    Your magic chicken story had me bawling like a baby! What a cool thing for your great grandpa to do, he must have loved you so much.

    Yeah, well, I was cute when I was little..........I'm a total photo-phobic now, lol.

    Hope this works - that is my Oner and Bunko. Oh the stories that man would make up to tell us kids - and every time we'd visit he'd give me a sandwich bag filled with all the pennies he had accumulated since my last visit, I always thought I was rich (and now, looking back, I know I was - just not financially). I still remember how she'd start in on him about something from the kitchen and we'd be sitting in the family room - he'd reach up and turn off his hearing aid and when she'd come around the corner yammering at him he'd just smile and nod, not hearing a word of it.
