First grandchild just turned 2 months old. At 63 I was beginning to think we'd never have any. Younger generation doesn't seem to be in a hurry to have families anymore.

Zero kids, zero grandchildren. No, I don't regret having a vasectomy. I would need to acquire a much more positive outlook on society to want to bring a child into this world. For those of you who have such an outlook, I wish you well.

I will leave you all to guess.

Hint: I have no children, and never have.

Two sons; elder one has two sons, aged 2-1/2 and almost 5.

Neighborhood Fourth of July parade, 2019, with the literal girl next door, whose grandpa was my boss at UCSD Extension awhile back. "It's a small world after all ... "
