    It happened.

    I am a father! Matthew Douglas Fry was born April 14, 2002 at 11:50PM.

    Weight 8lbs. 5oz.
    Length 20.5"
    Perfect health

    I will post some pics soon.

    I already got him a set of Timberlands and a Carhart hat as well as a small fireman's uniform. Now to just teach him to operate the equipment.:)

    That's great to hear!

    Hey, don't forget the other item of equipment your young lad's going to need: Welding leathers and a shield! ;)

    Well, if I were ordering from the factory I'd have spec'd something a little heavier duty. You'll spend literally *years*, not to mention thousands of dollars, upgrading that unit before you can get any real productivity out of it. :D


    (Hint from a father of 5--Even after those years of upgrades you still won't be able to get him do *exactly* what you want him to. There's just something a little loose in the controls of that model...) ;)

    Congratulations. Now you can start building up business with an eye to the future. All he'll need to do is manage accounts.

    The 2002 models are very high maintenance for the first few years, but worth every minute. With a little TLC, this one will provide many years of enjoyment.

    At 8lbs, I would have to say you super sized that small Fry. :)

    My son turns 18 this Saturday. Boy time really flies when you are having fun. Seems like just yesterday that I held him for the first time. I can still close my eyes and re-live the day he was born. :)

    Have you noticed that the plowers are having babies in the spring, and not in the fall? Tells you something about conception and the plowers life:p Congrats and enjoy. Maybe we should start a new forum just for birth announcements. HMM:confused:

    My "little guy" weighed in at 95 lbs today. He's 8&1/2 and I remember seeing him as a peanut in the first sonogram! He has 3 Matchbox Snowplows lined up on his dresser. He even helps me hang the Fisher (Minute mount my ***). He usually operates the blade when he's out with me. I have a hard time dropping him off as it gets late. He'd be out all night with me if he could. He distributes my fliers when he Trick-or-treats! The timing is usually good. The customers ask for him when I go collecting. You'll have a good buddy now,ENJOY, it goes fast!
    As for breeding season,this year was a bust in Staten Island for snow so......(not my house) but who knows.... :) :) :)
