Memorial Day

Today, I remember especially my old next door neighbor, Nick Kline. I believe he was an airplane mechanic in WWII. As a little kid, he always invited me over into his garage and taught me all kinds of things about mechanics and wood working. And he patiently listened to me talk about nothing for hours.  Here’s to my good friend and neighbor, Nick… Who was about 70 years older than I was.

Today I remember especially my grandpa Schmitt. He was a medic/medical transport in the Korean War. The stories he had to share are so amazing. He was an incredible, incorrigible man and I admire him. He was a great hunter and fisherman. He loved the outdoors. I love him.
