Love, Babe

         Why I'm Babe -- Abigail was the first grandchild to call me Baba.   Then back in the 1980s, when her folks bought a home computer, she tried writing me a letter and printing it out, and added an apologetic p. s. –“I’m sorry but there's a  spell-checker and it changed your name to Babe.” 
        It does come in handy.  For some reason it feels awkward to sign a greeting card as  “Mother” or “Grandmother” so “Babe” works just fine.

  1. And here I was thinking that "Babe" was what everyone called you after seeing some of those late 1940s "glamor girl" photos of you!

    Happy New Year!
