    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    My wife's grandmother and first cousin had a towel dryer bar in the bathroom of their house and condo (town house). Very much needed to keep warm in the very cold English heating systems. On a trip in the 1970's we visit one of grandma's neighbors who had a beautiful brick bungalow like you would see in Clayton, and the only heat was an open fireplace. Grandma had money so she had a big hot water boiler system heating a 21 room house. My wife's uncle lived in a Council House apartment (like our housing projects-multi story). When the heat was turned on, it was never shut off, no controls in individual apartments. Unusual family-grandma in the ritzy place on the Coast near the Isle of White, and her son in a Council house. apartment. I can't explain it.

    Was the towel bar heated, Frank?
