Greetings and welcome, Shirley, to our class website. As the site Administrator (I inherited it from Paul Quistgard and his able assistant, Linda Sandkulla Hagle) I loosely keep track of new members, and I believe it has been at least two years since a classmate has joined. So ... you live in Windsor. Did you retire from the Santa Rosa HP facility? How long did you work there. My late brother Greg (Class of '66) was an electrical engineer for them, then as i recall, HP downsized and he went over to Agilent and retired from them in about 2004. You might have run into him? He had it "made in the shade" until pancreatic cancer pulled his ticket in 2007.

Anyway, I recall you for high school as a very cordial and attractive young lady and I trust that has not changed. We have only one grandchild 20 months old whereas you are awash in progeny. Large families ... pretty rewarding, isn't it? I'd hope to run into you sometime, but we left Sonoma County last August for Kona, HI where our daughter and family live and are also planning to hang out in the Mt. Hood area east of Portland, where our son lives. You be well and thank you for joining. I think you will find it worthwhile, connecting with old (and I do mean OLD) friends.

Hi Sylvie and a sparkling birthday anniversary to you. You've been a loyal and uplifting friend over these past few years and I've always enjoyed your positive spirit and energy. Among my few regrets about no longer living in the North Bay is not being able to work with you on the 55th Reunion. The event is in very capable hands with you as a part of the planning. I hope we run into each other before one of us leaves this orb. Be well!

Hi and happy birthday, Judith. It's been quite a while since we've corresponded. Although separated since last August by geography (I'm living 2,372 miles southwest of you now in Kona, HI) and some months before that by politics (no comments necessary), I still value your post-H.S.-developed friendship and religious values. I hope your 73rd year on earth (yes ... you've completed 72!) is a winner! Keep us apprised of you adventures, o.k.?
- Bob

To all you "other" geography aficionados: Heard of antipodal cities? I had not, although I have wanted to know what lies diametrically opposite to where I live. So, of course, I Googled it. If you drilled straight through the earth starting at Santa Rosa, CA, you'd come out in the western Indian Ocean, about 800 miles southeast of the southern tip of Madagascar. Given the paucity of land masses in the Southern Hemisphere and the expanses of oceans, most antipodes of Northern Hemisphere cities put you in some ocean. So there you have it ... a tidbit of trivia that doesn't relate to bombings, floods, the overthrow of a South American quasi-dictator or, of course, the incessant chatter relating to our Toddler In Chief. You're welcome.

Hello, Tony. I send you a late-in-the-day (given that it's 7 pm on the West coast) but sincere birthday wish, adding to it my hope that you have a remarkable string of 365 days to follow, starting tomorrow (can't forget Leap Year in 2020, right?) I'd love to bump into you some day ... unlikely now that we live on Big Island, Hawaii. My memories of you are of fun-loving, genuine, true-hearted and attractive girl of 17 and I'm betting those assembled feature have not, in essence, perceptibly changed. Your Profile says you are a pastry chef. Oh, so lucky the man who has connected (or will someday connect) with you. Carlene Frazee may be our readership's special "cannoli" but you can claim the stature of chocolate eclair ... at least in my book. Be well, sweet lady. - Bob

Greetings, Terry, and a sincere birthday wish to you - a truly kind-hearted, classy gentleman. My wife Kathleen has always thought highly of you and thoroughly enjoyed being in your company. May you have many more birthdays and the admiration of people you value. - Bob

Greetings to my good friend and a very joyous birthday wish to you and a hello to the family. Of course, it's still "oatmeal with grandson Leo" time here but the day is half over for those in Our Kansas (Arkansas.) I know you, as patriarch, will be surrounded by an adoring wife, children and some grandchildren ... as it should be ... and Kathleen and I are very happy for you and your new life there. Be well! - Bobby Boy

I'm adding my sincere well wishes to those from Bill and Mike. Kathleen and I hope you have been well and are enjoying retirement ... (you ARE retired, yes?) We have been living in Kona, Big Island since late August so you thankfully are safe from an uninvited "pop-in" by me. I do at at time wish I still lived in our old stomping grounds so I could interact with you and the few other classmates I'd occasionally see around. Please give our best also to Kathy, your lovely bride. The very best to you, sir! - Bob

Greetings, Kathleen! It's my pleasure, as a fellow Aquiri and friend, to acknowledge your birthday today. It's probably not a perfect weather day for celebration (unlike Kona, where it will be 80 degree and sunny, with a light breeze today), but I'm sure that will not dampen your spirits. I hope you and Glen will share some good cheer and memories as you turn another year YOUNG. And I hope the remainder of 2019 is very good to you. - Bob

Hi, Marian. I extend a very sincere "happy birthday" wish to you, a dear and devout person with whom I always enjoy interacting (unless perhaps when it concerns Trump, The Wall, and Republican shenanigans!)

How are things at Rat's Mouth, Florida, Janeen? The last photo I saw of you with two other classmates was obviously a "Photoshop" job as you look to be about 40 years old. Did you actually locate Ponce de Leon's Fountain? Have a grand 71st birthday. We'd always enjoy more photos from any adventures you've taken. - Bob H.

Even if I invoke the "Hawaii Rule" (i.e., operating 3 hours earlier than most of our classmates) I can't top Chip M's birthday sentiments, weighing in at a sleepy 1:33 early this morning. (But, perhaps the Class Creator people run their site on E.S.T.) Regardless, I add my sincere wishes that you and your robust white beard enjoy a Sterling day there in gorgeous Santa Rosa. (I've been suffering through weeks of very warm and muggy weather here in Kona. Me no likey!) Let's hope many of your 8 grandchildren help you celebrate. And, I cannot end without asking you to convey my warm thoughts regarding your still-beautiful spouse. I wish she could participate more in our class website, as she is remembered so fondly by all who have known her for 55+ years. Be well, friend!

Ah-ha! It's already 10:30 on the mainland (7:30 here in sunny, humid Kona) and I've beaten that stalwart early-bird, Mike Lindsay, in extending a birthday wish to a fellow classmate. And such an interesting, fellow classmate she is! Bella ... I am well-aware of your many admirers and feel fortunate to count myself among them. Even thought you're the (sometimes mysterious) "older woman" to most of us, you wear your age with such grace and exuberance ... refusing to let a number dictate your zesty embracing of life's many experiences. Generous and so genuine with your affections but refreshingly "old school: in your sensibilities and relationship decorum, I admire your style and wish i had known you (and your Italian family) back in elementary school. But gratefully, I'm joined with another unique, zesty Italian so there IS a pattern to the universe, and we are all the better that you still populate ours! Be well and let us know of any revelations and reflections that have presented themselves to your life, o.k.? - Bob
