|Beth with Uncle Clarence|
We started off Friday in Rochester, Indiana, where we visited Beth's Uncle Clarence Basanda. Clarence is a city boy turned serious farmer, who retired from a garage building business to farming over three decades ago. He farmed actively until in his late 70s, and now lives in a retirement community.

Following our visit with Uncle Clarence, we headed south on US31 to Indianapolis, where I lived with my parents in the late 60s. Their home at that time was in Lawrence township, and was at the outer edge of the "Naptown" area, bordered at that time by forests and corn fields. The neighborhood later became annexed by the once-farming community of Castleton, which now is fully suburban. This home at 7046 Bexley is my clear favorite of all the homes I have lived in during my life. Two milestone events I remember from my days there are the assination of Robert Kennedy, and the first Moon Landing.
