One day last summer, 80-year-old Loretta saw us as we were about to leave that Assisted Living Center. No, she was not panhandling. She waved us down because she loves My First Wife. So they talked through the car window till it started raining a little. "Ooooh, I gotta get in!" she screamed.

"Here, take the world's best umbrella," I offered, and plunked my hat on her head.

"Well, thank you, sir. Heh-heh," she said and kept on talking. I had plenty of time to take her picture.
I walked her indoors. By the time I got my hat back, my hair was all wet.

Sean and Pop-Pop--New Jersey

Wanna feel happy? Just enjoy the photos below. Have you ever seen a "Pop-pop" any more happy to be next to his grandson? Have you ever seen a grandson so tickled to show off Pop-Pop's hat? This is the way all granddads should look when their grandsons get to horsin' around. And this is one way young boys can make their granddads glow. Here are two cool dudes having one of their best of times together.



Sean's mom is Jennie. Her blog features one of the finest families in New Jersey. She was behind the camera, but I'm willing to bet she was glowing just as much as her dad and son. God bless 'em all. And God bless that cool hat!

Heather is the third blogger I put into my Blogroll many years ago. She’s got a blog that grows on you. She sent me this picture (after I pleaded with her to send it). One day her step-dad put the camera up to his eye for a picture of Brad and Heather. “Wait!” he exclaimed, and plunked his hat on Heather’s head. Heather makes that hat look good, doesn't she?


Heather and her step dad have a fantastic relationship, which is one reason her elegant smile is so attractive. Oh, yeah. Brad is Heather’s husband, the guy without the hat. He needs to send us a picture, too, doesn't he?

Everyone should have a New Years Day hat.

Cliff Morrow is one of my favorite bloggers who sent this picture of his granddaughter. I've had it a little while, waiting for today. Notice how two-year-old Allison artfully chose the color of her hat to match her eye. To me, this delightful photo says, "Peek-a-boo and Happy New Year, too!"

This vision should warm our hearts all year long. Thank you, Cliff and Allison.
