OT: I'm going on vacation

It’s time for my annual trip to the German Shorthaired Pointer Club of America national specialty (a dog show for just one breed of dogs.) The dog show this year is in York, PA. This year the trip will conclude with an unusual visit on the way home.

I’ve always known that I was adopted. I grew up as an only child. After a little research I found my birth mother’s obituary last fall. It turns out that I have 7 brothers (one deceased) and a sister. All of them seem to live just East of Columbus, OH. My route home goes right through there. So I’m going to dinner with as many of the family as they round up.

It should be interesting.

Marty enjoy your trip and I hope you have a good time with your family.

Hope you do well at the dog show & have great experience with your long but now not lost family. Be sure to take some extra hog gear to hand out, lol.
Cheers have fun

Enjoy the show and the visit with your new found siblings.


Got to love it. Have a great time and a safe trip.

Hope you have another little trip in June!

That’s awesome! Have a great time!

That’s wonderful news. I can only imagine the nerves that you will have to overcome. I pray it’s a joyous time for you and your family.
