Who had this photo in mind as they watched her walk up to the podium to receive her college degree last month? The transformation of babies to young adults is rewarding but bittersweet. Time marches on at a very fast rate. Searching through stuff, cleaning closets, found this frame that contains my oldest grandson, the firefighter, and his sister, on her way to be a doctor.
I also see Bird, the menace we had thrust upon us after he was out of control in a young children household. He was cute, mean and intelligent, knew over thirty phrases and whistled the Barber of Seville. He had a three year old personality and was for the most part entertaining.
