Like the rest of the grandchildren, Bella has no physical characteristics like mine. She has brown eyes; mine are blue. Her hair is dark; my hair was light. My skin is very fair; hers is darker. She has very long legs; mine are short.
Recently she stayed the night with us. The next day when she was gathering her stuff to take home, Mr. Fixit noticed a pair of her shoes that she hadn’t packed. I said, “I didn’t notice that you weren’t wearing the sneakers yestersday.”
She said, “Well, these sneakers didn’t match what I was wearing yesterday. I was wearing brown pants so I had to wear my brown shoes.”
Yes-s-s! That’s my girl!
