Two Thumbs and a Girlfriend

Last night Judy and I drove over to see the grandkids in their end of year band concert. J-Man plays the trumpet and Bug plays the flute (though I kid her about it being a piccolo.) I am proud of their music ability and the bands sound really good. No toot, toot and honk, honk. They played real music.

But the thing that gave me a few smiles is J-Man has a girlfriend. Not surprising because he is a good looking kid with a big heart. But he is so shy. Girls flirt with him at the store and the mall all the time, and we try to get him to go talk to them, but he won’t.

Well…last night he got in the car with his mom to go to the school and he ask her, “What has two thumbs and has a girlfriend?” Then he stuck his two thumbs up and pointed them back at himself and said cockily, “This guyyy.”

She is in the band, too, though in the seventh grade band (J-Man is in the eight grade band.) Her name is Tessa and she is cute as can be. After this picture was made (by Bug on her cell phone - no adult was allowed to see this in person) she gave him a kiss on the cheek. The Hussy!

And read below, too. I got a couple of cool awards from some very cool ladies. Yeah, J-Man takes after his Paw Paw alright.

HA HA excellent post.

But seriously, check her id.
Why do girls seem to always look older than they really are. I bet you she drives a camero and has atleast 1 ex-husband.

Even still, way to go J-Man!

Mala, she knows a good thing when she sees it. But if she drives a camero, I might be giving J-Man a run for his money.

ACE, you are looking a Johnny Coffey at 14. We are so much alike it's freeky.
