Little Brother (LB) called Friday night and begged to come stay the weekend. (He always gets his timing just right!) I picked him up at Whataburger, where he had just finished a double Whopper with bacon and cheese. It's so good to see him! We then went to meet friends at the new Chinese/Japanese/Thai restaurant, Ginza.
There, LB ate Sesame Chicken. While we were there, we also picked up an entree for ThatManILove, who was stuck out in the field and hit the house around 10 p.m. Whereby, LB sat down at the table with ThatManILove and finished off his take home box of sesame chicken. The kid is a bottomless pit, I swear. He cracks me up. And he's tall and skinny...I don't know where all this food goes??
After the field trial yesterday, we stopped by my brother Scott’s Auction House in Big Spring to see what he would be selling at his auction on Sunday. An auction house is full of adventure for a 12 year old, just saying. LB met all of Scott’s helpers, two of whom are disabled and are on electric scooters due to their ailments.
LB poked around, asked questions, and generally entertained himself for an hour just by snooping. We were about to leave, and LB discovered a couple of electric scooters. One wasn’t charged - but one was in full operating order. LB ran to Scott, and asked permission to ride it, which Scott gave, grinning. Everybody loves LB.
LB carefully rode around for a while, then came back to where we were all congregated, and starts talking to Scott’s helpers again. While doing so, LB backed the scooter professionally into its original parking space. Everybody’s watching, and enjoying him.
LB turns off the scooter, and stands up, grinning like a cheshire cat, and says loudly, “Wow. Now I know how elderly people have fun.”
He really means it.
