He must be a surveyer." Three year old Ollie looked at me indulgently, and said, "Actually, that's a transit level." Oh, my adorable, smart little grandson is growing up so fast! Turns out, Ollie works with his dad on their property most days, and transit levels are regular tools that his dad uses. When I told Damian that Ollie had said that, he said, "That's my boy!
