Comments: Decided it was time to add my info to this site. I have been married to Elmer for almost 39 years. We have 3 daughters, Deanna, Sheri and Janis, and 1 son, Danny. After almost 8 years with just one grandchild, we will add 3 in less than 9 months. I work part-time at Peoria Stockyards (No I dont slaughter the animals. I was actually asked this.) and Elmer farms. He is retirement age but farmers dont retire. I belong to the famous (infamous?) '65 Ladies Card Club and we meet once a month for fun more than cards, and some of them still call me Frenchie.

Comments: A lot has changed since the last update. My wife Michele and I added two more children to our brood of six and 2 more grandchildren leaving a total of 8 children and 7 grandchildren Still think we should have had these first).

We built a new house right behind the old one this year as the old one lost large chunks in a tornado July 13, 2004. There is also a new barn for the goats, a new shop, new clothes, new car, new...well I think you get the idea. It's one way to spend the children'sáinheritance.

The two additions to our family are two wonderful special needs children we are adopting. One is four and one is six. It's a sure way to keep young I've heard? Of course it helps that they can't run. We like to go camping. We don't rough anymore with a travel trailer and air. I roughed it enough in the Air National Guard. Out of the grown children one is in Seattle, one is in Fullerton, Ca. and the others live in Benson, Springfield, Sparland and Peoria. We still áhave a couple of pets. Jake a Lhaso Ahpso and a cat named Twinkle (I ádidn't pick that one out). I probably won't make the reunion this year as áthere's a lot to get done before the snow flies but stop by anytime. It's áthe new house just east of Parson's.
