Very nice picture...I wish I had the time each day to read your blog...but life is short and so I am too busy eating dessert first....but I'll try!!!!

Given the choice between my blog and dessert, I would opt for dessert. Hope you can tune in sometimes between spoonfuls.

Blogging isn't allowed to interfere with dessert at my house either, Dick!

Hello Mr. Klade-
I am the granddaughter of your cousin Margaret Hoerr (Swift) and my great-gramma was Esther Klade Swift (we called her Ma) your Aunt. I love reading your blog because your picture looks so like my Gramma Hoerr. The Klade family resemblance is strong!
I am the family "keeper of stories" and have so many wonderful memories of Ma and all her family from Tomahawk. I know my mother and aunts have read your book "Days With Dads" and enjoyed it so much, and I hope to read it myself someday if my mom can remember who she loaned it to! ha!
I spent many good times with Ma at her little house in Mankato- she lived to be 103 1/2 and I was lucky enough to give the eulogy at her funeral. We were very close. She was so fun and full of life right up to the end. Her stories of the tailor shop, riding horse through town, taffy pulls and putting on "theatricals" with her friends kept me well entertained and connected to family in ways that I will hold tight to forever.
Love the blog! You are an amazing writer -
