Re: WWII memories

I don't have any family or friends with WWII experience, as
some recent entries have noted (though amazingly enough, I have
a photocopy of Dad's World War ONE draft registration card).
The closest I come is Mom's WWII job, down at the docks in
Seattle, working for the Navy as a civilian. There she met and
fell in love with a sailor. I have no doubt that had he lived,
they would have been married. Alas, he was killed in WWII
somewhere in the Pacific. 

My wife Cherrie ('64), however, does have a connection. Her
father, Jack Tempero, served in the Navy in WWII as a Chief
Petty Officer. He was stationed in the Pacific on a ship with 
a mission to pick up downed or deceased pilots. Sadly, some 
of the bodies of the deceased pilots had washed up on island
beaches, and had sometimes been there for several days before
discovery. That gave the crabs time to get at them. Following
his Navy career, Jack never ate crab again the rest of his
life. 

It's easier for me to understand now why many war vets don't
talk about their experiences.

Re: that DIY gene that our fathers had. 

My son DOES stuff, but he's always using whatever comes to hand
as a tool, like a table knife for a screw driver. Drives me
CRAZY! He's a wizard with lights and sound - makes visiting his
home fun. When I wake up in the middle of the night (as older
folks do), I discover stars floating all over my bedroom.
