Comments:

Am now age 81. I have not retired - am active in property management, forensic tax accounting, and publishing.

School Story:

My memories of high school are allmost all positive. Would I do some things differently if I had the chance? Only a fool would say no to that, but all in all life has been very good. My greatest rewards at Ashley came from being in the band - playing the trumpet - something I carried with me most of my life. I seemed to have been defined by my classmates for my trumpet playing.

Reggie, Happy Birthday to a great guy. Everyone in the Class of '57 wish you a happy birthday and a great life ahead. We that remain are a very fortunate group of people. I sincerely hope this message finds you and your family in good health - and happy.

John, I noticed that last year I was a day or two late in saying Happy Birthday - so I am going to be a day or two early this year (I have some medical appointments the next two days and will be away from my computer). It was good to see you last week in spite of it being at Esther's funeral. However, you sure are looking well and we are all happy about that. Thanks for your help when my legs gave way to the spinal stenosis. Best wishes always to you and your family. Bill Forbes and I are planning some mini-reunions in the future and hope you will be able to join us. It was really nice to see so many of our classmates turn out for Esther's service. She was truly one of the nicest people on earth. Again, best wishes, David

There are some people that we encounter in life that we somehow think of as invincible. I first met Esther Adams when I attended Sunday School at First Presbyterian Church in Gastonia, right after my family moved to Gastonia when I was in the third grade. She always impressed me as one of those invincible people. Perhaps part of it was because she was always taller than I. But all through the years I found that she was indefatigable as well as smart - but always friendly, joyful, prankish, and kind. She will be sorely missed by all that knew her.

Happy birthday, Robert. Yes, I know this is a day or so early, but I have to take time out from my busy schedule and write notes like this on the weekends. (Just joking.)

The Getan' - an experimental boat that my cousin, Bill Harper designed and we built on the Columbia River in Richland, Washington. This amazing craft had five patents in design and construction. Everywhere we went on the river attracted extraordinary attention.

As I age, I am in need of mobility assistance. I now ride on a Pride Go Go electric scooter, graciously provided to me by the Veterans Administration. This neat little 4-wheel electric machine is allowed anywhere that wheelchairs can go. The beautiful companion with me is my beloved wife of 39 years - Dr. Carol.

The Honda Gold Wing luxury motorcycle. This was our pride and joy for fun trips and touring. This picture is atop Seven Devils Mountain - a hair-raising ride with hair-pin curves so tight I had to put my left foot down to make some of the turns.

This is me on a camel - atop The Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. It is one of the most memorable rides in my lifetime. The trip itself was truly inspirational.

My mid-life crisis. I bought a 1978 Silver Anniversary Corvette for myself on my 40th birthday. The first Corvette I ever had was a 1953 original.

Happy birthday, "Old Man." How's it going? I haven't heard from you lately. I hope everything is okay. Shoot me a note and bring me up to date. I've been through a few health challenging issues lately, but decided I'm still going to stick around. Circumstances (economic) are dictating that it is probably time for me to retire. We liquidated our property management business this year - but have some loose ends to tie up with other projects. I've replaced some of my afternoon work hours with naps, so that might be some indication that its time. I will be 81 next month. Happy Thanksgiving. Best wishes always.
