The First Birth
About this same time, the duplex that Denvy
and Gail were
building was at the stage of painting and wallpapering. One wall in the
living room with a fireplace rose to a height of about sixteen feet. One
Friday they hung the paper over the fireplace climbing up and down on
the ladder. The next morning baby number three decided to enter the world.
Martha took Darron and Taanya under her wing as Denvy and Gail went to
the hospital awaiting the birth of Marc. After several hours in the hospital,
Marc Dmitri did enter the world. A couple days later, Denvy and Gail attended
church with their growing family.
Moving into the House
On the main floor
was the kitchen and dining room. Off the kitchen was a large pantry. Cabinets
were handmade and inside the cupboards over the built-in oven was hand
carved: Denvy loves Gail. The adjacent half bath was designed so that
anyone who used the room could write on the wall. The living room with
its lofty ceiling had a raised dance floor, a massive stone fireplace
and an alcove wall painted by throwing blown-out eggs with brillant colors
at it. Sometime late in the summer of 1974, the Saxowskys moved into a
nearly finished house.
By the time Denvy and Gail were married
five years on June 21st they had experienced the growth of two more children
and a new house. Hopefully this is not a trend.
Here is an additional picture from the group
with the riverboats on the Yukon. Also the list of persons in the group
should definitely include Gail's sister, Betty's daughter, Kathleen Chase.
