They thought it was a riot.  I told Izzy that I would polka with her if there was an Oompa band at one of the tents.  She texted her dad that she and I were going to dance the “polka-dot”.  Gotta love kids.

Today I am grateful for German heritage.  I sang the old polka, “Because” to my granddaughter and her friend on the way to Musik Fest the other day.  Yes, sadly I know all of the lyrics.  All.  I’m channeling my dad, Willie here.

I had her pop a picture of the Walkaway German Sundae in a cup so we could add it to the ever-growing list of disgusting food and food combinations no human should eat.  I’m grateful to be of German heritage because I have more sense than to buy into that!  I’d rather sing.  Gimme a four beat. . . “Just because you think you’re so pretty!  Just because you think you’re so hot!  Just because you think you got something. . .”

Each and every day I find something to be grateful for. My gratitude's are heartfelt, personal, moving and often humorous. Facebook followers have encouraged me to branch out. I hope you will relate.
