Believe it or else

james-556x400When Robby and I were young-ins  in the 50’s we enjoyed our cartoons just like most kids of our time.  One of our favorites was a show satirizing the Ripley’s Believe or Not franchise that was quite popular at the time.  Cleverly, it was renamed Believe it or Else. We still tend to iterate the latter phrase to this day when we are referring to any subject or situation that seems unbelievable.

Well, I have a good one for you.

My grandkids are a lot like your grandkids—they are better looking, brighter, and sharper than other people’s.  Okay, you might argue that but you know you won’t win that debate.

But see if your kids, grandkids, or siblings can match this:

Callie James will be 5 years old on the 5th of the month (May)           

Alec James will be 11 years old on the 11th of the month (February)

Aiden James will be 13 years old on the 13th of the month (July)

What are the odds of that?

BELIEVE IT OR ELSE!

Note: This story was submitted on the 11th: a belated happy 11th birthday to Alec!
