|The past 40 years have been
bearable. The hair is a little grayer and quite a bit thinner but I've added a
couple of pounds to make up for that. It seems the years and gravity have
repositioned my previously well-defined physical features. On the brighter
side... I can still chew my own food!
Where I've been...
I left MHS and went into the world to make my fortune. I
graduated in '70 from Viola Tech in Forest Sciences and spent 1971 - 1972 in
the polar regions studying pine tree pollination and butterfly migration. Below
is a picture of me on station near "the pole". Where I'm going...
In late '72, when I got
back "state-side", I found a position with Coyote Foods as a cookie taster and
am almost ready to retire.
Buff, our little bundle of joy, is now in
College. He's working on his Masters in Business and is planning on a career as
a Financial Planner.. sure hope he paid attention in his classes! Below is a
little family portrait taken back in 1974. Buff was just a cub then.
enjoy relaxing on our 12' yacht and fishing across the great Northwest. I'd
like to say I was the "BIG fisherman" but DeYaWana seems to have a real way
with a rod and reel.
Some years back, we were burglarized by an
uninvited house guest. Our nanny-cam captured her picture and she was in
custody in a matter of hours.
Cutbacks on the job have me looking forward to
retirement. Too much work for an old Bear... We will be spending more time
traveling and spoiling grand-kids!We're really looking forward to
the 40th Reunion!!!
