Congrats, Ursula. Hope all goes well.

The little darling will of course call you Omi Ushi for quite some time (perhaps
forever), so get to like it. And the adults, according with transcendental laws
of mimicry, will follow suit.

One more grump: Not being believed by children when you tell them there was a
time when the Monopoly game had no electronic banking.  Bank cards, would you
believe.  Pass Go, $400 (inflation) is deposited electronically into your bank
account. Bah, humbug! 

Never giving up his bank book and needing to see the whites of a bank clerk's
eyes when transacting,
