Thirteen years ago...

It was thirteen years ago that I held our first two granddaughters in my arms. They were scheduled to be born three days apart, but Chloe decided to be a preemie. Therefore, they are seven weeks apart. When they were both six years old for some strange reason I told them that when they were thirteen Nonny and I would take them to London. Talk about scary! Last year they reminded me that they would be thirteen in Jan/Feb 2009. Always desiring to be a man of my word we are now scheduled to leave next month for ten days in London. I am already tired and we haven't even left yet. But I am sure Preacher's Wife will whip me into shape and keep me moving forward.

Wow! How do I say this and make it sound like a compliment . . . . you look so young in this picture! Did that sound like the compliment it was intended to be?

What a great grandpa you are!!! Wish I could go in your suitcase. I have never been to England. Have a great trip and tell those gals to have a great birthday.
