Josiah helped Tim take a load of stuff to donate to Salvation Army.
Back in seventh grade (around 1971), Tim wanted to learn how to play the guitar. Here’s what got him started…a course that came with an audio cassette and a book. Remember this was before there were VHS tapes or even YouTube.
After loading up the SUV, we took a group photo and said our goodbyes before leaving for Des Moines.
For our pictures, Tim set up the camera with a 10-second time delay. Here’s a video of our picture taking.
This summer, Nicole, Victoria, Lizzie, Josiah, Jeri and Tim flew to the Midwest to visit family. We started our trip by waking at 3:00 AM for an early morning trip to LAX. We flew non-stop to Des Moines. After spending a night with Grandma Stogdill, we drove our rented SUV (a Kia Sorrento) to Moline, Illinois to visit Grandma Pau.
Most of the time, we just hung around the house. We would watch Wheel of Fortune in the evenings. We (especially Tim) helped sort through stuff.
Here’s Lizzie playing the electronic piano.
We worked (but never finished) a tortuous 1000-piece puzzle.
Josiah still found time to create new things. He turned a model plane launcher that was nearly 50-years old into a dart launcher.
Grandma made a lot of yummy food including sushi.
We really liked the vegetarian sushi that Grandma made for us.
