Joan and I settled in LaConner, in 1987, twenty-two years ago. Most everything in Whistling was written in the last eight years. The reason the pace has picked up has less to do with the artistic spirit that surely roams the Valley and more to do with our ages. Time is running out. Except for a few snapshots and letters, our parents left us little information regarding their past and their thinking on the issues of the day. Joan and I want to be sure we leave more of a paper trail for our children and grandchildren. Hard- copies of everything in three-ring note books are awkward to handle and store. Digital printing for the small number of books we need seems the way to go. Not so unusual these days, we plan to produce soon a second volume, entitled Whittling, which will contain our memoirs, a travel section and some of Joan’s poems and letters using the same digital format.
Although Whistling is written primarily for our scattered families, we are more than happy to share it with friends and any others who might find something within its pages to enjoy, laugh at, mull over or even take exception to.
