In the mid-1970s my father, Deane Gunderson, wrote several articles which he titled “Bubbles in the Wine.”  Fortunately for my family, and anyone else interested in reading them, one of my sisters, Marti Gunderson Carlson, typed up the articles and compiled them in a book.  The intro to the book states the following:

“Bubbles in the Wine” is the title of the column written by Deane C. Gunderson between February 27, 1975, and May 26, 1977, for the Rolfe Arrow, published then in Rolfe, Iowa.

My father and me (Louise) on November 15, 1975.  I purposely did not crop closely in case anyone wanted to "relive" a visual of Rolfe's Presbyterian Church.  The last service held in this church was its Commemorative Sunday, April 30, 1995.  (Click photo to enlarge.)

My father and me (Louise) on November 15, 1975, the same year Daddy began his "Bubbles In The Wine" column. The last service held here in Rolfe's (Iowa) Presbyterian Church was its Commemorative Sunday service, April 30, 1995. Soon thereafter this church was razed, I believe in 1996.

Mr. Gunderson’s topics, about matters of personal interest, are many and varied.  The themes reflect his involvement in farming, education, sports, Iowa State University, politics, etc.  The spectrum includes historical accounts as well as current events.  Some of the subjects are as topical today as when they were first published.

He occasionally invited guest columnists to provide their perspective into a particular area in which they were knowledgeable.

This compilation brings information, insight, history, and wit, to the reader.  To one who knows the author and the community serviced by the publication, this gathering of words brings enjoyment.



Periodically I’ll post Daddy’s “Bubbles In the Wine” articles about everything from…A to Zeman.
