Aloha from sunny Hawaii....a voice from the dust so to speak...got to Montana Spring 2021 to see our first grand baby girl....was supposed to go Vegas in Nov but our Governor said cancel travel...what a bummer

Anita loves working from home and home office (SLC) says maybe Jan 2022 back to Laie Shopping Center.

Between the internet, Costco, and the public library....life is good

Wishing you well this coming year, Happy Birthday Barb.

So.....after the 2nd Covid shot we flew to Billings April 23, 2021 to see our first grand baby girl (we started late in life) for 3 weeks. Spring was slow in coming. Then a week in Utah.....to get back into Hawaii was not easy, a lot of hoops to jump through.

Wish us luck as we board a non-stop from SLC to HNL

Kudos for all you do Barb...we continue to shelter in place here in Hawaii. Lucky we redid the interior last Fall (down sized and decluttered). Anita continues to work from the kitchen table and has only been to her DMBA (Laie Shopping Center) office once since March 2020.

Her company is 50 years old today so she hopes to win the “golden ticket” til then, be safe, vote, and may your future be as bright as your faith.

With sadness, my mother of 94 years young passed away Sunday March 1, 2020 at Kaiser Medical Center Oakland CA. My sister Geraldine witnessed her passed in a full body moon suit (virus scare) 50% Hawaiian blood.

Produced a record album called Estherella Sings back in the 60's... now it's on You Tube......track #6 Hawaiian Wedding Song....check it out.

So.......Oct 23, 2019, I turned 69....I refuse to believe it.....though after 49 years of safe driving I had a fender bender last week in Hawaii....

4 weeks ago, visited Utah, Billings Montana (our son's new house, too cold for Anita) then Las Vegas for her medical conference........I did a lucky pull on the $5.00 slots at the Bellagio where we were staying for all of you....but nothing came out. I stamped my feet and shook my head.

Saturday Oct 12, 2019 we got to the Vegas departure Delta gate much to early so we played the Wheel of Fortune slots.....as a Mormon we are told not to gamble.....if I win it's entertainment, if I lose....it's therapy..........I broke even

Anyway, have a great day and a better tomorrow because the best is yet to come.

We were classmates in Beach School (I think he came in 5th grade?), he lived right across from the school so he was never late......tall guy with a little stutter, deep sunked eyes, his sister got a Ford Mustang when they first came out (1964?)....with an Italian background, his mom also worried about him....I can't remember his dad.

After high school he worked in a Government print shop. His mail order bride was from the Phillipines and he came to Hawaii to pick her up, I think he had a daughter.......(7/30/2019) I'll have to wait til I get to the other side and hear the rest of the story and see if my recollections are spot on?

When I saw Scoop's black n' white picture on the slide show at the 50th reunion I remembered his singing and acting in our High School Musical "Guy's and Doll's"

Didn't he have something to do with getting 911 up and running?

So while looking for my old pic of Chris and I , found a few others....
1st one of girls was at Havens. The boys, taken at Eddy’s celebrating our six grade graduation . Not sure of the one of Chip and Rich, looks like junior high school. Maybe Chip remembers?

I remember one time we had a school dance and the computer was to pick the couples.......Anne was so upset that we were matched, she stayed in the bathroom the whole time....yikes.

So we saw Bob Morgan, my brother-in-law, this past weekend at my daughters wedding. He is not able to attend our reunion, so he said we could post these pictures of him . He is still married to Paula and now has 6 grandchildren!

These comments are wonderful to read and reflect on the "old days."

It would be nice to get more and we can read them at the reunion.

Especially nice to hear from those that can't make it and with permission we can share your thoughts  the evening of the reunion.

If you have responded "No" and your plans have changed, it's NOT too late come!!  Just let me know!!

I too was envious of Mark's Chevy Nomad......(I thought it was Red and White), I even rode in it once and I felt like a BMOC (big man on campus) since I ran in different circles....in 1968 we had a broken down silver 1957 2 door Chevy Belair that sat in our open 3 car garage at 1671 Grand Ave.

My fantasy was to have the Chey running and challenge Mark to a race on Warren Freeway (Rt 13) from Montclair to the Mormon Temple.

Frankly, I was shocked of how many of our classmates have passed away.........I thought we were all like Peter Pan, never to grow up..........or we'd all live to 100 and a day (a day to get ready).....

on another note, after attending a funeral in ConcordI I slipped into Piedmont Saturday Sept 1, 2018 and marveled at my old neighborhood....I left in 1972 to Hawaii and never looked back.

Now? No Social Media, my e-mail got hacked and I only have a flip phone.......snail mail to P.O. Box 14, Laie HI 9676 works...

So I circle back around to Mark and say he was very kind to me since I was a social nerd.

See you all on Sept 29.......I look more and more like Woody Allen everyday.

Come over to our 50th reunion on September 29.
