Our daughter Katie and her family have been visiting this week and I'm happy to report there has been zero Pokemon Go nonsense attempted by grandson Dan. He has been busy wearing out grandma and grandpa with swimming, boating, fishing and general horsing around that seems well suited to these long warm final days of July. We can rest up next week.
On Sunday we had a visit from old friend Denny Krick, a California pal who now calls Seattle home. Denny is a World War II Navy veteran looking forward to his 91st birthday on August 7. He was on his way to Montana to see another mutual San Diego buddy at his summer home on Ashley Lake near Glacier National Park. Denny is a remarkable guy and I couldn't let the opportunity to introduce young Daniel to a true hero pass us by.
Here is the shot I hope Dan can show his grandchildren when he is 91. The generation that saved the world from the insanity of Hitler, Germany and the Empire of Japan is rapidly slipping away and will live on only in our history books and in the memories of those of us who knew them. Now Dan has joined our club. I hope he'll grow to treasure the day.
