Marge and I being married in 1960

I have removed these fingernail slideshows and replaced them with a separate slideshow post. You can access it by clicking on the link at the bottom of each subsequent posts.
I am now placing the most recent slideshow at the top in reverse chronological order. I can't easily re-do that for the few already posted, but this method should be more user friendly. I usually limit a single show to 25 or less images.

Summer vacation time in PA. Trips for me, mostly business related. I had a speaking engagement in Chicago and made a side trip to Dearborn, home of many museums and similar places of interest. I took a trip at Memorial day to Tampa to spend a few days there with a friend and so some sailing in the Gulf. That was a lot of fun. I went to Poughkeepsie, NY to visit a counterpart at Central Hudson Power. Marge and I both went to Williamsburgh, VA as I was going to a trade show of electric utility vehicles. Marge did some shopping and sightseeing. We left the girls at home and had a very nice time together. Pleasure with business, a good combination. I had a new eye exam and also a detailed hearing exam. Some minor problems but nothing serious. I took up the jogging craze and find it is a good way to unwind after a day at the office and get in good physical shape. I took the exam for a Professional Engineering license 20 years after graduation. It was exhausting but I believe I did OK. Future summer plans involve going to Virginia Beach with another couple for a vacation which we are all looking forward to. Continue reading
Trailer traveling from PA to FL. To the Tampa FL area in July. (NO A/C on the trailer…THINK about that!!) It was my wife Marge’s wish to take some spoken Spanish classes with some people she knew. We both learned some about the life experiences each of us had. Very Good. Very positive. So if you want to go on the road, please join us here. Continue reading
