As we sat there eating they started commenting out the
grasshopper in the flowers.
(they know that having bugs on the dining room table is
nothing new around here!) 
But the fun thing is: He's been there for a week,
and I had no idea!!
Oh the stories this little fellow could tell!!

The joy on the face of our Little Sweetie
as she opened the package and realized
I had knitted a new hat for her for her birthday!

can add a single hour to his life?
