Hi, John. Lisa Childress here, under deep cover of anonymity.

Congratulations to Lillian and Linda and you on the new arrival! :o)

I'm so glad everything went well and Lillian's ordeal is over. She looked really Big in those previous pictures, and I am sure she was uncomfortable!

Babies give us hope that the world may actually turn out all right, don't they?

Congratulations, John!

You already have nicknames for the baby?

John Guzlowski said...

Lillian doesn't have a name for the baby yet but we do have a nickname: Lulu.

As kids, Lillian and I were sharing a sled at Kiwanis park and on one particularly fast run, we flew right into the creek. There was shock, exhilaration and excitement - a lot like childbirth.

My love to Lillian and Luciana. What a beautiful pair.

I'm so happy for you. Grandchildren are the best! I know! But, I have to say, it is so strange to see a former professor who is stuck in time in my mind, to be holding a grandchild. You should still be in your 40's walking between the desks in Coleman Hall encouraging all of us to open our minds and write about it. Congrats dear friend and mentor!

Oma, thanks for the note. I hate to say it but the only place I feel my grandfatherliness is in my knees.

All those years of running and biking and nordic tracking have chipped away whatever keeps my knees working.

Other than that I'm still telling studentsto keep their minds open but now I do it online teaching for for EIU's English Dept.
