    1999 Austria / London / Munich: Isaac meets his great-grandmother

    In German, the word “oma” means grandmother; “uhr-oma” means great-grandmother. Because “uhr” also means clock, some kids use the pun term “tick tock oma” instead. I call my oma just that, Oma, never by her given name, Marga.

    After arriving at the alpine guest-house, we toss our bags into our room and head up to my Mom’s room, where Isaac finally meets his uhr-oma. At least I get the first kiss.

    Then it’s a gaze across four generations.

    Mom arrives, and Isaac gets a chance to mull over these new faces.

    After a time Isaac and

    size each other up.

    It’s been a long day, and a long flight, and we want to get Isaac off jet lag and onto local time. So we play and play until he’s sleepy. Then it’s off to bed.

    Have you found errors nontrivial or marginal, factual, analytical and illogical, arithmetical, temporal, or even typographical? Please let me know; drop me . Thanks!
