    Awwwww… although I thought you’d also include a picture of your latest arachnid brood.

    And now, Grasshopper, you begin to learn how to be a grandfather.

    We just saw Elder Mancub off to the Air Force. He leaves his young bride nearby, close to two families. Because we need to be close by and so does she.

    Ere long, I skry, I’ll begin to learn how to be a great grandfather.

    The beginning of learning is often the sweetest part. Enjoy, PZ.

    She is a cutie but I was expecting spiders.
    Your grandson looks a bit like he’s saying, “Who is this strange man who has just kidnapped me?”

    Great shots.

    I too was expecting spiders.

    You’ve been extremely effective in cultivating your reputation, PZ.

    Wonder if there’s some evolutionary reason why sleeping babies always draw my eye: almost can’t take my eyes off them. If there’s a sleeping adult nearby, it’s a high probability that they’re its parent. And probably exhausted.

    I also love it that PZ is beginning to learn to be a grandfather. Our oldest grandson is over 19 years old, and I also wonder whether we will be learning to be great-grandparents ere long. He’s bringing his girlfriend to the grandparents’ house for a late Thanksgiving meal in two weeks. Makes me wonder if he’s serious about this young lady. Since his mother lives in another state, I’ll be checking her out for the rest of the family.
    We now have five adult children, five significant others and eight grandchildren. I suppose it will soon be time to think about great-grands!
    And PZ – All of your babies are lovely!
