........guys, your humble poster and Mrs. Strike are pleased beyond all measure to announce here what what we have been sharing with friends and family all week. And that is the arrival of our first grandchild, a girl,born last Sunday nite. Mommy, Daddy and baby are ALL doing well.She came in at 6lbs, 5ozs, and G-Ma and Pa-Pa can't stop looking at photos and videos of this bundle of joy.
Many of you will recall that when I first started posting on this forum - and for sometime simultaneously on the old meacfans forum - I would routinely refer to my daughter as "sweet and precious, Ms. Strike". Well, she's all grown up, a full-fledged millenial, and now a mommy. Ms. Strike is an only child. And for the overwhelming majority of her life, I have lovingly personally referred to her as "the baby". So now with the arrival of her daughter, I am distinguishing the two as Baby I and Baby II.
While neither Mrs. Strike nor your humble poster is interested in spending our lives in anyone's rocking chair doting on this baby, her birth really does give NEW meaning to our lives.
Guys its true...........Jesus REALLY DOES love the little children of the world.
