L&H&Mom got back from Colorado just in time to join us for a lovely dinner. I’m copying this in here for the historical record. It’s confusing. It’s not really very interesting at all unless you are related. Feel Free to skip it.
Who are these people? My half-sister Phyllis, (my fathers daughter from a previous marriage) had four children and the oldest, Tim, was exactly my age. Tim and I were like very close cousins because Phyllis and Phyllis’s husband Don lived with my parents, (Phyllis’s father and her father’s new wife, my mother) and Lona, my mother’s daughter from a previous marriage, when Tim and I were born. Tim and I and my father and mother and Lona and Phyllis and Don spent my first few years living together on the Great Highway right across the street from the esplanade and the beach in San Francisco.
Phyllis’s next child, Jennifer, has lived most of her life in a group home due to many severe handicaps.
After Jennifer came Erica. She and her husband Mike, have three children, Amy (just graduated high school), and Nicholas and Bradley.
The youngest of Phyllis’s children is James. He and his family are the ones pictured here. James and his wife Carolynne and their two children Justin (almost 9) and Jake (2 1/2).
