The One That Got Away

Thursday Thirteen - Grandma isn't listless anymore

On St. Patrick's Eve, my granddaughter made a leprechaun trap.
This is the fourth year she's tried and once again the little
guy has escaped, leaving a trail of gold glitter and green candy.
Undaunted, she has already begun planning a new and improved
trap for next year.

Her adventures have provided the inspiration for today's list.

Things that can be lost or hard to catch:

time,
breath,
temper,
friends,
thoughts,
money,
interest,
health,
perspective,
respect,
a break,
keys
and as my granddaughter would tell you, a leprechaun.

  6. Leprechaun trap, how cute! All the things you list are hard to catch. For us, catching a break is about as hard as catching a leprechaun! ;)

  10. I heartily approve of this list. I've never made a leprechaun trap, though. I'll bet that my Grandpa Dan knew how. Sigh.

  15. Same here. I haven't heard a leprechaun trap precisely because of different culture. I really appreciate the time that you have spent in visiting and commenting my blog.

    Looking forward to reading more of your post Grandma
