School Story:

When there was a large amount of rain, I recall taking a Water Ski and removing the back fin and water skying on the lawn between the Napa High Campus and the Old College Campus. We were pulled by a car with rope attached to the bumper with the car running up and down what was then the parking lot.

Recall cutting class at noon, getting several Six packs of Beer and meeting up with Bill Hoffman at his parents home. drank the beer and went Skinny Dipping.

Bill Hoffman, I and others attempted to make beer, we did! We did not let the yeast die and drank the beer regardless. Those who had weak stomachs or Intestines discovered one does not drink beer that has live yeast acting in it. One can and does suffer from having the trots!

Favorite Songs

Santana... Black Magic Woman, and just recently changed to Garth Brooks...Sueeeze Me...Country Western

You & I were to stop having further birthdays, but if we were to stop having our birthdays, we would no longer exist! Not a good choice for us to make. Meryll I hope you had a good & happy Christmas and lets add to this, having the best birthday that you will ever know.

Susan P. Boone is not the only one who fought off the Cold, I've also fought off the worst soar Throat I've had since 1970, my 2nd year in attending Napa Valley College. It took me a while to recover from this Cold! Meryll, I will look to seeing you when I our times are convenient. I left & arrived here in Kansas City, MO for Christmas and also to see 2015 leave and to see 2016 enter! See you then! "GM"

Glad to have found you, you were burried in my computer files, my fault. I hope that you are doing well. I missed our last Reunion meeting at Paul Durbins because I took on caring for a Husky Pup, only to discover that raising a pup to be an adult dog meant giving more time and care than I had tought. I sold the Husky Pup for the same price that I paid for her plus the amount of Vet Medical Bills, getting the shots the animal needs to stay safe and healthy. YES, the Siberian Husky was cute as a bugs ear, I had an offer that I could not refuse decideing to part with the animal. She slept in a kennel at the foot of my bed, so that when she needed to go out to go potty I was right there. I never heard an dog cry and howl as she had. So I am lonely once again, I will find some animal a dog or similar to be companion here at the house with me. I am the last of my family. My parents and my sister have all died, therefore I am the last left living. I'll survive, I have for this long and will live longer I know. Take care and will look forward to hearing from you.
