Well, this time I have a good excuse … I became a dad! Mary Helen (a/k/a the Best Wife Ever) and I welcomed our daughter Olivia into the world at 8:36 Central time on Saturday, August 9.
We did miss the big “08/08/08” convergence, but that’s OK. Everyone is home from the hospital now and we are getting Olivia adjusted to a good routine. (Obviously we are also adjusting to her.)
Naturally I hope she acquires her dad’s tastes in comics, space operas, etc. I put a Dean Trippe Supergirl print in her nursery, to get her started out right.
