Here’s the haps:

Hi Gang! Well, we knew there was another grandbaby on the way but wasn’t due for five more weeks yet. Everything went well and we have a new granddaughter, Violet Stephanie Berlyn, 5 pounds, 15 ounces, 20 inches long. Baby sister to the toddler we were sitting with back in May. We have the two older siblings, the toddler and their puppy staying with us for a few days. Visiting you guys will be sporadic at best while I’m having fun with the whole bunch including our own dog, Hey Boy, a royal standard poodle.


  1. Congratulations!!!! 🎊 🍼 😀 Precious new grandchild, precious times to treasure….ain’t life grand!

  2. Congratulations Grandpa Herb. Looks like we are destined to be only fur grandparents to our children’s pets. Hope all is well with you. Allan

  3. That’s wonderful news! Congratulations to the whole family. Violet is a good size which is the best news of all. I have only known one Violet and she was lovely.

  4. Congratulations. What a happy occasions. Such joy in a big family. I love the big party of the extended family when I was young, but I haven’t had that for quite a while. LOL. Everybody has to give comments on the look of the baby. That’s really wonderful.

    • Thank you. You’re right about everybody making a comment on the baby’s looks. Over the years I’ve learned to NOT say, “Yup. Looks like a baby.”

I like comments and try to respond to them all if I can:
