Highway 14 Mile 289

Char and I just returned from a road trip. Like most of our trips it was full of memorable moments. The most memorable moment of this trip happened in South Dakota on highway 14 at mile marker 289. That’s where we found out we were going to be grandparents – again.

Char answered her cell phone and the conversation went something like this:

Tiffany: Mom, do you have a speaker phone?
Char: Yes.
Tiffany: Do you know how to use it?
Char: Yes.
Tiffany: Can you put us on speaker phone?

Char put the phone on speaker and Tiffany then told us she was pregnant.

A short time later Char sent them a text message which read, “Dad is driving erratically and is talking about putting the van in a ditch.” Actually, we were both pretty happy and excited for Tiffany and Jason – and us.

They were sure brave to give you that news while you were in a moving vehicle. Congratulations!

Ralphette? Hahahaha....Can you imagine!!

How do you spell Ralphalene? That covers you and Char both!

If she is named Ralphalene
Maybe she'll own some Valvolines!

If Tiff has a boy they can use that name as well. Hey, I think I've come up with a good idea! Do you think Tiff and Jason will like it?

Thanks everyone. We are very excited. And I think we will pass on Ralphette and Ralphalene, but I will run them both by Jason.

Thanks to all. I think we will probably pass on Ralphette and Ralphalene, but I will run them both by Jason and see what he says
