The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock, and exalted be my God, the rock of my salvation
2Samuel 22:47

A few days ago, we received an electronic note from my Dad, famously known as the boys' Granpa Bill.  The noted said:

Not often, but periodically I see something that you may enjoy.  I generally table my decision for a time considering all the elements.  As is my nature, showering gifts to others is something I am not known for, and then again I like to draw the curtain open and let the whimsy fly.  Also, as surprises go, I don't like to let out any hints so I won't at this time either.

We were puzzled but patient and yesterday we were rewarded for our waiting with this:

{I had to include a picture of our favorite element, Uranium, as that is what really keeps the food on the table around here.}
Thanks, Dad!
 {Just for fun, see if you can count all the hints in the above note.}


  1. I LOVED the periodic table when I was growing up! This is so fun! I'm sure your boys will enjoy it! :)

  2. Initially I thought a curtain that had a sillouete of the famous statue by Auguste Rodin,but then I listened to the better Angels of my nature.
    probably a good thing
