Not My Parents Monday 1-25-10

I can NOT believe it is already NOT me Monday, again! This week I am featuring my adventurous folks. Last week we were NOT doing school when I heard engine. I did NOT look out the front window to see a couple at the end of the drive. I did NOT recognize the lovebirds at first but I did recognize the motorcycle. I did NOT go out to kiss my parents hello. NO that is NOT a typo, those are my parents on a motorcycle.

I did NOT tell the boys it was ok to get up from their naps to come say hello. NOR did dad put Samuel on the front of the bike to check it out. He was NOT scared NOR did he ask to get off. My child who is afraid of NOTHING would NOT worry about falling off a parked motorcycle.

These fun loving folks of mine are NOT at the age where most people retire and take up needlepoint and golf. They surely are NOT cruising all over God's green earth instead of playing canasta. They do NOT spend their weekends at motorcycle conventions, because everyone knows that grandparents bake cookies and putter in the garage on Saturday afternoon.

I do NOT worry about their welfare because after all they taught me everything I know about being careful and how dangerous motorcycles can be. I do NOT love their adventurous spirit, willingness to try new things and ability to enjoy every minute of life that God has blessed them with.

What have you NOT been up to this week?
