Congratulations, Mike. My youngest turned thirty this month with nary a grandchild (never mind a marriage) in the planning (although there's hope for the latter). My YOUNGER sister already has a great grandchild. But I remain unembittered...

REDUNDANCY

God is good.
So are Geary genes,
Another batch of which
just made the scene,
in the form of a boy born of Ondine.
So here's the pitch:
If it's for genes you itch,
and no one in the hood
looks like they could
saw wood,
then call me:
The Gene Machine,
Yes, of course we had to share
the territory with the Lowrimores
and the Schmitts and the Mitchells
and the Sweets and the Greenes
-- but what the hell, he's still a Geary.
