Elizabeth and I ... and then Andrew and his Great-Granddaddy Andy....

Elizabeth and I are closer than most aunts and nieces, I think.

Here we are Sunday at Andrew's T-Ball game...

And here we are (were) years ago at Elizabeth's graduation from Texas A&M (Gig 'Em, Aggies).

We are special together.
Super special.

Her mother was my identical twin...
so technically she's more than just a niece.

And her son is more than just my great-nephew...

Here he is playing T-ball...with his dad being the head coach...

And here I am with my more-than-great-nephew, after the game...


And here he is playing the violin (which I didn't know he could play)!
Whoa!

His mother told him that his great grandfather  ("Great-Granddaddy Andy" - his namesake ) learned how to play the fiddle at age 70!  And then he played in nursing homes and 'opening exercises' in Sunday School... and here at his 80th birthday party....
He was inspired to learn to play by a lady who learned to play when she was 80!

Is that not inspiring?!

It inspires me ... to think ... what's next that I can learn?!

Yeah.
