Busy day yesterday dealing with the banks and credit cards in the aftermath of our robbery the previous day. As the day went along we found many more things missing from the house: rugs, a floor lamp, coasters for glasses, a wooden figure, and a clock. The good news came in the evening that the culprits have been caught and our computers recovered. Hopefully we will get the other stuff back also.

Getting back to business:
  • If anyone knows any Hempstead descendants please pass on to them the following update on the Hempstead family reunion:

Dear Hempsted Descendants,

I'm SO sorry to do this, but after I sent my most recent message I received correspondence from our headquarters informing me of a conflict and the need to change the dates of the reunion. I know that some of you have already passed the word on to other relatives and I truly regret the need to change the date at this point. Some things can't be avoided though, so here's the update:

Our Hempsted family reunion will take place the weekend of 20 and 21 September, 2008, NOT the following weekend as originally planned. Please spread the word. Also please let folks know that if they want to be included on our email list for updates from the source here in New London
that they should feel free to write.

Once again I apologize for any inconvenience or confusion that this might have caused.

And so we move forward....
