Only 4!

No wonder they didn't tell me. What I can't imagine is how they got Cole to keep his little trap shut. He rats out everybody. Cole is my only great-grandson. He's 4 going on 13---at least. His parents are the best a kid could wish for---or I thought they were until they pulled this stunt.

The family pretty much accepts that I have a "thing" about safety. In fact they're really sick of hearing about all the terrible things that are likely (if not certain) to befall anybody who takes chances of any kind. I guess that's why they didn't tell me that Cole was being allowed to fly ALONE to see his Cessie Sarah in NYC. ALONE! You heard me right. ALONE!

But he did. He flew all by himself---and he's only 4! Now it's true he came back in one piece with no visible scars but what terrifying psychological trauma he's suffered, GD only knows. And I, me, of course I know---but everybody else just says, "Pooh!"

But it's too late to do anything about it now except to bring it up whenever possible. Oh, these kids!

PS Have You visited Larry Olaf? I know you don't want to hurt his feelings...
