School Story:

Grew up as an Air Force Brat. After I graduated from high school, served an LDS Mission to North Carolina-Virginia. Came home attended Weber State College, graduated in English, French and Spanish. After graduated from College served 2 years in the Peace Corps in West Africa. Came home joined the Air Force Reserves and got married about the same time. Spent most of my time deployed; 28 countries on 5 continents. Did time in the Sandbox. Retired in 2002. Got involved in private security and private investigations. October 12 last year took the vow of poverty and retired. Now I do family history research, write, travel with my wife and son and keep the road hot between my house and the VA hospital in Salt Lake. My father-in-law passed away in March of 2016. We had his house in Heber City, remodeled so we could move into it in September. It's about twice the size of our old home in Midway.We moved in October. In November my wife broke both her hips. So I had to do most of the moving myself. Thank goodness for neighbors, friends and family. It was good in that we got rid of a lot of junk and i lost 35 lbs.This year began with me falling on the ice, tearing my Achilles tendon, my calf muscles, and my daughter moving to Florida. She was tired of the snow and the cold. My son finally found a college he likes; BYU-Idaho online. He is also starting his own business. Now if he can find a girl who likes him and is willing to give us grand-kids we'll be set for our golden years. It's interesting to see that I'm not the only one with white hair and a spare around my girth.

Happy Birthday Vicki. My dad used to say that research shows that the more birthdays you have the longer you live. . Birthdays are very important.

It's been so long but the one thing I remember about Jan is how friendly she was. I remember she was in my Civics class and we had some good discussion. Sorry to hear about her passing but I guess one of the down sides of getting older is that we start losing good friends who pass to the other side.

I remember Jean. I'm glad you are doing well. I remember also sitting with you and your brother at our 30th reunion. I had just returned from a deployment to Kuwait. That reunion was fun. I'm sorry i haven't been to any others. Lately my health has gone south so I've kept the road hot between my house in Heber City, UT and the Salt Lake VA.In the meantime I've written some 25 books and papers. You can access them on academia.edu.

It's John Lemon's birthday today.
