Unborn Child Gets Jump On Me

            How long is a 5 K anyhow? 

            I staggered to the finish, proud to still be on my feet. And I appreciated the cheering crowd as I crossed the line. I didn’t see them mind you, I had passed out about a mile back!

            It was fun and a special treat to share with Jess and Jessica. They waited till after the race to share another special event with us. They are expecting! Wow! Right in the middle of the celebration something dawned on me—

            Danged if I hadn’t just got outrun by my son, my daughter-in-law, an eleven year old girl, a lieutenant-colonel from the Spanish American War, a grandmother wearing socks…….and a child that hadn’t even been born yet!

            I’ve got to find a new hobby.
