My daughter Sue put together the composite pictures below of our kids and our grandkids.
Sue is the one with four kids; Sally is the one with five kids; and Tomis the one with three kids.
My favorite is the picture of me and Mary and our three kids, their spouses, and their kids.

Alex Morris '56, son of the late Cdr. Morris USN who headed the Chiefs Band at USNA (and lived right across the street from Gate 2, was in my 2nd Co. We communicate every now and then. He sent the following by a cute and very young girl:

Since Valentine's Day is For a Christian saint and we're Jewish," she asks,
"Will God get mad at me for Giving someone a valentine?
Thelma's father thinks a Bit then says "No, I don't think God would get mad.
Who do you want to give a Valentine to?"
"The whole ISIS Group," she says.
"Why them?," her father Asks in shock.
"Well," she says, "I Thought that if a little American Jewish girl could have
Enough Love to give them a Valentine, they might start to think that maybe we're not
All Bad, and maybe start loving People a little bit. And if other kids saw what I
Did And then they sent Valentines to them, they'd love everyone a lot."
"And then they'd start Going all over the place telling everyone how much they
Loved them and how they Didn't hate anyone anymore."
Her father's heart swells And he looks at his daughter with new found pride.
"Thelma, that's the most Wonderful thing I've ever heard. "
"I know," Thelma says, "and Once that gets them out in the open,
the Marines Could blow the crap out of Them."

When we moved up to Bosque Farms from Roswell, the local Farmers Market allowed us to take all the apple boxes we wanted. They were just the right size and all had lids. We packed our small things in these boxes and were ready for our son's help renting a U-Haul truck one Saturday morning at 0730. With the help of about 6 young men we had the 28 foot truck loaded by 1230 and were in Bosque Farms by 1600 the same day.(217 miles). It was a fantastic operation and went very smoothly. Those boxes were a life-saver that made the loading much easier. One of the boxes even had two fresh apples that the stocker failed to remove.

Lach- that should ease the change stress a bit. Good luck on your move - make it easy and move as slow or as fast as you feel like it.

You worry about selling your house a you prepare to move to a Retirement facility. You price it higher than the market prepared to give a little. Lo and behold the first couple who walks in the door makes an offer you can't refuse! Way above list. Angst over, time to get ready to move.

Things are pretty lively around our house at the moment, with the arrival of our daughter Sue, her husband Gerry, and their four kids for a nice visit. (Sue and the kids will be here with us for five weeks).

Who is interloper Annie who dares to sell on this Class of 1954 Restricted Log? Does she not know that we of an older generation retain a sense of decorum with old school manners and customarily do not intrude on others unless invited?

Williams, William R. '54 Non-Grad received an Honorable Discharge from USNA on 2 June 1950. We have received notice of his death on 1 June 2017. If anyone knows what company he was in, please notify me so I can update the memorial listing for our 65th reunion.

Leela James will deliver sounds from her new album, as effectively as music from her existing catalogue, to the ESSENCE Fest Superlounge stage.

Thomas Jefferson once said: "The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do." WELL! What did he know? He wrote a very long Declaration of independence draft, and Congress cut it down by about a third! :-) When I find myself editing something I wrote, I always end up with MORE words than less. I obviously do not follow Jefferson or that wise saying that was frequently used in the Marines -- KISS! (Keep It Simple, Stupid!)

Ebba always claims I am a man of few words - so I was happy when the pastor this morning pointed out that the average number of words spoken by a person per day is 7,000. So much for your theory, Ebba! Ed and Bill, I am sure your have broken that average several times over! Hope you all are enjoying your loquacious father's day.
