My grandson, Jared, and his friend, Gabe, are experiencing their 15 minutes of fame by being featured on the popular web site DuctTapeGuys.com. Following is the picture and their poem that appeared on the web site.
We wrote this poem to read at The Jr. Poetry Jamm at school. We are 10 years old and in the 4th grade, we will add to our outfits on the day of the jamm.

I am very excited.....I get to meet a blog friend. Doc and I are going to Laughlin, NV next weekend for a few days and DonnaB and her husband will be driving up from their home not too far away. We get to meet for lunch on Valentines Day. This will be such a treat for me and I am very grateful to Donna for making the effort for us to get to meet.
My 8 year old granddaughter, Hope, may be getting a little too much into character for her role as Annie in the musical Annie. She is getting her shoulder length hair cut short today. She told her mom that she wants a perm (which she won't get). I just hope she doesn't start asking to dye her blond hair red.
