Great News!

My youngest son and his wife have presented Family Hoot with a new addition. My third grandson was born today at 4:00 PM. He weighed in at 7 lbs, 4 oz. He is just shy of 21 inches long. All finger and toes accounted for. Mother and Father are doing good (unless my son busts open from being so proud and happy!) I am proud as well! Just thought I would pass along a little good news to y'all.

Thanks to all! I have been absent of late and I do apologize. I have been undergoing some fairly intensive training to qualify as an instructor for a course that has never been offered at the community college. I am coming to the end of it and will take the last of 4 certification exams next week.
Hopefully, I will be able to get back to posting more regularly after that.
