    Newest Cyclist

    Well not for a little while but I'd like to announce the newest addition to my family. A fine looking baby girl who entered the world at 12:32pm EST yesterday weighing 7lb 6 oz and an impressive 20 inches in length. Mom and baby are both doing fine though they won't be home until Friday. She joins my 6 year old daughter who does ride and hopefully always will.

    Congratulations Walter! One of my buddies I ride with had a boy a couple days ago too. No more sleeping for a while!

    Many thanks to all. To answer you Dirtgrinder it's Carolyn after my mother. Unfortunately, they'll not get the chance to meet each other but I'm pretty sure my mother is looking down with a smile.

    Congratulations to you and your wife, Walter. Keep posting!

    Way to go. My physics teacher just had a baby girl yesterday too, and his was 22 inches. There must be something in the air. :fun:
