Daughter drove Son, Wife, and Baby across the miles to spend the afternoon of Independence Day with Fiorella and Husband, and we were thrilled, not just because they came to see us, but because we got to know Baby a little better. It's important to us to be part of the life of our granddaughter, the one-half of us that will survive. It's important to her too because species-wise, offspring are safer in an extended family unit.
(Sorry to be running so late. Fio wrote the above paragraph last night, but forgot to specify when she wanted it posted.)
