My commiserations. As we get older we have less friends, and not just 'cos we get more ornery :-(
When I turn 70 this year I will be inviting a bunch of friends for dinner one evening, telling them honestly that's because if I make it to 80, I'll no longer remember them :-(

FWIW, "Bloedel" is the German word for "Mess About!"

What a wonderful tribute to an everyday hero!

Sorry for the loss. I remember (vaguely) you talking about him at times. Sounds like he was open-minded enough to keep his biases from affecting his work and relationship. And you really have to admire a straight talker like that; I could wish for a few more of those in my life - my present boss dances around subjects and trying to get me to work my way to where she wants me to go - a waste of time - just tell me and I am much happier.


Bogie--Thank you. I, like you, always appreciate one who lays his/her cards on the table. Guessing can drive me crazy!
