Jim and I were married 38 years ago today. This is a favorite picture taken in 1976. 
UAD Laboratories arranged for Ronald Reagan to be Guest Speaker at Minden Chamber of Commerce. 


Before event a private reception was held at Pat and Shorty Long's home for Ronald Reagan. Just one of many good memories over the years!


Billy and I were living in Houston in'76,

reason I was surprised when I read thison face book.

Wondered if anyone else remembered this?

But back then Ronald Reagan was still an actor,in most folks mind..

Read on Wikipedia his term as governor of California ended in '75, guess that's why he was free to come to little townslike Minden...


So there ya have it.!

We've had some 'pretty famous' visitors to our fair city over the years..
