A text message came to my phone. It was in all caps and it read KEEP YOUR CARDBOARD. Now when the grandchildren take the time to “borrow” a phone and send a text in all caps you know they really mean it. Since I had no idea what they needed it for I save everything large and small.
The phone call came a couple days later. “Do you know Chris Gilmour?
“No, I don’t believe I do? Do you know him?”
“Nope, but I know about him. He makes really cool things out of cardboard and glue. They call it art. “
“Oh, have you seen his art?”
“We did at school it is really cool. He lives in England I think. We think that maybe we will be cardboard art makers too. “
With my background you might have guessed what I said, “Well you can do anything you’d like as long as you keep your grades up and out of trouble. (I have been saying that since they were born. I was trying to plant seeds.) So we’ll see how long they want to be artists.
