Thanks for the heads up on Mrs. Williams' book, Kathy. I had no idea of its existence until I saw this thread - definitely going to snag a copy. Sounds like a good read 8)

Yes, get a copy I found mine on Amazon. I've enjoyed reading about Mrs. William's life in Japan pre-WWII. I had no idea. And I was very suprised to learn that sweet potatos are a popular dish there. I thought only popular in the US. She was quite a lady. Very ahead of her time. Even as a young girl.
When she came to the US after Jake was grown she learned Country Line Dancing...
The way I found it, I just started reading old post here came across one dated 2010 about it. The book was published in 2001. And the stories I have shared, I've tried to be respectful to Mr. and Mrs. Williams, Jade and Jake. There is some personal stuff in there Jake may not want written about here. Hell, he may not give a shit. But, Jade might or she might not. I didnt want to take a chance in offending them.

Did Jake really sponsore a race car in the Cystic Fibrosis 500 Sim's Race in 2006? I read a old post about and wonder if it really took place. It was posted by Yankee he said he was the driver!! If so, Cool.

Here's the last post Im making from Mrs. Williams book:

Jake's sister Susan was a very tallented ballet dancer. One year, for a tallent show, Jake played Mozarts "Minuet" while Susan did a toe dance.

Jake took piano for 10 years. His last piano recital, was when Jake was in the 9th grade, around 14 years of age. He played Beethoven's Sonta Pathetique so beautifully, his piano teacher told the audience that selection was mostly played by college students, as graduation exercises. And Jake out preformed them. This was his last recital. His mother was so proud of both of her classical trained children.

She did say since the time Jake could hold a pencil he was always drawing something. And his kindergarden teacher told Mrs. Williams, Jake's level of paintings were at a 3rd or 4th grade level. He liked to paint war pictures and forest monsters. Mrs. Williams tried to mail order art instructions for him but they did not make them for someone so young.

Wonder if he still paints or draws in his free time...This is a very tallented man!! 8)
