October 22-26, 2014: This has been an enjoyable week and weekend. First, Wanda and Mark Ostler (my sister and brother-in-law) visited from Pleasanton. They stayed over for our Friday night Miller Eccles Study Group meeting, featuring BYU professor Craig Harline talking about his outstanding mission memoir Way Below the Angels. Then we spent the weekend in San Diego where Dawn spoke at a special dinner of the San Diego Genealogy Society. We used the opportunity to walk along the boardwalk and take in the USS Midway Museum.
We were pleasantly surprised to see this statue, called “Unconditional Surrender,” based on an iconic photo taken at the end of World War II. The statue stood next to the USS Midway. (Click on the photo to make it larger.)
