I was quite surprised last Saturday evening when my doorbell rang and in walked Stephanie, my niece from Kansas. Stephanie's grandmother was the half-sister of my wife Phyllis, so even thought she's technically a "grand-niece" I still think of Stephanie as my niece. It's been maybe 20 years since I've seen her and had not met her husband or son. They were visiting Canon City to go river rafting and when their day of fun ended, they stopped in for a visit.
It was so good to see them and get caught up on all the family news. Thank you, Stephanie and Todd for taking time to say "HI" to Uncle Ernie!
