July 1978

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

January 1978

Marge and I work together on some home improvements in our kitchen. We also joined the church choir; another activity we both enjoy and pleasant together. I went to two utility conferences speaking at one of them. We were plagued by ice storms in the fall but managed to cope with the power outages. Indoor camping one might say. My Mom visited us from her home in Plattsburgh NY which we all enjoyed. The fall season visits us with the flu, though not too seriously. We look forward to the coming year including a trip to Georgia during Easter vacation time. Continue reading

Jan 1975, national economy, holidays, travel plans, new and old hobbies

A new year is upon us.  Unfortunately it doesn’t seem  better than last year. For us as a family the situation appears OK. Nationally is a different matter. One month we hear of a tax surcharge, than a tax rebate. … Continue reading

July 1974- union strikes, major flood, trailer camping

Summer ’74 is definitely with us now, and for me an unusual experience, working as a helper on a line crew.  A line crew installs and maintains the wiring from the electrical distribution system to the last customer.  Was this … Continue reading

April 1974

March surely did go out like a lion this year.  We had about an inch of snow on March 31, but it didn’t last long.  The snow flakes were big and wet, came down hard for a few hours and … Continue reading

Marching Along – 1974

Spring is springing, a young man’s thoughts turn to Love, and a middle-aged man thinks about his trailer. March 74 certainly came in very lamb-like.  I was sick again in February with the flu, more severe in February than January. … Continue reading

Another New Year – 1974

Here we are again, now in 1974.  I didn’t get around to writing until the end of the month for some unknown reason now, probably the Christmas rush, celebrations, etc.  One of our Christmas day rituals was turning the house … Continue reading
