are some pictures that help define our heritage.
Here is a picture of my Grandfather John Mikeska butchering
a large hog at the farm near Taylor (circa early 1940's)
My Mother (Joy) and Dad, together at my Aunt Val's wedding. Mom and
Dad did the table set up, food and decor. (Circa 1950's)
My father loved to dance..... Here Rudy Sr. is dancing with his niece,
a young Bernadett Mikeska at my Aunt Val's wedding. (Circa mid 1950's)
sorry about the date Bernadett....... Dad really knew how to
This is one of my cherished pictures of my dad and I on Christmas Day
1961. Here he looks like he's the happiest man alive. I now know exactly
how he feels....
trip is confirmed. We will be departing Austin with a stop in Germany
and then on to Eagle Base Tuzla. I have already informed the staff in
Bosnia of the items that they will need to have ready. We are preparing
a "Texas Style" Bar-B-Q for around 1,500 guests celebrating
July 4, 2000. This is going to be very interesting. I will post updates
regarding the planning and progress of our "mission"
Here is another picture of Col. Dale Pyeatt, the Executive Director
of the National Guard Association of Texas. We're standing next to a military
C-130 cargo plane about to depart with Rudy Mikeska's Bar-B-Q on
board. I want you to know what this guy looks like so you can find him
if I don't make it back.
Here is another picture of the Mikeska Cousins at play.......
Nick, Tim, Gerry, Anna, Stephen, and Angela on the slopes at Crested Butte
Colorado. Shortly after this picture was taken, one of us, was
injured and had to be medicated with Jose Quervo tequila. Can you guess
who it was?
