How do we put 50 years into 16 lines of info.
Elaine and I have had a chance to make to wonderful trips over the years. In 2002, our youngest daughter was stationed in Germany. We were able to spend three weeks there. We also worked in a week-end trip to Paris and 4 days in Ireland. - In May of 2013, we made a cross country trip. Went to Chicago, Detroit, Shipshewna, Indiana (an Amish communitee), Louisville, Nashville, Memphis, Oklahoma City. Oklahoma city was our main destination, for our oldest granddaughter's high school graduation. I forgot to mention that the graduation was postponed by the tornado in Newcastle and Moore. The tornado formed up about 2 miles from my daughter's, skirted their house and first touched down about 3 miles east of their house. We were due to leave the next day, but decided to stay and we worked in the Newcastle Tornado Shelter. - But it went from disaster to an out pouring of help. People started calling, what do you need, how can we help. I took a call from South Caroline, saying we are send to semi's full of chicken and six crews to cook it for you. - After we got home, people asked why can't we help each other every day. My answer to that is, "we are all working to take care of our own daily problems and then someone in the country has bigger problems. We all pitch in to help the ones with the bigger problem, then we they are taken care of we all go back to our daily problems. - Oh yes, the graduation was re-scheduled and we were able to see our granddaughter's graduation. -By the way, we drove 6750 miles in four weeks.

Hi Mike: Welcome to the "senior boomers". I think anyone born in 1946 should be called the senior boomers, since the end of the "Baby Boomers" came as we were graduating from school. Happy 70th Birthday. It only hunts the first few times that you say if. Happy Birthday, Gary

Hi Janice, I waited to see if I still remembered you and all of my friends after I turned the big "70". Well I remembered what I was supposed to be doing, so I guess I am OK with 70. Hope all is well with you. Happy Big 70 to you. Gary

Gary Lee Hicks has left an In Memory comment for Garry Wallace Martin.

I grew up just a couple of blocks from Garry.  I remember early on, he had a TV Guide route.  I think he made about $.15 per issue.  I also remember first day of 7th grade PE and Gene Lister was get our names.  The problem was there was a second Garry Martin.  Lister was OK with that, he decided to ask the number of Rs in their first name, Oppps, both were two Rs.  So next Lister wanted to use middle initial, both were W.  Now Lister is getting a little upset, so he went to the full middle name, don't remember the other Garry's name, but Wallace got Garry ahead in the line.   I remember a lot of snickering, but Lister held it together.  I also remember Gary have a shell of a model T roadster, but at our age it was a beauty.  R.I.P.  Garry.

Hello Uhuru: Good to see that you are doing well. I still drive thru the old neighborhood and have many times wondered where you were and what you are doing. I hope that we are leaving the world a better place for our future generations. Sometimes I wonder if we are getting better or worse. I guess we will have to leave that to the historians. Sorry you weren't able make the reunion, it was a blast.

Hi Mike: A late happy birthday to you. How are you doing since you turned ......wait we can't be that old, can we? Was thinking about you yesterday, found a box of old class pictures. Now here is something for all of the Libby grads - "WHO REMEMBERS THAT WE HAD A CLASS FLOWER AND CLASS COLOR? A BETTER QUESTION WOULD BE WHAT WERE THEY? Stay tuned because I am sure that Mike will know the answer. Happy summer to everyone. Gary
