I remember the morning that my son was born at the USAF Academy
Hospital back in the late 60s. His mother was well attuned to the needs
of an expectant father: she had prepared a small paper bag of "goodies"
to keep me entertained during her labor. Contents?
6 of the newest "Aircraft Profiles"
The latest issue of "Scale Modeler"
2 Candy bars
A roll of quarters to call the relatives.
As for waiting 5 or 6 years before he gets his "first kit"? Doubtful.
I would be willing to bet that he will be going through your entire model
stash - both built and unbuilt - NLT age 3 !!!
Best wishes to the wife - after all, she was the heir bearer........

Hey, my girl is just about nine months. It is fabulous. She is daddy's
little girl already.
One little warning. Be careful when changing him. That thing can go off
at the worst times.
Many congratulations to you and yours. Enjoy your children while you can (they
grow up too damned fast, it seems) and never let anything come between you.

Good on ya' mate!! Hope all is well and stays that way. I realize this is
unsolicited advice, and I'll apologize for it, but here goes... No idea what
kind of music you like, but listen very closely to these songs and sincerely
take the messages to heart--Harry Chapin's "Cats in a Cradle", John Anderson's
"Wish I coulda been there" and "Busy Man" by Billy Ray Cyrus. Don't make the
same mistake I and numerous others have--try very hard to give them all the
time they need and deserve. Ok, I'm done now, sorry. PS--watch out for that
green/brown/yellow putty, it's some pretty nasty stuff; it fills in places
you'd rather it didn't, and is hard to remove. Given a choice, I prefer the 3M
stuff ; )

Just a quick one to say thanks for all your kind words.
Mum and baby doing fine apart from the 2 hour sleep intervals.
Which is nice!
PS: Anyone find a use for the "Green Putty" they produce?
Think I might be on to something new here!!!!!!
A slow participant here but congrats to ye and your better half on your 1/1
new addition. You got great advices from the troop. Heed them....heh.
Re the advice about the "green putty"? I wouldn't touch with a TWENTY foot
5-6 is too old.
Mine is up to and nearly past snap tites at 4.
Be careful, the putty like substance they produce from that dorsal seam is not
as good as tamiya or even squadron...

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, perhaps you've
misunderstood the situation.
Man that stuff sticks like s**t to a shovel.
A couple of clothes pegs and a garden hose should do the trick.
(if any ladies are reading this, it was a joke. I know what your saying,
"typical male, he'll need more than two pegs!!")

BTW, the inital effluent, what I called "black tar" is temporary, a
result of the nutrition served in utero. It will take on more. ahem, normal
odor and appearance after a week or so of being fed with breast or bottle.
