From the Publisher's desk: About children, vacations and the World Cup

Granddaughter Kayla and son Dana.
Last week Rick and I were invited to a special family dinner Wed­nes­day night. My granddaughter Kayla was on her very first camp­­­ing trip at Ump­qua Lighthouse State Park and we joined her for a barbecue at her parents’ campfire. It was so relaxing to take a mid-week hiatus from work and even better to be able to cuddle up with my grand­daughter and visit with my son and daughter-in-law.

Dana and Holly shared a video from their prior day’s trip to the West Coast Game Park Safari south of Bandon, a place I took Dana often when he was younger. Give me time to go through some boxes and I can produce photos of Dana petting bear cubs, baby albino skunks and infant ferrets. Last week my baby took his baby and waited in line to be among the few who sat inside the nursery with a pair of baby lions.  One sucked on a bottle while the other chewed Dana’s shoe.  Kayla watched.

Wednesday evening, in our room at the Winchester Bay Motel, I heard that Spain and the Netherlands would be play­ing in the finals of the World Cup. I’ve been a soccer fan since my boys stood on the field confused and easily distracted when they were only 5 or 6, but I don’t watch the World Cup anymore.
