These are the adventures of the eldership de-Intimidator whose mission it is to explore new ways to use time, to deal with diminishing capabilities and to boldly go where most of us have been or will be going (cue Star Next Gen theme). Staring de-I has Captain Jean Luc Picard, Wife as Dr. Beverly Crusher, Daughter #1 as Q, Daughter #2 as Tasha Yar, and Daughter #3 as Dr. Leonard McCoy (can't have too many MDs on an eldership!!!)

Not Quite The Baby Whisperer
I got to go out to Washington DC and meet the newest addition to the de-I clan and catch up with the entire Pulandia clan. I lucked out with the weather (they got another snow dump just 24 hours after I left).

2.2 is not much for talking with Grandpa
BUT she will text...a lot
Here she is with me while we text to each other
And of course there is the quality time that comes from 2.2 and 2.3 simultaneously plopping themselves down and showing you their video games (Mine Craft in this case). 2.3 is particularly insistent that you pay close attention while he shows you all the things he's doing at breakneck speed.
