Vicki Bissell

Enjoyed the cooler weather yesterday and thankful for some rain.  Dick would be saying it is time to think about a weiner roast or Octoberfest.  Miss Him.

I think Dick would be saying after the loss Saturday that our taxes will be going up with the Husksters loss!

You read my mind Joann. He would say that.

In fairness to Frost we have had only a few great players the last several years. The years when everyone wanted to play for Nebraska has long been gone.It makes it hard to get the best recruits.  No matter how great a coaching staff you have if you don't have great team personnel you aren't going to be a great team.The coaches don't miss field goals, shank punts,tackle,block,throw the ball, run the ball,fumble,etc. When we went to the Big 10 the rivalrys and tradition went too.Unfortunately,college football is all about the money and it is ruining the sport. That is why Southern Cal and UCLA are coming to the Big 10. Imagine those fans going to Rutgers or Penn State to watch a game. Just my thought.

Hello...happy fall
Just wonder what allyou Bronco fans think about Russell joining you🏈🏈🏈🏈🏈

Ron Smith

Karolyn,it just doesn't look right with him not wearing a Seattle uniform. Geno played well enough to get the W tonight for you.  Can't blame Russell going to Denver and making $245 million for 5 years. I am pretty sure I never made $49 million in any year of my working career. Xavier is also a big Seahawks  and Mariners fan after living out there.He is back in Nebraska now and lives in Hastings.

Thanks for the Birthday wishes!   Reaching 70 is better than the alternative, however it is really difficult to claim "I'm not old" when the number is 70!  of course it is a nice pairing to gradulation year huh.    Life in San Diego is expensive but good.  I volunteer as a Docent on the USS Midway, so if you are heading this way let me know and I can get you some free tickets.   I love doing the presentations of how to launch and recover planes on an aircraft carrier. 

 I miss a lot of the things about Nebraska life and of course the people.  California is mostly loony toons these days.

Nice to hear from you on the forum.I wonder if Bob Manning is still in San Diego?  Bob and Rich Larson lived together after their navy days for awhile. Rich came back to Kearney in about 1979 and bought his parents car and we drove it back to San Diego.They had a plane crash at the airport weeks before that in San Diego and there were body parts found on the runway. I asked Rich what it would cost to fly back to Nebraska. With Rich's quick wit he told me just an arm and a leg.

I looked at Kathy's profile and saw the pictures she had posted. What a great looking family you have. You married your high school sweetheart and you are still together. I asked one of our classmates for a date in high school and she politely said no and I said it's because I am too short and she said yes and I said I am taller than a lot of people and she said yes,but most of them are still in 3rd grade. I wasn't the shortest in our class. I towered over Kevin Hendrickson by at least a quarter of an inch.

Leanna Fritz

Anna had a great idea about sending out a post for Dick. Dick always liked to hear about me and my dad's beaten and battered Husker flag. He must have gotten it in 1970, because it looks about that old, complete with notes he made with magic marker on it. Looks ok from the street, as long as you don't get too close to it. Anyway,Dick liked to hear about my tradition of running the flag around the front tree after a Husker win. And I did that after the ND game! I did it once at his farm too, when we had a mini out there one fall.A Good memory! Will I get to run around the tree a couple more times?

Time for Frank and Gary to post.....

My great niece is now at UNL...imagine it's a memorable experience on game days.

I was in Rockt Mtn Natl Park yesterday at a wedding, and the elk were bugling in the background.  That was memorable!

Go Huskers Stay  with the plan.

Anna - Nice idea to post in remembrance of Dick. With the firing of Frost, I'm sure Dick would be questioning why he didn't choose to become a college coach...being able to get canned and get paid big bucks for doing nothing:)  And of course his taxes would be going up due all the Huckster loses!!

Terry R - In Dick's words, "Damn Rayback, that's what I call an update". Welcome to the forum. It sounds as if you've had a full life and still going. Congrats on still be married to your high school sweetheart. We have new neighbors from San Diego...they said the looney bin got a little too full for them:)

Leanna - I hope you have a backup exercise plan that's not based on Husker victories!  Maybe switch to the KC Chiefs.  Vickie and I are going to be in Elkhorn for a wedding on Oct 8...staying with some old Az neighbors who moved to Papillion last fall. Maybe we could get together for breakfast that Friday if you guys are available..a breakfast mini?

Karolyn - It was really strange to watch the See Hawks and Denver game.  I didn't know who to root for or against? I still haven't made my mind up yet:) 

Our summer is finally starting to wind down. It's been a cool summer by Az standards, only 2 days over 110, but a lot of rain. That meant HUMIDITY which we're not used to. The lows are getting into the low 70's and monsoons are mostly gone. Ready for Winter!!!

