At this point in my life, I decided to put life''s memories together for my family. In 1922, I was born on a farm in the southwest corner of Mahaska County, Iowa. I am now 85 years old and have lived the BEST life! With this book I hope I can pass along some of the highlights of these 85 years! In my mind, all of it has been fun!World War II entered my life in December of 1942. After 30 hours of pilot training I washed out and went to airplane mechanics school in Biloxi, Mississippi.Out of the War in February of ''46, on a Friday. Bought a restaurant on Saturday and went to work on Monday-my life has centered around it ever since.I met my wife of 56 years in 1950. Dorene and I had 4 great children and she has a great business sense. Along the way I was in numerous sidelines (wholesale route, bottling works, grocery store, Joe''s Short Order in the Chicago Loop).All the way from Bussey, Iowa to Indianola, it''s been great. I hope my family and friends will enjoy this story of my life.
