I'm sure over the years many father's have walked along with their sons pointin' out the highlights.....bugs, birds, trees, sea shells....whatever was on the journey. Fathers pass out widsom and knowledge about whatever item that they may come across to their son....very heartwarmin'.....a HallMark Moment.
Well this is a Hightower Moment...
Roy's mother loves day lilies....her yard is covered with different beds of different day lilies...very pretty and lots of work. Her sister knowin' this planned a trip to a local day lily farm.
As they walked along the day lilies listenin' to the owner talk about all her beautiful flowers, Roy and his father fell back a bit from the group.
Just a father and son walk.
Roy noticed up in one of the trees a large gatherin' of bees....honey bees no doubt. He does what comes natural to him...he is a father too.
He points out to HIS father that there is honey bees in the crux of the pecan tree.
His father looks up to see them.
Then RoySr starts lookin' around on the ground and found a nut. He picked it up.
Seein' exactly what was on that old man's mind, and knowin' full well what would happen if he didn't stop that old man, Roy told him, "Don't you throw that at the bees!! If you do, I'll spank your ass!!"
RoySr dropped the nut and went off poutin' like a 4 year old!
QueenVictoria was not amused as her husband not with the group and made apologies to the farm owner. QV was unaware of the "Hightower Father and Son Moment"
