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!

Hi Renee. Sorry I missed your birthday. Hope you had something fun planned? Still have the '59? Wish I could find my '58. We could go cruise somewhere...not Renton! Hope to see you this summer at a reunion event. Happy birthday.---Mike

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

Happy birthday Gabby! Loved the Hanus referral. I’m guessing it was a basketball thing but she liked me and let me leave anytime to do stuff. Most of the time it Fire Patrol duties haha. Hope you have a fun day planned. Come home this summer and join up with us at a golf event. Have fun—-Mike
