Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.

An awful lot of librarians, particularly library directors, it seems, have no children. They do tend to be married but their world is all full of travel and art and music. Once, sitting around a table at some library function, one of my colleagues turned to me and asked “do you have any children?” and I answered “Yes. I have One Precious Angel Baby Darling Only Son”

That just slipped out - it wasn’t premeditated humor nor was it as sick as it sounds. He’s not my Norman Bates. He just turned out to be the only child out of four I could carry full term. And, as a girlfriend once said “he’s the most emotionally healthy person I’ve ever met”. He really is a darling and has made the past 29 years not just rich, but enormously fun. It would be my wish that every set of parents in the world could have such a fun person in their lives. He is a decided improvement upon the parents, both in temperament and in probably every other aspect in life - short of music or dancing. Child of two musicians, he has neither tone nor rhythm. He needed neither.

What he does have, now is a beautiful fiancee. The past two weeks, since they told us about their engagement, I have had to write all sorts of uninteresting, unimportant things in this blog when I’ve wanted to shout


So - now they are ready to make the news public, there’s no need to send announcements or put it in the paper. I can spread it all over the world.
