UPDATE -- Snowfall extends the Hendersons' vacation
by Patty Henderson
Minnetrista, MN

You may have all seen that the Southwest suffered some pretty heavy snowfall... Well we had an extension to our recent vacation because of it.

On Friday, December 22nd, we loaded up a 15-passenger rental van with some very precious cargo: Ben, Heather and Mason, Dan and Gina, Rachel and Grandma Emma Henderson (Curt's mom). We were heading for Taos, New Mexico, where Curt's sister Vivian Murphy and family live.

We drove through Denver and saw some pretty huge snow piles. They were having trouble finding places to put the heavy snowfall. We reached Taos with ease, however. We chose to drive straight through, so we reached Taos Canyon on Saturday, the 23rd.

We spent the weekend with a short visit to Taos and some of the galleries. Taos is quite a cultural experience. If you are missing any of your "hippie" relatives, check there first! On the 25th, the "kids" snowboarded at a small mountain: Sipapu. The local Taos resort offers only skiing ... no snowboards allowed.

On the 25th, Curt and I headed to Wolf Creek in Southwestern Colorado with a vanload. It was beautiful! Sunny skies, deep powder and ski boots that fit me! (Usually, rental boots are less than adequate!)

On Wednesday, we headed to Los Alamos, where Curt's nephew lives. We went to a museum there that we really enjoyed. It told all the details of the beginnings of Los Alamos. Many of you probably already knew, but it was news to me: the town was begun strictly to work on the "project" or better explained as the making of the atomic bomb to end World War II. Very interesting afternoon there.

On Thursday we headed for Albuquerque. Curt's brother and his wife live there. We stayed in a very quaint bed-and-breakfast as Owen's home isn't completed yet. This is when the "weather" began for us.

Albuquerque got a record snowfall of 18-20 inches of heavy, wet snow. This is the most snow that they have seen in a single day! The hardest part was that they are not at all prepared for snow of any significance. Very few plows, a couple of road graders and no salt or sanding! What a mess.

We had planned to leave on Saturday forenoon; however, I-40 East and I-25 North were closed to the state line. Our only escape routes, closed! Actually, we enjoyed the "snowed-in" feeling and hunkered down to snacking and games. We also had a "kiva" (fireplace) in our room. So, with fire crackling, people snacking and lots of cackling, we enjoyed the day.

The mayor also announced that entrance to the Aquarium was free: interesting, as they were asking for no unnecessary travel! We took advantage of that and Mason REALLY enjoyed it. Later that evening, Heidi (Johnson) Henderson and Ryan and Rorke and Leatha came over for the evening, after a day of sculpting a 9-foot snowman in their yard. (I think they had a little "snow four-wheeling" too!)

On Sunday morning (the Spanish Special Meeting was cancelled) we headed out ... but wait ... we went south to get north! We had to head south on I-25 and then turn east when we found a road that was open. It was somewhat uneventful after that, but certainly the "scenic route." When we got to Amarillo, Texas (east of Albuquerque on I-40), the Interstate was still closed to Albuquerque; luckily, we headed east and then north! Mountain passes make for very interesting road conditions!

We are all back, safe and sound, in our respective homes. We certainly enjoyed it! If anyone is looking for fresh powder for skiing, I have some very good recommendations for you! Angel Fire, near Taos, got 54" of fresh powder!

UPDATE -- Snowzilla II gets top hat, frosty reception
by Miss Kitty
Anchorage, AK

We are having more winter weather than we know what to do with ... We've taken delivery on a whole winter's worth of snow already (five feet, officially, but lots more than that on our side of town). We had three weeks of temperatures around zero degrees in November. Now we are hearing that it's time to start shoveling snow off the roof before it gets heavier. And, boy, is it cold!

The ski and snowmobile and snowshoe crowd are pretty happy about all this snow but the snowplowing and snow shoveling crews are getting a little crabby about it. The best thing we've seen come from all this white stuff is Snowzilla II, the 22-foot snowman. Last week we put a picture of Snowzilla in Bulletin 237 but high winds had blown his hat away. Today there was a new picture of Snowzilla in The Anchorage Daily News and an article about why some of his neighbors wish he would go away.

We think it isn't so much that neighborhood curmudgeons are mad at Snowzilla ... or even at all the sightseers who come to get their pictures taken with him ... but that they are tired of winter. We understand. We've been tired of winter for about two months now and it just got started, officially, about two weeks ago. We got about a foot and a half of snow again on Wednesday and tonight the mercury is headed down to 10 degrees below zero ... and it may get colder here.

