Aug 12, 2019 - Church of the day...St. Jude's, Beloit WI

Church of the Day. St. Jude's Beloit Wisconsin. Actually, this is the parish church in which I grew up. Lived a few blocks away and attended elementary school there (Brother Dutton Elementary School) through the 6th grade before we moved to Brazil in 1960. These pictures show the church as well as the adjacent elementary school. Went to Mass every school day as well as Sundays. First Communion, all the Saint's days...the whole (RC) 9 yards. I joke, but many fond memories. I was able to attend service there yesterday with my Brother Pat and...

One Day @ a Time

Sep 2, 2016 - Sky Diving!

As a (late) birthday present for Colton, we went skydiving at Sky Dive the Rock in Beloit, WI! In the couple months prior to this, we had brought up in conversation how we enjoy gifts in which we get to experience things. Additionally, we had discussed a list of things we would like to experience on our bucket list. Sky diving being one of those. It was an exhilarating experience we will never forget. I was nervous leading up to the event, and then calmed down once we got to the site. Quite the opposite, Colton did not know about the event...

Jul 20, 2015 - Beloit Wisconsin

Had a GREAT visit with my brother Pat and his family. Lots to catch up on. He has finally decided to retire, so they have closed the auto shop and are not working to sell the equipment and hopefully sell or lease the building and property. They have run the shop for more than 30 years, with Pat being the service advisor and Donna running the business office. Just a great time all around.

Takin the Slow Road

Jul 20, 2011 - Visiting friends in Beloit

Wednesday afternoon we went to the home of one of Brian's closest high school friends, in Beloit Wisconsin. We hadn't seen Scott and his wife, Renee, since 1997, when they had two young kids and we had just had one! Beloit is located just over the border from Illinois, an hour or so from Chicago. They have an old house - just like us, and have been doing it over for about 10 years, just like us. It was fun to compare the kinds of projects we've done and what we have planned. Scott and Renee have 3 kids, the oldest is a boy who is just...

Aug 3, 2009 - On The Road US-90

Rise and shine! Its 9:45AM EST when we left Cleveland, Ohio. Our travels took us through Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and finally we stopped in Beloit, WI around 8:15PM CST. The drive through Chicago was quicker then we expected with moving traffic and few stops! Weather was clear all the way! Nice views of Chicago Loop and we took many pictures. Today our rear bedroom AC stopped working! We decided that we would head to Forest City, IA to get it fixed. Tonight, we are staying at a Wal-Mart Super Center with 3 other RV Campers and many Truckers!...
