A New Baby Boy!

What a day! My fourth grandchild was born today -- Lochlan Wesley Tweedie Howard. He is the 10th generation of the Howard family to live on Ocracoke. And....today is also my 60th birthday! What a wonderful birthday present.

Look for photos tomorrow (unless Tropical Storm Alex wreaks havoc on the island power and/or internet connections).

    Phillip,
    congratulations on your grandson, and on your birthday! I hope the hurricane misses all of you!
    I do enjoy reading the journal, and I miss visiting the Island.
    Thanks, Karen Quinn
