Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22564 – 877
Here’s the haps:
I have a new grandson who came by a fairly normal delivery but of course, it’s special to us. named after Grandma Pike and a mountain his name is Pike Yama. Yama is “mountain” in Japanese. The obvious play on Pike’s Peak was not lost on me but what I was told was that the mixing of the two cultures would be considered an honor in Japan. This is Youngest Daughter’s family and even though they live here they don’t like to be too much in the limelight on the blog so you may not hear a whole lot about him. As many of my readers, especially the regulars, can attest from reading past posts and from their own life experiences, this could become a distraction from the blogosphere pretty quickly, lol.
Congratulations on the new grand baby!
Congratulations on the new member of the family!
Aww. Congrats. And, our newest babe is still under seven pounds so we were commenting on how fragile we feel he is when picking him up!
Yeah, this one feels meaty compared to some, for sure.
Congratulations on adding to your legacy!
Congratulations. Love the name. Allan
congratulations to all – love the name!
At 10:29 am on Nov 15th (also the birthday of my daughter Jennifer) our youngest sons wife gifted us with grandbaby #18! Congratulations to your family Herb. I’m now asking my kids to please stop … 😵💫😂
Hahahaha! It’s something in their drinking water, I think.
Congratulations to parents and Bumpaw
Laugh a while See what happens
In my job, of course, I get to handle that dynamite all the time. Sometimes the baby dynamite sticks gang up on you. So fun!
Hahaha. I can imagine.
Wow, so cuuuuuuute. He does look like he is thinking philosophically about his hands. And yes, the meaning of human limbs and human life in general.
And the human adventure is just beginning.
Congratulations, Herb! We gained a grandson and a great granddaughter this weekend. Looking forward to meeting them both. Grandbabies are so fascinating and amusing! I hope you thoroughly enjoy your little one.
I always liked the bumper sticker, “Grandchildren are God’s reward to you for not killing your children.”
Good one Herb. 😂
Congratulations! That’s lovely news.
Excellent news! I loved the memes, the second one in particular.
You know it’s really true, lol.
