    Any minute now...

    I will become a second time grandfather! My lovely, beautiful, intelligent daughter Hilary was due yesterday, so we are all on tenterhooks waiting for the phone call. We know it's a boy, we've all made our bets on the weight, but we are not sure what he is going to be called. Probably Francis (Grandfather) or James (Father) but they may stick me in as a middle name (not Roger for God's sake, but they can have Norman.) Watch this space for news as it happens.
    Cheers,
    Roger

    Nothing like being a grandparent. I read somewhere that is our reward for putting up with our kids through their teenage years!

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
