Sort of going along with sort of the changed relationship, I think one that’s changed is the one with my sister. Because she’s an older sister and so, when I was growing up I felt like I had two and a half parents. And she’s good at music, and she did piano, violin. She was in the Iowa Highland Pipes–it was her and a bunch of people our dad’s age. When I was older I started being more competitive, and now I think she’s probably my best friend and is supportive of me. She’s watched a couple of our practices when she’s been in town.
[So sisters and brothers can be, can turn out to be best friends. Did you kids understand what David said about how he had two and a half parents, and what he meant?]
* When his sister knew that his parents were expecting another child, Betsy said, that’s his sister, “It’s going to be a boy and his name is such-and-such.” And that’s what they named him.
[Luckily you turned out to be a boy!]
