So much has happened since my last post that I hardly know where best to begin, and I feel that an explanation is in order. I must take a (hopefully) brief leave of absence from my chronicle of my farewell to the rather-rapidly fading autumn to share with you my joy in my welcoming the arrival, last Saturday, of CD, Squiddy, the Pebbles, and the Elf (our new granddaughter). This has been my first chance to meet her in person; hitherto it’s all been photos and the occasional video-chat. I will be posting more in the near future but, in the meantime, this is the reason why I have been so slow in responding to all of your new posts. I think you’ll understand…

Congratulations! Is a grandchild not the greatest joy? She is gorgeous!
Big 2 thumbs up to understanding…enjoy…. we will all be here whenever you get back!!!!
My wife and I have always said that if we had known that Grandchildren were so much fun we would have had them in the first place! Only joking but I bet you know what I mean. She looks lovelly and contented.
Congratulations to you and your family, Gary. :)
No need for explanations–the pictures tell it all.
Three words – she is perfect!! Congrats Gary, and I especially love the shot of you and her sitting in front of the fireplace watching the fire. That is precious :).
