Carol Perkins: What goes around . . .

Texas grandchildren, unaccustomed to arctic Metcalfe County winter, remain intact, despite anxious grandmother Perkins' tap on the window to come inside, and a verbal yell about getting frostbitten.
Next earlier column: The beginning of the story: Carol Perkins: In New Year, she'll heed advice of her husband

By Carol Perkins

I yelled as they went out the door, "You're gonna freeze!" They didn't look back or respond. With temperatures in the teens, I turned to their parents. "They don't need to be out there. Do you know how long it takes to get frostbitten?"

I didn't know the answer, but they didn't know that I didn't know. "I don't want one of them losing a toe." They looked at each other and then at me. "You can bet they'll be right back through that door in a matter of minutes," Jon (our son) said. Carla only went along with Jon because she didn't want JC to sit on the couch and be scared for life because he didn't get to fly his drone with the rest of them.
