George, Jennifer and Kye 2010
Dear Alexis, 11/25/02
The Elder-Groebe's are doing GREAT! I just fed Tommy, Will, George, and Elizabeth a BIG turkey A WEEK EARLY, because I'm going to be in Chicago on Thanksgiving. George's girlfriend Jenny joined us. Tom is at a new Special Effects company, doing what he did at Industrial Light & Magic at better pay and better job conditions. He is helping put together the movie Matrix Reloaded. Willie just completed LORD of The Rings Playstation 2 video game. It's at the stores for Christmas. He managed a team of artists and animated many of the heros and villains. George is working hard as final test manager for an electronics manufacturer. He has to send many products back to the drawing boards when he detects flaws in the design or operation. He and I are in a GET IN SHAPE blood-commitment to encourage each other to get a regular workout and pump iron and run daily. We ate a lot of pizza and beer and ice cream to SEAL the blood-commitment to getting in shape. Elizabeth and I went hiking four miles on the mountain last Sunday. She insists that we hang out together MORE. So Thursday we partied and KERIOKE'd with Willie and Tom to celebrate Will's project and job ending. I've had a wonderful breakthrough with my ex-wife Martha. All is forgiven, she and her new husband Rob and I are able to hang-out and enjoy life with the kids and my GRANDSON KODO without any pain in my heart anymore. Kodo and his mom Podge are fun and happy. I'll send more news later. LOVE BROTHER GORDON ! ! ! p.s. I love you AlexisDear Alexis,
My people out here in
California are doing very well. I am a little exhausted from several tough
months of budgeting, year end accounting closings, and year end auditors.
But I just got a "good" job appraisal from my boss.
My daughter Elizabeth appears to be staying in Marin till at least June 2002.
Wonderful. She is SO sweet and fun, and she loves me!
Georgie is in San Jose, his high tech firm is having salary reductions, I think,
but it looks like they will pull thru the tight economy, they compete with
Hewlett Packard. Willie is dancing. He
performed last weekend in a beautiful, romantic duet with a pretty girl.
And he'll perform again a different role late this month. He loves to
dance, and a friend has hooked him up with a couple dance companies who need
help from time to time. Willie also is doing
well at work, moving up to leader of a team of artists and animators on a LORD
OF THE RINGS type video game. He loves it, he is passionate about hobbits
and dragons and such!!! Tommy is in CHICAGO
RIGHT AT THIS MINUTE!! He may try to get hold of a Groebe or two before he
returns Sunday morning. Look for a call, and clear the decks if you can
break away to see him. He's staying in Evanston with uncle George Elder,
who has a job opening in his Advertising Agency that Tommy is looking at.
I am working on a relationship with my girlfriend. I love her.
She isn't as sure about it as I am right now
