Hmmm, family history research can bring up some interesting questions, such as: If my husband's name is MISSPELLED on our marriage certificate (not to mention the date of the marriage license is wrong on the certificate), does this in any way affect the validity of the marriage??? We never received a certified copy from the state, and today while doing family history online, I decided to see if our certificate was on the online database. It was, kind of. I recognized all of the information, except for the spelling of my husband's last name and the date of the marriage license (the marriage date was correct). I'm not seriously doubting whether or not we are legally married, but I can sure understand how genealogy records can be just plain wrong sometimes. I should probably call and see if we can correct it, but I'm afraid we might be WAY past the statute of limitations!
Have you ever needed crutches? I hadn't, until a week ago. I'm pretty sure I strained a muscle while running a half-marathon. (That sounds kind of cool, doesn't it? I'm not actually that cool; the last time I strained a muscle it was from carrying too many shopping bags at once.) In any case, I found myself in need of some crutches. I sent my husband to the store to get some.

I shouldn't have worried. John came home from Walmart with their generic store brand of crutches, complete with instructions. First, I needed to take out a long bolt that went through the hand grip. Then I needed to find my height range, push down two metal pieces, and slide the crutches until the little metal pieces came up in the hole near my height range. (Having two people for this
