” … Greenhorn couldn’t handle this,” is what I heard my OB say as he was attempting to deliver the six-day-late baby who kept “turtling” and would not emerge from my body.
“Who is Dr. Greenhorn?,” I kept thinking.
OK, OK, now I know he meant not a specific doctor, just an inexperienced one, and I think he was probably right, because it was kinda complicated pushing into the world that 10-pound, 9-ounce boy and his Superman-like placenta cape. But he arrived, he was healthy, and that was 11 years ago! Happy Birthday to my now 114-pound Joey!
Joey’s gift to his dad is this photo that was chosen to be published in today’s Father’s Day issue of The Gainesville Sun. It also appears in an online gallery at http://bit.ly/ihyotS — slide #22.
Danny’s gift is a mug, featuring John’s all-time-favorite Danny artwork.
Plus, a special message.
And because a celebration for John would not be complete without some chocolate, well, he’s getting some of that, too!
Happy Father’s day, John!
(and their mom)
The University of Florida Men’s basketball team, ranked ninth in the first Associated Press men’s basketball poll on Thursday, scored a 92-58 win against Florida Tech last night. It was exciting, but not near as thrilling for Danny as it was to snuggle up next to mascot Albert the Alligator.
