The Countdown Begins


The above image, Dance Of The Firefly is also available as a Desktop Background

Today's song is Baubles, Bangles And Beads, by the Kirby Stone Four, released in 1958.

In a month's time, perhaps less, our daughter's second child will be born. That child is a boy and has been giving our daughter a more difficult pregnancy this time around. My wife, Sherry, will be there about ten days to help our daughter around the time of delivery. For the first child, our granddaughter, Sherry was able to stay there a month.

Our granddaughter now sleeps in her own bed with a guard-rail to keep her from falling out. I'm told in the morning, she stands at the door-gate and calls for one or the other of her parents. She has about a 30-word vocabulary now at almost 22 months of age.

I will come in to visit, probably in July after things settle down a bit with the new baby. It will be great to see both of my grandchildren then.

It was just ten years ago that our daughter and her husband graduated from college. They married eight years ago and have done well in their careers and are excellent parents.

Both sets of grandparents are proud of them and it is cool for Sherry and I to have an expanded set of family at this stage of our lives.
