Great trombone player driver of a big engine Mercury convertible. A 5 gallon per mile gas guzzler.

The only person in the class who played a great trumpet and could swim at least four laps underwater in the high school pool.
On November 4th, my wife and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. I have also formerly retired from the practice of anesthesiology. It has been a great run.Have a Merry Christmas to all.

Let me test the memory of the class. John F. Kennedy passed in front of the high school sometime between 59-63 in a red continental convertible. I was standing in the crowd along the sidewalk when his group of cars drove by as the crowd looked on. What was the date?

Now that some of us saw Kennedy that, I would like to propose a research project for those who are interested. How many members of the class are related to the pilgrims?
2. How many are related to the founding fathers? It is the Fourth of July and we should honor them.
3. How many other notable ancestors does the class have ?
It should be interesting.

It appears according to Google that Kennedy was campaigning in Pittsburgh in October 1960.
Syria Mosque, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 10 October 1960 Date(s) of Materials: 10 October 1960 Extent: 5 digital pages Description: This file contains a copy of Senator John F. Kennedy’s speech given at the Syria Mosque in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania during his 1960 presidential campaign.

Guess some of us are just lucky, or very smart and talented. I suspect you belong to the second group, Bill, but really never showed it until after your military days.
Nevertheless, you weren't the greatest "sharer"..how I coveted that go-cart, and only got to drive it ONE TIME! Oh well, because you are so rich these days, perhaps you will send me a car to make up for it! Ha! (Some of us were only schoolteachers, teaching the rest of you how to succeed!!!)
'How did it get so late so soon?"
Wasn't it just yesterday that we were meeting up on the lane and chatting the time away?
I hope you are celebrating your birthday; they count more than ever these days!
Enjoy a happy day, Carol!
My sister and I went to Hilton Head a couple of weeks ago to meet Hal Morgans, his wife, and Jan Teller, who were vacationing there. It was great catching up on old times and hearing news about classmates. Naturally, Hal was in his glory lunching with so many ladies...even some man sitting next to us asked him if that was what retirement was like! Of course, he said it was an everyday occurrence for him! I mentioned another reunion (hey-ya gotta do it when you see Hal), but he rapidly changed the subject!
It was so good to see Jan, also. I think she is finding it difficult to adjust after Dave passing away. Fortunately, she has three daughters who live near her.
Hopefully, they will all come again next year!
