Sunday, June 19


This is my son Joe's boy -- my second grandson, Austin Burgess Higgins.

Austin is 6 1/2 months old.

He's the perfect baby -- cute as punch, perpetually happy, and pure joy for his parents, Krissy and Joe.

I recently visited family in Kentucky and got to spend three days at Joe's and Krissy's home "bonding" with my newest grandson, and the memories of those wonderful moments together are a source of real joy for me today.

I'm very proud of my two sons and two grandsons, and feel very blessed. As my sons were for me when they were little years ago, Matthew and Austin have become my "little men." They'll carry on the name; they'll be my immortality.

Grandpa Higgins loves you, Austin!
