Re: contempt before investigagion

First! I missed Joann BUSHNELL's ('65) b-day on the 11th so
making up for it!... OK so I just finished doing the first 
of the season's round up... I hafta laugh every time someone
tells me it's agent orange... if the amount I swallowed 
in 13 months didn't kill me... well... my dad was always
"checking" me for symptoms... I ALWAYS pour the stuff into 
my huge HEAVY sprayer and lug it around cuz their first 
sprayers were for shit... I decided to try the one on the 
jug... Damn... I've been lugging that other one around all
these years... duh! I love that when I am finished and all
put away I take a rest in a chair that is surrounded by a
field of dandelions I have managed to miss!!!!!! ah but the
good news is we got some "good-unz" today... One guy I miss
like crazy and I guess I always will... I've decided I am
damn well gonna wear his 20th reunion shirt to '63's 55 year
this year (I always leave it in my suitcase... get self
conscious er sumthin' I dunno)... nuther guy from school I've
finally hooked up with cuz he do live a fer piece away... and
one a them sweet lovely Bomber-babes that I just swoon to see
every chance I get (yeah... I get mushy over Bomber-babes and
damned proud of it!)... So HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Freddie SCHAFER

Re: Bomber Basketball ~ 2/11/18 Tri-City Herald 

	"RICHLAND QUELLS HOT-SHOOTING FERRIS, ADVANCES TO
	DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP."

	By Dustin Brennan dbrennan@tricityherald.com 

	"The Richland High School boys basketball team is
	going back to the Tacoma Dome.

	Cole NORTHROP ('19) scored 28 points on 7 of 12 3-
	point shooting, and for the third time in the past
	2 years, the Bombers beat the Ferris Saxons in a
	postseason game, 84-79 on Saturday in the District
	8 4A semifinals at Art Dawald Gymnasium.

	Although Richland must still play in the district
	championship - at 7:30 p.m. Friday against the
	top-ranked Gonzaga Prep Bullpups - and in the
	regional round of state, the team is guaranteed a
	spot in at least the Round of 12 in Tacoma because
	of its RPI ranking, fourth among the state's 4A
	teams as of Saturday night."

Re: Adam WEISSENFELS ('18) ~ 2/9/18 Tri-City Herald 

	By Dustin Brennan dbrennan@tricityherald.com 

	"HE PACED RICHLAND'S AERIAL ATTACK AND DEFENSE.
	NOW HE'S ON TRACK TO FLY FOR THE NAVY."

	"Adam WEISSENFELS ('18) defended the Richland High
	School football team's end zone for the past three
	years. Now he's looking to protect something of a
	little greater magnitude.

	The Richland senior accepted his appointment into
	the United States Naval Academy on Wednesday,
	making official his commitment to the prestigious
	school in Annapolis, Md., and to the U.S.
	military."

Go Bombers!

I gave this 1954 Chevy truck to my son when he was a
sophomore in High School. It was a two tone faded grey and
silver. After driving it for two years without any major
damage we decided to paint it a Tri-Coat Red. It was painted
in 1995 and has held up quite well over the years! That extra
passenger is my son's buddy's daughter. Yes he did win "COOL
CARof the year!!!!!!
