Ok, here is a little story for you guys to have a bit of a giggle at. My wife Amanda gave birth to a beautiful little baby boy on friday, both are doing well.

Now the funny part is that we are blaming you guys for this little surprise. :D Approx. nine months ago we decided we had finished having kids (we have 3) and gave all our baby stuff, pram, clothes etc to friends and downsized our car to a 5 seater. About a week later Amanda picked up an esky full of trout fingerlings for our AP setup. While cleaning out the esky she managed to jam her fingers under the lid and fracture one of them. Now we have since learnt that certain pain-killers can cancel out the contraceptive pill... :oops:

So to cut a long story short, if we hadn't become obsessed with this aquaponics thing, we wouldn't have been buying trout fingerlings and none of this would have happened. I hope you all feel guilty. :naughty:

Cheers, Chris and Amanda.

Congratulations, but: if you were a true Aquaponics enthusiast you wouldn't have time to get your wife pregnant... :D

Haha that is hilarious :funny1: :oops: Sorry, it probably isn't meant to be. And congratulations, what a lovely little surprise.
There are a couple of lessons here
1. Aquaponics spawns more than fish
and
2. I always said to Joel, "we need a cartoonist. Someone that can put these funny stories in to pictures :lol:

Yeah right, I can just imagine the names you guys would come up with... maybe Murray, middle name Cod? What about something with the initials IBC? :D
