My little Mary Frances

In My Young Uns on February 24, 2009 at 3:55 pm

Let me tell you a story about my little Mary Frances.  She’s our middle child and has a lovely, sweet way about her.  It melts daddy’s heart on many occasions, one of which was last night.  I had a date with my girls and as usual that means pizza on a blanket in the living room while watching one of their favorite movies.  On tap last night was “Piglets Big Adventure;” outstanding cinema!  Anyways we had finished our pizza and were all sitting on the couch enjoying the movie when Mary Fran stood up beside me a planted a kiss on my cheek.  She then looked me straight in the eye and said,”I just like you daddy.”  My heart melted, I would have bought her the world if only she had asked.

As a very large and vocal NC State Wolf pack fan it is with great anticipation that I await tonight’s football opener against the South Carolina Gamecocks.  Let me explain further…

I married one of South Carolina’s greatest fans, indoctrinated at a young age, (thanks MEME and Papa) and just as vocal.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I like the gamecocks, just not when they are playing the wolf pack.  I emailed Fran this morning attempting a little jab or two at her favorite team and was rewarded with this charming picture…and so the indoctrination continues, I don’t have a chance.  I love you Franny!!