If you don't have enough snow for your own use, just let us know. We'd be happy to let you have some of ours. It's free if you pick it up. Shipping and handling is extra.

We had Christmas at Mother's this year (Gert and Don Pettit's home in Howard Lake, Minnesota). Ardis (Quick) was taking pictures for the occasion, so I had her do one of us. I guess I had better do a Family Update to go with it.

Derrick, my oldest son, is working at Littfins at Howard Lake. It is a factory that makes rafters and such for use by builders. Darryl is living at Ashby and his girlfriend, Amy Desrocher, is from Verndale.

Roddy (Derrod) and Alisha, who were married on May 14, 2005, are expecting a baby about March 17, 2007, and the doctor says it is going to be a girl. Alisha is attending a nurses' course in Fergus Falls. Roddy works for Contours, a factory in Fergus Falls.

I have been a cashier at Anderson Foods in Ashby for the last two years. Eddie has feeder cattle and also does work for Driggin's Electric in Ashby.

We wish you all a very Happy New Year!

UPDATE -- Happy New Year from The Netherlands
by Ary Ommert Jr.
Maassluis, The Netherlands

Thanks for the e-mail card I got from you. Happy New Year to you.

I went to my sister's to celebrate The New Year. Around midnight it was raining, a stormy wind and people didn't stay outside long, only to light the fireworks. I stayed overnight there and came home this evening.

In my town, Maassluis, a woman was killed when fireworks came into the house and started a fire.

Greetings to you from the Netherlands,

UPDATE -- Happy New Year to all
by Ruth Weiland Kitto
Apache Junction, AZ

Rich and Verlaine were here for 12 days and you'd know (not a guess) -- that we were busy! Another day I will tell you what all they did for us -- for instance, new cupboards, etc., etc., etc

We had very special days. They hadn't been here since Vern's funeral service in November 2001. We really enjoyed our time -- didn't do any sightseeing as we didn't have time to just sit in a car and ride around! We had planned some, but didn't seem feasible -- are we getting old, or what?

Of course, I've read the last Bulletin two or three times to digest it all. Such a great project and production! Thought you might like a glance at what we look like now in our older years.

Happy New Year!

The "old" people, managed to stay awake and welcome in the New Year! Patty and Don, Donna Richards, Beaver and I stayed up playing cards until shortly after midnight. Lots of fun, nice, relaxing, stress reducing weekend. Was great to kick back and have nothing much to do (besides EAT!). Weston joined us the night before and we enjoyed having his company. A brave guy, joining all the oldsters!

Caity had a friend over during their week off. She'd spent a day in the hospital, from her being so sick she needed an IV. So, she enjoyed having some fun, too, during the break. Amber Sundal joined her and together they romped in the "winter wonderland" we awoke to. It was very beautiful! With the milder temperatures we've been having, a lot of it has disappeared, but we do have more snow than the Alexandria area does.

by Dorothy (Dake) Anderson

If 2007 lives up to its introduction, it is going to be a beautiful visiting year. In the last week we have had three additional entries to our guest book:

There was a visit from Donnie and Patty (our son and his wife). They were headed for Donna and Beaver's to see the New Year in and they shared sandwiches with us for lunch;

The next visitors were on their way back to college in Fargo and stopped by for a visit. You will read what Dan and Gina were driving and where they went in the Henderson Update ... so I won't spoil that;

Today's visitors were a surprise and I did get my balky camera to work long enough to get a few photos of that visit. Jim Miller (my brother-in-law), his son Duane and Duane's wife, Ingrid, and then, later in the afternoon, Jay Miller stopped in to greet us all.

In the first picture Ingrid is signing the guest book for herself and her husband (my nephew) Duane Miller. I had a nice visit with Ingrid about her college education. She is about half way through her 4-year Registered Nurse course at St. Cloud State College. I also went to St. Cloud State, but I was in Education, to be an Elementary Teacher. It was fun talking over with her what the campus is like now, as compared to 1976.

The second picture introduces Duane's son Jay Miller, who came over for a visit with his Grandpa Jim Miller (here from Florida) ... and it is great to know that we do have a relative living here in Alexandria. Well, a bit out of the city limits -- but still very close by. We have promised each other to become better acquainted.

Jay did not come for noon lunch as he was at work, but the rest of us had a meal of Don's special "hot dish" with a few trimmings. We did enjoy our company. Please come and see us -- "You All."

Who Is This?

