Comments:

What a long strange trip it's been! Off and on college. Military career. Being a father (Emily is my pride and joy, and main worry bead). Second career as an engineer (building and launching rockets for the Missile Defense Agency). And through it all traveling the globe. Probably wouldn’t change any of it, but man do I miss Anderson Township and Cincinnati!

School Story:

What I remember the most!

Late night trips to skyline chili with the buds.
The music - for purveyors of rock - we had it all.
First loves.
Animals in the court yard last day of school.
Oil embargo / splitting school days with Turpin to save energy.
All the home games!
Powder puff mayhem.
Homecoming float parties (remember the first one? Think it was at Brian Oberslates house/farm by what is now Turpin).
Skipping school on opportune Fridays and handing in forged notes from Derek's mother (ala welcome back kotter).
Paranoid pictures taken of the smoking area from the office (it was said earlier - what were we thinking?!).
The cookies and grilled cheese in the cafeteria.
What a great time I had in high school!
