October is the month for Halloween celebrations. My grand offspring have picked a Star Wars theme for their costumes this year. Here we see Princess Leia Organa, and Sith lord, Darth Vader, sitting on my couch. My two year old grandson was practicing his best bass voice while saying, "Luke, I am your father." I understand from my daughter that it changed a little when he got home. He altered his lines to say, "Pappy, I am your father - and you too Luke." He now has a light saber - I hope it is soft plastic. Pappy takes a beating when toys are introduced and not approved for use on grandparents.
Princess Leia can't talk yet, but she gave us a piece of her mind/mouth when we asked her to leave the headdress on for one more picture. Pappy was born in October. It is my favorite month. I'm ordering my costume from AARP. I am going to check on their offer of guaranteed low rates on grand parenting insurance. Have a wonderful weekend. Pappy
