"Get Crackin"

                                         "Daily sketches"—My parents Jim and Jackie Lawson
We lost my dad just before Christmas, so our solar system has gone a little dark. He died peaceful at 88. My mom is still with us and really doing quite well at 89, though she thinks she looks more like 82... 
She would rather sit in a chair in the sun or on a couch with her Kindle, but we make her get up and out to stay vital and healthy. She is told over and over by us and her doctors to keep moving, so when she is reluctant to do just that, we love to tell her what my dad always told us kids—"GET CRACKIN"
