One of the advantages to being self-indulgent is that I can revel in being an obnoxious grandparent without incurring any guilt. It really is a feeling of absolute freedom. Last time, I introduced you to my granddaughter and her first literary effort. Afterwards, I thought that it might be fun to give my other two grandchildren the same recognition. So here you go folks, this is my grandson Cruz.
Last weekend, Cruz competed in his first horse show. When it was all said and done, he rode away with a blue ribbon. I have a feeling that’s only the beginning of his adventures because having an adventuresome spirit is in his blood.
Those adventures started early when his dad taught him how to fish competitively before he made it to his first birthday. He hasn’t won any tournaments yet, but he’s fielding offers from both FLW and B.A.S.S. I think he’s holding out for a team deal.
Water is still a big part of his recreational activities. Faster is better.
His love of vehicles and speed isn’t limited to being on the water. Being in the air in a helicopter works too.
Speed comes in many kinds. Sometimes the best kind involves combining the venue, in this case water and land.
Of course, sometimes speed is just little more personal.
Sometimes it’s fun to watch other folks take care of the speed thing.
But, in the final analysis, it comes done to attitude, determination and desire. My bet is on Cruz to be the first person to break the light speed barrier. Any takers?
There’s one more grandchild in my little trio destined for fame. Ashlyn is my youngest granddaughter. I’ll introduce you to her next time.
