A Child Arrived Just The Other Day...

...and she is a beauty.  

Shortly after 5:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 6, a full sixteen days before she was predicted to do so, my beautiful granddaughter graced us with her presence.  While she had already tattooed her name upon her Pop Pop's heart some months ago, her decision to make her entrance early in the morning and on a Saturday to boot merely served to strengthen the bond. 

Baby Maggie arrived happy and healthy.  Upon doing so, she served as a reminder for a certain grizzled, cantankerous old crab-ass of the fact that no matter how much bad shit there is in the world, there is always room for hope.  

Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies...




...and Saturday morning it was born anew.
