Ed, I just finished this thread and learned that your dad passed away on my Mom's birthday, October 24. My prayers and condolences to you and the rest of your family. May the peace of God, which passes all understanding, fill the hearts and minds of you and each of your family members.

your friend in Christ,

Don't know how I missed this when you first posted it, Lewis, but I wanted to thank you for your kind words. Coincidentally, just since my Dad died in October, my mother-in-law died in November and my Dad's sister died in January. All three were in their 90s. For anyone interested, Google "Margaret Snyder" to learn about the founder of UNIFEM. She owned an apartment across the street from her long-time employer, the United Nations. Aunt Margaret took my wife and me on a tour of the UN building in 2000 where we got to see Nelson Mandela speaking to the Security Council.

Ed I did look her up and "Peg" had quite the life!
Talk about living your life to the fullest as an author, educator, scholar, traveler/explorer and being a pioneer in Women's economic equality; She was way ahead of the curve.

Thanks, Henry. Aunt Peg's resume really puts mine to shame. She certainly fit a lot of accomplishments into her life. Up until a couple of months ago she still walked everywhere in NYC. She had just moved into an assisted living facility back "home" in East Syracuse to be near her brother and other family members when her health took a nosedive. She passed away less than a week short of her 92nd birthday.

Seeing the Henry J photo on your post reminded me of a friend from my freshman year in college. He had a Henry J that he was working on to turn it into a drag strip special.

Some of you may be familiar with the Bring a Trailer website. Beware though -- it can suck you end and you can spend way too many hours on it! The youngest of my eight siblings, known as Auto Traitor on BaT, scored today by being selected for "Comment of the Day". See https://bringatrailer.com/todayonbat/2022-02-19/ You'll have to scroll way down past all the photos of vehicles for sale first, then click on "No Reserve: 1959 Plymouth Sport Suburban Project" to read Pete's whole comment. Since Pete was born in 1965, he can be excused for mis-remembering the Plymouth as a '59 when it was actually a '57.

That was a monster of a wagon with those big rear fins out back.

Thanks, Funky! Here are a couple of photos of what the '57 Plymouth Suburban looked like. Ours was the gold color.
