Maverick, here, not here!
(Man begging his wife's forgiveness just before Divorce court in Chicago 1948)
I have mentioned that we have a couple new babies coming soon in the family. If I haven’t mentioned it yet, two days ago Sherry received a picture from Mark on the cell phone with two baby pictures. One fairly clear but blurred. The other very clear. WE jumped to the conclusion, “Maverick” has been born. We looked at the pictures it looked like one picture was taken before the baby was even cleaned up. Sherry said he sure looks like Matt (the daddy). She called Shirl and told here Maverick had arrived. (There was no note with the pictures, Mark had just forwarded them)
Ok turns out the blurred picture was Little Maverick in the womb, he is NOT born yet. The other picture was Matthew at birth. So of course Sherry was right the clear picture looked exactly like Matt, because it was. LOL (I wouldn’t have known, most babies look alike to me!) Thank goodness we learned before we announced to the world that the baby had arrived. When Sherry called Shirl back she said, ‘good they should have sent it back, we want some girls!’ LOL
I was amazed at the detail in the image from the womb, and the blurry shot does look like Matt.
Anyway the name ‘Maverick’ is from the video we had of Maverick. Matt watched that one EVERY time he came to our house. I think the name is sorta unique, as long as the kid isn’t vaccinated with the gambling bug.
Things are shaping up. The screening is finished except for one panel and the door. Son Mark, soon to be Mavericks grandpa, is coming up tomorrow to bring us a door. When that is installed the job of screening will be complete.
