   [Missed most of AKA's post yesterday... here it ALL is]

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

As hard as it may seem, there are still people out there who
don't believe Clark Kent is Superman. I'm not sure on where
those people stand on the Easter Bunny. It would seem likely
they are the one's who block the Junior Gyrene's ('65)
emails. Sad news, I know.

On a happier note, today {yesterday - 8/27 - by the time this
got this in the Sandstorm] is the birthday of a Bomber Babe.
From my recollections of the past, I think I was afraid to
talk to her in the "hallowed halls" or even at Hi-Spot. Not
sure why. But 45 years later we did talk. Not about much, and
I did recognize her straight away.

With a flourish of the ol' propeller beanie and a "Happy
Birthday!", I celebrate Judi PEARSON's ('54) 22nd birthday.
It may not have taken an eclipse, but she did make it this
far, and I hope she keeps on going. With her spirit, I think
she will. Have a nice one, even if it is a 150 degrees in the
shade down there in Old Arizony.

-Bob Carlson, aka Mike CLOWES ('54) ~ Mount Angel, OR where
	the nineties have returned to the daily forecasts, but
	so far no rain even though the State Fair started last
	Friday.

Richard, I have also heard the Texan story but have been
assured that Texans excrement does indeed have a odor but it
is identified as Vanilla Ice Cream.

It is so nice to read, Richard, that after 75 years of living
you haven't changed a bit! Look forward to seeing you in 2020
at our 60 year Reunion.

	fields and grape vineyards meet the Pacific

I am part Irish too but I don't boast about - see nothing to
boast about. I don't think most of the Irish people in the US
know their history, especially their history in our country!!
I have been married to two Irishmen and they both were pretty
good drinkers, actually more than pretty good. I am also
French, English, Scot, German and Scandinavian with trace
amounts of Iberian Peninsula and European Jewish!! So
thankful for the mix!!! Enjoyed your entry Richard!!

Re: wet dirt inna jar

Now, as he was way older than I on May 27, 1948, the B-day
Bomber will remember the events far clearer than I (I was
only 18 months old). In fact, if I check EBAY, I don't doubt
that I should be able to find a jar of silt he is selling
from the deluge... be that as I may, my first "memory" (that
I recall) my mother says I didn't experience at all... I
recall riding on a train "with blue lights" as my mother took
me to Iowa during the flood... I have always had the memory
and have only ridden on one train... go figure... So Prayers
for those suffering from this latest storm and HAPPY
BIRTHDAY, Gary BEHYMER ('64) on your special day, August 28,
2017!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(PS Mr TWEDT ('64) said it was 114 in Palm Desert yesterday)!

Re: Texas

Texas is not only a state, it is a state of mind. One of the
greatest places to live. 

I wasn't born here, but I got here as soon as I could.
Resident Alien!!!! Like Jerry Jeff Walker sings in "London
Homesick Blues" "the prettiest women, and the friendliest
people in the world".
