A DIRECTORY
This chapter deals with my departure from Wisconsin following the death of my wife, Susan.  I
wanted to visit with relatives and friends in California whom I had not seen for many years, in
some cases, many decades.  Along the way I spent a lot of time and thought reviewing my life
in Taft, California.

SPRING BREAK MARCH, 2002
In March 2002 my stepfather, Skip Werling, died of liver cancer.  I had visited with him in December,
2001, and he was in good health and we had a wonderful time together, spending the day driving about
Taft, and sharing meals at mid-day.  Following his funeral, I travelled to some of the coastal cities, Pismo
and Santa Barbara and visited the Ronald Reagan Library.

TRAVELS TO LONDON AND SPAIN
WITH ROSALIE,  JUNE 2002
Since high school, I have been interested in the Bullfight.  In June, my sister,
Rosalie, and I travelled to Madrid and Sevilla where I not only saw three  
Corrida's at Las Ventas, Madrid, but toured the national museum, Prado,
and the Royal Palace.  Lots of impressions about Spain, and the bullet train
to Sevilla turned the day into a real treat.  Rosalie and I got really interested
in fashion on the streets and lovers in public.

FALL AND WINTER, 2002-2003
Toward the end of the summer, I took up an email conversation with Linda Hannon Reed, a Taft
High School classmate, but one I did not know.   In August, I traveled to Bakersfield to meet her
for the first time. This visit began a courtship that culminated in our marriage January 21, 2003
and our honeymoon in Hawaii, February, 2003.

In late April, we had the good fortune to attend a lovely wedding in San Francisco, then left soon
after for Texas, to meet Linda's sister, Judy, cousin Allan and visit the LBJ Library in Austin
and the Dealy Plaza, Dallas, where JFK was shot.  Texas was great!  A week home to rest and
then we were off again to meet Linda's relatives in Iowa, and my children in Minneapolis.
