Life Journey:

graduated 65, drafted 66.

Airport and was Customer Service Manager at San Francisco Intr'l Airport. Left the airline industry during deregulation and got what was supposed to be a temporary job with the Post Office. I started as a clerk and worked my way into maintenance. USPS sent me to various courses at their Technical Training campus in Norman Ok. At 55 retired from USPS along about the same time I retired from being a NCAA umpire. Enrolled at American Career College, graduated 2004 with a pharmacy license. Retired for real this time at present anyway. Do volunteer work at Orange Coast Memorial Hospital in Out Patient Rehab which fits nicely with my experience as a group fitness and aerobic instructor. Life is GOOD!!!!!

Most Memorable Moment at School:

Senior year, assigned parking spot 1st row in front of sophomore quad. We had been partying the night before. I was in the sophomore quad area visiting when one of my friends pointed to my 56 Chevy and began laughing. Apparently I or someone had hidden a six pack of Coors in front of my radiator and behind the grill and you could see it very plainly. Needless to say I made a beeline to my car and re-hid the contraband.

Favorite 60's Entertainment:

Folk music - The Prison of Socrates - The Mecca - Joan Baez - The Retail Clerks Union Hall dances

Summer of 1965:

Surfing daily

Here is the annual picture of the mighty, woodsman hunting the elusive, perfect Christmas tree with his two, trusted sherpas, Lauryn and Emma. Notice the imported, debonair French beret given to me by a great friend who now lives in France. Notice pink crocs are missing...in the immortal words of Elmer Fudd, "You have to be w'vary, w'vary, quiet sneaking up on Christmas trees!" Hope y'all have a very, Merry Christmas!

Good news said the blind man who picked up his hammer and saw. The VA is treating this ex-fly guy real good. They gave me new glasses with prisms and most of my eye sight is restored. Short phone calls are appreciated. Call @ 714-955-3632

Here we are at Drake Stadium after the women's soccer match. It was a great game with a not so great ending. UCLA lost to Stanford 3-2 in the second overtime period.
