After exactly five minutes dad's younger brother, an exact replica of him, (he lived with us then), also made his way out holding on to his bicycle.

The front gate was shut again with a clang; the little fellow seated in front of me looked up at me with wide eyed wonder and asked ever so sweetly, "Aunty, you have two-two fathers?"
