I think our reunion this year was great. I love to
see and get reaquainted with all my classmates. Most
of you looked a lot older than when I saw you last,
for some reason or another; Gil Duncan looked about
the same. You guys gotta stay in shape to be around
for the next 50 years, or so. So, please don't get
any older looking: think thin!
I still play tennis once or twice a week (it hasn't
helped my girth all that much), and keep busy with Boy
Scout district training for scoutmasters (Basic and
Woodbadge). I also spend a fair amount of time on
church activities and assignments.
I still love to camp out, although now its mostly in
our motor home, whenever my wife feels like we can
safely leave the castle. What with all the yard work
and changing the water in the moat, etc., we are
usually limited to about 3 times a year. This year we
drove to Iowa and Illinois for a week or so, and later
we will go to Moab (I'm sure you have all heard of
that lovely garden spot of the universe). We do the
canyon lands of Utah.
I do some occasional consulting work for the Navy back
in Indianhead,MD to help keep our firey-tailed dragons
flying. I just completed a comprhensive handbook on
methods for microstructural characterization of solid
rocket propellants. I'm pretty sure it will make
the "best seller" list this next year, so keep your
eyes open for it.
If any of our classmates ever come to Utah for a
vacation, or whatever, look us up. We are in the Provo
phone book, if you forget our address. We would love
to see you. May God bless you all.
