Fathers' Day

I owe 243 of you per day an apology. No one has sent me any troubling or worrying news all week. I am not mad at anyone or anything. The result is that I have not made a single post for seven days. The statistics report I receive every Sunday now tells me that, on average, 243 persons per day visited this site last week. You would have been disappointed that I had nothing new to complain about. I am sorry. I apologise. I can only hope someone or something will upset me soon.

Meanwhile, it is fathers' day. My latest grandchildren are growing healthy and strong. Their mother is teaching them well. Here are a couple of photos of the entire family. The father is the pretty one.

Was it not Sir Francis Bacon who said, “He that marryeth and hath children giveth hostages to fortune”?


  1. And written by Lois Bujold: "Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them is surely damnation."

  2. My wife and I love children, as long as we can give them back to their parents in a couple of days! - Scotty
