I promise, NO blond jokes.

Now for something completely different. There is an older
Bomber celebrating a birthday today. I knew him back then. We
"thesped" together on the auditorium stage in two different
productions. In one, I don't think we shared the stage; in
the other we had a whole act together. And then, sometime
after graduation, he went and married a fellow classmate of
mine. Some how neither event computes; but such are the
foibles of life.

A tip of the ol' propeller beanie and a "Happy Birthday!" to
Gene BARFUSS ('53). Be sure to pick up the tab if Treasure
('54) takes you out to dinner.

Re: Bill SCOTT ('64) Books

I have to throw my opinion in here about Bill Scott's latest
book "The Electric Woman." I read this book (as well as his
other 5 books) and loved it. I truly believe this book would
make a fantastically successful movie. Wish I was in the
business.

To: Ann Thompson, aka Anna May Wann ('49) amd
	Deedee Willox Loiseau ('64)

Profuse and heartfelt thanks to both of you for your positive
reactions to The Electric Woman. I've had similar reactions
from others, such as "I didn't think I'd like it but . . ."
or "It's not the kind of book I usually read, but . . .". You
are my best marketing team right now. As to the Seattle Times
article Ann Thompson mentioned regarding the new Chinese
android: it proves what I've said before about The Electric
Woman-that this stuff is far from fantastical, and it is
coming faster than we think. It seems my writing is barely
ahead of developing reality!

To: Marsha GOSLIN Brehm ('65) and Gary Brehm ('64 Lion)

We are all so thankful that Gary took this journey of letting
us know and the continued updates about you. We are all with
you guys to give you strength by whatever means it takes ie
praying, emailing, calling or Sandstorm.

Not to put pressure on you, but please continue with the
updates through your chemo, radiation and whatever comes
next. Even though, I am praying, I don't consider myself a
'pray worrier". But, God hears our prayers no matter how
large or small they are. Blessings to you!!

Re: making new friends

Before I start the festivities lemme just say that 50 years
ago at 4am I awoke to nearly the entire country of Vietnam
under siege during the Tet Offensive of 1968. Remember our
brothers and sisters.

Now... I gotta say that I can only wish (and I try never to
wish) that I could have met every kid who ever went to Col-Hi
and its precursors... As I look through eh Columbians I
recognize faces from the sandstorm and just think I shoulda
been more open and greeting back inna day... the guy I am
celebrating today and I became acquainted via sandstorm and
email... I look for him on the SS and read every word... we
have all lived diverse lives since leaving Mac Hall and I
can't tell you how I enjoy learning about the lives for
fellow Bombers... I can only hope he considers me as much a
friend as I consider him... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Dennis HAMMER
('64) on your special day, January 31, 2018!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
