Too Old for Bingo<< All Articles
I’ve often wondered if any of my children would develop the desire to write. All four are wonderfully creative, but to this point none has shown any inclination toward the written word. Just recently, however, my eight-year-old grandson James, started writing stories.

His school was broken into and vandalized. James wrote a story about it. In his story his suspects were apprehended and he sent them off to the clinker. In James’ words, "By the time they got out of jail, they were too old for bingo."
