On April 17, Adrian and Cain called us at the office and told us a secret that we couldn’t tell anyone. She had just been to her doctor and got confirmation that she is expecting our first grandchild. She told a few family members and close friends. Due date is Nov. 28. She observed later

I have no doubt that summer heat is here. I got to enjoy it last Friday and Saturday working in the boathouse on a birthday present for Kimball. Monday evening after work the heat was even higher. I almost cooked. I was coveting every little breeze. I had to pace myself to keep from having
