My dad took off late yesterday afternoon for Switzerland. My niece lives there with her husband & they just had a baby boy. My baby bro & sister in law are grandparents for the first time & elated. Dad, baby bro & sister in law took off from O'Hare yesterday afternoon. Dad is off to meet his 7th great grandchild & delighted beyond reason. He was so nervous he called me with his list 3 times over the weekend. He left room for baby presents in his suitcase as we were sending all sorts of stuff along for Gabriel Antonio. I'm so glad Dad is able to make this trip. He had hip replacement surgery so he could climb the Alps & yodel (that's his story & he's sticking to it ) Dad's doing great!
