You want to see my grandbabies?Â Three pretty little girls.Â Theyâ€™s my daughter Cherylâ€™s.Â You know she married Robbie Hallmark. Them little girls are smart –. Just like their mamma.Â Cheryl always made all Aâ€™s in school.Â Of course, I wish one of them would have been a boy.Â But sheâ€™s gonna have another, and this one, itâ€™ll be a boy.Â My mamma said so, Â and she can always tell.
Now her brother, Luke, he graduated from high school three years ago.Â Â Lukeâ€™s not like his sister.Â Heâ€™s the athlete. Heâ€™s not so smart.Â But thatâ€™s just fine.Â A boy can be too smart, you know.Â Really. Take his best friend from high school – that Jimmy Simms.Â He wasÂ a genius!Â He made this science project, Â took first place in the state.Â Even got a scholarship to some college way up North and went up there.Â He donâ€™t come home much.Â Luke ainâ€™t heard from him in a long time. He did come home last summer when his Mama died.Â Luke saw him â€“said he â€™s just turned into a Yankee.Â Luke said didnâ€™t even care who won the Alabama-Auburn game.Â Can you believe that?Â He didnâ€™t even know we beat Auburn. Course, that school he went to, I donâ€™t Â think they even have a football team. Luke says was talking crazy too, said shouldnâ€™t be fightinâ€™ in Iraq!Â Everybody knows:Â If we donâ€™t fight them terrorists there, weâ€™ll have to fight â€˜em here!
Now Cheryl, she went to college too, Â but she didnâ€™t graduate.Â It didnâ€™t make no difference.Â She came home and married her old boyfriend. Sheâ€™s just fine.Â She nearly stayed up there.Â Â She got a scholarship.Â Had a boyfriend up there.Â But then she come home, and Robbie started hanginâ€™ around.Â Robbie, heâ€™s a good olâ€™ boy.Â Not too smart, but a good Christian boy.Â Iâ€™m glad Cheryl saw sense and married Robbie.Â I didnâ€™t want my little girl marryinâ€™ that Yankee boyfriend of hers. Iâ€™ll say I kinda helped things along.Â I think Robbieâ€™s always been sweet on my Cheryl.Â They went steady in high school.Â So when she come back home that summer, I made sure her and Robbie saw each other a lot.Â Hired him to work on the house, had him stay for supper, go to church with us.Â And it worked.Â Cheryl and him got married.Â She Â didnâ€™t go back up North. Â She was takinâ€™ courses at the junior college, but sheâ€™s so busy with them girls, she never finished.Â Donâ€™t matter.Â Sheâ€™s happy.Â I think I did the right thing, putting them together that way. I felt pretty good, but my wife got all mad.Â Said I should of kept my nose out of it.Â Let Cheryl do what she wanted to do.
Maybe she was right.Â But who knows, she might have married Robbie anyway.Â Â Â It all turned out fine.Â Cheryl does look kinda sad sometimes, but I think itâ€™s because sheâ€™s just tired.Â After all, sheâ€™s gonna have another baby.Â Hope itâ€™s a boy this time.Â Iâ€™m gonna buy him a football.
