Is he SMOOTH??


A little girl asked her mother, “Can I go outside and play with the boys?” Her mother replied, “No, you can’t play with the boys, they’re too rough.” The little girl thought about it for a few moments and asked, “If I find a smooth one, can I play with him?”

In our home the answer would be, “No, there is no such thing as a smooth boy. This is my Grandson Preston. He is all boy. He is sweet and bright and can talk you into early retirement, but he is not smooth.

I guess I want to be remembered like that. At my memorial, when they ask, “Was he smooth?” I hope the answer will be, “No, he was rough. But he was sure a lot of fun to play with.”
