CRYING UNCLE AT 30,000 FEET ...!

                             

Good news, friends!  While I was busy making my way back to the U.S. today, my nephew, Jackson Martin Quintal, was busy making his way into the world.  Jackson was born this afternoon, three weeks early but healthy, happy and cute as a button, weighing-in at just over five pounds.  The whole family is thrilled, especially Proud Parents Karen and Doug.  My parents recently gave me a candle to light when Jackson was born.  The message on the candle reads, "Here's a candle for you to light, Once the stork has made his flight, With a flicker of the Flame, Please send good thoughts in Jackson's name."  Welcome to the World, Jackson!  I'm sending good thoughts your way from 7th and Montana ...!

Now I just know, Unc is going to look after Jackson good, with lots of nice treats, but no Merrick muffins!
Welcome into the world Jackson.
