The mom in this picture (on the left) is Sahra, daughter of oft-mentioned Bob and sister to Si, he of De Colores Bookstore in Olympia. That’s David, Sahra’s husband, on the right. And sandwiched between them, loveliest of all, is Vivian, their daughter.
If you haven’t figured this out yet, that makes Vivian Bob’s granddaughter. And that makes me a little jealous of him and a lot excited for him. Bob has a granddaughter, one who will soon be two. And, to top it off, Vivian has a sibling due in February.
I’ve long told people, those willing to listen or pay attention, that my lone ambition in life is to be a grandfather. That’s a lot of pressure to put on my kids, I know, so I tell them I’m in no hurry to have my ambition filled.
But seeing Vivian today, who came (along with her folks) for an afternoon visit at our house, certainly got me thinking about it again.
That Bob. He’s a lucky guy.
