Announcement........................................................ I have my first Grandchild

I have just heard some wonderful news... I have become a Grandad for the first time.
My son Craig and his lovely wife Eleanor have a son... Arthur Charles who was born at 9.48 this morning and weighed in at 8lbs 7oz

It's a tradition in my family to wet the babies head with a drink... well if not I am starting one.
If I have my way the little feller will soon be enjoying the countryside and wildlife.
Me?.... chuffed to bits.

Ahhh, the page has turned and you will step into a wonderland you never dreamed of. It is like your first child only you can spoil without consequences, you can teach for fun not purpose, you can love up close and at a distance. What a wonderful time you will have ... Congratulations to you and your family.

Congratulations, Grandma....My first grandchild turns 21 on Friday. For some reason he spouted out "Baga" when he started talking and it stuck. I am still Baga at 73. I can still remember my daughter and her husband bringing him home from the hospital. genie
