Our Grandchildren Have The Bug!

My husband reads his ‘second Bible,’ the Gas Engine
Magazine, faithfully when it arrives. So I just had to share a
little incident with the readers.

We have been taking our granddaughter to shows in our area since
she was two years old and our grandson since age three. After once
attending a show they had the ‘bug!’ They love to ride the
horse and wagons, buggies, Tains or whatever else anyone will let
them ride on or in! Jenny is probably the only seven year old girl
who has her bedroom curtain covered with gas engine show buttons
and ribbons. She’s upset if she doesn’t get a button at the
gate to pin on her blouse. All winter the kids asked:
‘When’s the next gas engine show?’ Early this spring I
said, ‘Jenny, do you know it’s only five months till our
first show?’

Her quick reply was ‘Alright!’ Teasingly her mother
said, ‘Jenny, you know now that you’re seven you can’t
go with Grams anymore, you’re too old to go.’ Grandpa
Norman said, ‘Well, Red, (because of her hair color) how old
are you?’ Without any hesitation she seriously said,
‘four!’ We got the biggest laugh out of this! Would you say
this little girl loves engines shows?

God bless all our good Gas Engine friends.
