Meet Finnegan! Finnegan is our new grandson born just two weeks ago. He is very quiet and gentle but his body is one of a brute in the making.
He comes from some pretty large people. I could see him at 6 foot 6, 260 in 18 years, a formidable foe on the grid iron or other arenas.
He also has the makings of a talented musician. Only God knows who Finnegan will be.
Finn is pretty famous in Gaelic Irish history. I have to admit I had to ask twice when I asked our daughter his name. I had never heard the name Finnegan for a first name or the nickname Finn.
The good thing is he is big, strong, and healthy. He is a solid chunk on my old left arm the way I hold babies out in front of me. I love to study their every feature.
So this blog's for you, young Finnegan. I am your crazy Papaw Winkle. I wish you the best of health and life and success in every endeavor. I must tell you though that some of my biggest lessons came at my defeat.
I am a farmer through and through but I love to teach children and hope to teach you.
You have great parents, siblings and grand parents, maybe even better if it weren't for me.
I yearn to live long enough to see who you will be.
Most important, welcome to this family!
