Laura and my son, Alex
This is my first "granddog", Taffy...not at all a ferocious pitbull
Recently, Laura went shopping for her wedding dress and invited me to go along with her mom and maid of honor on the shopping expedition. "Since you have three boys, I'm not sure you will have that opportunity." I was so touched and honored to be included and, just like her mother, my eyes were filled with tears as she tried on gown after gown, looking radiant and beautiful in each one.

Me with Christine, Laura's mother - we hit it off right from the start - she is a nurse, too
I have two other sons so there is even a possibility that I might acquire two more daughters-in-law to help even out the unbalanced male to female ratio in our household. If the other boys choose as well as Alex did, our family has got it made!
My other granddog, Bucky
My oldest son, Shawn Smith....38, with no marriage prospects yet!!!
