Re: Nick Botner's 50th Wedding Anniversary
, what’s amazing is to have been around ‘long enough’ to have met many of the charter members, like Larry McGraw… http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cg ... d=33619541
...and I can’t/ won’t attempt to name the many others who helped shape my orchard, or my view on life for that matter.
...as we slowly morph into societal elders I can only hope to fill out the shoes of those folks … including some very ..tolerant wives… Not that collecting fruit varieties isn’t a healthier pass time than many, but it’s remained obvious to me how the ‘truly great’ of our organization were fully supported by their spouses, both men & women, and what a pleasure and honor to have met both. Lots to live up to, for sure - but what a positive and productive legacy!
