Good to see some new names on our site.  Glad to hear that those in Florida seem to have escaped with minor issues.

Calling all Class of "68 women.  Please let me know either through this forum or by email or text if you'd like to join a lunch or dinner for us.  Email - yaelaettlinger@gmail.com.  Phone for texting - 206 356 1484.  Please don't call me before texting as I don't answer callers whose number I don't recognise.  The guy's lunch place in Renton was kind of expensive - $25 per person so ideas on other venues would be great.  I'm going to try to put a notice on our Facebook page but so far the technology isn't working for me.  Hope to hear from you!

Ooops -  the message about lunch/dinner for the women in our class is from me, Georgina Palmer now Yaela Ettlinger.

Okay, going out on a limb here.  Mr. Hein and I have scheduled a lunch on Wednesday at 11:00 at "The Fishin Hole" in Montesano.  Right at the interchange of Hwy. 8/12 and Hwy 107.  I-5 south to the Hwy 101 exit in Olympia, head for Aberdeen until you get to Montesano.  About a 2 hr drive from Seattle.  I'm sure we can spring for some soda crackers and a pine float.  Men, women, transgenders et al.  Hopefully Phil Anderson will make it also.  We will be the guys with grey/white hair, a few or lot of wrinkles and packing a few extra pounds.  No plans, just lunch.  Yaela load up the Model T with friends.

John M. If you mean Wednesday, October 5th I can't because it is Yom Kippur. Otherwise would have loved to have joined you. If it's a different Wednesday let us all know. I do think the women should have a just ladies lunch though because in our generation women in a mixed group tend to just listen to the men. Isn't that a polite way of putting it, fellow females?

Well. dagnabbit.  !0/5  is Yom Kippur and our lunch get together.  I understand what you mean about a co-ed gathering.   Another time.

Judith E. Payne

I love the idea of having a women's lunch -- John, a co-ed one would be great too but I have a special spot for gathering with women.  Unfortunately I'm way up in NH so can't make it.  I will toast you virtually if you gather.

Looking forward to meeting up with you all at the Fish'in Hole restaurant on Wednesday at 11:00. I'll be the old guy with some grey hair along with some shine. Phil

To Wayne Cofer.  Since you seem to be in contact with Russ Faiferlick, could you get his current information and message it to me?  Last I heard, Russ was in Mexico.  


10/05/22 11:22 AM #1531    

Wayne Cofer

Nancy, 

I do not yet have Russ Faiferlicks new address in FT.Myers.  I sent him a text asking for it. 

I do know he moved from Mexico to Estero, Florida a couple of years ago and then recently 

had the house built in FT. Myers.

Wayne Cofer

Nancy, 

Turns out Russ Faiferlick stayed within the city limits of Estero with the new house he had built ( next to FT.Myers, Florida.)

John Hein

OK all yous '68 Quackers, not to be outdone by a Feast in Renton, there's the Fishing Hole in Monty-Insano.... I mean uh... Montesano. Jeez, what was in that coffee??? Anywise I had the extinct pleasure of brunching with Phil Anderson, Ric Rivera, and the guy yous guys call the other John, Sheriff McLeod of Hoodwink notoriety. Or, am I the 'other'? I can't remember, I'm old.... Hope all's well with all, peace, out...

I don't know about the others, but I had a great time.  Three fast paced hours of what happened to ????? have you seen, I can't believe that, they've been married how many times???? and just a lot of fun catching up.

Mr. Hein referred to the coffee.  My secret is now revealed.  I consume copious quantities of bean squeezings.  Ric comes in a close second.  I think we were cut off at about the 4th or 5th pot. At least we were'nt 86ed for too much laughing.  Look forward to another gathering..

Philip Anderson

I had a great time as well. These guys have incredible memories about things that happened 50+ years ago, it was a fun walk back iin time. As for John M.'s coffee consumption, I didn't know it was possible for anyone to drink that much and never get up! Thanks John H. for making oit happen, seeing the three of you was a real treat for me and I hope we do it again.  Phil

Greetings women of "68! 

We've finalized our lunch plans:

Date: Tuesday, November 15th

Time: 12 Noon

Place: Mali Thai Cuisine, 17310 Southcenter Parkway, Tukwila, 98188.  

Slogan: Be there or be square!

If you saw my posting from earlier today you will have noticed that the restaurant has changed.  I drove down there today and found that the originally posted restaurant was not the one I had enjoyed recently and also had low Department of Health ratings.  Mali Thai Cuisine's health rating is "excellent".  It will be fun to see all of you.

L'shalom, Yaela (Georgina)

Another one for our over accomplishing class of '68.  We have war heroes, world travelers, a governor, numerous authors, fire chiefs, state directors, business owners, transportation specialists, military members, elders, deacons, rabbis, ministers a Knight of Spain and finally a Mt. Everest Challenge participant.  A month or so ago our classmate said they were going to attempt the challenge to climbe 29,029 feet in only 36 hours.  That is only 904 trips up to your second floor each day, for four days in a row.

                    Judy Payne take a bow.  26,250 feet.

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!

11/02/22 04:50 AM #1540    

Judith E. Payne

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

Karen Kummerfeldt

Congratulations Judy.  SO impressive!!  What an awesome accomplishment.

Tick, tick, tick.  The countdown is getting closer for the Franklin women's lunch gathering.  Phad thai, satay and peanut sauce are calling.  Ooh, ooh.  Sounds good.  Mild or hot is an easy choice.

We on the outside looking in, are hoping for photos.

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.
