John and Sonia aka Grandma and PopPop, after subletting a condo down here in DC for the winter, have recently gone home to Boston.
Gearing up for selling the house and the move, Veto has gone to Canada to attempt to finish there. Lucy has gone back to her breeder, Joe and Cheryl DeMarkis for field work.

So, Last night, Sonia calls.
Sonia: Hi Jack!
Jack: Hi Grandma!
Sonia: How are you?
Jack: Well, I really miss Lou
Sonia: OH! I REALLY miss you too!!
Jack: Oh, no. I really miss Lucy!

looooooong pause (do you her grandma's balloon deflating??)
Sonia: Oh, um, well, I am sure you do, Jack.

More Family Humor
My sister stays with us during the week to help with the kids in a quasi-nanny capacity. Anyway, she is near-sighted and never wears her glasses. She also has quite the sweet tooth.

A few days ago, she comes up stairs with this small bag in her hand.
Her: What are these? I don't have my glasss on and can't read the bag. I ate one and they are really nasty. The second one was gross too.
Me: Um, Eileen, those are dog treats. (wondering why if the first one was bad, did she eat the second one.)
Her: Ack. Oh, Yuck, disgusting, etc....
Me: Eileen, did you see the dog on the package?
Her: A dog? I thought that was a bear and these were gummy bears. I have to go brush my teeth.
Al, trying to be helpful: That's ok, Jeremy (our dog) doesn't much like them either.

A bit later:
Me: Here, Jack, take this bone down to Aunt Eileen.
Jack: Why?
Me: Tell her that Jeremy wants to share with her.
Jack: OK



Eileen: MONICA!! That's not funny!!
