Owen Patrick Fitzgerald
Last Tuesday, we headed to South Florida as our granddaughter, Amber, who was with child, had entered the hospital with the expectation of delivering said child. Soon. But it didn't happen on Tuesday. It happened on Wednesday, November 25.
And so we greeted our first great-grandchild, Owen Patrick Fitzgerald, and welcomed him into the world.
Not that we're proud, nor prone to exaggerate, but Owen is about perfect, as you can see.
Our family's celebration of Thanksgiving, however, was upended by Owen's arrival, and other factors. Suffice it to say, we did not do the usual, "traditional" thing, but instead, Lois Anne and I gathered with our two daughters (one from Colorado), and a son-in-law, and celebrated Thanksgiving at what's known as the 84 Diner in Davie, Florida. The 84 Diner gets its name from the fact it's located on old Highway 84.
But the omelets, hashbrowns, pancakes, bacon, salads, bagels, and pieces of toast were wonderful!
Thank you all for your kind greetings and well-wishes. It is so nice to have such great friends all over the world!
