Bill Hilton ~ Chaka ~ Lizard ~ Macaroon Day

Good 37º clear morning.
The end of May already. Too fast....
This is going to be one of those days.. heater on in the morning, AC on in the afternoon!


Yesterday morning early I had a call from Carol that Bill Hilton had passed away about 10pm on Tuesday. Bill was an interesting guy. His father was in the German Army.... WWI:

He had Bill enlist in Hitler's Youth Corps and from there Bill went into the German Army during WWII.
In this photo, 3rd from right.... He fought in Italy and was shot through and through his upper legs. He spent time in a hospital there. He said wine was snuck in to those being cared for....
Bill with his maternal grandmother...

And Bill out of the Army....


He told me once that he was told the Americans were the ones killing the Jews. When he found out the real truth he left Germany, came to the US and never went back. He was a good neighbor. He helped us out with a lot of things when we first moved here. He was kind hearted and LOVED his dogs! RIP Bill.



Yesterday I did errands... post office (found out that Wednesday night the Cave Junction post office burned to the ground), stopped to see Tim Alden in his new leather shop in town. He makes boots and chaps etc.  Interesting:
Yeshua's blood????   "At-One-Ment" ????

Then to Safeway for a few items, Brian's office for a quick visit, then to Jeannie and Bill's.

Chaka was her charming self...
Jeannie and I had some wine and enjoyed the beautiful view from their deck...
... while I was taking pictures Mr. Lizzzzard was watching..
Bill drilled some holes in the sign I bought at Boatnik.. it will go up soon...
