A SUNDAY STORY:

As a grandfather, I find this one touching.

Daddy Long

Legs

Stories
about children and their
views of the world are always
touching.

.

.

A
father
watched
his young daughter playing in the garden.

.

He
smiled as he
reflected
on how sweet and pure his little girl
was.

.

Tears
formed in
his
eyes as he thought about her seeing the wonders of nature through such

innocent
eyes.

.

Suddenly
she
just
stopped and stared at the ground.

.

He
went over to
her
to see what work of God had captured her
attention.

.

.

He
noticed she
was
looking at two spiders mating.

.

'Daddy,
what
are
those two spiders doing?' she asked.

.

'They're

mating,'
her father replied.

.

'What
do you
call
the spider on top?' she asked.

.

a
Daddy
Longlegs,'
her father answered.

.

'So,
the other
one
is a Mommy Longlegs?' the little girl asked.

.

As
his heart
soared
with the joy of such a cute and innocent question he replied, 'No

dear.
Both of them are Daddy Longlegs.'

.

'The
little
girl,
looking a little puzzled, thought for a moment, then lifted her foot

and
stomped them flat.

.

'Well, she said, that may be OK in California , but we're not having any of that
shit in Texas'.

I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable

congratulations dubya

We have two G-daughters Chuck.. Yep they do grow up fast.. Seems like yesterday she was watching sponge bob, now shes watching teen shows all about kissing.. The son-n-law is already getting nervous.. Actually he's (this is the hunter) doing a great job of getting them interested in sports, and trying to moderate the girly girl thing

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
