Good day, everyone. Wally J here. Or, as Grandpa likes to call me, Wallybanger. As many of you know, Wilbur left all of us on the morning of Tuesday, March 30, 2004. Apparently, the love that only he and he alone can give was needed in a higher place. (And who are we to question a calling from above?)
Mom knew I was forlorn and lost without my brother. And she didn't waste any time in finding me a new sibling. By Saturday of that week we were on our way to Kingsburg (about a half hour south of Fresno), where a nice lady at PROUD (Pet Rescue Of Unwanted Dogs) had more than 130 dogs up for adoption. We knew we would come home with a new playmate for me. I knew the one I wanted right away, but it took Mom and Dad another 30 minutes before they figured it out.
So, meet my new sister, Wednesday.
I know, unique name, but Dad has a thing for W's so he can refer to the other three people who live here as www for Wubbers, Wally and Wednesday, and Mom has a thing for the Addams family. And by the time Grandpa put in his two cents, he was calling her Missy; Mom and Dad shortened it to Miss, as a title.
The photos at the top of this page are the ones we have taken so far, but Mom and Dad plan to add more pages with photos in the near future, so please check back here regularly. Until then, I wish you a happy day.
Oh, and one more thing, Mom's and Dad's website. It's called "Amy & Greg: A Story of Love" and includes their wedding video as well as commentary on the website about each "chapter" by Dad. I think you'll like it.
Until next time, please email me if you have the time. (I love email.)
All my love,
