When my wife Pam recently told me she wasn’t intimidated by not learning much in college because she only went for one reason–to marry a good, Christian man, I reminded her that she got part of her wish–a man.


Checked out one on line Anch weather "prognastycation" and discovered snow every day until March 1, except next Monday which calls for sunny weather. Otherwise we’re looking at 20’s to 40’s till the end of the month. So, I was quite surprised to awaken to 8 inches of snow today. Hmmmm. It’s around 30 so not much of seeing it leave any time soon.

Love IS Blind

That "blind" girl I wrote about yest is alive and well, even after agreeing to marry me August 28, 1964. She has adjusted and survived 52-plus years trying to house break me. I think in another 50 she will have succeeded. Happy Valentine’s Day, Pamela Diane.

Love is Blind

I told my students I couldn’t find a girl to date me in college so I went down the street to a school for the blind, found and dated a beautiful girl then married. Saved my money for an operation so she’d regain her sight; it worked. Then she asked me to save money for another operation to have her sight reversed. Just kidding. She married me with eyes wide open and it was my total blessing.+


Off to gym at 9ish, set up volleyball nets and played 3 on 3 till 11:45. Awesome workout. Still able to stumble around and pretend I know what I’m doing. Refreshing to be out in zero to degree weather. Warming in next few days. Feeling sorry for those in snow slammed-rain areas, like the Grand Ronde River I fished for steelhead in high school.
