fingerprint friday

Grandpa doing a word search puzzle.  Right now, he's laughing and clapping at Barney's antics on The Andy Griffith Show.  He likes to watch it with the lights off, though, so I don't have a good picture.  :)

Recent funnies from Grandpa: 
Grandpa worked for the plane manufacturer Beechcraft for 40+ years.  He likes pictures of planes.  The other day he saw one in the newspaper and said, "Hey, here's a nice airplane...oh, it's a Boeing. Never mind."

Grandpa talks back to the people in the commercials we see over and over and over.  Yesterday, he lost his patience with the guy who says "I can stay in my own home!" because he doesn't have to move into a nursing home since he got his scooter:  "You told us that before!   Stay in your home!   You're getting as bad as a woman!"

(I gotta' go - Grandpa likes to eat lunch early and pretends to faint when he's hungry.  His fake sighs have just gone from silly to melodramatic to ridiculous.)
