School Story:

Being on a basketball team that won the state championship provided a lifetime of memories, good friends and a career. Terrible student. Thanks to Scott McClellan for getting me through Guillory's senior English class! The interesting twist is that I taught English for four years! Don't worry I got a lot better with diagramming sentences and identifying a dangling participle!

Good morning Mark. Hope you have a fun day planned. Seems like anything planned for a 70 year old will be fun! Happy birthday to a
past little league baseball teammate. —Mike

Good morning Darrel and happy birthday to you. You have an amazing recall trigger! I could sit here and try and try and try to come up with stories from our youth as well as names but cannot unless someone like you hits the "remember when" button. Keep up the good work. I enjoy the read. I also enjoy seeing you at our summer golf outings. Enjoy!---Mike

Guess I won’t be dropping by on my way to Boise. You live in a beautiful area. I coached Community College basketball and have been to North Idaho College many times. Enjoy it Bill.

Happy birthday Mel. 50+ years later still getting “shout outs” to the hoop team. It truly was a school-wide event! Never gets old. Many thanks. Hope you have a fun day planned. —Mike

Good morning Ms. Hippie Mama. Hope you are doing well in the Palouse? Happy birthday to you. Hard for me to say that 70 number so I will just acknowledge it and hope you have a fun-filled day planned. Mine will be coming soon and I believe I will just go to the golf course and forget everything else. Enjoy.---Mike
