Saturday, December 15 - The third house we owned was
a 4,000 square foot 'mansion' in Hillsborough, CA at 25

$140K and sold it for about $280K. It had a huge family room
with 30 foot ceilings. Four bedrooms with a master suite about
30' by 40'. Separate kitchen, formal dining room and huge living
room. Had a 3 car garage. A small room off the garage was my
original office and used when I started The Bridge, Inc. in

Thursday, December 13 - While browsing the web I used
Google Street View to locate the home we owned in Downers Grove,
Illinois. Address: 6200 Lyman. It was the first home we ever owned.
It was brand new. Bought it in 1971. Paid about $40K for it. Sold
it in 1974 for about $60K. A split level home with a basement under
the right side kitchen, dining room and living room. There were
three bedrooms and two baths in the upper center section with a large family room under the bedrooms. It was
a great family home for the four of us. We planted the trees which are now very large.

Monday, December 3 - Played with Carl Haese, Ron Gunn
and Charlie Wall today in the skins game. I had one tied birdie.
Carl played well but only had 3 birdies and got paid for one. He
probably would have posted a 51. Ron and Charlie got paid for one
as well. Net - lost $1.00. Lots of tied birdies. There were 16 players.
It was a chilly morning but warmed up nicely by the time we finished.
Saturday, December 1 - Played in the couples scrambles
with Jack Risch, Maine Tonkin, Joanna Reynolds, Paulette Vickers
and Carolee Moesch. We were 7 under. Four shots out of the money.
Jack was our hero - we used his tee shot on most of the holes. I
did not help much. The winners had 40 - 14 under. There were 85
players. It was a cool morning but warmed up nicely into the low
70s by the time we finished.
