Comments:

Moved to Oregon in 1975 and here to stay. I was married for 19 years from 1965 to 1982 and have stayed single since. Worked for 18 years for State of Oregon and 10 years for the labor union before retiring in 2002. Worked at Beech Aircraft, Chevrolet Motor Div, Santa Fe Trails & Transportation, Rock Island Oil Co and a couple of other places before moving from Wichita. Lived at Lake Tahoe summer 1966 and worked at Harrah's Club Casino & Theatre as a Personnel Asst in the Slots Dept.
Staying very busy these days learning dance steps for the Shimmy Mob which is May 13, taking computer classes so as not to get too far behind in technology and relearning how to sew on my new upgraded machine. Also this is my 6th year of Medical Qi Gong and sometimes I teach these classes at the dojo which has kept me going during times of health challenges. A key to maintaining health is to keep on movin' and breathin'.

School Story:

I will forever remember those early morning band practices in the football field to prepare for performing the half-time shows. The clarinet keys would freeze as I'm sure other band members had instruments that froze up while we practiced.

I didn't stay in the marching band for the senior year but took office practice and business education and worked afternoons. I remember a representative from a finishing school came to class for 3 days or so and gave us a crash course on etiquette, how to dress properly and hygiene. I recently found the 3-page handout and it is pretty funny. May have to post it.

Happy birthday Juanetta. I hope it will be a good one. Haven't been on the web site in a while. Wish you could have made it to the mini reunion last year.
Hope you and all your family are doing well.

Thanks to everyone who sent me birthday wishes. Haven't been signed in here for a while. FaceBook takes more of mine time than I mean it to. I still stay busy with Medical Qi Gong and beginning this year's Shimmy Mob choreography soon probably having my 12-year old great-granddaughter do it with me. This year is "more difficult" to learn than last (for us old ones anyways). Bought a new car for my b.d. and catching up on technology in it. Hope everyone is surviving the winter there. It can be brutal.

It's Barbara Fletcher Berry's birthday today. New comment added.

Happy upcoming birthday Juanetta. I hope you have enjoyed your summer.

So glad the main Shimmy Mob performance is over. A couple more to go with one of them in Pacific City in July. I've never sweated or washed my hair so much at this age as when practicing for this. Finishing up a class on Everything Google which provides so many options you don't need much other software. Hopefully this is prevention to getting too far behind with technology. I was remembering how some of us went roller skating on weekly ladies' night. It was great exercise and social time plus very inexpensive to just rent your skates or free if you brought your own (which I did).

It's been a long while since seeing any of my high school classmates. Browsing this web site I remember more classmates than I thought I could. During those years I was somewhat backward and not very social. I wasn't able to attend the October 2002 reunion since that was the last month of my employment before retiring and open enrollment for thousands of employees to boot. Couldn't attend again in 2012 as I was recovering from 10 surgeries in 11 months that all started with an emergency appendectomy that was a catalyst to other health problems. I'm much better now and plan to attend the mini reunion this year - Just Friday night at Beech shelter and Saturday night buffet and social. Just bought the airline ticket and have been invited to stay with my sister there. I'll post some photos soon and hope to visit with some of you that remember me.

Betty, happy birthday yesterday. I hope it was an enjoyable one. Perhaps I will see you in June at the mini-reunion.

Hello Jean! Congratulations on your upcoming birthday. I hope you are enjoying your retirement. Retirement is so life changing. Just knowing that you don't have to find a way to work when it snows or the roads are icy and most things you can cancel and reschedule. Remembering when I retired, I wasn't able to sleep past 5:30 for over three years. No problem with that now. Anyways, hope you have plans for an enjoyable birthday.
