I don't know if I mentioned before that we are expecting the arrival of our third grandchild in about three months. Thanks to the miracles of modern ultrasound technology, the parents have been informed that it's a boy. According to my niece in Australia who is in the business of using miscellaneous radiations to look inside people's bodies, the sexing of babies by this method depends on being able too see the appropriate boy bits. If they can't see the necessary male paraphernalia with the ultrasound, they can't really determine the gender. But if they can see the usual boy bits, they know it's a boy.
I'm not entirely convinced of the accuracy of this technology, but my daughter-in-law is. This week she even went shopping for clothes for her future son. She obviously agrees with me about how important it is to indoctrinate children in all things nautical from an early age. Which is why I heartily approve of the "It's a Buoy" garment in the photo. Even if it turns out to be a Guirl.
