    Talking Congrats!

    The gift of a healthy baby boy is better then any AFG award!

    But on the other hand, I feel like I've been carrying around this AFG application in my stomach for a lot longer then 40 weeks! Where is the Petosin? It is time for this baby to pop.

    Talking Happy days for you grandpa.

    Yes, Congratulations. I understand. You get to experience your child as a baby all over again. Never thought that was possible until my grandson came.

    Get your payback by buying toys that make a lot of noise. Who knows, somehow there has to be something about being Grandpa to help your grant writing experiences.

    Congrats MM! But with a little training, we could train him to be on an engine, so that he's a firefighter, and not just a firefighter's helper!

    And like you already found out on #1, nothing, absolutely nothing is better. Not even hitting the trifecta on the grants in a year.

    Congratulations.

    Dang straight. Why do you think I had kids? Easiest way to get someone else to do the dishes and lawn.

    Till they turn into teenagers - then it is easier to do it yourself.

    I told son that as soon as he left the house and went to college and left the house, I was buying a ZTR with all the bells and whistles. I finally bought two, one with a 72 inch deck, the other with a 54 inch deck, and won't let him drive either of them! He says he never knew I was not just kidding with him....

    When I was 15 (in 1989) Dad started letting me move the car around parking lots and stuff. One uncle asked Dad if he wasn't worried about me hitting something with the car. Dad told him the car is a 1980 Chevy Citation he bought for $800. The lawn mower was a Wheel Horse that cost $2500 so the car wasn't much of a worry in comparison.

    Guys teased me when Emma was born first that I wasn't getting out of mowing. I told them the lawn mower is a new age one, it will let girls push it too. None of my outdoor equipment is sexist.

    Thats the good thing about having a son and a daughter, he can do all of the trim work, and the bank while she does the riding mower, and what little push mower work we have on the yard.

    Congrats on the new grandchild, just keep him away from Brians boy, and the truckie thing there is still hope that he will want to be a real firefighter.

    Yeah keep it up you two. Remember they're called TruckMEN so that the engine boys have someone to want to be when they grow up and want to fight some real fire...

    Thanks to everyone for the congrats.....We got the 2 of them home yesterday afternoon.

    I figured we would train one grandson as a Pipeman and 1 as a Truckie so they could watch each others back.
