Comments

Moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in January of 1975 and I'm still in awe of the weather, lack of bugs and humidity and so many things to do. Ski in the mountains one day and surf in the ocean the next. We feel truly blessed to love living part of the year in California and part in Hawaii. The wonderful midwest people, especially those in and around Crystal Lake will always hold a warm spot in my heart and Cher and I always look forward to our reunions and one or both of us have enjoyed them for the last 45 years but for many reasons we will miss our 50th. We wish all class members love and a good time, we will be thinking of you.

Our two sons have made Cher and I so very proud, Dan is a very specialized Pediatric Doctor married to Jodi, a very specialized Veterinarian. They gave us our first grandchild, Clara, in June 2013.

Son Ryan works for Amazon Web Services and lives in San Francisco with his very smart and beautiful wife, Anne, who works for a law firm in SF. They met in college, married in 2014 and are now proud parents of Stella Rose Hunt born May 8 2018

School Story

So many great memories! I spent a lot of time over at the Muellers having met Larry and Linda at South School soon after they moved to Crystal Lake from Arlington Heights. Learned to play Monopoly with all the Muellers, played football in our back yards, rode our bikes (I had a Schwinn Corvette, muthafucka!) everywhere, went to the "show" often and I'll never forget spending $1.19 on the 1959 Chicago White Sox color glossy picture of that Pennant winning team at Woolworth's.

When we got older I often double dated with both Larry and Linda and I'll never forget one funny incident. Larry was going out with a hot new Italian girl at school, Maria, who didn't speak real good english and understood less. Once after a show the four of us got into the car and Larry turned to Maria and said "I need the antenna to start the car so please get it out of your purse" Maria kept looking, it seemed like a painfully long time for something she had no idea of, just kept searching and searching.

I'll also never forget Mr. Mueller towing us behind their Toronado on a toboggan in winter with a rope way too short attached to the bumper and going down Broadway!

Finally, I remember the many times we double dated and went to the drive ins. If Crystal Drive In didn't have our favorite movie we would have no problem going to Dundale and almost always had a cold case of malt liquor inside the trunk often with the second couple in there keeping watch. That's 6 six packs so each guy would get 2 six packs plus whatever our dates didn't drink. We threw the cans out the window around our car and often got the other couple out of the trunk before it got dark. Never got in an accident coming home from the drive ins and that's what makes me believe He had plans for us.

Happy Birthday and many returns to our wonderful President who has continued to be a wonderful person in so many ways. Harry you have a lot of work in front of you to acknowledge all those who wished you well and you deserve all of it! I may have partied with Kenny but I voted for you for President! Look forward to our next telecom with Cubans in hand! HB Old Buddy! I have nearly 5 months before I turn 70.

Brenna you look better than ever, amazing how some like you look better with age. A former customer and golfing buddy, Norm Towson is from the family that named their city in MD and the college. Cher and I enjoy our two new Grand Daughters from son Ryan and daughter Anne who recently moved into their house in the Outer Sunset district in SF. Stella is nearly 2 and already acting like it and Heidi Hunt nearly 4 months is bouncing around in her Johnny Jump Up. All 4 are happy and healthy. Thank goodness for FaceTime but can't wait for real hugs and kisses. Can't wait to see you when you get even older. Please let us know if you're ever near our homes in San Jose or Kauai and have time to get together. All the Best, Jim

Mr. Eeeps you might remember I bought the album Billion Dollar Babies by Alice Cooper when we lived together in Albuquerque, well I met and spoke with Alice for quite a while when our eldest son graduated from Michigan State at the Detroit Intl Airport. He is quite a cool dude, very down to earth and was a 4 handicapper back in the day.

13 grandchildren is quite a bunch considering you were shooting blanks! All the Best!

Was just telling Ken Ormsby today about how you told me about the open position on the B&B dept at the C&NW RR working for Hank Tapaninen. Thanks again George, that was the best summer job I had before finishing college. No doubt you're fishing today. Shit man if not already you'll soon be sprouting gills! HB, Kingfish

124 Spider has been bored to 2000 cc, with electronic ignition, custom fans, headers and 4 carbs, all of which are larger than the one original.
