There is music
Even in beauty
And the silent note
Which Cupid strikes,
Far sweeter than the sound
Of an instrument.
Sir Thomas Browne
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope sweet heart-felt sentiments come your way. Cupid's goal is to not miss anyone. He knows that love is what makes our big old complicated world go around.
Paul contracted the flu shortly before or after his recent surgery. He is feeling somewhat better now, for the most part, however; TLC and proper medical care hasn't helped with the nagging cough that still torments him.
We have a beautiful new great-grandchild, Piper Grace Terry. Ms. Terry came into this world on Feb. 4. She weighed 8 pounds, 10 ounces. Mother and daughter are doing well. Paul and I look forward to cradling her in our arms, as does her grandmother, Starla McHugh. She will be in Brownsburg for a few days next week.
I am happy that Lori and her family will be stopping by on or around March 1. They are driving across country to Denver. Lori's husband Clifford Patrick is already working there.
Our granddaughter, Sarah Cory, and her family will be traveling with her. My great-grandson, Caden was a new baby when Sarah moved to Virginia to live with her mother almost two ago. I have yet to meet the latest addition to her family and ours, little Leland.
Granddaughter Elizabeth Cory will stay behind and graduate, the valedictorian of her class. She plans to further her education at Virginia Tech. Her goal since early childhood has been to become a veterinarian.
Granddaughter, Mary Shannon Patrick looks forward to the long trip, becoming a student of a new school, additional friends and the possibility of another crown.
As for Paul and I, we are happy that the gang is healthy and happy.
Thanks to Joyce Emmert and the thoughtful 50th class reunion committee of the Class of 1957 of Brazil High School for the nice "thank you" letter that we received recently! It is safe to say we look forward to seeing everyone again in 2009. We appreciate the current addresses of class members that were included in the mailing. We regret that the list could not longer.
Well the old clock on the wall will be facing the glow of the night- light soon and my eyes tell me it's time to turn in.
