My grandchildren that live with me have been gone and last night they returned for a weekend visit. I thought that I was really enjoying the peace and quiet, but this morning, my little man Max came in my room with a giant smile and a big hug for me. Well, it doesn't get any better than this, a little while later Samuel, my other grandson came in and his smile was so big that a glow radiated around him. All this before I even get out of bed. I have to be the luckiest person in the world.

I have so much to do today to get ready for my 35Th class reunion, but first I have to work, and I want to get off early to help my friend Shelah at the food co-op, because she works so hard for me, I am just not doing my job as her friend. I still need to get my nails done and do all the other things to try to make this old body look good, it might be impossible without plastic surgery. I am not complaining, I really have earned every wrinkle on my brow, and from smiling all the time I have permanent smile wrinkles. Hi, Ho, Hi, Ho, it's off to work I go.

    I can share the similar experiences from a different point of view. My father (Cappy's first ex husband) is staying at my house for the 35th reunion. This morning the old man was excited about being with my children that he woke early to spend time with them and get them ready for school. We all then got in the car and went off Dunkin Donuts for a some morning treats. Grandchildren, how they do make my parents smile.
