    Greeting's All-

    Thats right, the subject line says it all. On 27 AUGUST 04 at 1550
    hrs, little KAYLEE DENISE BRIDGES W/F made her arrival
    at U.A.B. Medical West in Bessemer, AL weighing in at 8 lbs. 6 ozs
    and was 20" in length. She arrived with lots of black, curly hair
    blue eyes, long legs, and big feet. As most of you probably know,
    the name Kaylee was selected form our very own THR family.

    The parents of Kaylee Denise Bridges are Carl Thomas and Crystal
    Denise Ford-Bridges of Bessemer, AL; with proud grandparents:
    Dan (Ala Dan) and Charlotte Ford; and Thomas & Helen
    Bridges.

    The mom and little one are doing fine at UAB Med West room 417,
    and are expected to be released on Monday 8/30!

    Respectfully,
    Ala Dan, N.R.A. Life Member

    Many thanks to all for the well wishes, and replies. Both mom
    and the newborn arrived home yesterday afternoon; and both
    are doing extremely well.

    Yes sir Larry, this is my 1st grandchild! :uhoh:

    Best Wishes,

    Then double congrats to you!

    They can be "habit forming". Our first (twins) were born May 3, 2000. By May 3, 2005 we will have EIGHT! And we only have three children (we cheated though, two sets of twins).

    Let the spoiling begin. ;)

    Congratulations, grampaw! You'll have to get her one of those baby rattles that looks like a 1911.

    I got a feeling this kid is going to be spoiled when it comes to guns. ;)

    Congratulations!! They always said grandkids are better, but you don't know how much better until you get some. Just make sure they like to come to Grandpa's house.

    Give Kaylee a hug from Grandma Sandy.:)

    Many thanks for the warm wishes, kisses, and hugs Sandy;
    as I'm sure little Kaylee appreciates them.

    My "digi-cam" won't operate with the Windows XP program, so
    I'm going to shoot some pic's with it and carry it to Wally World
    and have 'em downloaded on a floppy for all to enjoy. So stay
    tuned!

    Best Wishes,

    Congratulations.

    I know that she will enjoy being taught the differences between the European grip angle of the P226 and the American grip angle of the P220. :)
