Art Linkletter's House Party was a TV program that aired from 1945 to 1967. One feature of the show was a segment called "Kids Say the Darndest Things." I was reminded of the show yesterday evening.
I had accompanied our Molasses Creek band to Portsmouth where they performed for the Homecoming. When we returned to Ocracoke we decided to gather at my house for dinner and an evening of socializing. Outside, my five year old grandson, Lachlan, plucked a yellow flower from the edge of the yard, and handed it to me as a gift.
"Lachlan," I said, "take it inside and put it in a glass of water to keep it fresh."
Lachlan just looked at me...and said "It's YOUR flower." And then he walked away.
