Awesomeiest All-Time Best Buddies

“KK, did the old time Indians play golf?”    

            What pre thoughts could possible conjure up such a question. We hadn’t been talking about golf or Indians.             “Luke, I don’t think so. Maybe they hit a ball with a stick but I don’t think it was golf.”

            “Hitting a ball with a stick is golf, KK!”

            Me and little Luke are like Mutt and Jeff, Tonto and The Lone Ranger, Tom and Jerry, Batman and Robin, Lonzo and Oscar……..

            “You can write a story about us being here by ourselves, KK. You could call it “Awesomeiest All-Time Best Buddies.” I was pondering on how he came up so quickly with such an apt title when he added, “That’s a lot of A’s and B’s, KK!”

            “Luke, I don’t write stories about dogs or grandchildren.” How do you explain to an eight year old that such articles tend to be a tad maudlin and most everyone has pets and off-spring they think are smarter, cuter and funnier than mine?

            We wouldn’t be by ourselves if Cathy hadn’t a’run off to Tennessee to take her niece on a high school graduation trip. She planned to take Luke to Water World, Ship Wreck Island and on a beach outing complete with sand pails, snorkels and those low setting chairs. I was figuring on a run to the dump with some rotten boards, a back yard work party and lunches built primarily around RC colas and Moon Pies.
