How cool! I don't recognize the name but will ask my brother - he worked at Mighty Moss for quite a few years. Bud says it's been quite a few years since there was anyone old enough at Moss to remember our grandfather. Guess that's what happens when you retire in 1960, eh?

Did Ernest go to Alaska, too? Right after retirement, my grandparents moved to Anchorage for a year - my grandfather was hired to supervise the building of an MLPP clone. A couple of days ago I found the address where they lived - going through my grandmother's recipe box & found one written on the back of their tax receipt. I wonder if you still have to pay a city tax to Anchorage for an apartment - $32 +change.
