Grandpa Nardi gave me this horsie for Christmas, but it wouldn't fit in our condo in NY. I've gotten bigger since then, so now I am really good at riding fast on my pony when someone gets me up there! I started saying "pony" recently. Before that, I would call it "ponky" and Mom would have me say "pone" and then "e" and quickly repeat it, so it almost sounded like "pony", but then when she'd ask me again to say pony I would say "ponky" or "ponty". Trust me, it was very funny.

It's been a strange first month in Ohio - yes, we've been here a month!
A terribly horrible thing happened 10 days after we moved back (August 26, 2007). Mike's dad, Warren, had a heart attack while painting the porch and died. We cannot even imagine traveling all the way from NY with this news, so thank goodness we were already here. While death is always difficult, he wasn't even sick, so everyone was (is still) totally shocked. We certainly already miss him immensely, but I don't think anyone really feels that he is actually gone. He always said that he wanted to go the way his father had, so that at least is reassuring. We are so very happy and thankful that we are in town to help Jackie with everything. Warren was one of the sweetest, kindest, gentlest people on Earth, and we only hope to live a life of which he would be proud. God bless you Warren!
