Dave was amazed to see this fellow standing up on his surfboard and rowing with a long paddle. Dennis said it was "paddle surfing" and was quite the rage out there.

An overcast February day with temperatures below 60 degrees F did not discourage these kids from wading in the surf.

Connie and Dave last Friday went to a Rock Island performance by Dave Lippman, a fundraiser for the local community meal, and found the act hysterically funny. These 2 videos are very close to the first part of the performance that Connie and Dave saw:

Dave, with his brother and sister-in-law, Dan and Pat, took his father to visit his first cousin, Herbert Degner, in Freeport, IL on 27 Dec, 2008. Herb and Hugh were born 4 months apart in 1923 and saw each often as children. They have only visited each other 3 or 4 times in the last 60 years. Hugh enjoyed the visit and drive up and back immensely.
