Only two defining forces have ever committed to die for you:
Jesus Christ for your soul and
The American G.I. for your freedom.

A Note to Anita and Suzy

Dear adopted daughters,

You have been kept in the dark long enough. I was going through some of your mom’s old photos and discovered this with a press release stating that Caroline (last name was blurred out – and that is the reason I suspect that your mom is hiding something) was on the set of a Sky King movie production in a semi starring role at Malibu Beach, CA. It must have been an important role because; as you can plainly see, she has her name on her beach chair.

What a remarkable discovery – don’t you agree?

I don’t know about you guys – but I think she is beautiful enough to have been in the starring role. Your mom insists that it is not her picture. So I have concluded that she must be hiding something from all of us. For instance, it looks like a coke bottle on the table – but what really is that dark stuff, half consumed? She looks as if she is giving the guy with the camera a come-on. What really intrigues me is what is in the jug! Moonshine? Bathtub Gin? I have no idea and your mom is mum.

I leave it to you gals to solve the many mysteries of your mom. In the meantime, I will be content to continue to go through her old photos – maybe I will find some other interesting aspects of her life that she has been hiding from me and you.

Love you guys,

These delightful girls are Caroline, 10 and Catherine, 8 who are our only grandchildren. They both attend the Vega grammar school in McKinney, Texas and are both active in sports -- Caroline in Volleyball and Catherine in Socker. They provide us unimaginable joy. The photos are by Mom, Anita. I added a little more sparkle to their eyes but very little. We stay in touch through telephone and Skype.
