Happy Birthday

Because I am just now able to get to a computer for a few minutes, I am a bit late in announcing the arrival of our daughter, Pandora. Born 5/7/2008, 7 lbs 4.5 oz, 21.25" @ 8:40 pm.

The only thing I can say is this:
The door is closed. The safety lecture has been given. The fasten seatbelts light is on, and the pilot just hit the throttle. We are well on our way to what will surely be a giant adventure. We already have a few stories from her first few days of life, and at least one of them is a defecation misadventure involving the poor timing of an inexperienced parent.

Thanks to all for kind words, support, gifts, advice, and everything else that our friends have provided. We are really lucky people to have our friends. Pictures will be posted soon at
Also - if there is anybody that I did not notify personally in the last few days, please don't take it as anything but my poor planning and lack of a centralized information store. (I know - I should have an Exchange server here at the ranch) I still have a lot of phone calls to make, and I'm learning how to be a dad.

Time to go see if Mrs. Junkpc is still sleeping. She deserves it.
