Marvin, I just saw Vicki's celebration of life happened this Saturday. I'm sorry I  couldn't make it. I have been praying for you and the family. I didn't see Yvette's message (thanks Yvette for posting the information) but then ended up sick anyway. Praying for everyone in these changing months.

I hope this finds everyone tucked safely in at home. Now more than ever, reviewing my blessings helps keep me level: I have a warm home, full belly, and the ability to stay connected to my growing family and friends through technology:) I am most grateful for several events this month- the marriage of my youngest son and just a week ago, the safe arrival of my first grandbaby. Stay safe, Class of '74- we'll get through this!

Happy Birthday Chuck! We will have to have a celebration lunch once they let out of homes again!

As I went out to familiarize myself with my DSLR camera, I decided I had to revisit a favorite subject for those of us who took Mr. Ferlaak's Photography class.  Back then, I shot a picture with my dad's old 35mm camera, with had a manually cocking shutter.  The shutter and the film advance were separate knobs, allowing multiple exposure for special effect.  I got an "A" when I took a double exposure shot here at the Cedarhurst Mansion.

Nice pictures Steve. Thanks for sharing. I was never in the mansion.

Awhile ago, we looked at Cedarhurst for our daughter's wedding reception. It's beautiful inside with a lot of woodwork. Alas, it seemed a little confining. We ended up at the Machine Shed.

Steve, with all the scams for older citizens, are you posing as a realty agent? Will you be trying to sell us that mansion? My son and I just watched Upside with Kevin Hart. The sixteen year old liked the film so well he went upstairs to tell his mom. Fun movie if you get a chance. Also, on the creepy side, I have a recurrent dream about being in that mansion that I have had well over fifty years. I have never been in the mansion. The dream is a fun one though!

Hi Dave,
I trust all is well with you and the family.
FYI: I just found out that my neighbors are splitting up, she wants to go back to Germany where her elderly parents live. It looks like that house will be on the market, it's not a big house on 5 to 6 acres. They have their own carpentry business so it is a pretty nice downsize house.

Hope everyone had a great holiday yesterday! I enjoyed time with my family. Anyone do something extraordinary? This experience has been like practice-retirment for so many people. I failed. Anyone have a successful retirement? What did you do to accomplish it? Blessings!

Douglas Kladis

Sounds great, Doug!

Robert Ayre

Ha! Retired only means getting new tires! I can't sit still. So far spring/summer has been great. I have been out biking and kayaking a number of times. Besides no protests on the water and nothing to burn or loot. At the reunion we talked about getting together to go canoeing. I hope we can still do it.

Thanks Bob! Tippecanoe and Tyler too? Hope that doesn't 'Whig' you out. Anyone else concerned about the censorship of history? The soldiers at the time did not censor these POW's and yet, I think the people at the time were appalled (Think of the song, Praise God, and Pass the Ammunition). When I saw a picture of the two tombstones, I was shocked. They are among 140 for World War II POWs at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio, Texas, have a swastika inside a German cross and inscribed, “He died far from his home for the Führer, people, and fatherland.” Another gravestone in the military cemetery in Salt Lake City is marked with a swastika. Lots of trouble in this world; yet, when I saw this my stomach rolled. Then I thought, it is good to have that ugly pit in my stomach, reminding me of the darkest point in history and the people who made it that way.  I am not sure censoring history is such a good thing. Does anyone remember the “hippy” teachers that wanted to shock us little 7th graders in the fall of 1968? They prefaced the class movie with, “If you have to go to the bathroom, you don’t have to ask permission.” Then we watched the Nazi atrocities. Pretty tough to watch as a 12-year-old. We are now the older people, having lived some of the history that the kids are learning about. I am curious to hear from my classmates. Also, does anyone else enjoy looking at the dates of people we knew in the 1970’s and thinking about when they were born (i.e., 1880’s).

I am saddened that people think erasing history is the answer. We have allowed the news outlets to destroy our young people and some of us.  Along with so called teaching institutions. The more we have allowed our society to remove God from it, the crazier the world has become. I have lived in the Middle East and worked in other countries and can tell you we are still the best place in the world for freedom. But we are quickly giving it up. Sorry I needed to vent!

06/12/20 11:09 AM #1756    


David Frazer

Don't be sorry, Kevin. You didn't vent, you shared. We are in such a world that people express to me almost daily they are afraid of their voice being misunderstood or worse, censored. I think when I post... "did I put my foot in my mouth again?" I think the darkest country I have been in is Saudi Arabia... fear overrides the land. But I shared the truth anyway... because that is what we enjoy the most. That is what I enjoy about my God, He didn't make a robot (and the irony is, that is the biggest complaint people make about Him..."If He is God, why doesn't He force His will on us").  Say what you think! Allow others to speak. The truth wins in the end (Just might take time until heaven's door for someone to accept the truth) wink p.s. Thank you for your post!

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer! A third of the summer is almost gone! Where is that canoe/kayak trip?
