The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

Delayed announcement – touchdown!


God, that was an epic labour, but the new human baby Furlong has got here at last! All the Furlongs are recovering.

Touch down occurred via a C-section. Emergency. Stress. Anxiety, Relief, Joy, Celebration.

The new human that I called the “little sod” in my last post, turned out to be a girl human! She would not have touched down here on this planet if it was 1900 and not 2015, and her Mummy might have re-located too.

How fun and wonderful that they are both well. and the girl human baby is PERFECT!

Medical science at its best, yes?

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

  1. My sympathy. It must have been really, really hard. All that waiting…..and waiting….and er, waiting. You must be exhausted. You all go and have a nice lie down now. Oh, and congratulations by the way.

    PS. Is the baby’s mother okay, after what she put you through?


Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
