"PHIL" got left at HHS. I've been MAC since then!

More or less retired after 25 years at Hewlett-Packard - Agilent Technologies (a spinoff of the original part of HP.)

For years, persons who retired would tell me the same old saw, "I don't know how I ever had time to work!" My response was universally "F**K YOU!

And now? I know they were right. Where in the hell does all the time go?

Used to roam the Southern Kalifornia deserts with the family in my 4WD Blazer, but after a broken knee (ask me about that at the reunion) I haven't been back.

I'm seriously into firearms and target shooting. A licensed firearms dealer just for fun & a minor bit of profit.

I've left The People's Socialist Republik of Kalifornia for Greater Phoenix, AZ, "
Where Free men live!"

School Story:

I miss " chasing goats* " with Jerry Curtis, Mark MacPherson, Bill Berg, and occasionally, Dave Missal.

*being intoxicated and driving down alleys knocking over trash cans in JC's mom's Pontiac?

Rodney: Another awesome reunion. They just get better and better.

I had horrible ragweed allergy issues as a kid, and never had it come back to haunt me until this last trip Da Region this month. I've been home a week and am still sicker than the proverbial dog over the ragweed allergy flareup I experienced.

I hope that for our 50th we can convince people to move it up to May or June before the ragweed flowers; otherwise I am not sure I can justify the reunion joy against the horrible allergic reaction I may again experience in August or September return to the Midwest?

What do you think about that?

take care.

Hey!!! CHUCKIE!!!!

Welcome aboard, 'yall!

philip macdonald has left an In Memory comment for Peggy Kursch.
Jul 05, 2016 at 8:33 PM

I dated Peggy for a while at HHS.  When my father finally heard me mention her last name, he said KURSCH???  DID YOU SAY KURSCH???

It turned out her dad was a high level manager in dad's food chain @ US Steel.

Peggy sure was a riot.  I was stunned when I realzed she was gone.

Hello, Ms. Olson.

I had no idea we were living this close together.

If you want to NOT like me, well, I was not exactly a prince at times.

I still admire you.

I live in Placentia, in the O.C.

Go! Brickies!

:(

My dad was a tinsmith, but really a pent up artist. He made stuff like this years ago before he died in 1984.

#2 Daughter Nikki (around 2009) couldn't find work in LA so she's working in Cordoba, Argentina until May. Her Spanish is getting LOTS better. Now they can't tell if she's Cuban (her mom) or Argentine.

See that Associated Press rendering of the new LA football stadium? Her group did that!

#1 Daughter Kelly (left) is about to get a PhD in American Studies from Bowling Green in Ohio. She's getting married next June to a nice guy from Taxachussets.

Me, Nikki, Kelly around 2005. Nikki looks like her Cuban mom, and Kelly looks just a wee bit Scottish. See what a month in the hospital will do to your waistline?

#1 Kelly on our Road trip to Bowling Green. You'd be shocked what you can get into a Honda Civic.

Within 2 minutes of getting out of the car, people were asking me directions. I finally figured out they thought I was a ranger...
