This is now a personal website. I retired in April, 2017.
August 20 Party Schedule
I will welcome guests any time between 10 a.m. and late that night. Appropriate food and drink will be available throughout the day. If you want to leave and come back, fine; there's a lot to see in Fort Worth.
I request that everyone be here between 1 and 3 p.m. That way you will be sure to meet everyone else and have time to talk. There are no formal plans. Just eat, drink, see all the photos, and talk. I'm looking forward to that.
Denver, Augusta, Noel
In the mountains near Denver, we hiked a gentle trail for a while and then drove along this spectacular river for miles. No camping for me here, I spent two days with a friend from our time in Madison and her husband. Harriet changed her life, too.
The third floor window of this motel gave me a great view of fireworks exploding over small-town Kansas July 4. Not a civic event. Just lots of people shooting lots of money into the night air. I've lived in a city so long, I forgot that was legal in much of America.
My drive from Denver through Kansas to Missouri took me through another small town, Noel, Missouri. After passing this house, I thought, wait a minute; is that real? I turned around to confirm that it is. The design is all stone.
Spending the month in Fort Worth to get the house ready to go on the market, I've spent a lot of time in the past. These are Harriet's diaries covering the period since Hilary was born. The open one in front is mine from 1975. I have no written record from Harriet for that time except: 1974 - met Larry in the fall; 1975 - Larry moved in. Mine is all about me and contains excruciatingly more detail.
