Three Score and Ten the Introduction,|
Well here we go, After 50 years I am going to take another attempt at writing. The first time was the Palmer writers correspondence school in 1969. The writing will be not a book that will be written with the idea of being published, But will be a writing of thoughts unencumbered by possible publishing and monetary gain. This writing will be a hybrid of Journal and Reminisce. It is important to me that the writings are my true thoughts at the time, not influenced by any factor. The writing will try to explain how a 70 year old white, male USA citizen now relates to today's world. Is every oldest generation lost in their own world, that they aged into? What do I see, and feel as I age farther. I know I am not normal as in what this world today would consider normal. But I hope I am in the ball park writing the thoughts of a 70 year old. I hope for you to learn to know who I am, As I search for Who I am at 70+ This work will carry on until I am no longer able to think or write. This will be done on a nearly daily writing interwoven with a life's reminiscing. This writing has been in the planning for 10 plus years. and I have now made it to this starting point. This writing is dedicated to My Wife The Kitten, My family, My grand children, Lukas, Levi, Luis, Lydia and Sonora Pearl. I thank you God that you have allowed me to have your Three Score and Ten Time.

Hello Grandkids and Others
The last days since I have written have been eventful. I have had a stroke. I get around okay but I have lost a lot of eye site. I have always had eye trouble now it is real trouble. I don't see to the sides. I get tired and confused easily and it is harder to concentrate. I feel like I am in a fog. It is hard to type, my one finger typing is not the best with eyes. We had planned to go up north today. It is about a 3.5 hour drive and it is snowing and the wife would need to drive. She is not used to driving 0n snow and ice so we will stay home and go when we can. We have things taken care that need to be taken care of up there. The Daughter's and grandkids will come here on Thanksgiving, so we do not need to drive. they will bring most of the meal so the wife does not need to do it all. She stresses easily and is 70 also. I sure am proud of our family and how close we all are. There is no Black Sheep. The oldest granddaughter, Sonora is adapting to college life well. I am so proud of her she is going to Marquette University. i was not able to go to advanced school. The family has made a lot of progress over the generations. I hope you are having a Blessed Day
