Kent I have known the Tanners for almost the entire time of our marriage. They lived just a few houses down the street from use while our husbands attended Midwestern Univerrsity, one in pharmaceutical and the other on PA (physicians assistant) school. Both Faye and I worked until we had our first child, hers a girl, mine a boy born within a month of each other and then graduation took our families n different directions. Since then they have travelled the world, living in stints in remote places in Alaska work indigent services, Saipan (a island north of Guam), China, Mississippi, etc. They've kept the house in AZ as a rental and come back on an off to prep it for the next renters. With such a tight schedule, we were lucky to spend sometime an evening with them to catch up on life.
The kids loved each other and had a blast playing, drawing, eating and talking silly with each other.
