Among readers with Y chromosomes there is always interest in
the combustion engine.

Dan's old Studebaker truck.

And John in Wichita in 1961

Archives from Dal and Sal

Dalton and Bill exchanged birthday gifts for many years.
They met I believe when Old Sal hired Dalton as a carpenter.

Bill is a baker and a sculptor.

He often made Dalton items of apparel

Hoodie Bequests

One always wants to leave one's valuable
 possessions to one's friends and family.
Sort of like the family jewels.

At the recent Hobo reunion Josh gave
everyone their choice of Dalton's hoodie sweatshirts.

Some of us believed there to be only one at a time

But there were enough for all

And surprisingly they all fit.

Although the Hobos are not all the same size

Reunion & Lunch

Janet invited the Lonesome Hobos

and groupies out for one of her famous Sunday dinners yesterday.

She and Josh treated us to a spread of brisket and chicken and

a suitcase full of memorabilia---papers and gifts that Marian and Bill have saved over the years.

Some people are camera-shy

We wish you all could have been there.
(There was certainly enough food)

In the 1970s and '80s there were dances like proms

with themes like this 1980 dance called Arty Gras
Brown took pictures
The Go-Cats played

Fool-Les-Vous was in 1981
They started out as Art Escapades in 1972

Backdrops were painted

Prizes were awarded for best costumes

There were memorable costumes for Art Duco

And A While on the Nile
maybe in 1979

Party at the Howards

Brenda sent some snapshots she took about 1991 or '92 of a party on the porch
