This is a family newsletter that is sent infrequently to
the descendants of the Grimland family for whom e-mail addresses are known.
GRIMLAND FAMILY MEETING. A reminder that the next
Grimland family meeting will be on June 22 (Saturday) at the Civic
Center at 403 West 3rd Street in Clifton. It will start at 10:00
am, and we bring our lunches to better utilize our time. Wanda and Bill Mobley
will bring brisket and buns for everyone; so, bring other items
that you want for yourself to eat and to drink. Everyone is
welcome to attend. The focus of the meeting will be to review the status
of our family tree efforts, to determine areas to focus on, and to make
additional plans for the Grimland Family Reunion.
GRIMLAND FAMILY REUNION. The first full Grimland
family reunion in about sixty years is still being planned for the
National Guard Armory in the City Park at Clifton on October 5 (Saturday).
It will include a potluck lunch. Additional information will be
FAMILY HEALTH CONCERNS. Many in the family have had
recent health problems and concerns. Brief information will follow in
alphabetical order. Especially for those with continuing problems,
remember them in your spiritual life and thoughts.
BONNIE GRIMLAND. Bonnie
Solberg Grimland of Clifton, TX has had chest pains, a urinary tract
infection, and congestion. After many tests at the hospitals in
Clifton and Temple, serious correctable problems were not found. After
also feeling much better, she has been staying with daughter Joyce David near
CEIGAL GRIMLAN. Ceigal
Carroll Grimlan of Artesia, NM has been very weak and has had difficulty
keeping food down. Tests are being conducted on her.
CHANDRA HAMILTON. Chandra
Solberg Hamilton of San Antonio, TX has had difficulties with an ovarian cyst
that resulted in a hysterectomy, surgical adjustments to her bladder, and
cleansing of endometriosis from inside her abdomen. After several
weeks of impatient recovery, she is doing much better.
BOBBY DALE POE. Bobby Dale of
Lometa, TX has had sleep apnea, which has aggravated his congestive heart
failure and prostrate cancer. He is to have 38 weeks of radiation
RUELL SOLBERG, JR. During the surgery
on daughter Chandra, Ruell of San Antonio, TX temporarily lost vision in his
right eye. After his vision returned and quite a number of tests,
no problems were found.
KENNETH WATSON. Kenneth,
youngest son of Aubrey (Buster) and Rhonda Watson of Jal, NM had a bone graft
on his leg on June 12. He had knee surgery last September, and the
damage was much more extensive than was anticipated.
OLD GRIMLAND FAMILY PICTURE. Bruce Wiland has added
an old popular Grimland family picture to the Grimland family
website at www.grimland.org
and would like to identify all in the picture. If you can help with the
names of some of them, you can contact Bruce at firstname.lastname@example.org
. He also wants to learn when and where the picture was taken.
UFF DA. Uff da is an all purpose expression that is
not in the dictionary, but it covers a wide variety of situations and is a
common slang term. Uff da is an appropriate comment for the following:
noticing non-Norwegians using lefse as a napkin at a church dinner; arriving
late at a lutefisk supper and getting served minced ham instead; looking in
the mirror and discovering that you are not getting better, but older;
spilling glass of milk by a young child at the breakfast table; stubbing
your toes on the bedpost during the night; and finding out that someone is not Norwegian.
Ruell Solberg, Jr.
