Daryl’s Quote of the Day or “Bob vs. Jacob”

My dad is visiting for the next 2 weeks, so I hope this can be a recurring theme. 

During the opening episode of Survivor (which we were watching while eating home-made pizza), Bob Marley was referenced.

Daryl: What? Who is Bob Marley?

Me: Dad, you don’t know who Bob Marley is?

Daryl: No, is he someone from Scrooge?

Me: No!  He is a very well-known Reggae musician…Rastafarian…from Jamaica..you know…

Daryl: Why should I know that?

Rijen: Well, he was really big in the 70’s

Daryl: Is he here on the show? (gesturing to Survivor)

Megan:  ………!!!…

Rijen: No, he’s dead.



When you think about it, they both have very similar posthumous messages, so maybe the connection makes sense.

Other highlights of the day included:

-Hanging out at the playground in the morning

-A lengthy grocery shopping trip

-Grandpa Daryl teaching Fiona how to pick basil leaves off the plant without destroying it

-Grandpa Daryl helping Leif practice some leg-strengthening exercises.

Somehow all three of us ended up on the couch watching Scout songs on youtube when Rijen came home. Please enjoy.

  1. Aww I want to do leg strengthening exercises w/Leif and teach Fiona how to do things. Glad to hear you’re having fun, and Dad’s still learning new things every day.
