Dear Grandad


Dear old grandpa is sitting in his big chair by the fire, he’s surrounded by his little grandchildren all looking up at him as his trembling hand holds his cup and he attempts to swig a little tea down. The kids all look at him in wonderment, all giggling and just being little kids. “Why are you all looking at me like that?” Asks the whizzened old man. “We want to know when you’re going to do the magic trick.” Said one little mite. “Oh,” says grandpa, “and what trick might that be, hmmmm?” “Oh the trick where you turn into a frog.” Grandpa replies, “When I turn into a frog, I don’t know that I can do that one.” “Well we hope you do soon grandpa,” say the wee squirt, “Cause mum says when you croak she’s taking us all to Disneyland!”
