We are excited about our upcoming adventure and are looking forward to a new city, a new state and a new climate! We are finishing our time here hosting our oldest (19yrs old) granddaughter & her girlfriend to a few days of Lollapalooza. Sponsors expect 160,000 attendees over the 4 day event. Great for the economy, if not for the eardrums !
To all of you in Class of ‘62, may you finish off your summer in good health and good spirits and with joyful anticipation of Autumn and beyond!
Go Seahawks ( & Packers! :)

Hello All, A quick update ... Georgia and I are still in Boulder CO (3 years now) and truly enjoying the seasons. They intermittantly overlap, snowing a couple days, then 50-70 degrees for a few days, off and on throughout fall, winter and spring. We still have a second home on the rocky coast of northern California about a 3 hour drive north of San Francisco. We try spend as much time as possible there, under 6 months (California income taxes are through the roof...13%). The house is in a small, rural community in Sonoma County just south of the Mendocino County line. It's called 'The Sea Ranch' with its own zip code and lies on a 10 mile stretch of Hwy 1. No traffic signals for 50 miles in either direction. No car wash (darn it!). No movie theater. Ecologically friendly. Check it out if you have a chance. Georgia retired from one of her corporate board seats ad ill retire from another next year. I'm struggling with my golf game (No, I mean really strugging! Trying to get below 100 !! My neighbor in Boulder who plays guitar and sings bought me a set of harmonicas. So he and I get together and try to entertain our wives over cocktails periodically. It's a lot of fun (even with my numerous mistakes.) My latest added picture to this site is from a recent vacation to the Carribean. We went as an early birthday present from Georgia. Early, because it's too darn hot there in July.
When you have the time and inclination please drop me a PM and/or add to your updates anything going on in your lives, including weather in your neck of the woods. (Grand Forks has given me a lifelong interest in weather :)
Take care, be safe. God Bless.
