I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the newest member of our family, Lynryd. (I didn't name him. There is a story with his name. I also didn't bring him home. There is also a story with that, just in case you were wondering).
Josh, our future Marine that will be leaving in 6 weeks, came in the other evening with this puppy. He gave it to his siblings and told them it was a gift from him. He looked at me and smiled. I glared back at him and told him he better start talking and fast! He explained that a girl talked him into going to the pound with her. They were putting puppies to sleep because the pound is so full of unwanted dogs. Josh and Morgan picked out this little tyke and brought him home. They both were counting on Michael and I saying, "Yes." As you can see, he was right.
Josh named him Lynryd because his best friend was suppose to get the puppy's brother and name him Skynyrd. Then there would be Lynryd Skynryd. However, the other kid decided to ask his mother before bringing the puppy home, and she said, "NO!" Now we are just stuck with a very cute puppy with a very bad name!
grace and peace,
