A lovely tribute Panagiota, just saw the comments, I've used my wife's iPad to put pics on and hers is an old one. Tom

Mine is the very first version...made in the 17th century. Maybe it does work, but my keyboard went nuts when I tried the features once I became a Premium Member. I can't use it on my version far as I know. It comes with a drawbridge.))) Panagiota

A great tribute to your daughter, Pan! You reared her well that's for sure. Thanks for you comment re Barking Mutts. Its not as bad as I portrayed in the write - at least they take them in at nite. I'm neither fond of dogs or the jerks who don't control them. That's why I have a docile, well-behaved cat named Jeff. You are indeed fortunate to live in an area where you don't have to tolerate such inconsiderate people! Take good care - Bob

Happy Saturday! So glad to hear from you. Panagiota. Thank you

Panagiota, I like this poem. What a special moment in a life it is. You stand witness to them grow from favorite blankies, Barney, and patty-cakes, watch them learn to laugh, and love, and even cry, when they make mistakes. Their heart all the better for the journey, they fly.., though you feel your own breaking when they wave good-bye. -Richard

She was married one month after 9/11. My grandson is equally wonderful. And a fantastic dense of them tremendously. Thank you, good week ahead for you,Panagiota
