Great Christmas Gift
« on: Thursday 25 December 08 14:41 GMT (UK) »
Good Morning!!

I woke up this Christmas morning and checked my email and low and behold there was an email from someone on my Shorter side.  I was so excited, I have only ever made 1 other contact.   I have been trying for years to connect with someone in this line.  My gr grandfather had 12 brothers and sisters so I figured surely there must be someone out there.

Was a great surprise for me this morning.
