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 David. Happy Birthday to you! Pretty ugly weather today but hope you can get out and do something fun. Golfing weather is long gone but we still meet and go to a hoop game or two. Care to join us? ---Mike

Good morning Doug. Happy birthday to you. Just scrolled through previous well wishes on this site and came across some of names you and I called classmates at St. Paul's. Great memories. Enjoyed swapping stories with you at the 50th and wish we could get together more often. Have a fun day planned? Hope you and the family are well. ---MIke

Happy Birthday Gayle. Hope things are going well for you up north? Miss seeing you and wish you could come back home for some summer fun with the gang. We met as a group five times last summer and hope for more next summer. Talking with you at Coach Liefer's memorial was fun but not the best situation. Enjoy your day.---Mike

Good morning Stan. I was out of the area and missed your birthday. Sorry, that I not like me. Hope you had a fun day planned. I appreciate the effort you make to attend almost all of our '67 outings. Getting Jean there too! As the ugly weather months are now upon us I hope we can find reason to get together. RHS hoop game? Happy birthday Stan.---Mike

Good morning Claudia. Wanted to be the first or close to the first to wish you a happy birthday. You have been a dear friend for years...ever since we sat next to each other in Mr. Hicklin's sophomore year Biology class. I was more interested in you than his lectures! Been fun swapping Italian jokes for years but I really have enjoyed eating your Italian food. If there is anything left over from the birthday dinner please let me know. I only live minutes away. Happy birthday Paisan!---Mike

Hi Kathy. Happy Birthday. Another year has gone by with no Ms. Kassy! Two years now. Get the picture? Next year mid-August OK? Actually this year we had a June warmup and a July warmup to the post reunion reunion in August. Did you follow that? Then we met again in September for an end of the summer golf outing and happy hour up at the Apogee. Hope you had a great day. Can we see you in the summer?---Mike

Happy Birthday Ron. Saw Jim Tugwell at our last reunion golf/happy hour gathering and that made me think of our Skyway Little League experience. We've known each other for many years Mr. Lee. I enjoy seeing you and remembering a very fond time of my life. Now...retire so we can do more of the reunion stuff! Hope you have fun day planned.---Mike

Hi Karl. Happy Labor Day and Happy Birthday too. Wonder how many times over the years this has happened? I'm sure your Mom heard all the Labor Day jokes involving your birth! Wish we all could see more of you. We golf now four times a summer together as a class. Well, 15-30 of us anyway. If interested, send me your email address and I will add you to the RHS group.---Mike
