Not exactly family news, but gratifying nonetheless: I finally found a long-sought album of Jamaican songs last night on iTunes. Grannie Crosswell sent the album to us when we were small children, and we wore it out. Literally. Until the vinyl disk was too scratched to listen to and finally cracked. Over the years, I've been trying to find another copy, to no avail. I couldn't remember the artist's name, and no one else could recollect it, either. But - now I've got the entire album downloaded, and am planning to burn it to CD and give a copy to Mom for Christmas.
