PETER ENTERTAINS A YOUNG LADY
It is Thursday and I am with Grandpa for the day. We are entertaining two ladies this morning/afternoon ~ a little girl 6 months older than me and Nana Sue.
What is a boy to do while waiting to meet a young lady?
Blow bubbles of course. What a silly question.
Gosh Grandpa . . . what a beauty and it did not go pop straight away.
The door bell rang and so we go to the door and meet our visitors, Iris and Nana Sue.
It's not long before Grandpa gets out the cakes and makes the grown ups a cup of coffee. Those cakes are yummy and Iris and I had two each and poor Grandpa and Nana Sue had just one. Of course in these photos I had already eaten mine.
Then it was play time. Grandpa 'wound us all up' (typical of him) and we chased around the house on my car and tricycle whilst being hotly pursued by a large Caterpillar.
Grandpa managed to get just one action shot because we were going so fast and Nana Sue was pushing Iris.
The tricycle was my daddy's when he was a little boy and the caterpillar, which we call "Clatterpillar", was my Auntie Selina's, so it must be 30 years old at least.
Iris and I loved being chased by monsters (Grandpa and Nana Sue no less) and we shrieked and ran for cover.
We both almost got the hang of riding the tricycle, but we need a bit more practice to get it right.
Things quietened down a bit and Grandpa let us play a duet on his piano.
Later we changed sides so Iris could play the melody, while I played the bass line.
The time flew by so quickly and we noticed the weather was improving so we decided to visit a local farm where there are lots of animals to see, and then would have some lunch out.
Here am I with a sheep which lets you stroke it.
Iris wore a cow mask . . .
We stayed around for a couple of hours, walking and seeing the animals but it was a bit muddy.
Then Iris started to cry and when we asked her what was wrong she said, "I want to go back to Peter's house and play monsters again!"
So off we went and continued our enjoyment for the afternoon and Iris loved playing with my toys.
When it was time for them to go I gave Iris a little kiss and a hug. I hope I can see her again.
