    Hal and I still live in Tahoe Donner, a small
community outside Truckee, Ca. just north of Lake
Tahoe.   We've been here since July 1996.  Summertime
we golf 2x/wk.; bike 2x/wk.; kayak 1x/wk. & 2
days/wk., pray for the strength to continue the
following week. Winter we snow-shoe;
crosscountry "skate-ski" & nordic/classic ski & once
or twice downhill ski(alpine). Spring and Fall we
return to Tucson where we play golf with Pete Hand
and Tee Taylor.  And sometimes see Dave Giles biking
on Old Spanish Trail--usually we're heading one way
in the bike lane and Giles the other way.  And it's
always great to see the gals at the monthly "ladies'
luncheons".  Really looking forward to our 50th
reunion--Ray Lindstrom is doing such a wonderful job
of pulling together bios and email addresses--makes
it so easy to communicate.

    Mother passed away Jan. 2007 from pneumonia. For
those of you who knew her and her great sense of
humor--the hospital chaplin came in and asked
her, "Shirley are you ready to meet the Lord?"--to
which my mom answered, "Yes, I'm ready to meet the
Lord--just not today!"  That was my Mom--great lady;
great Mom; great friend.

    BA Communications; worked in Advertising until 1990
retirement.  Loved the business; love retirement more.

May, 2014 UPDATE:

After living in the Lake Tahoe area 14 years, we sold the Tahoe Donner home and moved to Corona del Mar, Ca. in 2010.  We're still biking and cross-country skiing.  Golfing at least twice a week.  All is good.

Had a great time at our 55th reunion.  Always good to see old school friends.
