** Sentimental Journey **

This evening is the end of a very busy week. It was very rewarding speaking to grade school and high school students on three separate days. Then today, Ron and I attended the Homecoming Events at Parks College of Engineering, Aviation & Technology. (part of St. Louis University)

Parks Fly-In Pancake Breakfast
St. Louis Downtown Airport, Cahokia IL
*We didn't fly-in...we drove! Met a very nice man, graduate of 1959.

Parks College and Institute of Technology
Alumni Merit Awards Luncheon Ceremony & Reception
Il Monastero
*Very deserving recipients and yummy food.

Parks College and Institute of Technology Open House
McDonnell Douglas Hall
*Everyone should visit here. Wonderful wall of history timeline, sometimes guided tours given by Rob the Robot!
*A new wall just opened with names & photos of past and present faculty and staff. So proud to see my dad's photo in at least 2 different places. He would've been so pleased!


  1. I would love to sit in on one of your talks, right there in the back, smashed into a tiny little elementary school desk. I'd learn so much!

  2. That's very cool! My dad also worked at McDonnell Douglas for many years in the aerospace division. We have a few neat photos and memorabilia.

  3. Love it! Love the pictures! Glad it went so well.

  4. Hi Everyone! Thanks for all your wonderful comments. I am so blessed to have such sweet and thoughtful friends! You made my day!

  5. Hi Becky,
    What a wonderful experience. Thanks for sharing with us all.
    When I clicked on your site the song "Sentimental Journey" was playing. How appropriate! Gave me chills!

  6. Oh my gosh! That really is one of those ESP or Twilight Zone kind of moments that I just love! Thanks for leaving your comment!
