     Grandchildren have been one of the best blessings God has given me. Last night I made reservations for Caedmon (Buddy) to fly to San Antonio for 3 weeks this summer. Being only 11, I must pay an additional fee for an "accompanied minor." Delta now charges an additional $100 each way to permit Buddy to fly by himself. It would have only cost $50 to check him as luggage. In the final analysis, he's worth it!
     Here is a picture of Art Snow new granddaughter, Chloe Otto, born yesterday in Zug, Switzerland to Sarah and Eric Otto. Lucky Joan, Art's wife and now also a grandmother, got to be present for the birth.

     Yesterday was the first red meat on my diet. The first potatoes, with the exception of a few chips. The first banana cream pie, albeit just a bite. And, there was a small amount of butter used in toasting the almonds. Oh yeah, there was a very tiny piece of French Bread — very tiny and no butter.

     Tomorrow morning I expect the scale to give me the good news I deserve for the control I have exercised today. 

     My overall grade for today: A

     How did you do?
