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 Tugger. Happy birthday. This year has been a little different for all of us. Awkward to say the least. Glad you were able to join us at Maplewood though. Stay safe and enjoy your day.---MIke

Hi Darrel. Happy birthday! Hope you had a peaceful holiday. Are you still planning on moving East and leaving the Evergreen State? That would be a mistake! Hope to see you at our holiday food drive in December.

Hi Bill. Happy birthday. Think of you often as we travel to Boise to see the grandkids. Hope you and the family are doing well? Our RHS class still gathers each August at Maplewood Golf course for a little fun and frivolity. Wish we could see you at on of these events. No need to be a golfer. In fact there are as many non-golfers now who come afterwards for the social. Hopefully we can gather this year socially?---MIke

Not sure where the hair comment came from? I have not had a haircut in three months. Getting close to my college Viet Nam Protest length! Hope the quarantine ends soon. —-Mike
