Happy Birth Day Lucy!

"Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind."
Kurt Vonnegut

Lucy finally arrived tonight - nearly 2 weeks late. She weighed in at 7 lbs. 3 oz. and is 21" long, and reportedly has big feet and a lot of hair. Lucy already has a chocolate birthday cake. I'll begin her political indoctrination on Thursday.

I can't wait to meet my first and only grandchild! This is an unexpected joy in a long, dark year.

Congratulations to you Susan. And yes, 2009 has not been a good year. Seems so for everyone, so sorry. Happy this shining arrival will lighten up your spirits, all best.
