Comments:

A year after graduation I did a 2 year stint in the Marines, never left southern California. Then there was a brief but tortuous marriage, followed by blessed peace. However this year was my 5th anniversary to Sherrie, a Jefferson county girl 11 years my junior (when we met I was 32 and she was 21), we were married on the 20th anniversary of the day we met. Now that's courtin'. Moved from Florissant to Hillsboro in '96, and don't regret it except the long drives to play softball. Since my 50th I've been playing several nites a week plus traveling to Florida, Tennessee, and a lot of other places I've forgotten for tournaments. Several teams have been quite sucessful and it's a great excuse to travel, my number one favorite to-do. If you like islands, my personal favorite is St. John USVI. I still love fast cars, bought a new 2001 Vette Z06 and just turned 11,000 miles on it this week. My trailer queen is a 1969 Torino Cobra SCJ with 29,000 miles. My driver? Since 2000 it's been a 1992 Buick Roadmonster station wagon with a sweet sound system. As a note I still have my Sportster that I bought in 1979, 10,000 miles and holding. For a pet we have a Cocatiel (Willie) that is the cutest thing I have ever known, the first time I truly understood a bond between a pet and a human. We have two atvs and get out several times a year for some fun, mostly at a friends place near Hermann on Hiway 94. Got hired at Flo Valley Community College July, 1980 and put in 16 years there, then transfered to Meramec in 96 when we moved south, 29 blurred years and counting. Come on retirement. My favorite saying....."Ya gotta grow old but ya don't gotta grow up". Have Fun!

School Story:

With 4 weeks until graduation this dumbass gets caught smoking in the boys room. 2 week suspension.
Fox rode me weekly to get my hair cut. After the marines my hair has been on my neck and further since.
Graduated at the bottom of our class but at least I made it!
Levine and I were sneaking into club pictures being taken for the yearbook, see me?

Hi Barbie, been a long time since that day at Holiday Hill when Road Runner Rod first laid eyes on you, could tell that day where his future was headed. Glad to hear you can still make him laugh, nicest guy I ever met. Retirement is fun, ain't it? I like the way you phrased your "time" at the prison, good you mentioned it was on the outside. Hope your children got your looks, too. Tell Mr. Barton to shoot me a line on the private message bar, got lots to talk about.......G

Hey Jim, sounds like you don't hear "you need to get out more" too often. Some of us move the country, you move to a different country. Takes a lot of energy and desire to maintain that lifestyle, you seem to have it. Always great to hear old friends are doing well. Hope to see you at the 50th. Stay well
