Bob Rittenburg's daughter Ann writes:
"I think I'll call the attached photo: 'My father's life as told in sailing trophies ...' And mind you, these are only the sailing trophies ... and furthermore, only the sailing trophies from his adult life -- trophies won during my lifetime!!
Wait until I get to the track trophies!!
You'd think I'd be nice enough to polish them all before photographing them, but alas, I didn't have that kind of time! I will catalog them all, though!
It is actually a very nice way to continue to process Bob's death and to continue to feel all of the love and pride I have for him and of him ... and to continue to honor his life."


05/23/12:
Members of the Class of 1955 display a banner in their "class color," blue. The Class of 2012 are reviving the "class color" tradition, and their color is also blue. The event took place on Class Day in the Tercentenary Theatre on May 23, 2012.

HERE IS A PIC OF ME PROUDLY SHOWING OFF AN 8 LB LAKE TROUT I CAUGHT WHILE VISITING KLUANE LAKE IN THE YUKON TERRITORY.
KLUANE LAKE, LOCATED ~160 MILES NW OF WHITEHORSE, IS THE LARGEST LAKE IN THE TERRITORY.
WHILE THIS FISH LOOKS GOOD TO ME MY HOST TOLD ME THAT BY KLUANE LAKE STANDARDS, WHERE THEY RUN UP TO 35-40 LB, IT'S A MINNOW.

Here's a shot of me during our recent cruise around South America.
Maybe after seeing the hat we'll be able to recruit some penguins for the swim team as Renny's raccoon coat did for the football team.
If you zoom in on the sign you'll see it's a warning about possible mines in the area. I stayed on the path.
