Years ago, I recall older folks teasing my generation when they’d learn we were expecting an addition to the family:  “Ah, y’all are gonna have another tricycle motor in the household.”

I always thought that was a corny metaphor.

But when I played with granddaughter Payton “Elizabuff” doing this driveway routine this afternoon, I couldn’t help but think “tricycle motor” is an apt label.

The whole time I was tracking her with the iphone cam, she kept calling out “Papa,” but I couldn’t tell “Papa what.”  But she sure was cute!
