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 Paula. Happy birthday to you on this special day...on a cold one too. Always enjoy seeing at the summer get-togethers. Al and I just met to begin planning this year's version. Hope to see you again. Did you see the class sweatshirt email I sent out? What great site that would be if we all wore one to the summer gathering. Enjoy.---Mike

Hi Lynne. Happy belated birthday. A tad bit busy yesterday but I usually do not forget your special day. Hope you had a fun one? Winter golf? If so that means you have healed from your injury. We'll talk soon. Enjoy.---Mike

Good morning Dean. Happy birthday! How's retired life? Educators can't retire...we simply find another opportunity to teach. I still enjoy it. Hope California's natural disasters have not affected you. Wish you could come home and visit. Our golfing group (and non-golfing group) meet monthly during the summer. Hope to see you sometime. Enjoy your day.--Mike

Hello Linda. Happy birthday to you. Loved the pics. I just transferred in to Renton and started at Dimmitt as a 9th grader. I do remember the cheerleader picture. I came from the Catholic school system and was not sure what cheerleaders did? Loved seeing Scott Fothergill wearing a crossing guard uniform! Hope you have fun today.---Mike

Happy Birthday Ms. Julianne. I enjoy being one of your groupies...I think it began long ago while you were following the Indians and the Gators. You are one of my favs. Thanks for joining us down at Maplewood at our summer golf-related events. Hope you had a good day. Our 2019 events are only months away. Hope to see you soon.---Mike
