BREAKFAST AT A LOCAL hotel (restaurant)
This is my Boyd and Wurthmann (for the Ohio folks). At least 2 days a week I come and get a take-out order of 5 servings of dal (spicy beans) 5 servings of bhaji (spicy vegetables and potatoes) and 10 pieces of nan ruti (flat bread). Sometimes for my breakfast I just stop in and order some to eat there. It’s kind of like my Ohio “Boyd and Wurthmann!”
PARTICIPATION TROPHY being received after the final match at the Towne Hall Field Tournament. It was a big event with a band and lots of firecrackers. I was introduced at the opening ceremonies and was with the long line of dignitaries of the Towne Hall Market Committee, etc. to shake the hands of the players of the two teams in the final match. It was a fun evening.
HALIM’S NIECE who adopted me as her Uncle!

We were invited to Halim’s place for a meal on Friday afternoon. It was nice to meet all of his extended family. He is one of 8 brothers and 2 sisters.
LADY WHILE VISITING/SAYING GOOD-BYE BEFORE TRAVELING HOME
TRIBUTE TO SHANNON WENGER a friend who passed away on Tuesday after a battle with cancer, surgery, chemo, etc. with hope of recovery and a turn for the worse on Saturday.
SHANNON was a fun-loving person. It was a pleasure to have made her acquaintance many years ago in Canada when she was a teenager. Our families had many good times together. She had a zest for life that was contagious. She will greatly be missed by friends and family. My sympathy goes out to the family.
HALIM’S FATHER reminds me of my Grandfathers with the white beard. Maybe I enjoy foreign travel because of my Grandfathers’ influence. My paternal Grandfather traveled to Europe on the “Queen Elizabeth” to visit the land where his ancestors came from. My maternal Grandfather traveled to Germany on a cattleboat, which was delivering a heifer he had donated to the post-war rebuilding efforts.
