Earlier tonight Cindy and I treated her parents, my daughter AnnMarie and her son Mikey and Cindy’s daughter Amber and her daughter Abby to dinner at Cracker Barrel. We had a great time and my grandson Mikey sat across from me as we dined and we had good conversation with each other. He’s 12 ½ now and growing up so very fast.
Afterward, we went outside on the “porch” and Abby, who is 4, asked me if I would play checkers with her at the oversized checker board, so we did. We had fun and Abby won (of course). The main thing about this photo is that it makes it obvious to me that I should shave off the beard and go back to just the goatee.
