"They" say that it is supposed to be raining today. I'm not
sure at this moment; in any case, film at 11.

All of minor importance. A Bomber Babe, whom I know and sorta
remember from school is having a birthday today. That, by
itself, is cause for celebration. And when you couple it with
the guys meeting at Bob's Burgers and Brew and the girls
congregating at Applebee's (on GWWay); it's really a bang up
day.

A tip of the ol' propeller beanie and a "Happy Birthday!" to
Dorothy STAMPER ('54) on this, her 23rd birthday. Enjoy the
day.

Re: The family grows

I have a new Great Grandson. The total is now 10.

Born 12-13-17 morning.
William David Toponak
9 lbs 3 ozs, 21 inches

All is well with Mother and son.

He will have an older brother and 5 sisters to look after
him. They are a "close knit" family. And yes Great Grampa is
right pleased! They live in Buffalo, NY.

Re: Long term friendships

I never tire of being grateful for growing up in Richland.
How many places can kids "grow up" and remain friends into
their "senior" years? Not many... many of my friends have
seldom or never contacted kids they grew up with... I suppose
I would be used to it if I came from somewhere else, but I am
hooked... today's Bomber-babe is one of those friends I have
cherished since very early childhood. I'm talking Jefferson
here folks... that means kinnygarden... wow... HAPPY
BIRTHDAY, Marsha GOSLIN ('65) on your special day, December
15, 2017!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

	in the nation last week, the Richland High boys
	basketball team was rewarded this week.

	The Bombers came in at No. 21 in Week 3 of the USA
	Today Super 25 Expert Rankings.

	It's been a couple of big weeks at Richland, with
	the football team winning the Class 4A state
