As any who can read the bottom of the Physicsforums home page can tell, today (Sunday 29 Jun) is my birthday.
I just received a call from my son in Pittsburgh. If all goes well, today I will become a grandfather!

What a birthday present!

That's great! Congratulations!

However, in my opinion, the birthday present of a live time involves an 18 year old girl and a whole bunch of frosting.

LOL,
Humm... could we make that some frosting and a whole bunch of 18 yr old girls?

Seems like a sticky topic to me, I'll have to talk to my wife about it!

Rumor has it, yes! A 9lb boy. I have not yet heard it from my son, but did from my brother! He called to congratulate me, was amazed to learn that he had the news before I did.

Congratulations.

Make sure he makes friends with lots of girls to keep us amused in 18 years time.

If I'm still posting on these boards in 18 years, all of you have permission to put me out of my misery.
