Grampa’s here

Dear readers, I promise this plethora of baby pictures will end soon; my brain will return and life will go on. But for now – here are some more. My dear ex came to town today, is staying here at the house till Sunday. He went directly from the airport to Anna’s to visit his new grandson, one week old today, and his old one, who has just learned to ride a two-wheeler without training wheels, fast, up and down the alley. Spectacular. Uncle Sam, aka Stinkbutt, came over too. 
We may not be an ordinary family – after all, he and I have been divorced for 25 years – but we sure felt like one today.
