With out further ado, I'll get right to the gist of this
entry. There is one of the younger Bomber Babes celebrating
and important birthday today. She has finally turned 21 and
can now legally enter any adult watering hole without having
an older person "beard" for her. I just hope she doesn't
overdo things today.

A tip of the ol' propeller beanie and a "Happy Birthday!" to
Laura Dean KIRBY ('55). I truly hope the day goes well for
you.

-Bob Carlson, aka Mike CLOWES ('54) ~ Mount Angel, OR  where 
      next Friday, Silverton will start the Homer Davenport 
      Community Festival. Who knows, we might run into each 
      other there; if you come or I go.

First of all, Happy Birthday to my husband's cousin, Ellen
BOHRINGER ('66). Hope you had a great day, Ellen.

Paula BEARDSLEY ('62), your birthday has snuck by me on FB.
Hope you had a great day too!! See you at our reunion in less
than a month now!!

Great about the soccer team doing so well.

Re: Perry MOORE's ('63) Birthday

I want to wish my long-time friend and classmate, Perry, a
happy birthday this Friday. May you and your lovely wife
Linda enjoy many more. We spent many evenings at Zip's in our
high school days discussing cars ...  and other things. It was
like Happy Days in Richland. 

-John CAMPBELL ('63)
