Thanks for the birthday greetings. I had intended to spend the day with my mom at Good Samaritan in Bottineau. We were going to reminisce about the day I was born. She says she remembers it very clearly–as you know, she’s 94 years old, so she’s doing well. I found my “baby book” and was going to take it with me when I visited her. I had also planned to take my tape recorder, as I thought it might be a very interesting/informational visit. I’ll do it when I get back to Bottineau. I plan to stay in Minot for several days. I’m to call Dr. Swenson on Friday and report on my leg. He gave Celebrex to me to take (pain) for six days.
Wally/I and any of Wally’s family who don’t have other plans are going to eat out. The relatives had short notice, as I had planned to be in Bottineau for my birthday
I think you/Mel Kuhn have decided I’m 30–sounds good to me!! LOL!!
I see Debbie’s sister, Roberta Soland, passed away. I plan to locate her obituary (The funeral home’s URL is included in her obituary.) and send it. I don’t think I’ve sent it before, or have I?

Dick is right, I am the quiet ,shy type, and
I often stood off to one side and watched the other young fellows play in the puddles and the mud.
I stayed above the fray, and stayed cool, you know what I mean, kind of like the Fonz (Henry Winkler), from Happy Days
without the booster cable neck tie. However, I did eventually own a new $20.00 pair of black engineer boots that I bought at Hassen’s Store with money that I earned. That was about as close as I ever come to looking like the Fonz. They were a size to big, but I think someone convinced me that I would grow into them. I never did, but I wore them all the time anyway, until I wore them out. Some day I’ll have to buy another pair that fits. Maybe it was a good thing that I spent that summer working on my Uncles farm wearing them big clod hoppers.
That pictures of Dick on yesterdays blog amazed me. That was Dick Johnson!
I still can’t believe that the fellow on them pictures (Little Dick) is the same fellow we know now.
It is however, how I remember Dick, with black rimmed glasses, light colored hair with a heinie.
He definitely did stretch out after awhile, but I remember that he also kept the same look
for as long as I can remember. Then I saw him at one of the school reunions and saw that he had become his dad.
But for the longest time I often wondered what that Norwegian kid was doing sporting a German hair cut?
I was beginning to think that he must have been adopted?
I do what I can!
Everyone have a good day,

A guy goes to the bank to cash a check. He asks the young blonde
cashier if he can have all large bills. She replies, “I’m sorry sir
but all of our bills are the same size.”
