Hook, Line, and Sinker--A Day at the National Aquarium

Jennifer, Rhia, and Jerry ________________________ Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children. --Alex Haley Jerry and I spent the day at the National Aquarium in Baltimore with our granddaughter Rhia. What fun! We saw sharks, dolphins, jellyfish, and a rain forest, among other sights. We saw Dora the Explorer and her friend Diego in a 4-D adventure film, the 4th dimension having to do with smells, vibrations, and splashing water on the audience, which Rhia did not appreciate. Her exact words: "This is NOT acceptable!" Ease up, sweetie. It's just water... But, overall, it was great fun, and by day's end everyone was duly worn out. The hook, line, and sinker of the day: we actually bought the above photograph along with an entire photo package, no doubt overpriced. Gotcha! How can you say "no" when the photo includes your precious grand baby? Later!
