Congratulations to my dear friend and occasional commenter Dr. As I’m A Bassi and his wife, Mrs. Dr. Bassi, on the birth of their first daughter, Awesomesdottir! May she bring great joy to– you know what? It just occurred to me that the translation of her real name is a term for a medieval weapon. Well played, Dr. Bassi; you may have just taken the blue ribbon of baby-naming. Well played.

Anyhow, may she bring great joy to her parents and fill their lives with love and pride!

The leading initials of the last three posts are A, A, and A. How appropriate.
