Not quite this anymore….

….thanks to the newest Korrektivkind:


Claudia Maureen. 9 lbs. 6 oz. 20 3/4 inches. Feb. 9. (4:50 a.m. (that’s right, A.M.)

Which for those with Irish Alzheimer’s (you forget everything but the grudges) means mnemonically that 2 had 9 on 2/9…


So, I might be looking for a new set of plates but then again I might not… You see, 9-9 just doesn’t have the same ring to it.




  1. Pride, caution.

    Congratulations, old man. Surely one of ’em will grow up to be a Giants fan…

    • Actually, I’ve got Liam in my corner – a few years back as his Gigantic consciousness began to awake he spoke great wisdom on the DVD 5-disc packager which included all the playoff games and the Superbowl (this was the first time vs. Patsies) “…and the best part about it is, THEY ALWAYS WIN!”


  2. Wonderful news! She is just lovely, Joseph. Congratulations!

  3. Jonathan Potter says

    Bravo! She looks beautiful and tough.

  4. Gorgeous. Congratulations many times over.

    God is good.

  5. Oh, she’s beautiful. I’ve been wondering when she was going to be here.

  6. Jonathan Potter says

    And her birthday lines up nicely between Webb’s (2/7) and mine (2/10). Go Aquarius!

    • Coincidences abound! All that AND she lives in a town that begins with an S…!

      Thanks – that’s good to know – when she’s old enough I’ll tell her the strange truth of it all…
