I know Maren doesn't want to hear this, but it will be 'Bama
and Georgia for all the college marbles. Just not a year for
tigers as Clemson and Auburn both lost. Not a year for the
Pac-12 either; 1 and 8 in bowl games, what happened here?

	[Bob, what makes you think I didn't already KNOW
	alla this BEFORE your entry arrived? AND besides 
	that, NEITHER team (#6 GA or #5 Alabama) should
	have even been in either the Rose Bowl or the 
	Sugar bowl... the only reason Alabama was IN the 
	Sugar Bowl is because cry baby Sabin said "these 
	kids DESERVE to..." yadda yadda yadda. -Maren]

And that, boys and girls, is how New Years Day can be wasted.

But there is a bright side, Maren, those "Fighting Black
Baptists" from South Bend, IN won. [Yes, they did... they
beat my LSU tigers. -Maren]

-Bob Carlson, aka Mike CLOWES ('54) ~ Mount Angel, OR were 
	all there is to do now is wait for the 1099's so the
	taxes can be done.

Re: takin' a chance

Well whether it is today or tomorrow, this guy and I had 
some great times together during our years at Col-Hi (Bomber
Calendar says tomorry... face book says today)... Been
trying to figure how we hooked up, but ya know I just can't
recall... most kids I remember right about the time I met
them but all I remember is runnin' together all through the
two years we spent together in High School... only two cuz he
was a year older than I and judging where his house was on
GWWay, he would a gone to the other Jr. High... I can never
recall the name... these days I try and figure out which
house was his but the driveways all look different than I
remember them... ah ha... 209 was the address according to my
trusty lil' Richland phone book... do you know they actually
had dialing instructions in the front of the phone book...
instructions for a dial phone... dang! Anyway, HAPPY
BIRTHDAY, Gary "Rice Checks" RALSTON ('64) on your special
day, January 2, 2018!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
