Tribute to Grandpa


This is a tribute to my father-in-law, John R. Kellett, who died just 9 days short of his 95th birthday. He was very much alive till he died the morning of July 16 in his sleep. We shall miss him very much.

Old ball game

Eight of us in the office went to see a ball game Tuesday afternoon. It was my idea, and it was fun. The home team lost - it was quite a shame, giving up something like 20 hits and 16 runs - but we sang during the 7th inning stretch lustily...
