ROW80-3 03/07/19 Babysitting?

My grandson is here days this week, but as he's 11 I suppose it's not really babysitting. It's more like hanging out.  We're doing a bit of gardening together, which he discovered he likes, and he's also streaming on my Twitch link for a bit every afternoon. He's big on video games, of course.
