The big news this Labor Day 2014 weekend was that my niece Jackie’s boyfriend Ben proposed her while on military leave. The announcement made for big excitement and the thought of another family wedding. Long time My Desultory Blog followers (those who follow the personal and family posts) might remember Jax from events like her high school graduation in 2007. My son’s big concern was that with his cousin receiving a ring, that “the torch has been passed.” Speaking of rings, Ben proposed with the ring her late father (Mark Howard) gave to her mother Lynda. Very nice.
