Friends

Hi, Princess!

Well, there’s not much going on right now, and it’s hard to think of anything new to write about. But football season is getting ready to start, and something just happened that made me think of your mommy.

The quarterback for the Eagles is a kid named Carson Wentz. He came from a small school out in the middle of nowhere. So he comes to the big city and makes a new friend, Jordan Matthews. He’s a wide receiver. They did okay last year. Not great, but Carson was just starting to learn how to play in the NFL.

So, this year, they were all fired-up to have an even better year. They practiced together with some other guys, and things were looking good. Then Jordan got traded.

Yes, it’s a business, and stuff like that happens all the time. But they were pals. Carson even drove Jordan to the airport when he left. Even though they’re grownups, they were still a little sad to say goodbye.

That reminded me of when your mommy and I moved from Philly back to Bucks County. Your mommy wasn’t much older than you are now. She was sad to say goodbye to one girl who was her best friend. They stayed close friends and talked on the phone and visited each other. So even though someone moves away, you can still be close!

Well, that’s all for now. I’ll try to write again soon.

Love you!

Car Week 

Hi, Princess!

Well, Leslie, it’s car week. That’s just a stupid TV thing. See, they have shark week when everybody has shows about sharks, and they have car week when everybody has shows about cars.

Every year they showcase a bunch of antique cars, a bunch of brand-new cars, and a bunch of concept cars. A company comes up with some ideas about what they want their cars to be like in the future, and that’s a concept car! So, this will be fun. I have some concept car pictures from this year and some concept cars from the past. Check them out, while listening to Earth, Wind and Fire!

I’ll try to write again soon. Love you soooooooooooooooooooo much!

I changed everything just so I could get back on this site

Hi, Princess!

Yes, it’s Pop pop, and I’m back! Okay, so here’s what’s been going on. I couldn’t access this site, so there was no way I could stay in contact with you. I tried absolutely everything. So, I got rid of my internet. I moved from one apartment to another in the same complex, you remember you came to my old apartment sometimes? I got a new computer. A new internet plan. I switched from a whole bunch of different browsers, and finally, here I am!

It’s been kind of lonely, most everybody I know lives in Florida now.  I’ve decided that no matter what, I’ll stay here in Pa. with the hope that one day I’ll see you again.

My new apartment is bigger than the old one. It’s been ridiculously hot, so I’ve had the air conditioner on. Anyone that knows me knows I HATE to put the air conditioner on because it costs a lot of money.

I don’t have cable TV, I have Playstation Vue instead. It’s pretty good, and it’s cheaper than Comcast. My favorite show, Doctor Who, has even been in the news. The Twelfth Doctor is going to regenerate this Christmas. Basically, that means a new actor is going to play the same character. It’s kind of complicated. But, anyway, when the Doctor regenerates, he is going to be a she!

A lot of people don’t like what President Trump is up to right now. I still can’t believe I’m writing to you and using “President Trump”. I don’t want to tell you what to think about politics or religion. But I just have to say I liked President Obama a whole lot better.

Somehow, my Red Sox are still in first place. Not because they’re any good, but because every other team is just as bad!

Well, I guess that’s all for now.

Love you and miss you soooooooo much!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Hi, Princess!

Yes, today is Mother’s Day. Your mommy was the greatest mommy in the whole wide world!

Your mommy was a wonderful person, everyone that knew her loved her. But more than anything else, she loved you! It was like, she was always a charming, happy, warm, giving, just plain nice person. But when she had you, it was like, she was complete. It’s hard to explain. But then again, so was your mommy!

Love you so much,

Split Pea and Ham

Hi, Princess!

It’s so hot today. Why am I making soup? I mean, when I make soup it takes hours and hours. It’s not like just opening a can of soup. It takes forever!

I remember your mommy and I would have lentil soup from a can, but that was a long, long time ago!  And she really liked lentil soup for some reason, which was okay with me. Of course, she also used to scarf down cookie dough ice cream. Yuck!

Anyway, that’s all for now. I have to get back to my soup.

Love,
