I enjoyed your story. LBJ runs the country but if he wants a drink of water in 'THIS' house he has to ask the King or Queen for permission. My mom told me a similar story using John and Jackie Kennedy at the time. After I told her that this was America and kids deserve ice cream for competing chores. The president lets John-John eat ice cream in his office.Well my sister lowered her head and said uh-oh, then my mother called my FULL NAME. Then she raised her hands to her hips and said, not even the president of the United States or his wife can apply America's rules in this house. With her head straight and her neck moving, she moved here lips and said THIS ISMY HOUSE AND I LIVE HERE THE RULES IN THIS AMERICA HOUSE ARE MINE (grabbing my left ear-owww!) I am the only grown up who sets the house rules here and twogrown people cannot live in the same house with different rules. So if you cannot abide by my rules of the house, then you can take your grown a_ _ out there in the rest of America but until you do, chores are responsibilities not favors. Ice cream is out of the question. -Terry
Thank you for a wonderful tribute... your mother must have been avery specialperson. I loved the Kingdom Story! And I would totally agree we do not appreciate the time we have until it's gone.
