Grandma

I'm thinking from the wrinkles that this is Grandma, and Grandpa took the picture of three of his favorite pas=times--grandson, baseball and Grandma. You've got to appreciate a woman who is tough enough to play baseball in heels and a dress, and five will get you ten she's also smart enough to know where little boys will swing that bat.

Got it--given the cuteness on all fronts, I still hope Grandpa got to see and enjoy it.
