October is birthday month for our immediate family with birthdays October 6, 13, 16, and 21. Forty years ago today, my baby, Jennifer Ann Dunn, was born in rural New Orleans, LA—it was one of the happiest days of my life. At the time I was a member of the Engineering Department faculty at the University of New Orleans. Scheduled to give a test that evening, Jenny’s mother’s water broke and I hurriedly asked good friend, Joey Dykes, to proctor the test. We rushed to the hospital, and Jenny was born later that evening. Happy birthday, Jenny.
I played in a golf scramble midday with a group from church, with more good shops than bad. Our team tied for first, but lost in the draw after the matches. Kay had a “cut and color” in the late afternoon, and I continued working on the 200-watt briefcase solar system.
