Re: Birthday

Happy birthday to baby brother John ('66). 70 is difficult to
comprehend! Looking back over the years, all your antics and
"Boy" scrapes and scraps kept us entertained and bewildered.
We were used to "Girly" things. Your antics prepared me for
having four wild boys of my own. Through it all, you were the
most thoughtful, compassionate child we had ever encountered.
How you survived having six "mothers" to boss you and smother
you (Sometimes thinking about it literally) has amazed us.
You take care of all of us now that we are old, and it's
greatly appreciated. Personally, I enjoyed every minute of
playing ball with you and I'll never forget the pin that you
bought for me at the school carnival when you were in
kindergarten. One of the two big glass stones was missing and
the pin was bent, but I still wore it. I still have it. The
look on your face when at five years old you brought me a
dead cat, (Dragging it by the tail) and wanted me to make it
better. These are memories that will last forever. This last
year has been a rough one for the Cole family, and you've
done your best to take care of us. I know this is a mushy
birthday greeting, but my excuse is I'm old. 

Love you, brother! 
 Barbara ('50) Patti ('52) Karen ('55) Jackie and Judie ('63)

Re: Story Telling

Re: Terry DAVIS Knox'('65) entry Saturday

Having lived across the street from Terry, let me assure one
and all, that is quintessentially Terry. And this definition
fits perfectly (perhaps excepting "silent"):

1.representing the most perfect or typical example of a
quality or class: "he was the quintessential tough
guy-strong, silent, and self-contained" synonyms:typical,
prototypical, stereotypical, archetypal, classic, ... more

Regards, ecb3

Re: seen it all

So today we gots a Bomber that I've made clear is one a my
heroes... now you may come up with all kinds a ideas of why
I admire this Kat so much. I mean, he gives so much of his 
time to remembering Veterans along with his buddy ('66), 
that would be a darn good reason... then a gin he's a loyal 
pal and is almost always with his great friends ('65/'66)
celebrating something... he's married to a fantastic Bomber-
babe ('66) and that would be a very good reason... he knows
how ta fly a helemecopter... which would be a really kool
thing to do... I mean there are hundreds of reasons for me to
think the most of this Bomber... well leme tell ya... every
time I think of this guy's helicopter goin' down after
tryin' to rescue the guys in another downed chopper... I
think of what he musta been thinkin': "ye tho I fall into 
the valley of death, I shall fear no evil... for I was raised
inna famblie of Richland GIRLS!" HAPPY BIRTHDAY, John COLE
('66) on your special day, February 6, 2018!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Birthday Boy

Booze, broads, sex, kicks... guess who's turning 66???? Happy
Birthday to Mike FRANCO ('70) on the 6th. One only has to
look at a '70 Colombian to see how funny Mike and the '70s
crew were. Some of the most creative skits for pep rallies
ever!!! Hope you have a good one.
