Another Bobo - William Thompson Bobo



       Celebration Board Member and prominent Shelbyville attorney John T. Bobo and his wife Janice welcomed their third grandchild into the world this morning at 6:05 AM CST.  William Thompson Bobo was born at the Middle Tennessee Medical Center in Murfreesboro, TN and tipped the scales at 7 pounds, 12 ounces and measured 20 3/4 inches. 

      Proud daddy Todd and his beautiful wife Cynthia are both doing fine after an exciting all-nighter for Todd and a painful all-nighter for Cynthia.  Rumor has it that University of Tennessee football coach Phil Fulmer and basketball coach Bruce Pearl were spotted in the hosipital shortly after the birth but we have been unable to confirm those reports.

     John T. and Janice had their second grandchild last month on Christmas eve as daughter Mandy and husband Travis presented them with a gorgeous granddaughter - Macy Suzanne Simon.  John T's youngest son Andy and his wife Clair are expecting triplets this spring to go with the first Bobo grandchild, two year old Madeline.

     Since Bobo serves as legal counsel for both the Celebration and the Breeders' Association, an increase in fees at both associations should not be unexpected.  And yes, that means the Bobo's will go from one grandchild to six in less than a year.  Is this a great country or what!!
