    And I am even more impressed with her. I am in no hurry, but she would be a great mom for my grandkids. I can wait six or seven years. I am in no hurry, and I hope they can too. (This is his first involvement, and he is only sixteen, and she is just 15)

    My boy insists that she is not his girlfriend, but they think in very good harmony, and he is clearly besotted by her. At the same time, he is not testosterone poisoned into stupid behavior.

    Anyway, she seems eminently sensible, easy going and intelligent. She is not glamorous. And this being Oregon in November, I can't tell much of her figure, but I think it is pretty slim.

    She said she has lots of books. They could be complete collections of Harlequin romances, but given her general level of sensibility and look of intelligence, I doubt it. I am pretty sure there is a lot of science fiction, as my boy has been talking of some new authors he likes that 'a friend' recently introduced him to. I wonder if I can interest her in some Mark Twain and HL Mencken........?

    My boy has crossed into an age that is scary and amazing. He is learning to drive (he makes really wide right turns still, and likes to drive really close to the right hand side of the road.) Each step he makes into maturity is a bit of a thrill and a bit of a fright. I just hope he keeps going the way he has been. It has been fun. But every step has its consequences.

    As a former 16 year old in love with a former 15 year old... I don't think they're thinking of what you're thinking.

    I am pretty sure you are right. They are both to smart for that.


    Or at least I hope so.

    But male and female are male and female. Your brains aren't always in charge of that situation.

    At that age we gentlemen don't often think with the rational head, but the emotional one. :D

    Fear not, Baruch, like most young men of his age, he's simply formulating his plan of attack. He'll be up to his nuts in guts in no time.

    Congratulations, Baruch. Sounds like your boy has good taste. A pattern that hopefully continues.

    I wouldn't be counting those grandbabies before they're hatched though. ;)

    My sons have excellent taste in females. Their girlfriends almost always make them better students and a hell of a lot easier to get along with. That's wonderful news Baruch.

    The good news is that their thoughts lead to what the parents were thinking, though probably not intentionally.
