Mothers Day 2014

Mothers Day 2014

For Mother’s Day Susan, Ann and I took Mother and Dad out to Adrian’s at the Airport for dinner. It is getting pretty difficult for them to get around but they enjoy getting out.  We brought Mom red roses and a neat card with singing hamsters (really!) to wish her a...
Sam and Nico’s Birthday 2014

Sam and Nico’s Birthday 2014

Sam’s birthday is 26 April and Nico’s is 23 May. Nonna has wanted to get them together for a combined birthday party because the kids are so busy and we seldom see them (at least not as much as we would like). So she was finally able to get a dinner arranged for...
Grandpa’s Journal and Logbooks

Grandpa’s Journal and Logbooks

Today I have begun to post pictures and pages from Grandpa Bill’s Journal and log books he kept for me during his war. The pictures I am finding where I can to illustrate the text.  October 14, 1942 is the date on page 1. A long time ago. Everyone in the family should...
Christina’s 51st Birthday

Christina’s 51st Birthday

Saturday we went out to my Mom and Dad’s to make sure they had a good supper while Ann is away in Disneyland with Bob and his family. And afterwards we went over to Joe and Christina’s for dinner. It was Christina’s 51st birthday. Nothing fancy, just a wonderful...

A New Website

For some time I have not been happy with the layout of this website. Last December I decided to do something about it and over Christmas chose a new theme. And that is when the trouble started. First off, the new website would not work properly. It had certain...
Aunt Katherine

Aunt Katherine

I think that most of my children know little of our Aunt Katherine and I am certain that their children know nothing of her. She was Grandpa Bill’s sister and a part of my early life. I was reminder of her recently when her daughter, Malia, contacted me. I had lost...

A Wedding in Cuba

It happened this way: Joe’s sister’s son wanted to get married in Cuba. A destination wedding it was to be. Joe suggested that Susan and I come and Katie and Jimmy were interested as well. The package tour was very reasonable for 7 days in Varadero, Cuba, all...

Christmas 2013

Well, this year I’ve been a bit of a Grinch. We didn’t decorate the house, we had no tree, we didn’t entertain, we missed Christmas Eve mass, and I took almost no pictures. I didn’t really feel very Christmasy. I’ve been tired. Work these last few months has been a...

Grandpa’s Logbooks

I’m starting a new project. Like most of my plans, it will take forever but a journey of 1,000 mile begins with a single step. I want to publish all of Grandpa’s logs from the war so that you can all have a copy. These books make great reading. It is real history and...
The First Post

The First Post

Well, by now I think you can all see where I want to go with this. I have taken pictures for 55 years and I still have every negative. My catalogue runs to almost 80,000 images! Not all of them are worth looking at but there are enough to make an interesting web site....
