To Marcia Bailie Plows (66) and anybody else that's interested:
I am living in Phoenix with my wife, Sharon, and have been here since leaving Pasco in 1985. It is a great place if you ignore the 3 million other people. Great weather, golf, sights, concerts, restaurants, sports, etc.
Mary Anne is also living here mainly to be close to the kids and grandkids. Our two kids are living here with their spouses. Leslie Anne has three daughters and I guess they are about the cutest granddaughters anybody could ask for. I know for sure that they are the smartest.
Scott still lives in Aloha and has email but doesn't look at it very often. He is getting really old and hard to get along with. Oh, wait, that's his dog that is getting old and cranky. Scott and Di are generally fun to be with especially in Vegas when the band is hot and the drinks are cold. He is one terrible teacher of how to shoot dice. Never take his advice in that regard.
Doug has built a house in North Pasco on the hill out by the airport - it has a name but I don't remember it. He put in a daylight basement for the folks and they have moved off of Hopkins. They are both doing really well and are still fun to be around. He is still working for Tri-City Herald and works out a lot. The man is way too healthy and needs to adopt a few of my eating and resting habits.
And, I guess that's about it for this update. Anybody that needs more can contact me directly.

It's almost like a time machine this message board. I'm remembering all sorts of old memories, way too many to type with 2 fingers, lmao. I'll just say "Howdee" to all that remember Cliff and me, it's the Kootneai river I think you were thinking of. As for Jay, Jim and your adventures in broadcasting, I remember a night at the radio clubhouse with Jay, neither of us had a general license and were CQing all over. Had we had computers then, more havoc would have been raised. I remember the Drum and Bugle Corps as I lived close to Sears before we moved to Margaret St. back in 57. Doyle Clapper was my neighbor and he was like Fonzy with the DA haircut and all. Just lately I came to this years Hydroplane races. Touring around with Joe Fleming we ran into Tom Roach on Saturday, and Bob Butterfield, Art Weltz, and Dave Smith on Sunday. My 9-year-old son came with me on the trip. This was his 3rd time seeing them and he really enjoys it every time we come down, plus he gets to see Grandma and the rest of the family...
Patti, "live music if possible" - looking forward to next years reunion, it should be a lot of fun.
I hope more folks get inspired to comment on here. I remember a lot of the names mentioned, as my older sister Shula Kaye graduated in 65. Both her and my twin brother Jim live in Tri Cities. I myself live in the "Big Sky Country" of Montana. My parents moved to Libby 3 days after graduation and I was real bummed about not spending my senior summer in Pasco. NW Montana kinda grew on me and after traveling around the N.W. I moved back here in 81 and am retired due to an injury to my back in 96. A lot has changed in the Tri-City area since graduation but I'll never leave Montana. I like the pace of life here too much.
Let 's see how long it takes for my brother to comment on here....... hey brother Jim, ya reading this???
I'll try and add to this forum when I can - "ya'll be good.".... see ya at the reunion.
