Marvelous, Karen. Thank you for sharing this. Happy NewYear!

Karen Rexrode

Thank-you Lynn, It's always good to reflect on our past, in this case a person's distant past. I have loved reading his diary and how much things have changed in the past 80 years, so much! Happy New Year to you!


Fascinating! I understand your interest. A few years ago I came across a simple postcard from a young woman released from the military at the end of the 2nd World War. That led to exploring the neighborhood where she grew up Down East - coincidentally not far from Adair's. Doesn't your imagination just start spinning?

So you can imagine 5 years of history, written with a fountain pen, 79 years ago. The movies that were playing, the cost of things, it does get the imagination spinning!

Karen, I was so excited when I saw my Uncle Glenn's diary. The car that Uncle Glenn borrowed was my father's, Rudolph's (RFD in diary). I was born in 1942 and only met my uncle a few times. Shortly after he married Lois in December 1942, they moved to Baltimore and cut all ties with the family. My father and Uncle Glenn were always close and all attempts from the family to connect were ignored. Thank you for trying to find family members and if you still have the diary, I would be interested in it. Again, thank you. Hazel Dettweiler Bohling


I am smiling large with your comment. Yes, the dairy is yours and we can figure out how to get it to you. My email is [email protected] so please connect with me.
