Birthdays and Little kids

Being of an age there are children out there that call me granddad. And coincidentally two of them have birthdays within a day of each other even though they were born 10 years apart and half a continent away from each other.

This year I was in Grand Forks and the youngest had her 1st birthday party.

This is her dancing.

She also got her first taste of Sugar … notice how gingerly she treats the cake. She was quite ‘nice to it’ for a while … until she found the chocolate innards that is 🙂

She really enjoyed herself and being the centre of attention didn’t hurt at all 🙂

Most things I do involve computers. Nowadays that sounds stupid to hear because everyone uses computers. Except I was saying that before the IBM PC came on the scene. (hint: my first programs were entered on punch cards in an IBM-29) Now I mostly use them. Mostly to provide a community service in my small town. Because I could when it was asked and still can. And I'm a wannabe writer. Various books in various states of incompleteness. A few short stories. Might do more of that.
