Yesterday (Sept 1.) our grandson called informing us he had a Cross Country Meet, and asked if we could be there to cheer him on? I haven't been feeling good (barely can walk) let alone drive 70 plus miles to the meet but this is the little guy that grew up with me, he is my buddy and he admires me for who I am so I said to Rose we're going.

Left here it was cloudy, rainy and cold but 70 miles south east it was very hot and humid, I was way over dressed for the event and having to walk a half mile to the track I thought I was going to die. LOL! But I got there; my medical condition is flaring up and walking isn't an easy task, but I was a soldier once so I marched on.

That little boy that I held in my arms seven short years ago is now a fine young man who follows in his mothers foot steps, our daughter is a marathon runner and that is what Drew wants to do too.

For this event there were around one hundred kids registered in his class, these kids(Boy class) will run 1/2 mile, in what seemed to be 90 degree heat. I know I would have had a hard time doing it even if I could run.

Drew sucked it up and ran a half mile in 3 minutes and 40 seconds, God bless him, and God bless all those young kids; none of them quit. I was so proud of all of them even the last boy that could barely make it but he did. I truly enjoyed the entire event and was proud to see all those kids do it. As the age groups moved up so did their distances, it was great to watch.

Congratulations Drew! You made your Poppy and Grammy proud...




Drew is in the green shirt.




Only top 25 received medals, and that is why I was so proud of that last boy to cross the line; he didn't have to other than the satisfaction that he did it. Congratulations to that child too.

Usually I just check the 1:24 board; glad I dropped in and saw this thread, Myron.

I remember some of those pics of him you posted when he was smaller.
