Grandfatherhood

Grandfatherhood, is that even a word?

My son and daughter in law welcomed their first child, and Ms, Duck and I our first grandchild, last Tuesday.

Little duckling Emerson joined the flock and we are thrilled!

At 62, I'm a little late to this grandfather gig, but I plan on making up for lost time. :)
