Re: not too bright

When I would move from one neighborhood to another, I made 
it a point to scope it all out and kinda learn where kids
lived... I became familiar with the railroad tracks and the
canals when I moved from Jefferson to Spalding. Before that
my range of investigation was pretty much bounded by Hanes
(and whatever it was called after the curve The fire station
(great place to trick or treat), the Uptown and the houses in
between... My territory increased as I got older... I became
aware of the Richland Village and having to traverse Sherwood
Forest to get there... However, I was completely ignorant to
all the houses east of GWWay. It would be years before I
would realize so many homes that didn't look like any of mine
were over there... Eventually, I became aware that people
were building/buying brand new homes on the River... woo hoo
swimming pools and the whole 9 yards. There was a vacant lot
between VanGiesen, Stevens and the street that ran behind
Richland Lutheran Church (I take note of the name every time
I am home and immediately forget it [Maybe Kimball?}). Joe
CASTLEBERRY ('63) would move there and the HAMMERS ('65-'66)
and Terry KRUGEL ('65) would live on the Chief Jo side... so
I often wonder how in the world could I possibly be so danged
ignorant of all those other "developments"? I still don't
know the names of them and when people mention them I pretend
to have a clue what they are referring to... someday maybe I
will become more aware of my surroundings... riiiiiiiiight...
well at least I know that I have a very special Bomber-babe's
b-day to celebrate... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Helga BLANKINGSHIP
('66) on your special day, January 22, 2018!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: We are the Bombers

A huge Thank you to Curt DONAHUE ('53) for alerting me to 
his devotional book "A daily Devotional for the Layman"... 
it arrived today (yesterday) and it goes with my other 5
devotionals (AA related) I read every morning without fail. 
I am so proud of our literary Bombers and the wonderful works
they have published. I have read several and will begin
reading Curt's this morning (which isn't here yet as I
write... )... today's Bomber has the distinction of having
his Pop share the residence of Kippy's ('62) Pop, "Brink"
(NAB-RIP). So many Bomber parents keep in touch and I find
that very refreshing. Think about it, all of those strangers
coming together for a common goal of which they were totally
unaware until the historic newspaper article announcing the
Project they had worked on so diligently. All of those days
leaving lead lined cans out on the front porch to be picked
up and inspected (eeeeyeeeew as ML ('63) might say) come to
fruition and success. No this is not a political post it is
just a statement of fact. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Frank STRATTON
('64) on your special day, January 23, 2018!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Looking to rent or buy in Tri-Cities area

Fellow Bombers, I am moving back home!

I hope to be back there by mid-May. Really want to buy a
small place, with a yard. (I'm a dog & gardening person). 
But if I can't find a place to buy right away, I will need 
a rental. Needs to be fenced.

I'm a non-smoker with a gentle, laid back, lazy 100 pound
dog, and a 10 pound dog. Neither are destructive.

I don't want to buy in a mobile home park, because of dog
restrictions & no real yard. However, I have no objections to
a manufactured home per se.

Would also strongly consider land with water & electricity
(no septic required) on which I could park a tiny house.

So - get creative, friends. Please feel free to contact me
with any thoughts or ideas you might have!

Thank you,
-Lynn-Marie HATCHER Peashka ('68)
