    I was going to put this in the Announcements forum, but since that's for CF announcements (forum updates and such), I thought better of it.

    Anyway, I realized that I hadn't mentioned this here yet. I'm officially a grandfather. My son David and his wife Kim had their first child, a son on Sunday, February 22nd at 7:10 p.m. Pacific Time (USA).

    For those of you who are into "baby statistics", here they are:
    Landon James
    7 pounds, 4 oz
    19 inches long

    You'll have to do the conversion into whatever units of measurement you're used to.

    My wife and I will be traveling to Southern California to visit the little tyke tomorrow morning and we'll be back late Monday.

    Hard to believe someone will be calling me "grandpa" as soon as he can talk.

    Congrats! I'm just starting to get over the fact I'm a new dad. Can't imagine what it must feel like
    becoming a grand-dad...

    Again, have fun and buy toys with no off button :)
