A Bennett boy, a five star handyman, etc.

This is a picture of one of my first cousins. I think it is either Fred or Harold Bennett, but I am not sure which. I am hoping one of my many relatives/friends on Facebook will be able to clear it up.

Thanks to our friend Ted, we have a handyman who can do just about anything. This week he is fixing our plaster problems, constructing a privacy fence, power washing the deck as well as numerous other jobs.

A golfing friend of Richard encountered a person in Florida the other day wearing an OSU sweatshirt. They struck up a conversation. Ohio people tend to do this shortly after OSU/Michigan games no matter what the outcome. At any rate, this person was the son of the lady who had the boarding house where Richard lived in Washington C.H. when he was first teaching at Miami Trace. I remember Dorothy and her son Jeff, also. She treated her roomers and their girlfriends like family. One time she even lent Richard her Cadillac to visit me in Massillon before we got married. It is a small world and we are all connected.

Those are great stories! Matt thinks Daddy is really from 1915 with the boarding house story.
