Comments:

I moved to Tucson in January of junior year and was really upset to not graduate with my class. I did have some great music opportunities there, however, and toured most of my senior year with a small singing group. I moved to Portland, OR in 1966 and have been here ever since. In 1966 I joined Southern Pacific RR and worked in the PR department most of my time there. I left there in 1987 to finally attend college for four years. After graduating from Portland State U. I was hired by the county as a case manager for elderly and disabled persons. I loved that job but was glad to retire in 2007. I'm now filling my days with grandchildren, gardening, genealogy, music and social activism. Life is good.

Happy Birthday, Linda. Looks like you're still in Cali. This is my sister's last year of full-time teaching so am hoping to spend a little more time there after that. Meanwhile, let's keep those book stores in business!

Happy Birthday Lynell! This is a big one for most of us. Just remember that saying: "It's not the years in your life but the life in your years!"

Happy Birthday Bonnie! And, Happy Thanksgiving. We're gearing up for about 14 here but it's not too bad. Everyone brings at least one dish and they all help out in the kitchen. It's good having daughters, sisters and a great "foody" neighbor!
