    Hink_Planner v.2 and v.3

    Well Mrs.Hink_Planner and I welcomed our twin boys on Tuesday morning. I won't be around much for a bit, but I figured I would update. Both boys and mom are healthy and happy. Now comes the fun part....

    Double Congrats! That should keep you occupied for a while. Drop in when you have time.

    Congrats, Hink!

    I'm available for any advice about having three boys under 4.

    But I at least don't have twins....that's going to be a rough time for you and your wife,
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    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.

    Congrats!

    And as a planner we appreciate your efficiency in doing two at once--all about the density!

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Congrats hink. You'll now have all the fun in the world with little ones running the show.

    BTW-did you name one Legend and the other Leader?

    Couldn't resist-seriously, all the best!

    Congratulations!

    Do you have vests for them yet? The crib(s) have buckeyes hanging above instead of the usual colorful objects? The bedroom painted scarlet and grey? Instead of "Momma....Dadda" will their first statements sound like "O - H - I - O"? With the usual arm movements?

    Seriously......you must be one proud dad! Congrats!
