Gary , my email address will show on this send but I will list it , also.
Thought I might slip through the BD note net but thanks. My son’s Mom’s BD is
also October 20 but in 1948 not 1946 as is mine. Dean and Doc and Eric and his wife, Kim
each gave me a call. Last year Dean and Doc came to Dickinson to be with for a few days
during the days of my BD; best BD present—EVER.
The city judge who has been practicing law here for as long as I have been here, was also
born on October 20, 1946. When I first came to be the adm at the DNC, Bob was the guardian
for some bachelor farmers that needed to come to live at the home. I met him then and have personally benefited from his services over the years. He also assisted our residents
by serving as an attorney ab libitum to ensure correct procedures were followed in legal matters that he could help with.
I am certain that Bernadette is receiving the best and most willing care.
That is the email address have on file for you. Not sure where I got that other one from.

Joke of the day
Posted by Don Maleterre (’72): Siouxfalls, SD
Two couples were playing poker one evening. Jim went to the kitchen to get some refreshments, Lee’s wife, Sue, followed and asked, ‘Do you see anything that you like in there?’ Surprised by her boldness, Jim admitted that, he did. Sue said, ‘Well, you can have it but it will cost you $250.’ Jim confirms that he is very interested. Sue told him that since her husband Lee played golf Friday afternoons and Jim didn’t, Jim should be at her house around 2 p.m. Friday afternoon. When Friday rolled around, Jim showed up at Lee’s house at 2 pm sharp and after paying Sue the agreed sum they went to the bedroom, and she gave him a great time. Jim quickly dressed and left. As usual, Lee came home from golf at 6 p.m. and upon arriving, asked his wife: ‘Did Jim come by the house this afternoon?’ With a lump in her throat Sue answered, ‘Why yes, he did stop by for a few minutes this afternoon.’ Her heart nearly skipped a beat when her husband asked, ‘Did he give you $250? Sue, using her best poker face, replied, ‘Well, yes, in fact he did.’ Lee, with a satisfied look on his face, continued, ‘Good.
He came by the golf club this morning and borrowed $250 from me. He promised he’d stop by this afternoon and pay it back.’ Now THAT, my friends, is how poker should be played…
