We spent four happy days with my brother and his family from Oklahoma City here this week. It was great to see how my dad perked up while he was here, because it was nonstop action with three growing boys in the house. Family medicine can be the best kind. It will be sad to see them go but we are hoping that holiday time might bring them back. I'm already starting my letter, "Dear Santa, Please send that cute white van this way in December. I promise I will be good . . . ."
