  Dawn, you mention your mom. How is she doing? She must be getting up in years. She was my English and drama teacher in the 8th grade. You might remember me as Judy's tennis team friend at PHS.

  I just read some of the notes and nostalgia demanded I subscribe. Great to see names and notes from the past. By the way, where has the time gone?

Regards!

  Just finished reading the most recent entries and had to share some thoughts.

  I'm sitting here listening to the San Francisco Giants play the Chicago Cubs, wondering if this will be the night that Barry Bonds hits the big 600th homerun. Knowing that I sold all my Giants tickets for August, I now feel that I cheated myself out of an opportunity to witness another bit of baseball history. But I can't possibly attend all the games, so bummer. I love baseball and have been a full season ticket holder since 1988. So Mike Pugh and any others want to talk baseball, it's okay with me!!

  Reading Steve Booth's comments, made me think back to cruising Pasco and Kennewick. Court Street to A&W, and then a spin through Dog N Suds, then downtown, over the bridge, zip through Zips and then back again. Now days, everyone wants their 4X4's lifted, and their 2X4's slammed, or lowered. Whatever happened to "raking" the vehicle?? Nose down and rear end lifted? I think it's a customizing feature that's due for a comeback. What do you think?

  Does anyone remember Mrs. Parker? She was my third grade teacher at Captain Gray elementary? She was a wonderful teacher. I know that in 1966 she was principal of the kindergarten out by the airport (kinda - it's a little fuzzy in my mind).

  I am also looking for someone that I lost touch with. We were neighbors and best friends in grade school. Her name was Kay Greeno. She graduated in 1966. I last saw her about 25 years ago. She was married and had a lovely home in Kennewick. I do not know her married name and lost her address. If anyone can help me locate my long lost friend Kay, I would be very grateful.

  Would you believe, Barry Bonds just hit his 599th home run!!!

Best Wishes to you all,

  Now that I've been eavesdropping on this alumni chat for a while, thought I'd pipe in and say, Yeh, Bulldogs. Funny how those high school years seem to be the best ever, yet when you were in them, you weren't always so sure. As the years go by the perspective changes.
  Never get to Pasco any more since my dad died and mom moved to Portland but have enjoyed all the chat about the Edgar Brown Stadium and such. I lived across the street on Margaret St. when that was first being built. Seems like so many moons ago.
  Anyway, hope the `67 reunion gets a good turnout and they have a grand time. Anyone wanna say hi, please write.

Go Bulldogs!

To Steve Boothe:
  I lived on your block also -- you mentioned all the guys in the neighborhood but none of the girls -- Karen and Paula Turya, Marilyn Hales, me, (Le'Ann McAllister), the Grant girls, Ann Witters etc. We had a great neighborhood. Do you remember building forts in the vacant lot? We dug down deep and put boards over it. It is a wonder it did not fall in on us! One more memory -- I gave you my first boy-girl kiss in your backyard when I was 10 years old!!! Believe it!
  Steve Eads, my cousin, moved into our house after we bought another one. He now lives in Australia. I also remember roller skating around the Hales house and by Karyn Turya's house. Do you???

To Nancy Jane Blevins Thorpe:
  Just watch what you call me!!! But I am the younger, better looking one!

P.S. Steve Boothe -- How can you remember all that stuff -- especially at our age!!!
