Aside from Donald, these are all the Boyers you’ll ever need to know. Meet my fabulous family — Stan (the man), Ann, and Casey.
This story seems, at first, kind of self-serving.
Except it’s not.
I’ve never been a huge genealogy person. I know what I know, and that’s enough.
Maybe I’m scared what a little research might reveal. Maybe I’ll find out some of my relatives were heinous criminals or total weirdo losers.
Or maybe I just don’t care all that much.

Designer tots at the Left Bank in York, Pa.
I wrote a story about tater tots the other week, just because.
Philip Given, who is mentioned in the story, suggested the tot angle months ago.
