Playing in the Universe

Stellar Granddaughter!

Sophie skips along the rings of Saturn chasing the small moon, Epimetheus, while big orange Titan hangs in the background! Careful! Don't step in the ring gap, Sophie!
She lives among the stars. Maybe Grandpa can show her some day.

Happy Chocolate!

Life is Good

What's better than a kid licking chocolate icing? My granddaughter, Sophie, had fun on a recent visit.
Playing the chocolate flute!
Is anything on my face?
Who cares about my face?
After the chocolate orgy there's cozy quiet time to read with Grandma while Dude hangs close in case some small bit of attention comes in his direction.
Sophie looks almost ready to read by herself!

People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
When I say that I'm o.k. well they look at me kind of strange
Surely you're not happy now you no longer play the game

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go
