Happy belated birthday...
…to Daniel Hi'ilani Tsark, who, at 4 lbs. 15 ounces, made his entrance to the world at 3:52 p.m. on January 4th way, way out there in Arizona.Those of you who haven't met Kara have probably seen her comments (as kltsark) here on 'cat.net, and those of you who have known me for a while know that Kara was partly responsible for Jeff and I meeting in the first place. She was my maid of honor in the Great Grand Circus™ that was our wedding, and during Dad's illness last year she, having lost her mother-in-law to cancer, was one of those knowledgeable and understanding friends who made getting through each tough day … possible.
Mom, dad, and little one are sleepy but healthy, and for that, I'm happy and relieved. As a friend, I can't ask for anything more than that.
Kara's going to be a great mom, and damn if I'm not sniffly even thinking that as I write this.
