Hi Bill,

I would like to thank you for posting the information about Eric. It is good to know that a fellow Hornet was instrumental in protecing lives of others. May he "Rest in Peace."

We are nervously amused, having read my husband's invitation to his 60th high school reunion, which says,

"Mark your calendars, NOTIFY YOUR CAREGIVERS,  and plan to join us."    At this point, we don't need

caregivers and are very grateful for that.    I hope that if you get to gather in September, none of you has to be wheeled in on a gurney by your personal assistant.

All well here in Utah.

I have not had time to read posts for a month or 2 and caught up today as I saw a birthday to respond to.  Where does time go?  Almost half way through April!.  Last year seems like a blur.  Hope all are well and glad Don is doing well post op.  The Utah connection seems well also.  Ran away from home and the business of mny practice for a quick trip to see grandkids in California and Phoenix and feel renewed again.  We have lived in a wonderful time and everyday is an adventure.  Could not seem to get rid of one grandson who wanted to tag along but succeeded to shake him.  Have a great Spring wherever you are!

Question Steve: Is the horn on that beautiful bike as loud as that shirt? ;>)

I realize there is an open season on motorcycles in Arizona so I try to be as visible as possible.  I almost visited you but it was the week with crazy weather around the 22nd of March and I stayed south in the desert for 3,500 miles.

Sorry we missed you, maybe next time we can meet for a ride up to Prescott on the back road through Wickenburg, Congress and Yarnell and have lunch. Great ride, hour and a half. Absolutely agree about being seen..
PS Good looking boy!

HOWDY, POTENTIAL LUNCH MATES!  I'm thinking to get us started gently by planning a picnic lunch at Hyder Park in the SE near Whittier Ele.  It will be a "bring your own lunch and a chair" affair.  We will start at 1pm on the second Monday of June-- June 14.  It would be so nice to know if anyone would come. (Anticipation!)  Would you RSVP here, please, or you could private message me if you prefer to make your presence a surprise!

Oh My goodness.  Sounds like so much fun.  So many of you able to get together finally!  If I had a jet, i'd be right there:-)

Your get-to-gethers have been so uplifting these past two years.  Yes, it has been that  long since I have been on. While a lot of you don't know me, I have gotten to know you and am so very proud to be a part of our class. The saying "Life Happens when You are making other plans" is so true.

Two years ago the end of this month and into June Life was finally beginning to calm down after loosing a dear classmate to Cancer.  Then came news of my dear Jill (Terrerington) Alfrey was dealing with cancer. We knew each other since three years of age.  I found out later in a frinzie of two weeks and my health she had died.  The last time I heard from her was that she made it to the hospital before me.  One evening I was lifelighted to Salt Lake City for surgery that  could not be performed in Boise.  I had a fishtail they called it that came out of cancer in my right kidney.  Loved and blessed by my Lord and the skillful hands of three surgeons I was saved within a quarter inch.  The fishtail had  left the kidney and went through the diaphram up to the first ventrical into the heart and hooked there.  Three weeks later after returning home from surgery and two weeks rehab I found out that Jill had died. We've all been faced with heart wrenching issues this past two years, so I will not go into it anymore.

The kidney was removed and then a tumor had matastisized  in the bone #5 in my back.  16 weeks radiation and now a year of therapy I am doing very well. At this moment I am off chemo ($1000 pill a day) and will have a full body scan on the 12th.  Since December there has been no new cancer.  I'm believing it will keep being that way. And so I now have been vaccinated, new drivers license star card and updated passport and ready for TRAVEL and Life is Wonderful!     I am off to my nunber one bucket list trip on June 7th to Mackinac Island, MI.  I had been there in 2015 and knew I would be back.  I had begun plans when my life had a pivot.  I'm back on track now and very excited to return where my spirit and soul were at peace while there.

Thank you for the birthday wishes last month.  They meant a lot to me.  Please forgive me for being so long in this message and in saying hello sooner.I look forward to hearing all about the lunch and what you are all doing. 

The butterfly brings Hope and Happiness to us.  I wish these for you and warm sunshine.  Sally :-)
