It's official. Jon and Konnie are now engaged. He had his grandmother's ring reset and took Konnie on a picnic down at the river where the two of them fished a lot this summer. She's happy. He's happy. They were both so happy they cried. So then they called me and I cried.

Of course, I asked if Konnie had told him about the southern tradition.

"What tradition is that?" Jon asked.

"The one where you get me a ring just like the one you got her," I said. "It's an old tradition. Only true southeners practice it."

Jon laughed and said, "Big party next summer."

"Right," I said. 

Hold that Sept. date open. I'll let you know what it is as soon as I know.
