Scraps from a research dead-end: I asked my parents about the psychologist who led the cross-cultural missions training at “Bibletown” in Boca Raton, Florida, in 1978, and my father remembered a name — Bob Velk — and not much more. Google pulled up a Bob Velk who wrote the book from which I pulled this page. I suspect it’s not the same man, but if I’m wrong, I’m intrigued. #MTC

This is Clara Hustad, or perhaps her sister Lillie. (Opinions differ and no one still breathing can settle the question. So perhaps for our purposes it doesn’t matter. Perhaps it’s both. This is a picture of Clara and Lillie? Maybe.) #MTC #CuteNorwegianFarmGirlsfromWisconsin

"Like a unicorn w/out the sticker."
Notepad thoughts slipped into a Bigso box, rediscovered much later but unaccompanied by clues as to why they were preserved. (The sticker business, though — once and former eight-year-old girls might understand.)
