The Chronicle of Charlie

To Charlie I am "Lolo" — a sort of honorary grandfather for many years, and now a step-grandfather. I have also taken on the role of his chronicler — at least
until he reaches the age when he is embarrassed by all this. The rows in this gallery are in chronological order, the earliest — "Day One" — at the bottom.
