Daughter Julie with Humble Blogger dad (including frozen beard) cross country skiing  at Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids, MN  on January 1, 1979.  Julie  "froze" this outing and was never comfortable in the cold.  She's always wanted to move to a warmer climate and finally did so June 30, 2017.  She sees the Atlantic ocean from her new place.  We will miss her!
