I can't believe only a week has gone by since my last column. So much has happened! We had the Valone family picnic Saturday. My father-in-law only had one brother. His brother never had any children. But I guess my father-in-law took seriously his job of prolonging the family name. He had 10 children and they all did well although no one has 10 children, or even five these days. We totaled 61 people at the picnic. They are great! Marrying into that family was the best decision I ever made. Choose your in-laws wisely!