Let's Play a Guessing Game: Whenever it is handy to do so, we will run a picture of someone of the subscribers or staff members of our e-magazine. Tell us who you think it is -- we will let you know who was the first to guess it right -- and the correct guess -- in the following week's Bulletin.

(Send us some to run; we will line them up in our staging area to take their turn. Thanks to LeRoy Dake for sending last week's mystery picture.

How many can you identify?

Answers to last week's mystery pictures (click here to review them):

Loren Sigman, Jerry Smith, Doris Wheelock, Vonnie Thomas, LeRoy Dake, Vivian Wheelock and Gertrude Dake in about '46 or '47.

Vonnie Dake
Blaine, MN

Great picture! In front is Loren Sigman and Jerry Smith. In back ... Doris Wheelock, Vonnie Thomas Dake, Leroy Dake and next girl I can't name but last is Gert Dake.

Tom Miller
Madera, CA

I would recognize Doris Wheelock Bullick anytime! (As you know, both she and husband Stan Bullick have passed away several years ago.) Then Vonnie and LeRoy, of course, but I am wondering if the girl on the far right might possibly be Yvonne Sigman Boettcher? The young guys, have NO clue -- much younger than I -- hmm?

Ruth Weiland Kitto
Apache Junction, AZ

I really goofed on my GUESS last time, as I realize it could never have been Shari on that picture, but it was Gert! Of course -- my mistake! Now, this week's picture is so familiar. Doris Wheelock, Vonnie and LeRoy, Vivian Wheelock, Gert, Loren -- but the "bright socks" is a mystery to me yet.

Travelogue t

In The Company Of ACCompassion Group Friends
by Weston Johnson
Maple Grove, MN

On Friday morning I awoke early, packed my possessions into the car and checked out of the Super 8, which had been my home away from home since Monday. I made the short drive to the T-Gen headquarters, where I would attend the ACC Symposium that day.

As I described in the initial installment of my Travelogue, in Bulletin 228, the symposium brought together several doctors and researchers who are studying Adrenocortical Carcinoma (ACC), the type of cancer Coni had. In addition, the symposium would be attended by several members of the ACCompassion Group.

The ACCompassion Group is an online bulletin hosted by Yahoo! that allows ACC patients and their families and caregivers to exchange information on treatments, compare notes on symptoms and side effects and support and encourage one another through their respective struggles with the disease. Coni joined the Group shortly after her diagnosis and was active in it until shortly before her passing.

Mid-December marked the one-year anniversary of Coni's diagnosis, which led me to spend a lot of time reflecting on those initial days and weeks after the rug was pulled out from under our lives. One of the strongest emotions I remember feeling was fear of the unknown. We didn't know whether Coni would be able to have surgery to remove her tumor. We didn't know if she would have to undergo chemotherapy. We didn't know if she would live or die.

The ACC information we found on the Internet was limited, and even Coni's first oncologist at North Memorial Hospital had very little experience with ACC. When Coni found the ACCompassion Group, it opened up a whole new world of information to prepare her for what she could expect as she began treatment. By providing advice and sharing their stories and experiences, the members of the group helped alleviate that fear of the unknown and gave Coni hope that she could find effective treatments and beat her disease. In this way, the Group supported Coni in ways that no one else, not even her doctors, could.

In addition to dispensing valuable information, many of the Group members have gotten to know each other on a personal level through the online forum, united by an experience shared by very few people. Members write about their families, remember each other's birthdays and wish each other luck with their impending treatments, scans and doctor visits. In this way, each member becomes a living, breathing person, not just a screen name.

While my experience with the ACCompassion Group was limited to reading postings of particular interest that Coni shared with me, I was looking forward to meeting many of the members face to face, since each of them had, in some way, helped Coni during her fight with ACC.

I arrived at the T-Gen facility and found the meeting room where the Symposium would be held. While I didn't recognize any faces, the names printed on the ID badges let me know that I was surrounded by ACCompassion members. Many of them recognized me by a picture of Coni and me she had posted on the web site.

One of the first people to greet me was Margaret Mader, the founder and moderator of the site. Her father, who lived in Minnesota, died of ACC several years ago, but she has continued to spearhead the ACCompassion site, providing valuable advice and support for those whose fights are ongoing.

I found a seat at the table and found myself sitting among several Group members. To my left was Tim from Colorado, who was diagnosed with ACC two years ago. He was accompanied by his wife, a regular contributor to the Group. They left three children under the age of 10 with family back in Colorado while they attended the Symposium. Tim talked about how difficult his last treatments had been and told me that he was about to begin a new treatment protocol that he hoped would be more effective than his previous option.

