  • A engagement announcement: Studer-Baker

    This scan of an engagement announcement was sent to me by another local SDC member. It was in a Rhode Island newspaper recently. I wonder if she'll use the hyphenated name after the wedding? I know it's the beginning of April, but this one is real. They're even registered at Bloomingdale's wedding gift list.

      Close, Don...except when Purdue is playing Notre Dame. BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

          Who'd a thought that was possible? I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it. I'm sure they take some good-natured kidding.

              My wife & I both got a laugh out of this. Our 5 year old grandson pronounces "the name" that way!!

                If there's anyone in the area with a decent Stude, we should volunteer to drive as their getaway car at the wedding.

                  Jay Leno would "get it", but his viewers might not.
                  Definately should see if they want a real STUDEBAKER in their wedding. If I were only closer.
