Thanks John for your encouragement and for the information about Judy's climb. Wow Judy, that would be super impressive at any age but at our age - outstanding!

Thanks, John, for your kind words.  The 26,250 climb was awful, fun, awful and more.  A good bunch of 250 fellow climbers helped!

I haven't been mingling here lately But, WoW! I agreed, John, a class of accomplished achievers. Congrats, Judy! That is a significant milestone for our age bracket. I've watched just about every Everest movie and documentary. I just get cold watching and have to don a jacket. LoL.

And Doreen, that is an unforgettable journey, an accomplishment much more significant than ourselves opening the door for many.

The Fish Hole adventure and excursion was a great buzz. Good merry vibes. And Yaela, Thai food sounds delicious, and I'd make a surprise appearance but have a UW dentist appointment to work on my chops. Oh, and Lance wanted to get hold of gals mates, but phone numbers were bad. 

About Doreen's experience and a wee bit of youngblood Doreen and Dale. -

We never forget the kind-hearted souls they leave a lasting impression. Since it is Veteran's day weekend, I ran across Fold3, a historical military records site associated with the Ancestry site.

The link below shows he wanted and belonged to a particularly special group of comrades. Here, we see Larry the way he wanted to be. Vintage footage. Produced by #ClackCo TV, "The Honor and Sacrifice of Larry Dahl." Till We Meet Again, Rest in Peace. Rest in Peace.

Thank You for showing the Viet Nam wall with Walter Henry's name on it. I knew Walter and am proud to have served in Viet Nam as well.

With Christmas coming soon  -  it is a time to be with and remember family. 

Here is a short and fun set of examples from me  -- hope you add to it. 

I have been married 52 years. I have two kids.  A 42 year old daughter who has been a teacher for her entire adult life. I also have a 34 year old son who spent 5 years in the Navy as a medic and 4 years as a police officer before going into selling homes. Beween the two of them I have 5 wounderful Grandkids. My wife and I  have been in the same house for 47 years now, not sure if that means we have been really stable and really crazy. 

Your turn  ----

For those of us not on Facebook


What's your schedule input for getting together (depending on numbers) at a🍽🥤☕️restaurant of size sometime in Mid-to-Late MAY?

YES – NO - MAYBE? This headcount is an early–in–flux interest. I will repost it as we get closer to MAY, as we might not be aware, and our schedules will change over time.

PM me your response.

I might be interested in seeing some folks from back in the day. I agree with John; time,date and location. Although I am more open as I am no longer gainfully employed. Please advise for future...

I will attemd if available. Attended the women's lunch and it was a pleasant trip to engage with people I knew well SO long ago, and also didn't know. A glimpse of how different and the same we are.

Marlene J Souriano (Souriano-Vinikoor)

Depending on the details, I too will consider attending. Seems like a good idea since our last big events were in 2018. Keep us posted, please.

Ric thanks for keeping us connected.  I look forward to getting together with everyone in May.

I would be interested in joining everyone with enough notice.

Oh I am jealous that you all can have these get togethers.  I'm just too far away in New Hampshire to stop by for a lunch.  I'm glad you all do get together although I'm hoping everyone wears name tags with big print!  Amazingly John MacLeod has been helping me virtually with a home renovation challenge.  I hesitate to tell all for he may get others turning to him.  I'm a total dummy when it comes to home repairs and tools, so his help is invaluable.  Here's a (oops - sideways!) photo of me last week with my pup (in dashing raspberry jacket)...

John, speaking of feeling old -- in my 20's  I ran a 2:39 marathon. Now it feels like a marathon to go on a five mile walk !

As John puts it - "Life, only going through once and enjoying the trip................"

Good to hear from you all!

Ric et al, I've been out of commission for a while so I seem to be missing the actual restaurant name for our gathering in May. Please enlighten me.
Thanks, Yaela

Thanks, John and Yaela. ( for the typos: the hang-nail repeats can be cut out, err, deleted at one's convenience)

Backout of the website links? USE THE BROWSER BACK ARROW

The poster says, A walk through Feast Buffet in Renton, WASorry for the background music. They were playing loud music and I tried to drown it out a bit....
