Folks, Something’s we take for granted and one of those is electric clocks. I have never seen an electric clock for sale in any of the stores here in the Philippines. This country has 220 volt electricty, so we had our house wired for both 110 & 220 volts when we had it built. We have several electric clocks that we brought from the states with us. The problem is they don’t keep good time. Some days they will gain as much as 5 minutes and other days day will loose as much as 5 minutes. In the USA they have true 60 cycle electricity. Here in the PI the eletricity is not true 60 cycle. Gary.
Condolences to Verena Gillis’ sister Dira’s family
From Ele Dietrich Slyter (69): Dunseith, ND
Just a quick note to offer our sympathy for Verena and family on the loss of Dira. I did not know her, but she must have been one very brave and wonderful lady to face the hardships of cancer. I especially liked the poem on her handout. Very well written and so very very touching.

Dick,Gary & Lola,

First my condolences to Verena and the whole family. It is never easy to lose a loved one. what a great poem to send her home. God’s Blessing to all of you.

Dick. You worry to much. ha ha I just had to remind everyone about the drummers being the heart beat of the band and pep band. ha Of course that was my favorite class of all time. Still today, music is in my blood and love listening to all kinds.

Lola. I do remember the fun we had during practices but always remember when it was time to be serious. Don would always give us that serious look and tell us thru that look that we better knock it off. ha It was great.

Dave Slyter (70)

HATS OFF to Devin Mellang. May God watch over him and all the other soldiers that are watching over us. They are the bravest of the brave . My heart and prayers are always with them and their families. I hope each and every American stands behind our soldiers they are doing their job and doing it very well.And bless all the old soldiers for all you have given to keep us free. If you see a soldier please stop and tell them thank you you can’t know how much it means to them. GOD BLESS YOU DEVIN.
