I gotta say….some of you were just adorable!

Well, that was your mother
And that was your father
Before you was born dude
When life was great
You are the burden of my generation
I sure do love you
But let’s get that straight

That was Your Mother
Paul Simon

I was going to write a nice little essay this week for y’all — but then in my inbox this morning I found these great pictures from Rich Sherlock, who dug through his relics and sent these scans of class photos from Olivia Park — the missing classes.

I may still get to the essay, but that remains to be seen.   The spirit is willing but the flesh is 51 years old and feeling it tonight.

I did an awful job on identifying names on most of these — feel free to send me any corrections and/or additions.

As always, I welcome any photos you want to send me — however, I may not always be able to turn them around immediately since the coming weeks are going to be busy, travel-wise (I am going to Washington D.C. Feb 28-March 4, Phoenix March 17-18, Washington D.C. again March 31-April 2, and probably to Golden, CO sometime in March as well….and those are just the trips I know about!)

Oh, and we have a couple of new additions to our list this week:  Billie [Alf] Clark and Danny (now Dan) McNutt have joined us — welcome!   And thanks to my goat-herder friend in Stanwood (you know who you are) for doing a little recruitment.   If any of  you know of  others from our class who  might be interested in joining us, please pass this along and invite them to contact me.  So far,  I have (by most accounts) remained, in the words of Douglas Adams, “mostly harmless”
As always with these posts, if you click on the photo, you’ll be taken to my Flickr site, where a larger res version resides.
