    Ii's a girl

    No details as It has only just happened. But I now have a riding mate who won't argue back on the distance I do - or don't do- on a sunday. Its a girl and is my first Grand child.

    Already have the first bike sorted- in fact its already in the shed. Just have to wait for her to be able to reach the pedals as standover height may be a bit big right now.

    Now off to tell the neighbours- so Might not be riding tomorrow as I am taking the 25 yr old Cognac with me.

    Like it has been said, If most of us would have know how much fun having grandchildren is we would have bypassed their parents.

    Congrats on the good news.

    You might want to brush up on your lullabies and cradle rockin' before you spend too much time on her bike.

    My prediction is that she'll have him wrapped about her little finger within the first fifteen seconds of him first holding her. It'll take her that long to decide if he is worthy of her. Congratulations Grandfather.

    Woo hoo Gramps! I love calling you that, as it seemed I aged 10 years when my boys officially got to call me Grandma.

    You get to take them for a ride, feed them sugar and then send them home.

    Belated Congratulations. We just got back from a snowboard week-end where our function was to take care of our 4 month old grandson so his mom could snowboard for the first time this season. I got a chance to log more of my "million kisses" before his 2nd birthday. Best wishes to everyone.
