Hope this finds you and yours healthy and happy!

Once again it's been months since I have updated this Homepage.  I know this because I get a notice from the server that hosts this web page that it's been six months!  I can only say that I am like most of us - the time just seems to fly by - and yup - I don't get much done either!

My bride of 44 years and I did manage to fit in another baseball trip - this time we went west, and visited and saw games in San Deigo, two in LA (Dodgers and A's), and then to San Francisco (Giants and Oakland A's). I think that makes 20 of the 30 MLB stadiums that we have seen - 

While we were in San Francisco we walked into Needlepoint - the busy yarn and cross stitch shop that is owned and operated by our own Diane (Ulvedahl) Nerheim and her life partner Marv Ugland (CHS Class of 1962).  Really nice to see both of them!  They were both very gracious even though we kind of surprised them both!

Also we had a visit with Dean (Class of 1960) and Karen Schroeder while in Florida . They tell me that they are busy organizing and planning their 60th class reunion - for NEXT year!!!  September of 2020.  Can ours be far behind???  Think abount that for a minute - 60 years since we graced the halls of good ole Central High School!

We'd love to hear from each of you - please take a moment to update your profile, talk about anything you have been doing, even if you have to brag about Grand Kids!!!  Yes - they are the best!

We are planning our annual journey to Florida this winter - seems the winters are getting harder to withstand - but we all know different - winters when we were young were actually cold!  And had SNOW!  Why, I remember walking to school in 6 foot drifts, with winds howlling a 20-30 mph and it being uphill BOTH WAYS!!!

OK - Maybe not - but I do have some great memories growing up in Grand Forks in the 50's and 60's.  Bet you do too!

Stay well - take care!


P.S. Pretend I folded this up and passed it to you under the desk in study hall!
