  I do NOT believe it has been this long.  What happened??

  To Stacy Wise:
  Where are you? And is Scott still in the Portland area? Scott, are you out there? Is Doug around? The last time I saw your folks they were managing the Moose Club(?)  Awaiting an update on the Wise family.

  In reply to Josh [Case] about rivalries: Well, of course I personally didn't participate in any, but at that time (64-66) all of the schools had mascots that went to all games. They were continually the main targets of pranks and mischief by still to be un-named. We had a nice bulldog of course...but I do remember the small bomb at Richland (not the one of controversy today) disappeared for quite some time. Was the Kennewick mascot a stuffed lion? My, the memories that they bring back.

  Did the class of '66 have a reunion this year? Or are we off a year again? Haven't seen too many comments from '66 . . . Where are you guys?

  I'm off to do the Portand to Coast relay walk this weekend. What a fun time. Haven't done this before, but is sounds like a grown-up slumber party with a lot more hard walking then we used to do when we would sneak out of Judy Whitmire's basement and walk around town until the wee hours of the morning. Most of the time we would either meet the boys (Tim Burke and Mike Roach) or just walk all over the neighborhood with no specific purpose. Laugh and giggle and talk about everything. Sneak back into the downstairs window in time for a great breakfast of pancakes, eggs and Judy's mom's special biscuits and gravy. One time when we were in junior high we took her dad's old Plymouth for a spin during the night. Both of us were so short we could hardly see of the dash. We thought we had really gotten away with it until, during breakfast he said "Juanita (Judy's mom), I think someone has been siphoning gas out of my car." You could have heard a pin drop as all of our eyes met." Yicks! That was a close one.
  In high school I remember one of us left (through the window) the slumber party to meet her boyfriend. When she returned her blouse was on wrong-side-out. Boy, did we give her a bad time!! It was a sensitive issue for quite some time. We, of course were sworn to silence. Oh, the slumber parties...talk, Coke, chips, laughing until our sides hurt, story telling, more Coke, more snacks, very little sleep.
  Keep the memories coming in.

  There are so many of you reminiscing about the Columbians Drum & Bugle Corps, I thought I would give you this website. It remembers a lot about the where, when and the scores from various competitions N.W.corps were involved in, past and present:


  To Cliff Brown:
  Howdy! You, Jay and Jim were even more creative & enterprising than I remember! Careful not to let an old retired Pasco cop read your last entry . . . he might come after you! I got to visit Colombia years ago in my Navy days. Remember Mrs. Frey? She was able to teach me enough Spanish that I wound up being the (lousy) interpreter for the Navy Band I was in. I remember it being a pretty scary place at the time. The drummer & bass player were busted by the locals for pot, but paid a bribe and went free.

  To Patty Scharf:
  I was thinking that you were already heading up next year's reunion because of an email I received about a month ago, saying that it was on for Aug. 9th, next year. Anyway, thanks for volunteering. They have always been fun in the past. Mark Gage (67) said, via email that he had a musical group in Alaska and would consider playing at the reunion. I had a group together a few years ago & we talked about playing at reunions . . . but we split up, like so many do. We lasted about 15 years - top 40 becomes nostalgia in the process!

  To Ron Dupuis:
  I stand corrected about our party-line thing. I just returned from Santa Rosa, visiting my brother Barry. When discussing things on this website, he corrected me, saying it was the Hulls and not your family . . . just across the street from you. Wasn't there a Sandy Hull? Maybe she was the friend Linda, my sister, ran around with.

From: Cliff Brown (67)

  I went out for a play in my junior year, consisting of a series of one acts all tied together by the theme of "How to Propose". I was the narrator, telling the audience how the conventions in marriage had changed over the years as a series of little skits would be played out on stage to show how couples first popped the question -- a topic still worth serious study.   It started with the caveman, doing a brute grab routine, moved on through the Victorian era, the Great Gatsby, and somehow ended up with the narrator, me, involved in one of the skits with a very large girl having developed a crush on me. I would be on one end of a park bench when she, after some preliminary small talk, would proclaim "My man!" and throw her arms around me. During the dress performance the bench we were both on actually collapsed at that moment from the lateral movement of her considerable weight, and she ended up on top of me on the floor amidst pieces of broken bench. Crowd loved it.
