Delivering Cha (Bengali Tea)

IMG_9208

My grandson knows I love Cha! I suspect most every day for 7 years, I had at least one cup of cha, while in Bangladesh. At my grandson’s grad party it was being offered as one of the hot drinks!  If I would have shut my eyes, I could have imagined myself in Dhaka. It was a similar feeling I had when eating the delightful chicken curry, my daughter-in-law prepared for the party! I confess, I stayed away from the delicious assortment of cookies my dear wife baked, though I indulged in the cheese and meat she so nicely arranged on a plate! And the spicy hot cheese ball was excellent! The loaves of French my wife baked were also a hit, of course with different choices of jam, including strawberry.

Our middle grandson (15), trying to outrun the Massillon Tigers players. I (Videographer), for this game am relaxing at the blue barrel, since my camcorder battery went dead with 90 seconds remaining on the clock. It was a sweet victory for  the Mckinley Bulldogs, routing the Massillon team 8-1 in the last game of the season. I can’t forget to give my dear wife credit for this photo, since she grabbed my camera and took some photos, while I was videoing the match. The oldest grandson did score one goal, though he was playing fullback!

Happy Birthday to a Good Friend

My Grandson starts into his 13th year today! Which means that it is his 12th birthday! We may not be together today but I thought of him and a great memory of playing mini golf with him in Florida on Christmas Eve!!

I trust it will be a great year with not too many waves in it for you! Happy Birthday!
