R & E Birthday Bowl

Change in programming today. My grandparents’ (mom’s parents) birthdays are in January. This year:

As you all know we will be celebrating 75 years of wonderful life.  Since we can’t be together for these momentous occasions we thought of this great contest which we hope you will all take part in.
Normally, Dad tells you a story every year on his birthday.  This year we would like you to tell us your favorite story about life with us.  It can be from any time, as long as it has special meaning to you.

The stories will be available for all to read after we have read them.  Then you can select the story you think wins the trophy.

We’re supposed to send the stories just to them, but since I’m pretty sure none of my immediate family reads my blog, I’m safe. And if they do, hah, I found you!
