My daughter in law gave birth this am at about 4:41 to our first grandchild..
A healthy boy.[Thank You Lord]..
at 58 almost 59, and my wife at 59,almost 60, and with 4 sons up to 35 years of age, this should have happened 10 years ago, but it is what it is.. My 2 oldest are highly accomplished, and a family meant nothing to them.. careers did, but that their business of course... I thought I would never see a grand child, but I held him today, and thankfully he is perfect.. I think about those young parents that aren't as lucky, and have babies with major problems. Thats what was going through my head a lot as I held my new grandson.. anyway, its been a good day..
I made some really nice sausage and peppers when we got home from the hospital... I make it a bit different, I cook the sausage very well, slice it up, and add the peppers and onions and saute them in the drippings until they are quite soft, and then make a gravy with some flour and water, so it can be served over rice, or in a nice drippy sandwich of course, on good stout Italian bread...
I will think about the day as the bride of my youth and I eat together..
it was a good day, and one I waited for for many years.. Now I must contemplate- I must envision as many devious ways as possible to spoil this little one rotten.. I need to start looking at small baseball gloves and bats.. Oh yeah, and fishing rods for little hands.. and little kid type 4 PFD's for the boat. and...... well, you know......bob
