Comments:

I recently bought an old house here in Duxbury, a town incorporated 1637 and just north of Plimouth where the Pilgrims first settled. My house dates from 1764 and was built by Captain Wait Wadsworth who became a captain in the Revolutionary War.

I am now involved in (observing, consulting and paying for) extensive renovations. Two days ago, my contractor found that half of the house does not have a foundation and rests on wood planks about 1 to 3 inches above the dirt. So next week, the house will be lifted up onto steel planks and moved off its location so that dirt can be dug out and a 4 foot foundation can be poured. We will also construct a new addition and a garage attached to the back and side of the original house.

You can correctly predict that I will be improvished by the time of the reunion.

School Story:

University of Illinois, BA, 1967.
Northwestern University, BS, 1984.
University of Texas at Austin, MS, 1989.
University of Texas at Austin, PhD, 1995.

I was in the same homeroom at Coolidge with Steve and Jerry Collin. That homeroom was filled with a great group of boys and girls. Remember Mr. Nagel? Steve phoned me on Valentine's Day a few years ago. He called "Just Because." He was worried about Bill Brinkman at the time and asked me to pray for him.

Mr. Dilulio was the band teacher at Coolidge Jr. High before he moved to that position at MHS. I played (or tried to play) the flute. Even though I wasn't very good, Mr. Dilulio was nice to me.

I am very sorry to learn of Marcia's death. She and I talked about a month ago and she and I talked about the cancer. I meant to call her back. About a week ago, I was reminded of something that happened in Mrs. Roman's third grade class at Lincoln School. Marcia and I were classmates. And I thought that I would call Marcia and reminisce with her about Mrs. Roman and some of our classmates. But I didn't get around to making the call and I'm sorry.

Carol was a nice girl. At one of the reunions, she told me about being a single mom when her kids were young. I asked how she did it and she said her mom helped her out a lot.

My mailbox is on the right. My nice neighbor dug out the boxes and area in front so postman can get to the boxes.

My little dogs, Frances and Zoe, like snow when they can walk on top of it. When the snow is light and dry, they sink.

I bought this cute little house. It was a mess inside. The 1950s addition to the back of the old house is unsightly and very poorly built. The addition has to go.

My 9-year-old grandson Brewster loves the teardown and the mess.
