1966

We now lived in Verona, 10 miles or so to the west.  (Upper right apartment.) Although Joyce was pregnant. I suppose we moved because it cut perhaps a third of the time & distance off my commute to National Electrostatics in Middleton.

Anyway, Bill Krecji, I and a trailer got the move done in short order as we had not acquired much in the way of material things in just a few months of marriage.

David was born on July 11.  This picture was taken about 2 months later.  We are very proud of our little boy, and start thinking of ourselves as a family. 

 

We purchased the Ford Falcon just before we were married, mostly from Joyce's savings.  (She worked in the office at Consolidated Papers in Wisconsin Rapids for several years while I was going to school in Madison.)  

This is the first car either of us owned, and being a convertible made it all the sweeter.  (Sep '66)

Pastor Lange performed David's baptism at Grandma and Grandpa Fisher's home. 

Howie Lipke and sister Pat were sponsors.

Grandpa Fisher's foot was in a cast due to a work related accident at the mill. (Something about a suspended, swinging roll of paper catching or pinching his leg and foot between it and some solid support.)

Grandpa and Grandma (Donald and Dorothy) Piltz also witnessed the baptism.
