John and Marilyn Williams qualify as a very special house staff. They
tend to every challenge that Dr. Stead brings to each new day. Dr. Stead
has located his "local" house staff in the guest house he built 20
years ago at the lake. This definitely qualifies them as house staff.
Here is the first of several "steadisms" from these two special house
About a year ago, I went down to the Steads just before dinner and he was
taking a dish out of the refrigerator. Keep in mind that neither family
nor John nor I will eat anything that he prepares or especially keeps for any
length of time and Dr. Stead is very aware of how we all feel.
As he removed the dish from the refrigerator, he said "I really didn't think
that this needed refrigeration but I put it there since you all think that it
should be refrigerated". I said "getting wise in your old age?" and his
answer was "no, just appeasing the ignorant."
Don't know if you can use this or not but it was a good laugh for all of us.
