Beddie byes for me.
... as a liaison with the House of Representatives and Rebecca is a dentist in Virginia Beach. High school sweethearts from Martinsburg, WV (an area where some of my kinfolk left to move to KY in 1799), they were a delightful young couple. We enjoyed dinner with our three new friends at a local taverna. Great conversation and a few glasses of wine.