To my right was Arlyn, a 30-something ACC patient from California who was originally diagnosed at the age of 27. She has undergone surgeries on two separate occasions to remove ACC tumors, but is currently cancer free. As it turned out, she was one of several amateur photographers in the Group. She shared many of her pictures from the Symposium, including the group shot accompanying this writing.

Across the table from me were Margaret and Steve, a middle-aged couple who had traveled all the way from Australia to attend the Symposium. Margaret has undergone several surgeries to treat ACC as well as breast cancer and related complications. "I'll show you my scars if you'll show me yours," she is fond of saying!

It was a little overwhelming meeting so many people at once, but everyone was very friendly and supportive. I had expected to see a lot of bald heads, hats and scarves, the telltale signs of cancer patients, but I was surprised to notice that, unlike Coni, many of the members were currently undergoing treatments that did not cause them to lose their hair. Tim, Arlyn, Margaret and many of the others looked perfectly normal. In fact, had one been unaware of the purpose of the day's gathering, there would have been no reason to guess that many of the attendees had undergone all sorts of nasty surgeries and treatments, that many were still fighting for their lives.

In addition to the ACCompassion members, I was reunited with Dr. Fojo, who had treated Coni at the National Institute of Health in Maryland and was one of the presenters at the Symposium. He greeted me with a hug and reflected on his memories of Coni -- her upbeat attitude and the support she received from her family and me.

During one of our trips to Maryland, an assistant to Dr. Fojo commented to Coni and me that Dr. Fojo truly takes a personal interest in each of his patients, which is what motivates him to continue searching for a cure for ACC. After meeting him again in Phoenix, I have no doubt that is true. It is good to know that his memories of Coni and others like her continue to drive him to conduct his research.

As I mentioned in my previous writing, we heard presentations by several doctors and researchers, and I was encouraged at the progress being made. However, the most memorable part for me was meeting so many of the ACCompassion members. It really drove home the importance of the work being done by the doctors who presented that day. Even though it is too late for Coni, there are many lives still waiting to be saved.

China Revisited

Photo Editor's Note: Last year Greg and Sonja Dake visited China for three weeks and kept us entertained with firsthand reports and photographs for several months. Last week, Eric Bergeson set off for China and has posted reports and photos from Shanghai on his web log, The Country Scribe, and in his weekly newspaper column. I thought you might find them interesting, too.

Pearl Harbor Days
In this series, Ruth Kitto tells of her experiences as a 21-year-old newlywed in Hawaii just after World War II.

Cooking Up Homemade Fun In Hawaii
By Ruth (Weiland Swanson) Kitto

Apache Junction, AZ

During our year at Pearl Harbor I worked full time, so we just had weekends to go sightseeing and do the usual things, shopping on Saturdays, etc. We didn't have the $$$ to do much more than work, etc. Vern loved to cook, so I thought you'd enjoy those pictures. We had friends there, so we had meals with them a lot and we had company, too. There was not much on the base for us to do, so we just lived the quiet life of newly-marrieds.

Our Sundays were a lot of just driving around the island -- looking at the Blow Hole, etc. Our "sightseeing trips" would be what they called "around the Pali," which was just a small corner of Oahu. At that time, all the rest of the island was "off limits" to the servicemen (unless they were stationed there for some reason). We did get to the Aloha Tower; it was shorter than the Foshay Tower in Minneapolis but was the tallest building on the island. Of course, now it is dwarfed by all the high-rises, etc.

The tour was usually to check out the fruit and vegetable stands available. We'd never dare eat vegetables that grew in the ground! You probably can guess their growing conditions -- fertilizer sources, etc. The fruit was excellent and a big staple in our eating.

Did we shop? Oh yes, the biggest store was Sears. It even had an escalator in it (about the only one on the island, I think!). It seems to me there was a Woolworth's, and the other usual shopping areas. Wal-Mart was never heard of then.

The parks and zoos were all nicely kept and fun to go to and we did a lot of that. We had a lot of company, several friends, and also visitors from the Mainland, too. We never got to any of the other islands -- at that time. Anyone leaving the base like that was on "leave time" and we had to save up all our "leave time" for the discharge. :-)

Miss Hetty's Mailbox:

Dear Miss Hetty,

Thanks for the cute birthday card. The highlight of the day was cross country skiing on the river. It's the first day we had enough snow, and with the sun shining, it was a beautiful day. About 25 pheasants flew out from under an overhanging tree.

