In March 2008, Dale and grandson Pkoe "Conquered" seven southeast states (TN, AR, LA, MS, AL, GA, and WV) in their quest to visit all 50 together. We covered 2600 miles through eleven states in nine days!

On that same trip, we assisted at the Pittsburgh Puppet Festival, where "Flower the Clown" (Brenda Marshall from Texas) was also part of the staff.

In May 2008, Dale visited the country of Albania, where he ministered with Ruth and Sylvain Vergnon and set up a children's ministry resource lending library.

Ken Gardner (One Way Street staff) accompanied Dale and Liz to Trinidad, where we all taught in a puppet ministry training day.

During Christmas vacation 2008, Pkoe, Dale, and Liz enjoyed a Hawaii holiday on Oahu. Pkoe really loved being a "beach bum."

Charles and Juli's two young ones Jenni (4) and Charles Jr. (7) live just a few houses from us, and we enjoy having them visit. They also enjoy raiding Grandma's cookie jar, and Taffy the Duck.

In March 2009, Dale and Liz visited Singapore and Indonesia. In Jakarta, we visited the "ISMILE" preschool. This picture shows Erlina Kwan (former intern and teacher at the school), Violet Goh (three time intern from Singapore), and Supiani Winata (founder of the ISMILE school and sponsor of the Indofest Puppetry Conference) with Liz and Dale.

In Jakarta, Donny and Erlina posed with this puppet, a gift from Ministry Resources International.

Here Dale and Andrew Goh enjoy a reunion and renewal of a long-time friendship in Jakarta. Andrew is principal of the ISMILE school, and is working on a Master's Degree in curriculum.

In October 2007, One Way Street celebrated its 500th Regional Puppetry Festival in Grove City, Ohio. Here Dale poses with the official cake.

In October 2007, Dale (center) participated in a Children's Ministry Conference in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Doug Nearpass (left) and Paul Morley (right) also were on the teaching staff.

Dale found no shortage of camels in Dubai. He got to ride on one, and saw camels and camel souvenirs everywhere!

At the Japan Ventriloquist Association Conference in November, Takeshi Ikeda (left) served as conference organizer, nd Judy Buch (center with her puppet friend) and Liz got together for a photo.

Taffy Duck and Liz got acquiainted with the famous "Lamb Chop" and ventriloquist Malloru Lewis, daughter of the late Shari Lewis at the Tokyo JVA Conference.

Dale travelled to Reading, England to help Harry Barrett (right) celebrate the 15th anniversary of the One Way UK European puppetry festivals. Harry presented Dale with a very nice crystal trophy in appreciation for his leadership and friendship.

Liz loves dramatizing God's truth with her favorite vent partner Taffy the Duck. Here you see her as a roving reporter interviewing Taffy about the recent rainstorms in the area.

Dale and Liz directed a monthly hour long KIDS program featuring puppets, clowns, costume characters, music, and ventriloquism for 10 years in Denver, Colorado.

Here they celebrate the 50th program of Kids In Denver Saturday!

Camel Jockey Dale enjoys meeting several camels up close. These camels were on a camel farm in Missouri, which Dale and Liz discovered while traveling to one of One Way Street's Summer Fests held in Springfield, MO.

Dale got his first experience with camels when he took a camel ride in Israel on our first trip there to share Jesus through puppets. That ministry trip included the use of a camel puppet Dale called Mr. Camel. This began Dale's affection for camels, which resulted in his fairly large camel collection today.

Big camels, small camels-Dale loves them all. This one appeared at a puppet festival in Canada.

Dale used this custom-designed camel by Dave Privett for an unusual graduation baccalaureate address he was asked to give at his former high school in Iowa.

Dale is a fan of the Colorado Rockies baseball team most years. Even if they aren't in the top standings, he always enjoys going to the ballpark for a game.

Dale grew up in rural Iowa where the delicious morel mushrooms are found and fried every spring.

Liz is passing her love for ventriloquism on to her two grandsons, Pkoe and Charles Jr. Both Liz and Pkoe performed vent for Liz's mother's 85th birthday. Young Charles Jr. wanted to get into the act too, so he joined them in singing Happy Birthday with his little duck and stuffed dog.

Dale and Liz wrote and directed many creative children's church units. The very first one was called Super Book Olympics. Here you see the two as referees for this fun-filled game of learning scripture facts and verses.

Dale and Liz have hosted many college-age interns in Colorado. Here are the two of them at the top of Old Man Mountain, the place they have challenged these interns to mountain climb with them until they reached the top.

Liz was honored as Ventriloquist of the Year by a vote of her ventriloquist peers at an international Ventriloquist ConVention in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky. Meet Zeke and Taffy, who made this honor possible.
