lucy comes into the world
On May 5th, 2007, Lucy Margaret Rados came into the world. She is my husband Bill's granddaughter, his third grandchild. Of course, she is beautiful, as you can see. She will be three months old when we get to see her, hold her, greet her, coo.
I liked Jenny's (Jenny is Lucy's mother, and Bill's daughter) comment: "She is the most easygoing of our babies so far--though maybe we just finally have a vague idea of what we're doing!" A few weeks later she said, "We can't wait for Gilmanton [N.H]. Am thinking we need to instate the 5pm cocktail hour!" So that's it, and Drew Farm will have to participate.
Years ago when there were no grandchildren Jenny and I (with help from others...) gave a cocktail party at Green Pastures, a place where we stayed, that was "in the family," because Drew Farm was being rented. We endured strange evenings there listening to the high-pitched songs of the skunk litter in the basement. Anyway, Jenny and I rustled up prosciutto and melon (we were ahead of the curve) and my mother's cheese puffs hot from the oven. A good time was had by all. Now we have our own recently remodeled bee-yoo-tiful kitchen at Drew Farm. Should be a snap. Let the word out, 5pm, come up to Drew Farm. You won't be disappointed. And Lucy will be on display, fresh from her nap!
