David Roberts, with your lovely name you write lovely words.

How liberating that you will offer not advice but tenderness

to your beloved son and new daughter as they wed.

You do your family proud.

Another excellent substack sir. You do your family proud, and it would be so under either Flag of Roberts or Flag of Rottenberg. I have one quibble. Twas Popeye, not this "God" fellow who said, "I am what I am."

You have a point, although Popeye's ditty does reveal his name.

Well said. I love how our tribe is increasing!

My side of the family had relations named Block and Nathan. I consider both a wonderful connection.

Congratulations to all.

Love, Rona
