Comments:

As Louie DeKryger would say, "Bless my mortarboard!" Here we are, at the Big One. I think this will be the most fun of all. I'm really looking forward to it.

School Story:

Some random thoughts: My h.s. years as being some of the happiest and most rewarding, with few exceptions. One slight one, however. Do any of the girls recall being "allowed" to wear slacks to school, UNDER OUR SKIRTS/DRESSES, (in the dead of winter to keep our legs warm) then being required to remove them when we got to school? Try to explain THAT one to your children and grandchildren!

Other random, useless thoughts:
I loved all my teachers. But a few are in a category all their own, as I'm sure most of you would agree. For me, I placed them as follows:


Most brilliant: Bob Kraai
Nicest: Ethel Adair
Funniest: Virgil Quast
Most uptight: Sylvia Blandford
Most laid-back: Frank Demmon
Most volatile: Jack Fosheim
Most beautiful: Janice Brockway
Best figure: Betty Jacksteit (right, guys?)
Most handsome: Howard Swanson
Best All-around: John DeJong

55 Years of your Life in a Capsule:

After graduating, went to Central Michigan, dropped out, worked awhile, got married, raised 2 boys, spent 2 tours each in Texas and California in the Marine Corps before settling in Washington, D.C. area. Military friends have been some of the best and closest to this day. Went back to school, got my bachelor's degree. I've been down in the valley and up on the mountain top, resulting in a wiser me, and a deeper faith that He controls my life, and it's His plan, not mine. Each day is a blessing, and I'd be remiss if I didn't include my formative years in the best school, and with the best classmates anyone could have.