We made Blanche's Homemade Ice Cream and froze it with Tyler's liquid nitrogen -- like a science experiment you could eat!

This is confession time. I have allowed myself to do something that I was totally out of control of.

The Cranberry Chewy Cookies recipe mentioned in our last Bulletin sounded so delicious that I had to make them. So, like robot or puppet or zombie, I was helpless to resist, even though that is the last thing I need -- more cookies around.

They turned out so perfect. The tart cranberry and the sweet cookie combination is irresistible. Actually, they are almost all sampled away, but I did quickly grab the camera so you could see them while there was still one left.

Anyway, Miss Hetty, I highly recommend them, and yet I wouldn't recommend them, as you become hopelessly addicted after the first bite ... does that make sense?

Last Week's Bulletin Review JKL
by Betty Droel
MoundsView, MN

Did I just write Bulletin #237 for the subject? I had just written an LTTE for Bulletin #236 -- now where did all that time go? "Time flies!" THAT is so very true. How can it be that a whole week has disappeared that fast?

This is New Year's Eve ... what a nice first picture for The Bulletin to start with -- 2006 fading into memory, and 2007 coming in loud and clear. When you get to our advanced age, you'll want to sleep in the new year, too. If we happen to hear noises, we do get up and look out to watch the young folks have their fun at 12 o'clock.

Snow, snow, snow! from Alaska to Moorhead and all points in between. Fun to see Rylie's fancy snow family and then to see Snowzilla II, but he better get his hat on or he'll freeze! (He was much bigger than last year's Snowzilla I.) It is to be appreciated when dads take time to play in the snow with their children.

Beaver's birthday steaks in the fireplace... Very clearly I remember having MY birthday steaks from that very same fireplace.

We liked hearing from Anita again. I must try the Cranberry Chewy Cookies.

Thanks, Diana, for your good wishes for our new year, and I wish you knew how sincerely we are all wishing you the same. A day at a time gets us through, but sometimes we have to take an hour at a time.

I loved clicking on the link and looking at all the Holiday Greetings from the subscribers. The Bulletin has a very faithful following, and when the time comes, each rises to add their stories and pictures. That way it's always so fresh and lively and interesting, plus all the pictures ... and thinking of it already being #237 and it's still so full of heartwarming, real life. That is just amazing to me.

Any picture of Carrie Horne always turns out so cute! Excellent caption on that one!

Roy and I don't think we're very sick at all after reading about Caity Chap being hospitalized for her serious condition. Actually, we are still under the weather, but slowly using fewer boxes of Kleenex, so that must mean improvement.

Cap'n Jack, you made us spend a lot of time trying to bring up this picture of Rufus, and come to find out, it was all a joke. However, the shadow in the frame looked familiar.

I really appreciated Jack's honest, frank, life's story. He turned out to be a very fine man, but maybe better not tell him that -- he hears it often enough from Virginia.

WOW, a whole page of Beaver and Buster! Donna Mae must have a framed version of that. Interesting how Buster has a gray beard also.

Weston must have made it back safely from Arizona ... Is that mistletoe just above Jessy? I've never seen a "pillow version" of a child's book. And Donna, do you mean you really gave Brooklynn a cell phone? Tell us more.

FINALLY, Beaver gave us another great story. They are few and far between, but very well worth waiting for.

And Weston's Travelogue captured our interest from the first word to the last. Once again, we are glad it's to be continued. I love that when a story is continued -- piques our interest. He took some great pictures to illustrate the story so we could easily follow along.

Pearl Harbor Days was again so very, very interesting to me. I had not heard (that I remember) any of those details, and it made me laugh and cry at the same time to think of what my dear sister was doing. I guess we imagined it was one big wonderful vacation going to Hawaii. Sounds like all the details were never forgotten. Thank goodness that, too, is to be continued.

Ruth has always been a successful Medical Secretary in every part of a doctor's office, and she had her own transcribing business from home. She taught the Medical Secretary course in an adult college in Phoenix. These experiences in Hawaii were her beginning to use the training she had just finished at the Minneapolis Business College. I'm anxious for the next chapter now. She finally retired when she became Mrs. Kenny Kitto.

I always look to see who wrote an LTTE besides me, and was nice to see one from Tom Miller from Madera, California.

Oh, how can it be this has gotten so long? Thanks again, for all your hours and days of work to produce The Bulletin. You can certainly see we all appreciate it. Have a Happy New Year.

Roy and Betty Droel
