On Friday morning shortly after 9 am we received an alarming phone call from home saying Dave's parents house was burning. Dave's parents were safe, thanks to an unknown stranger who pounded on their door at 6am to warn them that the roof had caught fire. Unfortunately, Dave's childhood home was mostly destroyed.
That same afternoon the first of our family visitors arrived. Jacquelyn, our niece, will be staying with us for the next 10 days. The camraderie between she and her uncle is excellent and she has quickly become a buffer for Uncle Dave's stupid jokes and all other things Uncle Dave. Those of you who know Dave well know exactly what I am talking about!!! On the flip side, however, with Jacquelyn here Dave is definitely going out his way to be more stupid than usual. Hard to believe I know!
