The Trollop and the Trooper

Hands down, I have the greatest neighbor in the world.  
I love him with all my heart.
We called Grandpa Bodily this morning and told him we'd be driving down
to get a picture with him and Reese before school
and this is how he greeted us---
like a trollop hitching for a ride.
So adore him.
 He spent several hours last week helping Reese design
and build her Valentine's box.
My kids go to a math and science magnet and her box
had to be a simple machine.
Grandpa Bodily is a retired HP engineer-- and her box,
when finished, had a pulley, a lever, a wedge- you name it.
 Way out of my league. 
I can just barely handle the decorating.
But what, oh what, would we do without Grandpa Bodily!
 Kean after refusing to eat much of anything since Chemo
on Tuesday is in full Steroid mode as of tonight.
Three dinners.
He did go to therapy this morning
(yesterday he was so not cooperative)
and had a decent morning
but man, you can sure tell he feels lousy.
Here's his sweet little Valentine's he made 
during therapy today.
He's not only an angel but a trooper.
