No Posting yesterday.
For the record I did not get a blog posted yesterday.
33 years ago today, I married Bernadette, a very beautiful and loving gal both inside and out. My how the years have passed.
We were married in Our Saviors Lutheran church in Bremerton, WA. Dad’s brother Nels and his wife Helga were Bernadette’s stand in parents. They walked her down the Isle. My Parents along with Orvin Hagen came to Bremerton, via Amtrak, for our wedding. Following our wedding we had a reception at the Elks club. My parents rode with Nels and Helga from the Church to the Elks. Nels got lost, so they were a bit late getting to the reception.

Hi Gary,

What a surprise to open the Blog yesterday and find my sister, Jan … and then this morning, the Turtle Mountain Star article. Thanks for thinking of us … and thanks for keeping all of us connected with our friends and relatives at home and elsewhere on the planet.

With all the new technology regarding fertility recently, a
65-year-old friend of mine was able to give birth. When she was
discharged from the hospital and went home, I went to visit.

‘May I see the new baby?’ I asked

‘Not yet,’ She said ‘I’ll make coffee and we can visit for a while

Thirty minutes had passed, and I asked, ‘May I see the new baby now?’

‘No, not yet,’ She said.

After another few minutes had elapsed,

I asked again, ‘May I see the baby now?’

‘No, not yet,’ replied my friend.

Growing very impatient, I asked, ‘Well, when can I see the baby?’

‘WHEN HE CRIES!’ she told me.

‘WHEN HE CRIES?’ I demanded. ‘Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?’
