- Enjoy kayaking, working in my garden, reading in
my garden, going to movies, etc. with friends
and going out to dinner or entertaining friends at
my home.
- I still enjoy some traveling but have become
more of a "home body" over the years. Wouldn't
mind going to Greece. I loved Italy but never
made it to Greece.

Charlie, Hunter, Chico and Possum.
- In 2017 I moved to Newport News, VA to share a home with my sister Gail.
Gail, her three sons and four grandchildren are all the family I have left.

Now, at 81, I still love to spend as much time as possible outdoors. Back problems have taken my golfing days away but I still manage to ride my bike and putter around in my garden.

Would love to stay in touch with classmates:

School Story:

One of my high school memories is about Sue Wallace. She loved to chew bubble gum but didn't like to start a new piece. It was "too hard to chew", she said. So she would give me a new piece of bubble gum, have me chew it for a few minutes to soften it, and then give it back to her to chew!

Hi, Dave! I see today's your big day. The big 75? I'll be right behind you in a couple of weeks. I hope the Easter Bunny was good to you this morning and that the rest of your birthday celebration is as great as you are!

Hey, Bob
Just a short note to say "Happy Birthday" and many, many more. Are you digging yourself out of the snow this week? I remember when it used to be "fun", but luckily I got over it . . .
Luv ya,

Hi, Nita!
Long time no see. Not since the class reunion before the last one. When I saw it was your birthday coming up, I was reminded of the fun "sweet sixteen" birthday party you threw for me at your house and the whole gang was there. I still have a picture! Those were fun times . . . I hope you, Bob, and the boys are all well. Have a fantastic birthday! You deserve the best!

Hi, Hank
It's so many years since I've seen or talked with you. I still consider those high school years when we went to football games to watch you, Dave and Ray play. And the parties at your house and mine. Christmas at your house was so special, the way you put candles on the tree and everyone stood around the tree watching them burn and drinking shots of something (?) followed immediately by slices of lemon. Life was so simple then . . . Anyway, hope your birthday is great and that you, Sandi and your children are all well.
Best regards,
