School Story:

I always thought it fun to try and avoid ( run around) Kermit Ambros during Cross Country practice. He never knew if we were practicing or loafing. The proof came at an actual meet.
I enjoyed Art Del Verio's (sp?) history. Being a WW II vet we really lived that 1940's segment of history with no text book needed.
I can't recall the name of the frizzy haired English teacher who spent every waking minute checking people for hall passes or shouting out the minutes until class started. How she ever found time to teach is beyond me.
Teachers I appreciated- Ms Arner, Mr Kish, MrTarrent, Mr Bagg, Mr Montel


Living the good life in Walnut Creek CA. Enjoying my grandsons, fishing, golf, wood work, welding, ceramics, yard work and hikes with my wife and yellow Lab Quinn

Another year in the bucket! 2020 was not what I’d call a ‘prize’ year, so optimistically looking forward to 2021!!! Hope your B’Day is filled with smiles and maybe (?) a slice of cake.
