Hope all is well with you as you gain another year above ground. It would be great to have all us "northsiders" back together again for one last hurrah. Happy Birthday!

Re: the (Belated) 80th Birthday Party

More…had really  planned to be there, but flying with the covid will not be possible. I had planned to see my brother in Hamel and other child hood friends. Disappointment runs high. 


 I have enjoyed the class updates, but I have never figured out how to respond.


My husband of 60 years passed April  8, 2020, and my eldest daughter June 28, 2020, so the family and I have been adjusting as best we can. 


Tucson in the cooler weather is a great place and my guest house is always open to The Greatest Generation. We had the unheard of 5 inches of rainfall: roof leaked, California pepper tree lost a limb and broke a window. My 4 tanks of water from roof water now contain 4,000 gallons of water.  My sciatica keeps me from doing the Lindy, but everything else is in good shape. 


We also will have a VRBO close to U of A campus when daughter Marion returns to Amazon in Seattle. 


I am learning to live like a LOL(little old lady) which requires daily activities and socialization. Yesterday it was the grocery store for the activity and the socialization was with a LOG(little old gentleman) conversing over what is the best chip to buy. I plan to upgrade my activities and socializations.


Stay well, and thanks to you and the others who keep the SLP alive.

I send my warmest best to all,

Karen Schodde Woods

Karen, I loved you post. So good to remember you as a energized, positive girl. Can't even imagine you as a LOL. I'm so sorry @your losses this year. My dear one left us in October. I sold our home...too big to be alone. I live in a Senior Apt and like it very much. I garden the courtyard with lg.pots of flowers and play Bridge too. Have my dog too, so good incentive to walk the neighborhood. Still see
my neighbors of years out for lunch. Yup! Socialization is necessary. I can't go to MN either. Next week kids are gathering at Beach house to memorialize "Honey, Dad, Papa". Take good care, Karen. Mary

When I entered the fifth grade at Fern Hill School in St. Louis Park, the first classmate I met was Donnie Andersen.  He actually lived right next door to the school on 28th St.  I will never forget how friendly he was and how he made me feel welcome to the neighborhood almost immediately.  We became friends and spent many hours talking about baseball, especially about the Minneapolis Millers, the Triple A team in Mpls. at the time.  We also spent a lot of time on the softball field in the school yard.  Our interests diverged somewhat as we grew older, and the friendship wasn't especially close in later years, but I will never forget his kindness during those years at Fern Hill.

Happy Birthday in advance! Enjoy your favorite thing!
