A family gathering for 71st birthday

My eldest brother P who lives mostly in Melbourne had a belated birthday bash tonight, organised by his wife and children to mark his turning 71..

It was also to introduce his latest grandchild, a baby girl, who, together with his other grandchildren and another brother’s grandchildren bring the number of fourth generation Tans in my extended family to 10.

As there are still another 10 grandchildren — ie my nieces and nehphews — who are yet to marry or if married, are yet to have kids, then chances are that the group of  fourth generation Tans will expand further. In another 10 years, this fourth generation may be 20 strong at least!

My late father would be pleased. Because he fathered just 9 children with three wives!
