It's time once again for Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday, and our letter this week is "F." Summer in coastal Georgia always comes with houseguests. The first group to visit the McEwen Plantation/Bed and Breakfast left last Friday. Our youngest grandchildren, Keillor and Emaline, were here for two weeks along with their parents. These two are among the brightest and most engaging four-year-olds that one could ever hope to meet.

They played in the surf with their parents, and built sand castles, but even the beach can get a little tiring when it's so hot, so one day Emaline wanted to go to the Museumof Science and History in Jacksonville.

Keillor and Emaline have very smart, wonderful, loving parents who have taught their children from the beginning to be polite and helpful. They always say "Please" and "Thank you," and "I'm sorry" when they misbehave. They know how to set the table for meals, how to clear their dishes when they have eaten, and even know how to put a fresh roll on the toilet paper holder without even being asked. These children are the future of our country in the best sort of way. They are bright, energetic, and loving. These are definitely not spoiled, lazy kids.
They left for home on June 21st, and the next houseguest arrived the following day. Today is June 27th.
A fresh roll of toilet paper has been sitting on the toilet tank for two days now. I have no intention of installing it on the holder. Someone else should have taught that lesson a long time ago. It's not rocket science. It's very, very sad.
