Now that my son has officially made his announcement through his social media network, I can also add my heartfelt congratulations to Josh and Charline on my blog. I know many of you who follow me here might not yet have heard the news.

They announced their engagement a little over a week ago. They told us late on Saturday evening. My wife found out just beforehand by her eagle eye. As the newly engaged couple entered our home, they were welcomed by Tabby, our golden retriever. And golden retrievers, as most would know, require humans to pet them. If a human foolishly fails to comply, they simply nudge the human into submission. Resisting a golden’s desire for affection is futile.

Charline, knowing full well that she would not be able to overcome Tabby’s charms, leaned over to pet her head. In so doing, Lorraine saw the ring on her hand. Lorraine leaned over to me and said “They are engaged!”

And they are. It looks as though the big day will take place on August 17th. This wonderful couple is busily making all sorts of plans.

I am so happy for them.

    Congratulations to the Cleaver family….looking back at some recent posts (Josh’s birthday, looking down, lighting the cupcakes) all I can say is “Man, he is looking a lot like you, Richard”.

    To which you reply “Yes, he’s a handsome devil” 🙂

    All the best, Rob
