53 years ago I made a marionette in Ted's wood shop for the KK marionette show. Still remember every step of how I did it, or at least so I hope. I've committed to making a Sound of Music marionette with each of my three granddaughters. Ordered a band saw and sander from Amazon. Plastic wood for head still available. Who would have ever thought?

Sad to hear of recent passings of dear friends - Allen Robinson, Johnnie Weiss (the greatest second baseman of his KK time), Steve Shultz, etc. The time is coming for us all, I'm afraid; why don't we start having reunions every year?

Hi All
Haven't logged on forever. Am still here! So sad to hear of Allen Robinson's passing. If memory serves, Allen played catcher for our kamper baseball team. He was left handed, but since no left handed catcher gloves were available, he made do with a right handed glove. Always had a smile.

Equally sad to hear of Johnny Weiss's passing. As all of us know, he threw a wicked fast ball and thrived on all KK sports. I recall sitting with him at one of our recent reunions. He told me hitting a professional curve ball was a real challenge. I don't know about that. His KK stuff was way beyond my skill. So, I stuck to swimming in the tank!

Hope this note finds all of you well. Kee Kee Wah

I am sorry to report that Allen Robinson (Baltimore) died this week. He was clever, bright, successful and a community leader. He will also be remembered as the winner every time in the "plunge". Dave

I just read a post that Camp (with C) Kennebec had its 110th anniversary reunion in April. Isn't 2017 the 100th anniversary of KK? We should have some acknowledgement or celebration.

I just got word that Johnny Weiss died. Johnny was a great athlete
during his KK years. He taught photography at the U of Delaware and led photo expeditions. A few years ago he moved to Los Angeles, I believe to be closer to his daughter. Judging from the postings on FB he was a beloved teacher and mentor. A sad day!

Greetings Kamp Kewaneeans,
My Dad is JP Goldsmith, camper '55-'60, counselor '63-'67. His 70th birthday is this Sunday, May 21st. I thought it might be a fun surprise to locate pictures/quotes/stories from his time at Kewanee. If anyone would like to share pictures/quotes/stories about JP, please email me at goldsmith.slg@gmail.com. I greatly appreciate it, thank you!

Knocker knocks for lunches I've enjoyed this year with Lee Kalcheim in New York, Michael Lieberman in Oceanside (California), and Steve Moses in Palm Springs (also California)! Almost made me see if there were any KKers lunching in La Plume!

Ted Bromwell will be 90 April 22. His phone number is 412-321-4118. I hope some of you who remember him will give him a call.

Donald Trump is notorious for not paying his bills and has relied on his Russian connection to bail him out on occasion. He might need to do so again someday so he can't afford to offend them. That's why this little- noticed local event is so telling.
A Russian and a Czechoslovakian recently visited the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. They were attacked and eaten by a mating-pair of black bears. The Park Rangers got there too late, and had to shoot both bears.
The Russian Ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, was appalled and demanded Trump make the US government find his countryman's remains.

Confronted with this, Trump & the ambassador came in person to Knoxville TN to pressure the park service to cut open the female bear. When they did as ordered, Trump pointed and said to Kislyak "There, these are the Russian's remains."

Kislyak asked, "How do you know this one is the Russian?

Trump replied, "Because the Czech is in the male.

Janet was active in many organizations in the Pittsburgh community and they all had representatives at her funeral last Tuesday. It was a huge event. She deserved it.
