Tragedy and Triumph

This is the Schneider-Farris Family's Blog. Keep up with what we are doing by logging into this site regularly! (The reason this site is called "Tragedy and Triumph" is that when I first founded this site, my husband, Dan, had been in a horrible accident, and he recovered. His recovery was a miracle! Go back to the 2005 archives to read our story.)

Happy Birthday Pat and Mike!

My husband has two identical twin brothers. Today was their birthday! I got them almost identicl presents! Pat's wife, Monica and my dad also helped them celebrate at Polly's Pies.  Dan called during our celebration which made it extra nice!

(Long ago, they had identical beards and it was impossible to tell them apart, but Mike has a longer beard than Pat, so now its easy to know which twin is which!)

Mike and Pat say that they are 37 with backward digits or almost 37 twice!....

What a place! is right next to where I grew up...
