He was known as Angry Andrew;
Any mistake and his temper flew.
People stepped aside,
Until the day he died
Without a friend to bid him adieu.
I picked up my five and seven year old great-granddaughters for a hundred mile ride today. We had a bit of fun with Angry Andrew. Grandma threw in a bit of character study and a moral lesson regarding being nice and having friends, as well as new vocabulary words with “bid him adieu.” Angry Andrew reminded them of a boy who always acts up and doesn’t have friends I enjoy having them as a captive audience. Oh another thing, they tried lots of fooling me because of April Fool’s Day. So I’m on with a lesson again – but I knew better than to call it that. Anyway it was good to reinforce the difference in telling things not true today and telling lies on other days. They caught me off guard a few times. That part of the day was great; some of the rest was rather iffy.
