A Potent Wizard



The boy made it home from football camp.  Can you tell?

  2. I remember the smell of my grandfather who worked a farm, he didn't smell bad just different from the younger men who didn't work and wore aftershave lotion. I realized a while back that I now smell like my grandfather, the smell of work, I like it.

    1. The smell of work is a good thing. Though, sometimes a bit strong :)

  4. That's a lot of football clothes and a very long clothes line. I bet it's nice to have him back home. :-)

  10. Woah, that's a lot of laundry! Judy's comment made me laugh because my husband used to play hockey in college and man oh man, did his equipment smell bad afterwards!

  17. That's so funny, but it can't be as bad as the bag of potatoes I found today in my cellar that has one rotten, gloppy, runny, stinky potato in there fouling all the rest and the cellar too.

  18. Oh, stinking boys. I had two brothers, I know.

    I'm feeling well enough to comment/reply. Thanks for your nice words. ♥
