I might be able to make the 18th.  I will be in ABQ the 15 and 16 so maybe I can stretch it out to the 18th. If so Susan would probably come too.

Mary Ann Simanek (Villarreal)

The 18th is best for me.

Walter Huebner

18th is my vote as well, even thought decision has been made!

Helen Stambaugh (Williams)

I think I can do the 18th, have a couple of things scheduleld, but think I can work around them.

December Classmates' Birthday Lunch
Monday, December 18, 1 PM
66 Diner
1405 Central NE (across from Presbyterian Hospital)

Thanks to everyone who checked in with date preferences -- I'll assume that those are confirmations, unless we hear otherwise.  No single date will work for everyone who wants to be there, and we always hope to see the others on some other occasion.  

This time  we'll be celebrating Rhonda Beauchamp Blech, and perhaps others.  We're glad that you've made it for another year!

So far, I count nine of us who are available for lunch on Monday the 18th -- Sandy, Neal, Marty, Betty, Susan, Mary Ann, Walt, Helen and me.  Any others?

Count me in, too.

I am sorry to say I will noit be coming. I need to be back home Monday. Will miss not being there. Happy birthday, Rhonda and Merry Christmas to all.

Rhonda Beauchamp (Blech)

Thank you, Betty. I will be there.

I’ll be there

I'm looking forward to seeing y'all for lunch on Monday!  Susie plans to be there, and I hope we'll get an update on her recovery from the house fire -- and, if anyone has heard from anyone close to the SoCal fires, I hope we'll hear about that, too. 

Beyond lunch plans, I think everyone knows that there's a warm spot in my heart for the Highland Band, but you may not be aware that another warm spot is occupied by people who shop for books (and other bookstore goodies).  The word is now out, and on Tuesday you can be both a Band supporter and a book-buyer, all at once --

Do your holiday shopping and help the Highland High School Band at the same time! 
On Tuesday, December 19th, if you shop at the Coronado Center Barnes and Noble, at least 10% of your total purchase  will go to the Highland High School Band.  When you shop (in store or online), mention Highland High School Band and give them our bookfair number, 12253449.  You can shop online at BN.COM/Bookfairs
 
The kids will be playing at Barnes and Noble throughout the day and Highland High School Band boosters will be present from 11-7 to answer any questions. 
 
Buy books on December 19th and help the band! Please tell all of your friends and family.

I tell you, amid the news headlines, everyone's personal crises, and frenzy on the streets and in the stores, our classmates do restore my vision that there are still very pleasant spaces in the universe uncluttered by flights of egotistic fancy, alcoholic excess, and wrapping paper.  Sharing the conversation, the company, and the food at yesterday's December birthday lunch were Jerry Goffe, Marty Glantz Farmer, SusieStrong Neuschwanger, Neal Kloepfer, Helen Stambaugh Williams, Karla Irwin Cates, Marcy McVay Cates, Hank and Anna Nusbaum, Rhonda Beauchamp Blech (celebrating her birthday on the 25th with grandchildren and other family), Mary Ann Simanek Villarreal, Sandy Stewart Smallwood, John Criswell, and me.  A few others were kept away by health considerations, travel, or other obligations, and although we missed them, we wish them well.  

No one admitted to having any hot gossip, but Jerry Goffe asked if there was interest in another excursion to play with raptors (or be played with by), and got an enthusiastic response for the January 2018 dates that he suggested.  Most enthusiastic were the five of us present who made the trip last year, since we know just how much fun it turned out to be.  We encouraged Jerry to put the question to everyone who reads this forum, and I hope he'll do that before we all get booked for January.  

We all had the chance to share a couple of Gold Bars, which I've recently learned are available at the 66 Diner.  These confections were not a part of our mutual educational experience, but apparently there are hordes who came after us, who remember this feature of the APS cafeteria system repertoire with misty eyes and drooling mouths.  Unknown to them, they have our classmate, Elaine Weinshenker Keaton, to thank.  And now we've had an opportunity to see what all of the excitement's about.  

And seasonal thanks to Helen Williams, who brought her homemade spritz cookies to share.  I think that most of us took one "to be polite", and on subsequent passings-around, quite a few of us took quite a few more, thus saving Helen from the fate of having to sit at home and eat the whole batch herself.  (Such is the dilemma for those of us who live alone, but can't resist the occasional impulse to bake.)  Delicious, Helen!  

Neal, Susie and I had an informal meeting about the January birthday lunch, and it looks as though "later in the month" will work best.  I'm certainly looking forward to it!  

I hope that each of us has just the holiday that we want to have!

Mark your calendar for Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018 if you’d like to join a small group for a field trip to see and experience raptors such as Harris’s Hawks and Aplomado Falcons. We will leave from the north end of the K-Mart parking lot at Carlisle and I-40 at 7:00 AM sharp. We will travel to San Antonio (New Mexico), have breakfast and meet with Matt Mitchell, a HHS graduate. We’ll then drive out about 12 miles east and have a few hours of fun, excitement, learning and photography. Total travel round trip distance will be about 200 miles and we should be home early afternoon. Please be sure to dress appropriately and bring a hat and a camera. Matt is doing this for us as a favor, so please bring gratuity … his birds will be very appreciative. Any questions should be directed to me, Jerry Goffe, at 385-3333.

I just read of the passing of Gary Gere in the Albuquerque Journal. Rest in Peace, Gary.

I plan on attending the Jan 21st Predator event and am so excited to see it. My sisters would like to attend also if it is not a problem.

Count me in for the Raptor Show.  Marty

A couple of things, in chronological order:

Making Change: The Golden Age of Postcards in Albuquerque (Part 2):
The Photographers and Their Postcards.
Nancy Tucker continues her history of Albuquerque's Postcard
Publishers. Between 1900 and 1920, Albuquerque hosted at least 19
different companies which published postcards of local views. Of the

Date:    Saturday, January 13, 2018
Time:    10:30am - 12:00pm
Location:    Special Collections Library

#2:  Thanks so much, Jerry, for coordinating another trip to play with Matt's raptors!  Put me on the list, and I have been offered a ride.  It would be great to hear from others who plan to go, so that we can work out carpooling. 

#3:  The January birthday lunch will be coming up on Monday, January 29, 1 PM.  Details will follow.

Hi Rhonda,

I saw of her passing also. Trying to get her obituary entered into "in Memory."

I'm really looking forward to the raptor excursion -- now less than a week away!   Who else will be going?  I've accepted a ride in a car pool, and it would probably be a good idea to see who could catch a ride with whom.  Please post here, or give Jerry Goffe a call at 385-3333.  (You could even call me, although Jerry has more answers than I do.)

Quick update:  I got a call from Jerry Goffee this afternoon, postponing Sunday's raptor trip, due to the incoming storm.  Apparently the birds would not be happy about the weather, and we do want the birds to be happy.  So, if you were thinking of showing up spontaneously -- don't! 

We are looking for another date, between now and the end of February, to be as inclusive as possible.  Stay tuned!

Robyn

Robyn (Jane) Cholerton

Okay!  The gentlemen have conferred, and decided upon next Sunday, the 28th, other information the same.  If you're available, please check in, here or by phone with Jerry.  (Or, even, if you're not available, as you like.)  The information is repeated below, adjusted for the new date.

Mark your calendar for SUNDAY, JAN.. 28, 2018 if you’d like to join a small group for a field trip to see and experience raptors such as Harris’s Hawks and Aplomado Falcons. We will leave from the north end of the K-Mart parking lot at Carlisle and I-40 at 7:00 AM sharp.
