Baby's first pint of beer
The first pint that grand-daughter has ever professionally pulled on her first night as a new barmaid in my favourite pub - tonight - and I made absolutely sure that she poured it for me. That's her in the background.
It seems only a little while since I used to bring her in here as a 4 year-old, sitting her on my knee and taking care of her, and now - bless her - she is doing her bit to make sure that the old man wants for nothing, but this time she is getting paid for it.
You are witnessing history in the making, and the tear that springs in my eye has nothing to do with alcohol - honest. No really, honest to God (sob...).
