>>From: Bob Carlson, aka Mike CLOWES ('54)

In my opinion the old "Ike" jacket uniform the Army had was
a much better looking uni than the green thing they are
currently wearing. At least it looked better with "bloused"
boots.

At any rate, let us not forget a younger Bomber Babe of my
recent acquaintance. Met her at a Fife lunch a few years back,
and I've seen her at a Portland/Vancouver (USA) lunch or two.
Even ran into her at a Club 40 Annual Meeting. Vaguely
remember her from school.

A tip of the ol' propeller beanie and a "Happy Birthday!" for
Barbara CROWDER ('55) on the occasion of her 21st. I just hope
she doesn't overdo the celebration and miss out on the eclipse
which is rumored to be next Monday, weather permitting.

-Bob Carlson, aka Mike CLOWES ('54) ~ Mount Angel, OR where 
   pleasant weather prevails for the moment.

>>From: Helen CROSS Kirk ('62)

We are in Brewster, WA looking forward to our 55 year High
School Reunion for the class of 1962!! {August 18 & 19}

We drove into Washington on I-5 from Oregon. The state, as is
Oregon is very dry, unlike the excess of water in Northern
California where we saw waterfalls that usually don't last
into August. Looking forward to getting to attend the class 
of '62 reunion this weekend.

After that, we stop off at WSU!!

   Washington State highway 23 heading toward WSU!!*

>>From: Linda REINING ('64)

Having been married to a "Coastie" for over eight years, I've
been enjoying all the entries about the USCG

Dale Gray ('58wb-RIP) was stationed on Ice Breakers, except
when he was in Viet Nam, then he patrolled the Mekong Delta,
and when he was stationed in Astoria, Oregon - patrolled 
the Columbia River and was involved in search and rescue
operations - a job he wasn't fond of, since one time, it was
a "recovery", not a rescue. Only "plus" to that "duty" was 
that he could fish off the ship and catch all the salmon he 
wanted.grin 

-Linda REINING ('64) ~ Kuna, ID ~ lots of people in the Boise,
    Idaho area are preparing for the eclipse, that will 
    pass over this area and last about 3 minutes on 8/21/17
