years and years of living and wisdom close at hand. Lively conversation
bubbles across the tables. So many topics about grandchildren, friends
that have passed on and events in the recent past and future.

so good to be alive and in the company of our respected American
Indian TONKAWA Elders. The tables looked fine and we sat down to
a splendid feast.

copy of the newspaper hot off the press! Good stories and great
