Saturday, January 28th, 1961, a beautiful sunshine day, We were married in St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Riverside, IL. On our honeymoon we flew to Zurich, Switzerland and on to Davos for a weeks skiing, then Lech, Austria for another. Took the Orient Express to Vienna, which was still bombed out from WW2. We flew to Paris, France for our last week. Remember having lunch on the Eiffel Tower and all the wonderful amenities that Paris had to offer. Left Paris on a Super Constellation (propeller driven) and hit a storm over the Atlantic and couldn’t get higher than 10,000 feet. Ran short of fuel and made an emergency landing in Gander Newfoundland in a raging snow storm with elk running across the landing strip. Lot’s of memories.
Below, getting ready for some fantastic ice boating.
