Throwing Out the First Pitch


Here is a picture of me throwing out the first pitch at a Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs

Let's Go to Alaska!

Las Vegas and headed for Alaska.  That's me aboard ship leaving Seattle

(still warm-ish, still in a t-shirt).  



Here is my grandson and me closing in on a glacier (traded t-shirt for sweatshirt, gloves and parka).



Next is the tale of the tail of a whale - actually many whales; we saw 11 of

them one day.  They are so beautiful, such fun.


Here is our son Scott with cell phone glued to his ear at Buschart Gardens

in Victoria.  We loved Juneau, especially the majestic eagles soaring all over

the place, and we waved to Sarah Palin's house as we drove past it. I think

we might have spotted her hanging out laundry in her back yard.  Well,

maybe not. I thought about "jumping ship" in the wonderful little town of

Skagway with its 700, or so, residents.  It was a great trip!

A Tribute to a Classmate

I went to Our Lady Star of the Sea, ACHS, and Trenton State College with Jackie Kartzmark. She and her parents were refugees from war-torn Germany, and came to the US around 1950. That was the Jackie who entered Sister Joseph's 5th grade at OLSS with Jeanette Norton, Stella M'Lady,  and me. This is our graduation pic from OLSS in 1954: Jackie is in the 3rd row, 2nd from the right. Stella and Jeanette can be seen on the left. Hard to believe Jackie is gone: she was the nicest kid.
