November 8 – “Love is a hammer that will break the hardest heart.”

Well this election is over, thank goodness; I realize that some of us are very happy this morning and there are some of us who are very sad this morning; we are all going to have to work together to get this country back on its feet, so fellow Americans let's start today to improve things.

Carl and Sadie Kelsey recently traveled with their daughter and son-in law, Jennifer and Robin Dickson, to Michigan City, Indiana, on the occasion of Sadie's sister and brother-in-law, Maggie and Con Eichelberg's 50th anniversary. Upon arrival they joined nine family members from Tennessee including Sadie's sisters, Loretta and Joyce at a Lake Michigan, Beach walk home. Maggie and Con were brought to the home under false pretenses to discover family had arrived to help them celebrate. After recovering from the shock, Maggie quickly recalled that Carl had given her away at their wedding on October 27, 1962. The group spent the weekend together casually hanging out, visiting family homes, attending a dinner and dancing (no surprise that Carl refused to dance), and traveling to Chicago on the party bus (limo). During the brief trip they experienced 50-degree temperature changes, 50-cent gas price changes and met Sandy (Super Storm Sandy) in the form of a blizzard in Beckley, West Virginia.
