Apache Gold ... San Carlos, Arizona .... hunkered down at the Indian Rez outside of Globe after a very lonnnnng day. It started out okay, the first hour, and then when I unplugged the electricity there was NO 12-Volt! Won't bore you with the details, but I did have a previous appointment at Dillon's RV Repair in Apache Junction (on 60 east of Phoenix) for a toilet repair (the flushing mechanism.) So I arrived at 9:30 a.m. and left at 4 p.m., twiddling my thumbs all that time waiting, and waiting and waiting for parts, etc. The no 12-volt was a bad breaker. That got fixed and the toilet works like brand new. So I finally feel like I'ma headin' home. To relieve the stress I ate a whole carton of Haagen Dazs ... well, almost. It's time to post pictures.

My Baby Sister Sue celebrated her 70th birthday on Tuesday. I sent her the tulips because she deserves them and because I thought it might help take her mind off "the big" birthday. Isn't she gorgeous?



In March Sue's grandson, Brandon Tiago, went into the Marines. His Grandpa and Sue's first husband, Joe Tiago, Jr., was a General in the USMC. General Joe had a massive heart attack in 1979 and is no longer with us on this plane. Brandon is the first child of any of our children or grandchildren to go into the military.

Here's Sue, Lori, her daughter and Brandon's mom, the Hunk, and his Great Grandma Zeta (Sue's and my mom, age 95).



She's really a Great Great Grandma because of the twins, Sophia and Brent, down my line. And here they are last summer down at the farm. I just love to show them off, wouldn't you?



Well, that's 30 for today. G'nite.

Hi - we enjoy your website and check on you often... hang in there! I've been working in the computer/internetworking field for Bank of America/EDS for the last 20+ years and I've learned that tech stuff frequently fails when needed most.

I wonder if you could tell me the origin of the expression you used: "That's 30 for today". I have tried for years to find the answer. Thank you so much.
