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 din't have that kind of time! I will catalog them all,
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."
Members of the Class of 1955 display a
banner in their "class color" blue. The Class of 2012 is 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.

I harvested. There is also a shot of some that my wife Marilyn canned

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.
