  Congratulations, Bob. My first arrived first arrived last Saturday. Considering that my wife and I have five children between us, and that the youngest is 35, you'd have to say that they're late starters - or doing something wrong!

Hope you and he have a great time, Bob.

At the moment Lyn and I are in seventh heaven as we have our 3 year old grandson visiting (with his parents). As he lives in the Commonwealth of Dominica we seldom see him so you can imagine that we are spoiling him rotten!

Congratulations, Bob. As the old saying goes, grandchildren are wonderful - because you can spoil them rotten, then hand them back to their parents O0

I have 7 ranging in age from 5 to 18.

 :-)) Congratulations, Bob! I have seven aged from one to twenty! The 7yrs, and 4yrs join me in my workshop ........ the 7y old mad keen on boats! Cool!
A friend of mine remembered a grandfather some thirty odd years ago who laughed and called his three grandsons
"Pander, Bleddy, Monium, myansum!"
My mother used to end a visit wih
"Ottee makee, Ottee takee!"
Grandchildren are a real joy! ......................... particularly if they are into boats!  ;)
