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!

Hello Jim. Another birthday wish from me, a former classmate and teammate. I read your story every year and laugh out loud! Glad I never went to Alaska or to Boeing for that matter. I too did the education thing and retired after 40 wonderful years helping kids. Always seeing you and getting a good laugh. Summer golf begins soon...at least getting in to shape for it does. Hope to see you in June, July AND August. Happy birthday---MIke.

Happy birthday Steve. I like your website photo. You look a little gray! That's what you get when you spend most of your time on the water fishing or reparing your nets! Better get back to AZ with Larry. 5 months away from our annual reunion golf outings. Hope you are doing well. Enjoy your day my friend.---MIke

Hi Terry. Happy birthday to you. Hope this corrected address works? Chelan sounds wonderful during the holiday season. If you get bored you could always drive back to Renton and celebrate with some of your classmates on the 12th at Maplewood. A little holiday happy hour. Enjoy. —-Mike

Good morning Doug. Happy birthday to you. It will be wet and rainy here in the northwest. Hope you factored that in to your celebration plans. Arizona? So Cal?
