Catching up with John
It was exciting to receive an email from John Greiner with some photos of his recent activities. I've copied his emails and included the photos. Here's what John and his wife, Marsha, have been up to recently.
"If you're still taking photos for the web, I have a few to send you. They are of me, my wife Marsha, Carleton and his wife Julia at a restaurant. The rain thwarted efforts to get pictures of us outside. We visited them in their home at Oneonta, New York, where they have lived for probably 40 years. They live outside town in a rural area. It's beautiful, but Marsha tells me I wouldn't think it was so beautiful if I had to drive in snow about 8 months of the year.
Marsha and I went on a cruise of the Hudson River in October. We stayed with Carleton and Julia before we left for NYC to take the cruise. All of it was fabulous.
Then we went to the far west where Marsha went to a convention in Portland while I went to western Washington state on the Idaho line to see an old Army buddy from long ago. Here are a few pictures.
I got to thinking about sending something to the website after I got the Henryetta newsletter with my story about Hens and Knights, plus a real good picture of several of our classmates.
This photo is of me pointing to the sign on the grounds of FDR's home in New York. YES. I STILL AM A DEMOCRAT!. Now that I no longer write stories, I can tell people. FDR's home is called Springwood and is located in the town or township of Hyde Park.
This photo is me standing by the railing on the riverboat on which we cruised on the Hudson River. I would recommend it to anyone.
This picture is of me and an Army buddy named Merrill Oaks. We were in Panama together. We stayed in touch, with him visiting me a few times. We were shocked to find out we had not seen each other since 1976. He lives in Washington State, taught at Washington State University."
Thanks, John , for sharing your photos and update!
