Reunited with Diane aka “Minnesota Redhead”

By | August 14, 2014

Throwback Thursday: August, 2004. Age 40.

Meet my friend Diane. Diane and I go all the way back to Mr. Alan Olson’s 7th grade math class at Valley Middle School. I always admired her long red hair but was too shy to strike up a conversation with her. A few months later, Diane’s parents bought her a CB radio for Christmas. She became KAHD-6970, the Minnesota Redhead. Now, she was in Drew’s world and therefore approachable. We quickly became good friends and have remained so ever since.

This was taken at Diane’s house in Newport, Minnesota. We’re getting ready to have ourselves a bonfire! It started out as a small gathering and turned into a 3-day party. Good times! Hope to do it again someday soon.

    Drew I admire your photographic memory. I’m glad you found the perfect outlet, writing your book.
    I’m honored of what you wrote about me, keep on trucking! KAHD-6970 signing off.

    Thank YOU for being a great friend these past 47 years! I still remember Wayne telling me “Hey, guess what? Diane got a CB for Christmas! Her dad is going to put up a base antenna this weekend!” I was stoked! 🙂
