Grandson Walker DePlank, swashbuckling pirate captain
Our Louisiana grandchildren and parents are busy celebrating Mardi Gras season.
Daughter-in-law Katie sent photos she took of three-year-old Walker’s entry in his preschool’s Mardi Gras parade Friday. Walker was Captain Walker DePlank, complete with sailing ship, spyglass, buccaneer attire, and a potentially lethal pun for his name.
Walker’s parents turned the kids’ little red wagon into a pirate ship. Katie made the sail. She called to alert me that photos were on the way. She also praised our son Jeremy’s shipbuilding prowess. She knew I would be an appreciative audience for both bits of information.
Capt Walker DePlank and his dad
Jeremy was especially pleased with the moniker he chose for his little pirate.
Walker was one happy pirate.
I was happy, too. I’m addicted to puns . . . and grandkids.
Happy Mardi Gras tomorrow!
