Am now age 82. This Covid-19 has caused me to pause, so to speak - and shut down my really active business life. However I will take solace in my writing. Maybe I will do another book. Maybe I'll update my memoirs.

School Story:

My memories of high school are almost 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 ability. I had great joy playing in the Ashley marching band and concert band. At Duke I played in the mar

Reggie, happy birthday - again. Keep on having them. Every time I wake up in the morning I ask myself, "How did I get to be 82? Where did all those years come from and how did they go by so fast? It is kind of a strange feeling and yet I don't feel any different than I did 50 years ago. I'll admit, and injury has caused me to not be able to walk as I should, but other than that - life is good. Even with the slight disability - at least it isn't mental. I hope you are well and happy. I just recent emerged and recovered from a case of COVID-19 - but I beat it just like every other health issue that has come along. It was not fun, I can tell you that, but regardless of what anyone says, we have the best medical care in the world. Take care and keep on living. Happy Birthday, again.

Happy birthday to Keith Brunnemer - my freshman roommate at Duke. I couldn't have had a better roommate or friend if I had looked all over the world. Keith's wit and wisdom are a gift to all to all that know him. Best wishes for the Day and the years to come.

Rachel, you are a trooper - knee replacement - then birthday tomorrow. God bless you and that great fellow, Gene, for looking after you. I don't know how long you will be in the hospital but I have been hospitalized on my last two - 81 and 82. Best wishes always.

Happy birthday, Martha. I hope you are well and avoiding the COViD. Carol and I got our second vaccination shots last Wednesday. No side effects - just a little soreness on the arm. I was told by a nurse at the Levine Cancer Institute that the shots seem to cause more reaction among younger people. I speculated that we older folks have developed more antibodies over the years. But who knows? Most of the people that I know, our age, seemed to do well. I hope this is a great birthday for you and that you will have a great year this year - and many more to come. Best wishes always - David Jordan

Happy birthday, John. It's great that one of the nicest guys from the Class of 1957 is still around to celebrate. I hope you are keeping safe from the Covid. Carol and I get our second shots on the 3rd. My life, however, is one continuing group of visits to various doctor's clinics

Happy birthday, Big John. Sorry this is a day late, but the good wishes are still there. I was kind of tied up yesterday - plus medical appointments today, but glad to be on this side of the grass, as Bill Forbes like to say. May the years ahead bring you health and happiness - and stay away from the Covid-19. Carol and I got our first vaccination shot Wednesday. No problems. Best wishes always - David

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.

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.

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.
