Back to 1958

My cousin Glenn in Regina Saskatchewan just sent me these two pictures from my childhood. Dick and I were in Regina in July 2010 for a week as part of our Northern Tier bicycle tour. On the Sunday we went to church with Glenn, we met Clara Scheske Gee. She told me she had two pictures of me with her sons, Ken and Cyril, taken in August 1958; I was 9 years old, my family had gone to Canada for vacation. Recently she found the pictures, sent them to Glenn who scanned them and sent them to me.

Thanks to Clara for this wonderful gift, to Glenn whose advancing computer skills got the pictures to me, and to Thais (in California) who helped me download them (in Mexico). A three-country operation.

    How is the outboard going.
    ps Are you thinking of doing the Pacific this year, or maybe just French Polynesia.
    I am so so bored back home.
