Well...As you can see... I am sad... My idea for blog post with little news items from the family didn't seem to go over very well... I only got a couple of submissions.
I am posting what I have gotten now... and will add more as they come in.
Thanks to those of you who I heard from.

Cousin Ron and Sharry Reher from Gig Harbor, WA, took a 3-week cruise/land trip to Australia and New Zealand in January 2008. They discovered that New Zealand is a beautiful country where, surprisingly, the American dollar is worth more than the New Zealand dollar. In May they visited Ron's sister Sylvia Peters and her husband, Ralph, in Henderson, NE; Juleen Reher, Ron's aunt, also in Henderson; cousin Jodi Govig in York; and cousin Jerri Haussler in Hastings.
Edward & Hedwig's youngest daughter, Caroline and her husband Joe Ruzicka, just got back from a two week trip to Germany where they attended a family reunion of relatives on Hedwig's side of the family. The trip was also taken to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary which is September 28th.
