Dining on the road

Hi everyone,

On the road we spare no expense for dinner.


To market to market to buy something pretty

Hi everyone,

Jeff took this picture of Sandy in Las Vegas at the gift market. It’s his first time to go and one of the few times when I haven’t gone. Gift markets are grindingly hard. You are on your feet all day, in and out of showrooms that number in the hundreds or more (that’s not even the main building behind her in the picture), looking at thousands and thousands of gift products from all over the world, trying to decide which ones will go well in your store for your customers.

Sandy will be gone four nights. I spoke to her last night. We’d all watched the president’s address and they were about to head out for a late dinner. Before she left she stocked up on groceries. I could eat five meals a day and still have left overs.

Jeff’s photography

Hi everyone,

I take a lot of pictures and once in a while I get a decent one. Our son Jeff is the real photographer in the family. He probably takes twenty to every one of mine and has thousands on file. Here are some samples of his work.

Thank you, Jeff!

One more wave

Hi everyone,

In Ajo, Jeff and I looked in vain for the house I lived in when I started school. We decided that it has been torn down. In this picture of me waving to my mother on my first day of school, you can only see the houses across the street. We couldn’t find them either.1st-day-of-school-ajo-arizona We did find the second house I lived in though. Here I am waving in front of that house, both of us a bit worse for the wear since 1945.img_20170131_1631270911_resized
