom is an extraordinary scrapbooker, while Carlo’s dad excels in fine woodworking. Imagination, like people, comes in many forms.

*Just six months apart, cousins Ben and Carlo are inseparable and want to be roommates when they grow up. Last year, at age 6, they were overheard saying, “We can’t get married. They won’t let us.” Currently, Ben lives in Kingsville and Carlo in New Braunfels (three hours apart). Next month, Carlo is moving to California, while Ben is moving to New Braunfels. Their wider separation is going to be very difficult to watch. They won’t be able to see each other every month, probably just once a year.

*You cannot cursorily wash a cheese grater. If you don’t wipe or soak it before the cheese remnants and smears dry/harden, it’s a bugger to clean.


About Cyranette

I have been writing since I was 11 and am now a grandmother of 9. Aside from my family, I love writing, reading, movies, gardening, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 years. I am a survivor of rape, abuse, and cancer. I believe in love, kindness, and common sense. I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.

One Response to Imagination

    Random thought: sometimes I spray the grater with Pam (inside and out) before grating cheese. It’s much easier to clean.
