The Word of the Day: Earth

Earth

Earth

From Brian: Yesterday morning, Robert wanted to watch TV. So what did I find? The “Earth” Channel on Dish Network (channel 212 on Dish Network). It’s a still image of Earth with some soft music in the background. Now, Robert likes to say, “Earse! Earse!

(Originally, he said, “Munna! Munna!” which is his way of saying, “Moon, moon,” but I corrected him.)

From Brian: One of the things that we did for Valentine’s Day was go out to lunch. I’m sometimes amazed at how well Robert eats by himself!
