I look back at an enjoyable journey of research collaboration with Elbert A. Walker at New Mexico State University during 1981–2010. These include statistics (change point hazard rate models), decision theory (with belief functions), conditional events (and logics for intelligent systems), control theory (fuzzy and neural), and fuzzy logics.
