    Just have to share!

    An uncle of mine worked for a Texas newspaper for many years. He also wrote several books. I had copies of all of them but lost one when I moved to Illinois so I found it on Amazon and bought it. It arrived yesterday from DeSota, Texas. Inside it was inscribed like this: "12/25/67..... Dear Mary and Bill, Just a little something for you to read if your color TV goes on the blink! Love, GB"! Outside of our family no one called him anything but "George"! My parents (lifelong Texans) were "Mary and Bill". I think I somehow got the book that he gave my parents for Christmas all those years ago. I simply had to share this with someone!!!!

    That sounds like one of the "His Mysterious Ways" articles from Guideposts magazine!
