A Matter of Scale

One picture tells a thousand words.

My daughter’s twins were born prematurely a few days ago.  The baby boys and my daughter are doing fine.

The finger belongs to my son in law.  The little fella weighs 3 lbs.

On being a grandparent

Forget steam engines, Teslas, CNC, lathes.

At 65 times around Sol, the best thing in life is being a grandparent.  If you are a grandparent, you will understand.

Currently grandfather to John, my future apprentice, I am soon to become grandparent to a baby girl, whose name I know because little John told me, but I am not yet at liberty to disclose.

And…..   I have permission to disclose…..    also soon to become grandparent to identical twin boys.    More baby Johns!  Maybe with different names..

Identical twins!   I was an obstetrician/gynaecologist in my former life.   Identical twins! Pretty scarey.  But fascinating.  And wonderful.  One of my unfulfilled wishes was to be father to twins.  So I am to be a grandfather to twins.   Be careful what you wish for….   do I hear….  watch this space.  excited +++.
