Good News and Irony
Just been off the phone to my dad. He's a proud man, and with every reason. I've got a new sister, weighing in at 7lbs. So my congratulations to him and Faith, his wife. That brings his total to 7 sprogs now, 4 girls and 3 boys. He said that he's going to hang up his boots now. I told him I'd believe it when I saw it. I reckon the only way that he could hang up his boots would be if someone cut the laces for him, so to speak. And the irony of hearing the good news so soon after finishing A Modest Proposal. Peckish anyone?
