Slow to get going on this...  We have been traveling (Just got back from Sarasota, in fact) and I have forever put off digging out photos from old, dusty boxes.  So, short of old ones, here are some recent ones in addition to my SHS annual photo: Then; now; the family (wife Barbara, son Brian, daughter Jenna) being a little silly; Barbara and I at MachuPicchu; me playing a guitar I had had built for me in Paracho, México; me passing a bunch of younger riders ( :-) ) in a mountain bike race; and Barbara and I in our plane over New Mexico.  This is probably way too many pictures from a guy who mostly kept to himself during HS, but you can use what you want.  And thanks for all the work you are putting into this!

Barbara and I were both headed for California when we met on the beach on Siesta Key.  We are living in Idyllwild in the mountains of southern CA, where we have been for 24 yrs., and have now been married for 42 yrs.  We have two children who are doing well, but no grandchildren as yet.  After college (psychology and education) I had a career in special education as a teacher and then director of a residential treatment program, Barbara was a primary level and gifted-and-talented teacher, and we both retired in 2007.  Since then we have traveled, sometimes in our own plane, and done other things too long put off.  I am a classical guitar "junkie", both playing and building them.  And, while I was very un-athletic during HS, I have been running, biking, mountaineering, and generally finding ways to "play" in the outdoors since about age 34 and I'm going to keep it up as long as I can!  We hope to make it to the reunion in October!
