Grandpa announcement!

2:28 a.m., Wed. May 9, 2012 – our first grandson has arrived on this little blue rock, spinning round the sun: officially named Henry Russell Johnston, weighing in at 7 pounds 12 ounces, natural birth, overdue, so induced, which led to about 16 hours of labour.

Lots of black hair, long legs & big feet! Mom & baby resting comfortably.

I think I want him to call me Bubba [instead of grampa], because it will be easy for a baby to say, and I want him talking to me, soon.

Rik is taking a hiatus from touring. Any updates will be posted here as soon as they are available.
