Views from previous trips around the sun

4 0f the 5 Clark boys...from left, Champ, Rex, Terrence and Mike. Notice those big smiles on Champ and Rex. You should hear them laugh. Not pictured...Lewis. This trip around the sun has been blessed by making contact with cousins I've rarely or never seen, children of Champ and Lewis.

Granmother Cuba Jon Milller Clark Reasor, and with Mike

Easter Sunday, Dad, Jerry, me and Mom,
Sandia Base, Albuquerque

Terry--first grade...Jerry and our dog Mike, in front of our house on Sandia Base

Mountain brothers...near our cabin south of Albuquerque...me trying to paint

New Mexico in my blood, on the banks of the Rio Grande,
in the gorge south of Taos, on a trip with students.