It's nice to see some activity on the forum! I think Dick would like that😊

Well put Tiger I agree about Frost.

Happy birthday today to the Rodriguez twins Jonas and Xavier. Great times with Xavier in high school riding around with him in his 1966 Pontiac GTO. Cruising central avenue looking for young chicks in his hot car didn't help. Now we would be happy to find an old hen.

Marcene Niedt (Joy)

From an Old hen to a couple roosters. Happy birthday Marcene

Gary Martin

Ron - Your post about cruising main brought back many fond memories.  First, I thought Mike Behn was the only one with a GTO (65)...wish I could remember Xavier's?  A few weeks back I was watching the movie American Graffiti with my sons on one of the Dish channels. I told them that, although that movie was based in the early 60's, it was EXACTLY the same experiences we had while we were growing up in Kearney. (Not sure they believed me:))  My next door neighbor actually grew up near Petaluma Ca., the town they filmed the movie in and recalls the making of the movie. He's a few years older than we are😊  As a matter of fact though, you and he could have a heck of a conversation as you both have memories that I wish I had!!

I drove through the old neighborhood today and it brought back so many great memories when we were kids.The old Kenwood grocery store and Kenwood school. Remembering my Kenwood teachers Helen Marshall,Janet Chavet,Elizabeth Nelson,Evelyn Mintzmeyer,Helen Lofgren,Ruth Slack,Leonard McCarville and Malay Moberg. Also, the cooks Mrs.Gillming and Mrs.Baker and her husband who was the janitor at the school. Thinking about mom giving me $7 on monday for lunch tickets for the week.That was for me,my twin brothers and sister.35c  for each meal which was $1.75 for each of us per week and it was great food too.

Thinking about 2 regrets that I wish I had never done as a kid.Stealing pop bottles out of  Wise's garage until Buzz (Susie's Dad) caught me. I wish he would have given me a whoopin instead of telling my mom. My punishment was no Captain Kangaroo for a month. Also,the time Jimmy Kantaras(71) and I each crapped in a brown paper sack and put it on Mrs. Worlock's porch and lit it on fire one night. We knocked on her door and hid and watched her come out and stomp on it to put the fire out. All of us kids thought she was a witch.I got to know her later and she was a very sweet old lady. Really regret doing that to her.

We had a bully in our neighborhood,Lyle Smith.He raised pigeons and had them in a big cage outside. He had a pellet gun and would put milo in it and shoot us neighbor kids.Me,my brothers,Jimmy Kantaras and Greg Brandt.We would go get Greg's sister Sandy and she would tell Lyle to leave us alone.Sandy was a tomboy and could have easily stomped a terd out of him.He was afraid of her. Just some childhood memories.

Happy birthday to "Lefty Carpenter" our only classmate who could legally sell drugs. A guy went to Dave's  pharmacy and said he was having trouble with his hearing. Dave said how do you know and the guy said his hearing was so bad he couldn't even hear himself cough.Dave said take these pills. The guy asked if they would help him hear better Dave said no they will make you cough louder.

Dave Carpenter

Ron - Thanks for the birthday wishes. It's a little strange to think we have entered into our 8th decade of life!      I never get tired of your "humour". That guy that you mentioned that came into the pharmacy with a hearing problem, actually came into the store often. One day he was having problems with his eyesight so I asked him to describe his complaint.  He told me that he saw spots every morning when he woke up. So I inquired if he had seen a doctor, he said no...just spots!

Terry - Nice hearing from you.  Congrats to you and Kathy for your 50 years of marriage and for your awesome Naval career. Thank you for your service!

Gary - I hope it works out to see you and Vicki when you guys are in Nebraska. Lots to talk about.

Kathi - We have done the crab boil also, except I think we used shrimp and sausage. Called it a Slow Country Boil. You are was very good.

Leanna - I love that tradition of running with the flag after a Husker win.  Hopefully you'll get to do that more often.

Anna - That was a great idea to post something in memory of Dick.  He was such a great guy with a fantastic sense of humour.  I think of him often.

Happy birthday Schick. Even the great Russel Wilson isn't going to save your Broncos this year.

I saw that Eric Holzrichter's mother passed away. Condolences to the family.
We were hoping to see Vickie and Gary last Friday but it didn't work out. ☹️

Happy birthday tomorrow to Ron Smith! Unfortunately I don't have his memory so I decided I better send birthday wishes while I'm thinking about it!
Hope you have a great day!
