Yes, congrats on the grandkid - now you can watch her grow up until she's old enough to play in the garden - and then you can tell her to GET OFF MY LAWN!!! Toast

Thanks for everyone's support and best wishes. Gracie is home now, managed to nip to the hospital on Saturday for a little cuddle.

It was quite strange watching peoples perceptions shift a little when they realised that grumpy old men may just have been single parents too. Mind, you never stop learning...I learned to use facetube as I quickly realised it was going to be the only way, as grandparents, that we found anything out at the same time as everyone else. Note to the youngsters...phone your parents before posting on tubeface!

One of the great joys of Grand parenting is being able to give the little buggers back to the parents come nappy changing time, so it will be business as usual at Chez Dylly... well I have found two new projects...the first...

after being made to go to the gym by the GP I've found that I quite enjoy it...in fact I look forward to my daily workout, then laps of the pool followed by steam and sauna...Already lost half a stone! Trim Dylly.

Unfortunately I have the 'hairy old geezer' syndrome...and after several comments from my other half about 'old hairy blokes at the gym' I'm considering getting the back waxed at least. Hairy Dylly.

The second project is refurbishing 'Merry Legs'. Merry Legs (my favourite book as a kid) was a merry go round horse who wanted to be a real horse...and was the name I gave to my rocking horse. Now after being passed around many generations of the family merry legs is back with me and ready for a good clean up, so I'm starting to prep the plastic body work for a respray and hand painting details, rub down and respray the metal rockers, weld up and replace the stirrups, restitch the leather saddle my Dad made for him, make a new leather bridle and generally make sure everything is safe and sound for Gracie. Note to self...remove first wife's bra used for blinkers before current Mrs starts asking questions. Cross dressing Dylly Whaaaaa?

She's perfect. Should we expect a Muvizu model of her any time soon?

Please pass on my best wishes to the mother.

Congratulations.
