Today I chatted with Marvin Oliver Webb, our Family Historian.  He is now at home recovering from minor injuries suffered in an automobile accident late last week.  He says he has felt better, no bones broken but has a lot of bruising.  It would be well if we all could send him a get well card while he recovers from his injuries.
