I have a lot to tell you. Some major stuff has been happening here - some of it good and fun, some of it sad and tragic. I'll take you through it in chronological order....

On Sunday Dec 15, Beth died very suddenly. It's thought that she died from complications from a c-section she had 10 days before. She had a baby girl, who she named Shelby. She also had a son, who is 6 years old.

Many years ago, we were staying at the Waldorf-Astoria in NYC. Listings of events scheduled in the hotel are prominently displayed on digital screens near the elevators and lobby. We noticed early one day that one of the events scheduled was a Canadian hockey dinner thingy. We really didn't think much of it since we'd never heard of the group. After returning from dinner that evening, we got in the elevator to go to our room and in the elevator was Scotty Bowman. My husband was standing next to a hockey legend. Holy cow.
This little encounter made us curious about where he was going. Ah - he must be going to this Canadian hockey thing. So we decide to do some snooping and went down to the ballroom where this event was. We turn the corner, and holy crap, there's the Stanley Cup in the lobby area of the ballroom!! And in the ballroom, seated at dinner and listening to THE Rocket Richard accepting an award, are probably 150 current and retired Canadian NHLplayers and coaches. And because the ballroom doors were open when we walked by them, every person in that room saw my husband freak. out.
To this day, my husband thinks that he had a missed opportunity to touch the Stanley Cup at the Waldorf Astoria in NYC . So, when the Cup came to Cincinnati for a minor league hockey game, you're darn skippy my husband was there. And so, last week, a wrong was righted. Thank the Lord.
