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)
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.
