A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
It's just possible I posted this before. I take so many photos and I don't have a good system for checking them off when I post them. So here it is again if you've already seen it. One of my goals is to acquaint blog readers from around the country and around the world with the kind of country we live in here in St. George UT in the southwest corner of the state.
Photo of my wife (second from left), her mother, and two of her sisters. We were married in December 1952 so this Easter was our first Easter after marriage. I was finishing my degree at the University of Wyoming and would graduate in May 1953. Fortunately, my wife had a job and could make the payments on her engagement ring. Little did we both knoiw that Easter that we would be headed for four more years of college.
With four of our five kids (the fifth was yet to be born in Laramie WY) in Ann Arbor Michigan when I was finishing my Ph.D. dissertation and we were living in a second floor two bedroom apartment with an occasional mouse.
We were late getting to St. George in early December since Michelle and Josh decided to get married the end of November. Now, only a few months later Josh has about finished his first year of teaching high school science stuff and coaching wrestling and Michelle continues her super MBA-type professional career. Plus they are building a house a hop and a skip away from a Rio's Mexican restaurant so they will never be without food. This photo just happened to be on my photo list of pictures taken to get us from Salt Lake to St. George.
