A Recent Conversation With My Nephew

My nephew J: “Aunt Shell, I love to watch the chicks!”

Me:  “Yah, they are pretty fascinating, aren’t they?”

a few seconds go by…

Me:  “How old are you now J?”

J:  “Seven and a quarter… or maybe it’s a nickel?”
















It’ll be fun to show him this picture in another ten years and ninety-five cents… and something tells me, the chicks he’ll be noticing then won’t have beaks and feathers.


  1. funny little fella….he dosen’t look a day older than six and some loose change.

  5. Very good Mamapua, you never dissapoint me!

    Jeff, I think you really should do that! I mean really, mixing years and months with monetary values… if that were an accepted norm some of us would be worth a pretty penny here!

    Rachel, the little guy has the cuteness factor goin’ on! As for me…I’m just plain silly, I know – I take after my father. It’s his fault!

    Kristie, yah…with as many kids as are floating around here, I’m always in for a good chuckle!
