Txt me Papa!

19 Mar

We love to watch children learn. That is why Joy and I went into education… and our son and his wife teach, as did our moms.

We especially enjoyed watching our son Anthony develop a love for music and the music industry. I was riding with him yesterday and he was playing a CD of a new project he is working on with someone famous, who I am probably not suppose to mention yet.

Our oldest grandson Jarron has developed a love of theatre and acting and can’t be stopped now. With his looks and talent…well Pops is bragging now!  He follows in the steps of his dad and me. I worked with over 100 productions over the years with wife Joy by my side involved in some way. This was mostly community theatre and school productions, but we worked with some wonderful people, some who are famous in the entertainment world today.

Now….back to learning. Our middle grandson Tabor is a diligent twelve-year-old learner and loves animals. He will likely become a veterinarian . If not, he can become anything!

Our youngest grandson Hewson texted me this week from school. (He can do this because he attends the school we own and his mom is his teacher.) He asked me if I knew who invented the door knob. He wrote me back with excitement that he had Googled and at least found the name of the man who patented the door bell. Hewson wants to become a bounty hunter! Watch out world.

It made me think for a minute. What questions would I have texted my grandfather if such a thing existed when I was ten years old. That would have been great to have had Google, Facebook, and texting to communicate back in 1960.
“Hey Papa Gravley….Did you know that Dick and Jane can see Spot run?”  Ha
The Dick and Jane readers…. Loved them…No wires attached…and I learned to read and learned to spell without technology.
C U L8DR!
