Himself: Made his day go very smoothly, uploaded pictures first and multitasked to cut the work time in half. Came home full of good cheer. Flannel sheets and too small quilt, but we slept great.
Herself: with the quilt blog too: Swam, home to find whole house picked up, bed made, lunch made and waiting, plus the dishes were done. It was a great day thanks to G. I really dented the books and donations at the shop. Dinner salad, began reading Foote’s three volume “narrative” of the civil war.
My Babylonian Captivity: Chapter November 1 through November 7: Do stop in and read Tugster's experience as a human shield. He writes that, “ i was captured in kuwait (where i was teaching in the kuwaiti air force)….”
Carnival Splendor News: A link to today's News articles from our local paper: One woman arrested, and local economy benefits from disaster.
I’ve finished scanning the pictures of my father. On this page there seems to be an anomaly. In pictures, Gunny moves from Boy Scout to college with no record of the high school years. Something happened, and there are no words to explain the gap.
He graduated grade school in Seattle. I have his paper that says this. Nothing from his high school years at all. “Oakland” it says on the top of the page. I know that grandpa taught at Mills College, did he also teach at UC Berkeley? Gunny attended Berkley, and in the shot at the tennis court it clearly says Women’s PE. Grandma said there were no courts for men in those days. He had to sneak in with his friends to play.
He was good on the courts. He liked to fence too until tennis elbow shut him down. He had allergies, and his learning disabilities were so bad that his father wrote a book about how to learn. Hard won information learned getting Gunny through school but what schools?
