My cousin got a new son yesterday at 11:16. Little Jack is 7lbs 14oz. He doesn't do much yet but we are all hoping for a left handed pitcher. If you see him, say congratulations, if you don't know who he is just send your best wishes and thoughts. Don't forget, if you have an itch to volunteer and are good at grammar, I could use you! Isn't that obvious, oh well.
