Comments about life and living

I managed to remain a bachelor until I was 33 and had four boys by the time I was 34. The marriage didn't last long but it is difficult to divorce the children. They are our greatest joy. Their deaths are the most devastating experience in life. Others in our class have lost children and all of us have lost people who left giant holes in our souls/hearts/lives. They are never really out of our thoughts. Sometimes they are even more pervasively present. Yes mother.

I have lived in New Mexico for the last 35 years minus a nine year exodus to East Lansing.

I live a very private and sequestered life. I continue to work on building a house. Located at the end of the road, 3.5 miles from pavement and 7 miles from the last utilities on a road that challenges the most aggressive 4 X 4 in bad weather, and slows the process. I look forward to getting the table saw out of the kitchen.

Living off grid comfortably requires a bit more effort but the bonuses make it worthwhile. No power failures unless the Sun doesn't shine(rare).

More later perhaps. Enjoy yourselves at the reunion. I will not be there. You are all welcome to contact and/or visit when you are in New Mexico

School Stories

Joy Clemow's frown when I walked into typing class. I think there were four boys. Who were you? Total blank? Guertin? Baker? Breckenfeld?

Who was it that typed 160 words per minute(WPM) with no errors? The only neurons penetrating the amyloid plaques is JoAnne Burr. Was that you? Watching you type was like watching a highly trained world class athlete. If not you, who was it?

I managed 120WPM with three errors on an IBM Selectric. Mrs Clemow stlll frowned but there was still a perceptible softening around the eyes. Three errors was still not good enough. I was hopeless on a manual.

Probably the most enduring and useful skill learned at OHS. I loved the first IBM PSII with Word Perfect installed that I used. The biggest advance in word processing since Johannes Gutenberg invented movable type. Even better, I could type faster than the computer could post the words on the monitor.

Heyyo Rod, Nice update on the website. The back road between Santa Fe and Albuquerque is called the Turquoise Trail. Cerrillos Turquoise has been found throughout the the Americas in archaeologic digs dating to back as far as 600BC in Ocatlan, Mexico.

Tx for your b-day thoughts. Foolishness is my birthright.

Heyyo Vicky, It has been a long time since Newport and daunting to think of the worlds we have crossed in the interim. Great to be in touch.
