|awww... these two look more than ready... mine were mere babes in arms, I'm sure! :)) An anxious and weepy time for carers, but a brave new world for these young guns anxious to flit the nest... and so it continues... May they live, love and learn staying always safe and well. xx|

|Anna surely has her finger on the pulse this time around. Bet your grand kids will always treasure this one, Rose. I know mine have always gotten excited when a poem about them appears in one of my books.
This one is definitely a keeper. Thanks Dick
