"At least he won't lack for hand me downs."

I called my Spirtual Train Brother tonight to have a quick chat. Lo and behold I got his lovely wife on the phone. They're expecting but she's been a bit under the weather so there have been some tiptoe moments.

"How are things going?"

"We know it's a boy."

I should remind you that they already have two great sons.

"Oh Pearl, don't think we aren't happy for you but we were rooting for a girl."

"We're just trying to figure out what to name it."

I think "Bucking Odds" sounds nice but that's just because then his older brothers could say they have an "Uncle Buck" which everyone ought to have. I'm not vain enough to suggest Jim so he'll dodge that bullet.

We're thrilled for them and glad that things are going well. He's a little boy that will be born into a tremendous family and that's all you could hope for.
