This weekend was the celebration of Stafford's 125th birthday. When Stafford celebrated its centennial in 1985, one feature was collecting items for a time capsule that was to be opened in 2010. The centennial was celebrated Labor Day weekend in 1985. I was 8 1/2 months pregnant at the time.
We all knew that Randy's mom, Marie, had put something in the time capsule for the first Fritzemeier grandchild. Back then, it wasn't all that common for expectant parents to know the gender of their baby. And, while some people did have that second sonogram later in the pregnancy, we wouldn't have wanted to know anyway.
