Point of Personal Privilege by Terry Burns

What is the point of having a blog if you can't use it as a platform to brag on a new great-grandson?

Pictured is Ethan with the new mom, our granddaughter Kasey. He was born Sunday, Aptil 15th, and arrived just in time for lunch. We rushed down to Dallas from Amarillo but arrived just minutes too late. (I forgot my phone and had to turn around and get it since I use it to connect my computer when we are on the road) Those extra minutes would have made the difference. No problem, I figure Saundra will forgive me in a year or two. I've been doing penance by dog-sitting our two dogs and their four dogs (and working) while Saundra is next door with the baby and young family. Maybe that will help.

The young man weighed in at 8 lb 9 oz and was 20.25 inches long. He's a looker, and going through family pictures they found a picture of Kasey at five days old. You could practically trade out the pictures they were so much alike.

About time for us to return home, but first to drive into town to have lunch with our other great grand Micah (now one) and his parents at my favorite place to eat, Papadeaux Restaurant. Ah yes.

If you think it is not appropriate to use this type blog in this manner . . . well . . . get over it. It's what grandpa's do.

So cute! And that's my dad's b-day. Important day in history--Titanic sank, Lincoln was either killed or born (I forget!) and it's tax day! All the best to your family and congratulations on your great-grandson!
