    Vicki, I have some things that belong to you, namely, the manuscript for Last Hotel for Women. I’d like to return the items to you but don’t want to just leave them on your front porch. I’m afraid someone might take them. Please let me know what to do with these items. Janie (

    Howie, thanks for the wonderful Happy Birthday blog. You and Eddie have been in recent conversation: Dennis & I just returned from a two week trip to Havelock, North Carolina to see our stunning grandson, Jack Kuehl–who is your, what? Do we (southerners) say 3rd cousin or 2nd cousin once removed? He carries the Russell family genes, it appears: the scotch-irish skin, eyes, and ingenuity. He’s a year old now.

    Ashley and Trey are doing well. They’ve been active with Marines for Obama. My ongoing gratitude to Eddie for his work in this (and other) campaign. It’s close to home, it’s a family thing: electing Obama, saving Trey from a 2nd tour in Iraq.

    On the drive up, Dennis and I were remembering good times spent with you and Eddie, particularly when we were all young and didn’t spend our time at funerals.

    Laura is in Lubbock, Tx. still. She’s got a new boyfriend, Ryan–met him through the Obama campaign. He’s “with the band,” too. Laura and Ryan perform at the Bright House in Lubbock with a group called, ‘The Pretties.’ Yes, indeed–the family hiplets carry the banner, the beat goes on.

    I love you,
