    The last 48 hours has been tumultuous at best but I just got a call from my wife in Austin, TX that we have two new grandsons. I'll be leaving Colorado for Austin this morning as soon as I can get the breakfast burritos made, packaged and delivered. She left yesterday around noon to be with our daughter, son in law and oldest grandson for this momentous occasion. Needed to make things secure around the little house on wheels in the mountains and make sure I had folks lined up to take over for a week to ten days in my absence I had to stay behind yesterday. I'll post pics and update when I can. But for now, we're proud grandparents again! WOOHOO! - Clay

    I'm not allowed to post anything public on FB yet but since we're all private and such here I figure I can let the cat out of the bag on this one with all my WB friends. IMG_0904.JPG . Here is the only pic I have thus far. Nanny and the boys!

    Thank you Tony. I'm excited again. LOL. I bought Mason T a Daisy Red Rider BB gun for his baby shower before he was born. I did the same for Caleb and Wyatt. LOL. And they also got a thousand rounds of ammo to boot!

    Thank you Tim. I agree. It has been loads of fun watching their momma's face as they used her bladder for a punching bag. I can only imagine what's going to come of all that energy now that they are here.

    I got to spend a little quality time with the boys yesterday and also was able to feed them both. Other than mommy or daddy, Pappaw was the first to get to enjoy this activity. What a blessing. We expect them to get to come home in a few days. They were a little early thanks to a stomach bug that caused Beth to go into labor early. But both were fully developed and the NICU is only a precautionary measure to make sure they both got the best of care. No problems at all. And we are so very blessed that the kids live close enough to Austin that the helicopter flight for Beth was only 18 minutes long from Marble Falls, TX. I will be headed back to Colorado in a couple or three days after I do some more traveling, picking up supplies from various places to continue our work among the homeless in Southern Colorado. I thank you all for your prayers and the family your are to Mary and myself. God Bless you all! Shalom!

    now those pictures are special!!!!!

    figure you have been watching the weather, but we have a full blown blizzard finishing up and it hit south a bit harder than anticipated. Blowing itself out up here in the Springs, but they have closed I-25 over Raton, I have a 3 foot drift in the backyard, sections of I-70, US-24, and other smaller highways closed. Just stay down there!!!

    Yes sir. I was speaking to my go-to-guy, Cris this morning before the worst of it hit. As of 9 am MT they had 3" in Trinidad. I told him to hunker down after they got breakfast served this morning because the brunt of it was still to come. Thanks for the heads up. I intend to stay down here another day or two, depending on the status of the twins and when they get to come home. - Clay
