This afternoon I marched 7 children into our favorite pizza joint for cheese pizza. The children quickly found two tables and sat down to wait as I ordered their lunch. A lone diner asked the inevitable question, "Are they all yours?" To which I replied with my usual smile, "All but one." Our questioner then gave me the thumbs up sign along with a huge grin. Later he approached our table and volunteered he had 6 children of his own and 7 grandchildren. He then proudly said, "They give you gray hair, but they keep you young." Thumbs up!
