A "Blast From the Past"

Last week daddy took us to the college that he graduated from, Roberts Wesleyan College, for some forensic programs and labs. We went early so that daddy could surprise an old college friend, who is now a professor in the Seminary there. Daddy just walked in on him in the room that he was meeting with some students.

When Dr. Grimm realized who daddy was he couldn't believe it and said, "A blast from the past". When the class was over, daddy and Dr. Grimm got to catch up and we got to hear a few crazy things from their college days.

One crazy night in the dorm in the 1970's. Daddy is in the front and Dr. Grimm is behind him to the right.

Daddy water-skiing on Lake Ontario. One weekend several of his friends went to one of their parents summer place on the lake. It was the first of May, and the ice had just melted on the lake and daddy remembers it being VERY COLD!

Daddy and Dr. Grimm 30 some years later!

In the evening program, the very interesting speaker was Clint Van Zandt, a well know name in the FBI, and the one who brought Ted Kaczynsi, the unabomber down. We learned alot about forensics and detective work!
