New Shoots

It's Joe's birthday today. Spring is here. There are new shoots on the trees and shrubs.

It's Joe's birthday today. There are new shoots everywhere. At 4:45 this morning the phone rang. (I thought I was being called in to work.) It seems that Grandpa Joe's birthday present arrived early this morning on the east coast.

Felicity Elizabeth, 9 lbs, 2 oz, 19 inches. Dad (eldest son), Mom (dear DIL), and baby are doing fine.
Grandpa Joe is very happy with his present. Grandma Pat is very happy, too, that little Felicity decided to share her birthday with Grandpa.
Spring is here.
