Old Gem

My father-in-law always address himself as an "old fart" but I always think of him as an "old gem" for his wits and wisdom. He is a very loving   man who exudes  care for everyone.  He told me once that he wants to live   his last few years  of life like Jesus, that no matter how bad a person is, he still  like  them because there is an inner good in them.  I felt bad  when we visited him yesterday  because he told me that I should call him everyday because he gets lonely and bored at home.  Hubby and I offered him to  live with us  but he doesn't want to be a burden to anyone which I don't think would be a case anyway.  
Photos were taken a couple of weeks ago when we went to the park with him
He wants us to visit his two sisters this summer so we told him that  we  can go  at the end of May when the kids are off from school already.  We want to take the opportunity of taking him  because it's very rare that he wants to go somewhere.

 Oh it is so nice to  be able to enjoy the outdoor activities once again.    I felt like the winter stayed so long.  We've got some warm days for the last few days but now it is cool again, in fact  we will have some frost tonight, according to the weather channel.
