    The newest member of the DecaturHawk family has arrived!

    DecaturHawk Baby #5, Joseph Benedict, arrived this morning (11/25/08) at 5:25 AM EST. Little Joe and Mrs. DecaturHawk are doing fine. Joseph weighs in at 8 lbs, 5 oz and 20 inches long. He joins his DecaturHawk siblings Michael, Evan, Margaret and Elizabeth. I'm OK too, if anybody wants to know (aside from not having slept since Sunday night).

    Pictures to follow.
    SOME say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
    To know that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    Robert Frost (1874–1963) (From Harper’s Magazine, December 1920.)

    Congratulations! And may I say you're doing a fine job of keeping Michigan's population growing! It will be a memorable Thanksgiving week for you, I'm sure.

    Congrats, dad!!!

    Wow....five kidlens...my wife and I are not too sure about a third.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Congrats to you DH and all the little Hawks too. Glad to hear MommaHawk is doing well (and you're not making her cook the turkey this year...right?).

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Agree with what everybody has said already.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
