This is a picture of me at Flint Assembly sometime in the 1970's. I appear to be filing process sheets which had a picture, part specifications and change history for every part on the vehicle. I would have been building Blazers and Suburbans at the time.

The IBM terminals in the background were connected to a IBM 360 mainframe two floors above. We didn't have any personal computers at this time.

I have some more pictures of Andrew McRoy's wedding that tell a little more of the story.

Hauger Family Reunion

The reunion was held at John and Nancy Welch's this year. John had chicken that he and Uncle Richard Hauger had parboiled the day before and that they barbecued on the trailer type grill that we rented. The food was set up in the garage. There was really too much of it. Bill Hauger made pies that were really good. I got to try Grandma Hauger's goulash. I really loved it.

Sue did games for the kids with the mandatory water balloons. We had filled them in the old bathtub at our house so by the time we got to Vassar a bunch of them had broken for unknown reasons but the rest of them were luke warm. I had to hold the bucket in the balloon toss so I like warm water balloons.

I talked to Jake Leiber for quite awhile. We talked about my dad in the war and what I knew about what he did. I related what had happened at the Battle of the Tenaru that Dad took part in.

Eric Hauger was there. He is going to do some logging with horses next winter. I offered to help The experience would be great.

Rite Aide Shopping Card

Sue and I bought two resin love seats for the patio yesterday at Rite-Aide. We found out about their new shoppers card and about signing up for the online coupons. I did both today. Their shopper card is very like what Kroger does. In order to get the sale price on a item you have to have the card. You don't have to carry it. The clerk can enter your phone number and qualify you. At any rate we got our rebate and learned about another way to save money.
