Talking about the Andra reunion and Lava, did you know Uncle Otto as we called him used to have a little cafe there. I was just little + I do not remember Jackie being around so it was before 1960. Why did the Andra side perish in the camps in Germany? Were they Jews?
On the Jonas side I only know probably 1st cousins + then not very well on the older ones. On the Andra side I know very few. Well off do not associate with the black sheep + snubbed cause of religion. Pretty petty when the hypocrites snub the jacks.
I did not know LaRita even had a boy named Dennis but I remember the others names. I could not tell you what they even look like. Most of the time you can tell who they belong to though. Except for a few Jonas reunions + fewer Andra reunions I have not had much to do with relatives since ’68. During the marriage I had to deal with the green-eyed monster I was married to so I did not even get to associate with my relatives when I did go to the reunions. Do not you say one damn thing cause you do not know what went on in the marriage. I tried to keep everything out of sight so you + Sis would not know. Only thing Sis is smarter than you + she does not have blinders on like you do. Habitual liars do not know how to tell the truth even if it would save their lives. DO NOT say anything about the subject. Let it go.
Sounds like you got quite a plate full with your schooling + other activities + working on your house. There is no way better to learn than 1st hand + doing it yourself. Glad to hear they got the ones who broke into your house.
As for Dan + his partner whether it be male or female it does not matter cause it was Dan’s business but you know what Paul you just do not give it up. If you are you are and if you are not you are not. It is no one’s business but Dan’s + that goes for your cult too. If you remember Larry’s boy got messed up by one on his mission. It is a way of life for some but a dirty nasty game for others. The dirty nasty ones ruin it for the legit ones. Your cult cannot change that. I do not care what you say. Your cult does not care about anything but making their membership list grow. Whether worthy or not of their requirements makes no difference to them. Remember I spent 39 years on the membership list before the BS come to a head and Duffin or Duff or whatever his name was help me free myself from the cult. DO NOT say anything here either. I have just as much right as you of an opinion. I caint help it if mine is opposite of yours. We will never see eye to eye on the subject. You do not condemn me cause I do have a quarter century more knowledge than you on life.
In school, I never cared much for history but I read some biographys that really opened my eyes about the so called great american political figures and the corruption that has gone on in the US of A. How a cold blooded murder can hold the positions of governors and presidents. Pretty spooky. I also read an autobiography of an anarchist who also opened my eyes to the corruption in the country. Look what has happened in the last couple of years of an asinin ripping of a lot of people off for millions + billions of dollars. I have seen how state govt rips the fed govt off. An in the end all the pain + suffering of the unsuspecting humans.
I do not think competitive enters into it anymore Paul. I think it is all selfish + greed. you remember back when there was the big doings about buy american made products to keep the money circulating in our own nation. I have only seen things made in other countries like Vietnam, China, Taiwan, Afganastan, Mexico + in South America, etc, or things made in other countries then repackaged in the US. Why? Cause of the cheapness of labor. The american thinks he worth so much. Americans + their double standards. Stupid people who live beyond their means. the ones who live wanting instead of living with their needs. There is a different in buying what you need + buying what you want. Night + day, black + white. A lot of people buy buy buy + do not worry about where the $ is going to come from to pay on all the spending. I know I never go you kids things you wanted but then I did not have to cause someone else bought your love by getting it for you. But then I guess love never ment that much to me if I had to it unlike some others I know.
I am glad you two do not want a large house. Working up int he Sun Valley area I seen all those great big houses + could never figure out why the people wanted them except to out do the neighbor. The prices were ridiculous. But then when I took Gunther back to Connecticut the prices were ridiculous back there then too. Why have space you do not use? Do you know how they build the buildings in England or maybe I should say Europe. It looked like similar architect in the countries. Americans are not as smart as they might think. The old countries are a lot smarter in the general things. I myself have always wanted a small log cabin. Did you ever see the log cabin Aslett’s had in Mackay? That was a cute one but I want a build-in fire place instead of a stove. Maybe some day.
What is between Oklahoma + Arizona where one has high humidity + one does not? Is there a high mountain range? I do not remember New Mexico having high humidity there. So if you leave Oklahoma will your allergy stay there or go with you? You did not get your allergies from my side of the family, you got it from the other side that is sick. How come the shot only lasts a week? Do not they have them that lasts longer than that? Just exactly are you allergic to? Is it mostly pollens and such or do animals enter in too?
