  Hope you all have a Happy and Prosperous 2002!

  This past week, I received an invitation (from her family) to a party in honor of Margaret Racy, who was nominated to run the Olympic Torch through the Tri-Cities on Jan. 25th. Good choice!!! She was nominated by her granddaughters (Patrick Culwell & Linda (Racy's) girls. Margaret has been an active Tri-Citizen for many years. Margaret was my Pasco Junior High School Health Teacher and her husband, Mikel, was my Algebra and History teacher in Junior High.
  When I went to C.B.C. four years later 1960 (after Jr. Hi.), Margaret was in charge of the C.B.C. P.E. Department. She was my tennis, swimming, golf, basketball, & volleyball coach, which covered my team sports and P.E. credit classes.
  Mikel & Margaret have been joining our PHS Class of 1960 reunions every 5 years, through several reunions. They are lots of fun and never seem to age. We look their age, now. Gee, they must have been young when we had them for teachers in Junior High.
  Mikel and Margaret are both active in Senior Citizen and Retired Teacher events in the Tri-Cities.

  Tell Cliff Brown that we really enjoy his chapters of life and we wonder when he is going to publish his first novel on Life in the Tri-Cities. Keep those stories coming. We have gotten lots of chuckles from them and a lot of enjoyment.
  Yes, the Tri-Cities was a great place to grow up!

  Hello everyone. I thought about the winters in Pasco this past weekend while attending my brothers 40th wedding anniversary. Could any one of us wait for snow. Especially when we were going to mighty Pasco Junior High. I remember after having the snow get nice and packed down on the streets it was time for hicky-bobbing time. Doyle Clapper, Ray Alvis, and anybody else that we could get to decoy cars for us helped. For the unlearned, hicky-bobbing is the fine art of grabbing the back of a car bumper and getting pulled all around town without getting caught or injured. Clapper had worked out a routine so the rest of us could sneak in behind the car, grab onto it and ride baby ride. Of course, we all took turns being the decoy. Since today's cars don't have bumpers as such, hicky-bobbing has gone the way of many things. I wonder if anybody still watches the grapes grow after the football games? Growing up on the Eastside of the state is much easier, slower, and better.

  This is a wonderful idea to be able to catch up with friends and reminisce about what life was like in the 50's, 60's, and beyond.

  Happy 2002 from snowy Sisters, Oregon!
  I hope all is well with those of you that have not been writing lately. Did I succeed in apply guilt? No... then I'll tell you that the Bombers site has 6-12 or more submittals a day, every day. Come on, I know there are some good memories and interesting thing going on out there.
  Oops, maybe the deal is that the Bombers don't have a life outside of the computer.

  Okay, enough all ready. Have a good year and you'll hear from me again soon.

Just me,
