A Couple of Observations

As I was thinking about what to write today, I came up with two things and couldn't decide which one to write about. So I decided to talk about both of them. First as I'm working on the computer, I'm watching the Survivor's last show for this season. I didn't watch most of the season this year. I didn't have the time, but I saw some of the commercial (a lot of them centered around Russell). The last show got down to four "villains" and one "hero." When Colby didn't win the immunity idol, he was gone so it came down to four villain team members battling for the win. It is interesting to see who wins in the end. So often the scheming got to be too much for me. I watched the show over the years because it is a study in human nature and as a writer I found it interesting. And this season four villains were the last four people. Does this mean that villains have a better chance at winning Survivor? If that is the case, what does that say?

The second thing I wanted to talk about are my four granddaughters. They came over today for a few hours while my son and his wife went grocery shopping and ran a few errands. Can you imagine taking four little girls grocery shopping--one is one year old and another almost three? My husband and I had a ball playing with them. Children keep you young. But boy, do I wish I had the energy I had years ago. I now know why young people have children. They take a lot of stamina to raise. But worth every bit of the energy and time it takes.
