Your general comments are welcome:

Same as always, designing and building weapons, rockets, engines, blowing stuff up, but for money. Been here at the Naval Air Warfare Center in the Mojave Desert since 1968 after an engineering degree at U. of Arizona. Actually, retired since 1997, and kind of like it here now; besides, every time I look at all the stuff I'd have to sort thru to move, I shelve any thought of moving. Married twice to good women who gave me three great kids. Now I'm single again, but stay tuned. I'm grateful to be in pretty good shape for my age and considering my line of work and the mileage I've put on motorcycles. I hike a lot in the mountains and canyons, take some pictures, travel when I can, and plan on seeing a lot more of the world before I leave.
Thanks to Mike and Linda Brown, Chuck, and now Dave Miller (etc.) for all the time and effort it is taking to get all the cats back into the house at one time for reunions. Look forward to seeing all at the 50th and beyond.

School Story:

I can't tell the best ones, or someone would have to shoot me.
Does anyone else remember exploring the storm sewers beneath the streets of Vandalia in about 1952?
How about collecting clay pidgeons out beyond the traps at the ATA at night? And getting caught?
Watching the guys with scooters do wheelies after school at the old high school (Morton)?
How many thousands of laps were run around Morton by the track team before we moved to the new high school (where we ran around the halls after school until it warmed up enough to go outside)?
Is there anyone in our class who can forget the stupendous 10-0 football seasons, two years in a row, when we were juniors and seniors?
