Wendy and James had told us of the wonderful Veteran's Memorial on the main drag in Circleville that had Christopher's dad's name spelled wrong....
So who is right? Just kidding, we know it is STAPEL! Too bad no one checked the spelling before they carved it in to stone.
When Rylie was little and learning how to spell her last name, she would argue with me about how it was spelled. She would be so serious and tell me- "No, that's not it. My teacher told me it is S T A P L E S!"
Since our arrival in Rich County we have been Staple and Staples. Finally after 11 years here people are getting it right.
