Yes! Attending Reunion

I worked for General Motors, Fremont, for 15 years. When I returned from the Air Force in 1970, I was laid off, so went skiing for six months. I was the head bartender at the main lodge at Park City, Utah.
When I came home, I was rehired at GM. I had to give up skiing, golf and tennis in 2005, when I had a nasty fracture of my ankle. (I still have seven screws in it).
I only rarely play my French horn nowadays. I also gave up my singing in the choir - solos even - but may go back.

School Story:

University of the Pacific, Stockton, Spring 1966, Psychology
I enjoyed intramural sports and played on the Tennis team. We played SF State
one year, and I was matched against Damon Cropsey, my doubles partner at Tech - we had won the OAL All City Doubles title in 1959 - and he beat me, darnit!

Steve was my pal in Jr. high and High school. We were in several clubs together including Hi-Y and the Block T.

Steve and I were Christians, both of us having accepted the Lord as Savior at Mt. Hermon Church Camp before our Junior year. He was a regular attender at the United Presbyterian Church on College Avenue in North Oakland. We also got in trouble together. One night we we were able to get a fellow to buy some beer for us, at the Alcatel, and we parked near Chabot school to drink it. We did not have a bottle opener, which was required in those days, so were trying to pry off the caps with the door hardware.

That's where the police got us. We were both 17.  They took me home first to a rather unpleasant encounter with my father, then they took Steve home, where he and his father laughed and shared a few brews.

I loved Steve. He was my brother.
