  • Having two of my grandsons for the weekend meant a couple of sure-things. 1. A trip to the library to see the guinea pigs and gerbils and get books and videos. 2. fights for who would be "in the middle" while reading books. This sleep-over also meant photos. I got a new lens and wanted to use it. I guess I took one photo too many and Robert was done with me. He gave me a growl shot after I sneaked up on him. He doesn't have a lot of control over his life. He's only 5, but he can keep me from getting a good shot. Little does he know that I love this photo that tells much more about him than the rest of the ones I sneaked.
