Our niece Amanda and her son Dane are visiting her mother (Bob's sister Della) in Mexico Beach for a few weeks. Bob went down Saturday to have a guys day out with Dane.
In a way this was a homage to his father. They had planned to have a guy's day last Christmas and take Dane to the Air Force Armament museum--but we lost his father before Christmas. So Bob and Dane had the trip. They went to the museum, played some goofy golf, and then found a small carnival where Dane could play in a ball in the water.
They had a great day together. Bob did make the comment that any middle-aged man having a mid-life crisis should spend a day with a 7-year-old before marrying that young trophy wife. There is, he said, much to be said about a nice middle-aged, unfertile woman :-)
It's been about 10 days now since I got the little squirrel. She's almost twice the size (almost an ounce now), has tiny whiskers and is starting to consider growing some fur. In this picture she had just finished eating and promptly fell asleep.
