......Me of course!
It is only the 4th month of the year and I already have this award locked up. It all started yesterday when our daughter Jessica had the day off and we decided to head to the zoo with grandkids Dylan and Kendall for a day of fun. It was Wednesday after all and it would be nice and quite day at the zoo. Wrong! It was spring break at the local schools and the parking lot was absolutely packed.
Getting inside was not any better, it was a maze of single, double and even quad strollers and that was only 1/3 of the kids in the zoo, the other 2/3 were screamers running around from exhibit to exhibit on a sugar high.
Now anyone who knows me, knows how much I LOVE kids, it was a trait I think I inherited from my father and he from his father. A long generation of total tolerance with screaming kids. The more screaming and running around the happier I am. Not to mention the germ-fest that must be going on in that place! I had to take a sanitizer shower when I was done but I survived without having one melt down or hurting one kid! Thus, the Grandpa of the Year award!

All in all it was not a bad day at all.
Photo Challenge Day 3.....
For day 3 of the black and white photo challenge I selected this panoramic shot taken at Saguaro National Park outside of Tucson Arizona. You really have to click on it and enlarge it to see all the detail of these giant wonders of the desert.
This photo makes me think of John and Pam whose blog is "Oh The Places They Go!" whom I would like to nominate for this challenge. John and Pam are hunters of the ever elusive crested saguaro and are very serious hikers who visit some wonderful places and take great pictures. (I don't think you have been nominated previously)
The only rules of the challenge are:
1. On five consecutive days, create a post using a recent or past photograph in black and white.2. Invite another blogging friend each day to join in the challenge.
