Favorite School Story:

Penny Dana (my wife) stole my "pink" cowboy hat at an after-basketball game dance. Would not give it back to me unless I promised a date with her. Been together ever since.

Many years after graduation (35 yrs), had an opportunity to engage professionally with Tom Green (State Historic Preservation Officer, ID) ) in my role as an officer of the Forest Service (D.C.) Strange how these events cross your paths in life many years later.

here we are in 2022-- all is well with Penny (Dana, class of 1964) and I married 53 years. I'm still working, but not traveling around the nation anymore, COVID brought that to a closure for me. Penny is fully retired from the Postal Service since 2005. Very active in the Freemasons and facilitate strategic planning for a number of non-profits.

Hi Janie -- every once in a while I go into the "El Espiritu" and scan through for memolries.  For what ever reason, Betty is one I will always think about.  We were not close friends, and had a few classes together, but she some how resonated with me over the years.  Sorry for her passing.  I find I'm going back into the annual more often than before looking for good memories.  Your sister contributes to those good menories.
