Several months ago, Lenny asked us for The Lovely Lisa's hand in marriage. We happily said yes as Lisa is so in love and so happy. If we could have hand-picked a husband for Lisa, we could have never found a man more perfect for her. They are in their 30's - not love-struck teens. They have their heads on straight, college degrees, successful careers, and have close relationships with loving and supportive family and friends. Lenny and Lisa love each other and have committed to building a life together.
And they are going to have a baby. In August.
Yes, Dear Readers, we are going to be grandparents... which found us in Los Angeles tonight for a surprise engagement dinner, arranged by Lenny and Lisa's friend, Angela. Photo by Angela
Lisa was truly surprised to find 26 people waiting for them at Barbrix Restaurant in Silver Lake! Lenny's parents flew in from their home in Washington, DC. for the dinner, Lenny's sister and her boyfriend (they live in LA) were there and to everyone's surprise - including Lenny - his brother flew in from London!Lenny's parents - Terry & Stephen. How fun that both Moms are named Terry! Lisa's parents: DT and Terry

Two families are joining and Lisa & Lenny are living their lives at warp-speed. It is going to be a very exciting year.DT, me, Lenny, Eli (Lenny's little brother), Colleen (Lenny's little sister), Steve

And so begins a new chapter in our family history! A new son-in-law and a grandchild! How this tale will play-out will not be my tale to tell. The story will be Lisa and Lenny's. I will certainly be there, camera-in-hand, watching this new family grow.
And, one more thing - it's a boy!
Until my next update, I remain, your flossing correspondent.
