Credit for this should be given to Holly and Dan Dailey, who worked tirelessly in Minneapolis on this project between 1980 and 2005:
Step 1: Make time for reading with your children.
Step 2: Create an environment for reading.
a) Read aloud to kids everyday,
b) Discuss stories, events, and the world around them,
c) Encourage children to learn letters and words,
d) Take children to libraries and bookstores, and
e) Encourage reading and writing as free-time activities.
Step 3: Read good books and talk about them

Dear Family and Friends,
Authentic issues of “Wandervogel Diary,” passed into the afterlife with Dan L. Dailey
in November, 2016.
Being his younger brother of five and a half years, I arrived at Estrella Vista
– originally named the Wandervogelhaus –
on December 11, 2016.
That date is between the birthdays of Dan and David’s only blood-sister, Mary Christine Dailey Schultz Neumann [12-10-1949], and “baby brother” David Arthur Francis Niklas Dailey [12-12-1953].
So in the spirit which is part tradition, genetics, respect, and forward searching,
I am asking diary readers to respond with their best efforts to keep the vision,
mission, goals, and projects of The Redemption Project moving into the right direction.
What Dan L. attempted was never a one-man-job.
He will remain the “face” of the movement and one main source
of inspiration for all of us and many more “movers and shakers” to come. I praise Dan’s assignment of Lone Heron to administer The Redemption Project, which I know I could not be successful leading.
Although I am a writer with great interests in justice, politics, and human development, my focus has been with sports, political satire, public health and safety, and comedy – all kinds of humor, including stand-up entertainment.
I think humor has its place. In The Redemption Project, it needs to be applied carefully,
timely, in the proper situation, among a suitable audience, etc., etc., etc.
Your support of Lone Heron, Dan’s son Henry, and many others working on the project
will be appreciated very much.
Where ever I may be writing my funny stuff,
I will be praying, hoping, and thinking about your future successes.
All the best,
Founder of “The Dailey Sun-Chronicles”

I was just telling my new best friend about how PROUD we should genuinely be about our children, even the adopted ones and wicked-behaving step-kids.
Today, being Ash Wednesday – following Stove Tuesday, popularly known as “Marti Gras” – I told this man how PROUD I am about my daughter’s trip to New Orleans – “Nawlins” – during the pre-Lenten season.
I remain proud that MY daughter scored the most plentiful and colorful set of beads that I have ever seen one person collect… and I have been following Marti Graz Parades in Nawlins for five decades.
Yes, I am a proud father.
I trust you too love your sons and daughters almost as much I love mine.
