Ni Hao

Hi, Princess!

Well, today I just heard someone in passing say ni hao. And the first thing I thought of was the show you used to watch,┬áNi Hao, Kai-Lan. Remember when your mommy worked at Wawa and we would watch it? It was one of your favorite shows. Anyway, that’s all for today.

Love you bunches and bunches

Hi, Princess

Well, nothing at all happening right now. My tooth hurt yesterday. Do you remember when your mommy drove me to the dentist? You were really young then. It was before she had the brown car, before she had the station wagon I bought for her, before my Cutlass that she used to drive. I think it was when she had the red car.

We go through cars a lot, don’t we!

All my love,

The Summer Olympics

Hi, Princess!

Well, every four years we have three things that happen. It’s called a Leap Year, because February has an extra day. There’s a presidential election. And there’s the Summer Olympics.

Remember, four years ago, when the world fell in love with gymnast Gabby Douglas?

It’s too early to tell who the world will fall in love with this time around. But the 2008 Olympics will always be my favorite, because that’s the only one I shared with you and your mommy.


Love you,

Hi, my darling granddaughter.

It was eight years ago when I called your mommy and asked her to let you stay up late and watch Barack Obama give his acceptance speech. A lot has happened in eight years.

Well, tonight I watched Hillary Clinton give her acceptance speech. I couldn’t help but think about your mommy. I couldn’t help but think of you.


I miss your mommy every single day. I miss you every single day.

All my love,
