When I was young I lived two blocks from Borgess Hospital. This building’s inhabited my memories as long as I’ve had memories.
Since we were already in Minnesota for my class reunion, we visited my sister. Debbie, a Lutheran pastor, was serving churches at Winthrop and Fernando.
I took photographs, and pretended to help with the asparagus.
While my sister was in seminary we regularly visited Iowa–to help her move, usually, but a couple times just to visit. In 2003 we followed the Mississippi down to Davenport and watched a ballgame.
Also on this date, in 2006: My sister, Debra Jean, graduated from Wartburg Seminary in Dubuque.
We’d go to the farm and I’d take pix of the granary. It was pretty much an irresistible photo subject. I miss it.
Two years ago we dropped in at the farm to help celebrate David’s birthday, a couple days late. Dave had gotten his father’s old tractor to run a few days before, so that was the main topic of discussion.
