166 - Ruth Grimsley
Joanie (granddaughter) spent today with us. She keeps going on about wanting a Princess Elsa (from the Disney feature cartoon "Frozen," adapted from Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen") costume. I don't think there's much play value in one, and it will be pricey. So I gave her my little lecture about how playing isn't about "must-have" items, but about using ones mind and imagination, and THINKING up games. Then I said, "Now it's time for you to tidy up the toys, and I must go into the ktichen to hang up Uncle Manny's laundry." Well, when I'd finished that, I rejoined Joanie in the living room. Some, but not much, toy-tidying had been done, but she was sitting dreamily and quietly and happily on the floor. I asked her what she was doing. "Thinking," she said. "What about, darling?" I asked, feeling quite pleased with myself. "I'm thinking about getting a Princess Elsa dress," she replied

Oy, no We've just "been fruitful and multiplied" again. Seven puppies this time round! Your father and I have no idea how we'll feed and clothe them And you should QUIT that filthy job you've got, just looking after sheep, and come and take your proper place working for your father making doggie-outfits NO money for you until you do exactly THAT And I'm ashamed to tell my own family what you're up to -

Hey, Benny - are you sure going to Greece is a good idea right now? It says in the papers that the pound is only at par with the euro
