It's A Boy!!

Gavin Kauwela Galchutt

9 lb. 2 oz
22" long

My first grandson and a joy to his new Mommy and Daddy (my son) and huge family in Hawaii. Being born on the first day of summer and to honor his large extended Hawaiian family, he was given a Hawaiian middle name. Kauwela means summer solstice, or the first day of summer. He has a wonderful life ahead of him with so many who are already so in love with him. I leave tomorrow (6/26/06) to fly to Kauai to spend 2 weeks holding, loving and getting to know my #1 Grandson. If I could only make time stand still for the next 2 weeks....

You're Welcome, dammit!

Did I miss the memo?? Can someone tell me when I was supposed to stop saying "You're welcome" and begin saying "No problem?" If I thank someone for something, it sure isn't because they caused me a problem. Saying "Thank you" is a way of expressing gratitude for something someone did for you. Responding that it was not a problem is NOT appropriate!! I doubt I would be thanking someone for a problem!! Could we all try to get back to saying "You're welcome" and stop this stupid "no problem" response?? Thankyouverymuch. (no one better be saying noooo problem!)

For Once, Just a Few Words

"America....Land of the Free, Home of the Brave." You know, there's a version I like better...

"America....Land of the Free, Because of the Brave."

God Bless our troops.
