Enjoyed art class more than any other. Liked speech class. Had a couple favorite teachers and coaches -coach Goodwin, Bro. Molnar (art), Bro. Fitzsimmon (speech).
Still visit with Jim Rung, and email Mike Otten.
Rode to school on Mondays during football season with members of football Cardinals (Sonny Randall, Bill Kohman, Ken Panfil, Jerry Stovall). Tore kidney as senior at football practice :-) - missed four weeks and healed fast but returned to play last two games.

What's up Mike! Thanks for your Christmas cards, I'm not very good at sending cards other than for family birthdays. Was in St. Louis Thanksgiving and again at Christmas as usual then back to Colorado where we have alternating days of snow and temps in the teens to mid 50s, I am not a fan of cold and snow and much less tolerant as I get older. But getting older beats the the alternative. Hope all's well.

Happy Happy Birthday Dale! An official Okie, huh? I love fishing Grand Lake and had buddies that recently were at Tenkiller and had a great time. I don't miss the tornadoes but love the fishing. Hope you have MANY more birthdays.

Jim was a good high school friend and later roommate for two years. I was fortunate to spend time with Jim and Lee at Lake of the Ozarks in September of this year.
