I’m A Great Granddaddy!!!

Atley James Rogers
He was born this afternoon in Lebanon, Tennessee at 12:57 PM.

  • Weight was 6 lbs. 11.5 oz.
  • Length was 18 3/4 in.

Mandy is fine and hopes to go home with new boy on Friday. Alex is also doing really great. They will be excellent parents. You can see it in their eyes.

Here’s a couple of pictures they sent us earlier today:

We just talked to Mandy & Alex using Facetime on our iPads.  It was a great experience to see them and our new great grandson! He is so cute and loveable. Grandmother is very excited as you would know.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
The birth of a child is truly a miracle.

Quote of the Day
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. 
It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. 
~Elizabeth Stone

Joke of the Day

For health reasons, Bill's doctor urged him to move to Arizona.

After settling in, he met a neighbor who was a fit older man.

"Say, is this really a healthy place?" Bill asked.

"It sure is," the man replied. "When I first arrived here I couldn't say one word. I had hardly any hair on my head. I didn't have the strength to walk across a room and I had to be lifted out of bed."

"That's quite an improvement!" said Bill. "How long have you been here?"

"I was born here."
