Hello, Professor. I reviewed your Profile and photos of a handsome lad - way back then and even more recently. Those recent ones surely, to my eyes, display a physiognomy of a learned and polished professional - could easily pass for a surgeon or ... oh yeah, a college professor.
I see you had your one child at about 42 years of age. May I ask ... did you marry a younger lady. Any grandchild to boast about? Kathleen and I had our two between 30 and 32 years of age (us, not the kids when they were born) and our daughter just delivered, at age 43!, our second grandson. Keeping up with Leo and, during the coming next several years, newly-arrived Seth will continue to tax our enfeebled strengths and endurances.
I'd like to make it out to the Commonwealth - to see my niece in a Pittsburgh suburb and to visit with you a bit. I remember you fondly from high school and sincerely hope your birthday and the coming year are filled with good health and enriching memories.
- Bob H.

Hello, Professor. I reviewed your Profile and photos of a handsome lad - way back then and even more recently. Those recent ones surely, to my eyes, display a physiognomy of a learned and polished professional - one who could easily pass for a surgeon and ... yes, a "man of letters." Retired? Where did you teach, Bill?
I see you had your one child at about age 42. May I ask ... did you marry a younger lady. Any grandchild to boast about?

I'd like to make it out to the Commonwealth sometime - to see my niece in Moon Township and to visit with you a bit. I remember you fondly from high school and sincerely hope your birthday and the coming year are filled with good health and enriching memories. Send us some news, if you care to, o.k.?
Your friend,

Hello, fellow subscribers.
I don't know if any of you have recently experienced any issues with the functioning of our class website. I received this notice from ClassCreator - the parent company managing all class sites: "Class Creator is live after an extended down time. An unplanned connectivity issue occurred at our current Data Center. "
(The unfortunate fact is that I've used - to no avail - the "unplanned connectivity issue" many times with Kathleen to explain instances of my curious behavior, flagging memory and inattention to her questions.)

Hold the phone! I don't follow Sonoma County new, but just saw a scroll on a major news station about the ""Swamp Fire' in the Santa Rosa area. said 17 structures were burned. Who knows more on this and if any classmates there are affected? Thanks!

Another year .. shot to hell, eh,Tom? Your Profile says you are/have been a "Musician/Graphic Artist/Radio Thespian" All true and admirable. Behind your enviable array of skills and endeavors, with a few side roads to address survival expediences, lies a man whose humor, soft heart, loyalty and quirky personality I've grown to love and treasure over 58 years. I'm giving you a virtual hug from the "islands", while regretting that I cannot interact with you in person and gift myself with some precious moments of delicious mirth, sprinkled - as those have always been for me - with gems of deep thought and insights.
Stay well and slightly, uniquely weird!
- Bob

Hello, Ron. I send sincere birthday anniversary wishes to you on your 73rd go-around (beginning sometime today #74.) I'be enjoyed your sharing of photos from old time Hollywood and Burbank and near-by locales. Lots of fascinating history, venues and architecture dealing with old Los Angeles back in the 30's through the late 50's, portrayed in delicious film noire pieces I've found so enthralling and entertaining - Chinatown, L.A Confidential, Sunset Boulevard, The Long Goodbye, Devil in a Blue Dress and the unsettling Mulholland Drive. It appears your interests have also been captured by those times.
Best wishes and stay well and interested in life, Ron.

Hello, all. As this website's Administrator and pursuant to a request from Sylvie Moore, the Reunion Committee president, I posted earlier today an important and updated Announcement concerning our 55th Reunion. You can read it on the Home Page by selecting that tab at the upper left of the screen. Please do look at it. Thanks!

For those classmates on this website who are following the national news on Covid-19's progression, key words/concepts jumps out, among them "respiratory distress" and "ventilators." I wager that for our friend and frequent contributor Mike Lindsay, a retired Respiratory Therapy specialist, these times must hold especially poignant reminders of how fragile we humans are when the seemingly simple act of breathing, enabled by the quite complex process of oxygen exchange in the lungs, that gets compromised.
Mike ... you have always been gracious and humble and said little about your career contributions. Any thoughts about those in your professions who are hunkered down, during these dire days, (metaphorically) in the forward foxholes and bunkers on Normandy Beach starting June 6th, 1944? This reminds us all, as if we needed reminding, that healthcare professionals, virtually to a person, answer to a higher calling and concern for their fellow humans in distress and often go the "extra mile" while tired and discouraged, and put themselves at risk to perform their so-valuable services. My dad was one of those souls and I have no doubt that Mike was also.

Happy birthday, Sandy (A day late ... started this message yesterday, then got sidetracked.). Remember when, a long time ago, we used to bump into each other at G&G? (no concerns about social distancing then.) I miss those impromptu meetings. Little chance of that, now that I am 2,200 miles southwest of you. Take care, friend.

To: Terrance Johnson. I extend a very sincere Happy Birthday wish for you today, sir. I hope this year is kind to you and family.
I looks increasingly as if I will not be joining you and Tim Grey for a confab any time soon. I'm "on the fence" about even flying from Kona to PDX early next month,as planned. And, if I do, will I contract the Covid-19 and have to self quarantine, or return in June for our daughter's second delivery and risk bringing the virus into our and their households? Real concerns during these chaotic and trying days.
Be well, my friend.

Welcome, welcome ... and welcome, Kathleen! It warms my heart, as the website Administrator, to have a new member/subscriber on our Class of 1965 forum. It's been close to a year since our last member joined, and we have only about 29% of our original class as members.
Thank you for sharing your very interesting and impressive "story" of career accomplishments. Welcome to retirement ... which, based on your history, will be anything but boring and stodgy. I trust you will find some former classmates with whom you'll connect and interact.
We fellow classmates will LOVE to see any photos of you and any family you care to share. And if you ever have a question about, or issue using, this website, please reach out ot me.
Finally, please see the announcement on the home page about our 55th Class Reunion - being held on July 18th, at the Wild Oak Club out in Rincon Valley. A drive from Reno is surely "do-able", right?

Greetings, George. I enjoyed our brief visit over the 50th Reunion weekend, and particularly at the more personal Sunday picnic. I hope you've been well.
I'm intrigued by the updating info noting you are now a "part-time Porsche driver" Please tell me (and your fellow classmates) more about this. Maybe you have an fractional interest in a Porsche and get to drive it only part of the time? Maybe you've joined the Senior racing circuit?
My best to you and your big, happy family.
