A visit from the oldest grandson

That's the oldest grandson; those of you who have followed my blog for awhile remember how he lived with us for almost a year. He still comes by once in awhile: I've decided he has some sort of radar that tells him when I've cooked enough to make the trip out here worth his while.

This morning I made about a gallon of hamburger stew. At the time I thought, "Cliff and I may get tired of this before it's gone."

I needn't have worried. Arick arrived and had a couple big bowls of it for breakfast, then a couple more bowls for dinner. And managed to drink half a gallon of tea. I had forgotten how that boy eats! I guess since he's twenty-three years old, I should quit calling him a boy, shouldn't I?

I'm not complaining about his food consumption, mind you. It's always good to see him.

At least there was enough stew left for Cliff to take some to work this evening.

Oh, in that picture? He was laughing because of me taking his picture. In case you wondered, that's my purse. Arick doesn't carry one.

I see he still likes to keep both the remote and his cell phone close at hand.

It's good to see that Arick is doing well. Those guys sure can eat can't they?

I'm still calling my sons 'the boys' It seems no matter how old they get that is what they are to me. Glad you had some help with all that stew.

Don't ya know? All us boys come with that food radar. It's part of the standard package. Let no good food go to waste!

That young man was really hungry, especially for Grandma's cooking. Helen

Arick sure looks like a handsome young man. I wish all of them smiled that big when their grandma took their picture.