Paul, it is not Idaho I do not like it is the self-righteous hypocrits I do not like. I love mother nature + all her glory she makes. There is beautiful land, plants, wildlife. It is the human species of animal I do not like. But you are wrong on the govt part. Idaho is corrupt as hell. The 1st Amendment, separation between state + church, does not exist. The state is run by a cult. Idaho is 1 of 2 or 3 out of 50 that took away good time. It was taken away Feb ’87 when the Unified Sentencing Act went into affect. Then you got the asinines in the senate or legislature who have been in there a while (Darrington – Declo) who says over my dead body will good time be brought back. Darrington was a history teacher at Burley High when I went there. A good upstanding mormon prick. Greed is a corrosive in the fine upstanding govt of Idaho. But I will not go on. Politicians are vermin.
Sorry about the picture in 4th grade. Where did it come from? Who? It was not Doug or Jackie’s writing. Apparently someone stupid. Now tell me if you looked at the picture that you would of known who I was. Is there no common sense any more?
Paul, if Dad + Colleen were married in ’46 + I was born in ’54 how do you expect me to answer what they did? It seems very difficult if I did not exist. I have no idea when the house on State St was built. I know Dad worked for Sego all the time I was alive. I have no idea what Colleen did + do not care. I remember a lot of Richmond being I lived there the 1st 14 yrs of my life + then back again after high school for a while. no one came to visit except relation. Evan + Spence used to come up to fish. Evan the most in High Crick. At bird season the front yard looked like camper city. A lot of Jonas + Coleys, pheasant, duck, geese. Joe’s boys, Lee + Earl. I do not ever remember Ellis coming up. He was too good. We used to have the Jonas reunion down on the park ever year, by the highway where the elementary school was. I understand it is torn down now but do not know if they built another one there or not. There was always Black + White Days + baseball games behind LD’s. The 4th of July they used to role a car off the NC mountain. It was right behind the house pretty much. There was the Group that Dad + Colleen belonged to. Different holidays they met at someones place + had a party. New Years was at our house. Dad bagged the geese + Colleen cooked them + then the people brought pot luck. We had a regulation pool table + the guys pretty much was downstairs playing pool + I do not know what the women did. I pretty much stayed downstairs. Colleen belonged to a bridge club. I think it was with the women in the group but caint be sure. Dad belonged to the Lion’s Club so there were outings + things that they put on. There was a place in High Crick where they had suppers and breakfasts. There were 2 wards, North and South. The earthquake ’62 took North ward out. It took the house on the corner, the one across the road + Sal’s house out. I am sure a lot others too through out Richmond. Cherry Crick Peak was loosened + said it would fall if we had another quake or some bad tremors. Face rock shifted + turned into a frog. How’s that for a few things.
Tell Amanda not to worry about writing. We are strangers + she would not know what to write to me anyway. Also tell her I do not care if she had judged me even though it is not her business to judge me. How can you judge people start wit? People you have never met? She must of forgot where I have to live. I am not allowed things like electric toothbrushes + I caint afford Sensodyne paste @ 7.50 – 4 oz. She must not of read my letter very well cause I told her I had reconstruction where the gums were worn away but that some had come off.
You would think in this day + age they could figure out how to make + replace teeth + dentures. Does she know anything about the ones that screw into the jaw? I understand they are almost like real teeth + they keep the jaw in shape like natural teeth do. But I hear it is expensive. About a grand per tooth. I heard a top plate you have to get over the gag reflex. There is no way I would go without teeth. I have seen it a lot here. Seen a lot of snaggle toot people too. I just do not see how people can go around with a mouth full of rotten teeth either.
I guess it is getting time to close. I got 2 other letters to write, Gunther + Sal. I finally got correspondence back with Gunther after 6 months. I hope she keeps her nose clean cause I sure could not handle worrying about her being here. The AG’s brief is due tomorrow so I guess I will be hearing from my atty soon too.
You 2 take care + good luck with your lives. Hope no more robbers come your way. You need an attack animal. Were you home when they broke in? Let me know how your small claim turns out against them. So Long for now.
Did you get the little card for your birthday?
I forgot to put both you kids names on them.
I remember after I mailed them.
