Carolyn and Ben hosted our Christmas Dinner that included Bev and Jerry, John's parents. As you can imagine, there was a lot of discussion about future events in which we all have an intense interest. Even little Pip seems to sense that something special is "in the works". We were sworn to secrecy so our Christmas letter didn't even hint at the likely hood of a Great Grandchild. Now that the embargo has been lifted, we are telling everyone we talk to. Jerry and Bev are great people and we have always enjoyed our visits with them. They moved to Seward in 1986 and John and Julie were classmates from first grade on through High School. They were competitors for first chair in the saxophone section of the Junior High Band. Mr. Frisbie, their instructor, even made the comment years ago that if they ever were to marry and have a family, the off-springs should be good musicians. Time will Tell.
