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.

My neighbor, Connie Mayhew, took the picture. She was able to get quite close. Location is slightly to the right of the rainbow in the picture below. Barbary Sheep are ideally adapted to the desert and require no water other than the plants they eat. Neighboring ranch introduced these to their hunting preserve. They can jump six feet straight up from a standstill. They didn't stick around for the hunt. Our corner is posted:

NO HUNTING. ROFLMAO

Ankole-Watusi cattle. Neighboring ranch has a small herd. I restretched wire and replaced 12 posts in the 100 year old fence. I don't think I want to see one of these guys staring in my front door. Horns can reach up to 8 ft (2.4 m) from tip to tip.

SOPHIA LOREN CLEARING THE WAY TO THE WOOD PILE. She is always ten feet ahead of me and always on guard. She acts ferocious but has never bitten anyone or anything except snakes. She hunts them and bites their heads off. She has survived many rattlesnake bites thanks to annual vaccinations.
