    TUESDAY, AUGUST 2ND., 2016

   It was a year ago last night! My wife
and I rushed to the hospital. Although
neither of us was sick!
     My son had called to tell us
our daughter-in-law had gone
into labor!
      My wife and I long before
had made it a policy to be in the
waiting room when our grandkid's
decide to get born so we headed to
the hospital as soon as we got his

entered this world and all of its wonders
to begin his life among us!
        Today marks his first Birthday!
He has captured our hearts and made me
feel young again!
        Happy Birthday Anthony! May
all your NEWS be good!!!!
