Comments:

Retired after successful career as an accountant (specialty was forensic accounting), owned a computer sales and service company, MicroTouch, and Utahweb, an Internet service provider. I was in an auto/motorcycle accident in 1990 (yeah, I was the idiot on the motorcycle) and after 43 surgeries I am like the bionic man but without the energy.

The TSA have got tired of how long it takes me to go through the airport scanner.

School Story:

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City and attended Emerson Elementary, and then we moved to Malad Idaho when I was in the 6th grade. We moved back to Salt Lake after the 9th grade. I was supposed to go to East High but I wanted to go to South. My father, older sisters and a brother had gone to South and thats where I wanted to be. Jim Smith took me under his wing when he learned I was from Malad (thats where his grandmother lived) and I was blessed to find so many wonderful friends at South. It was as if I had finally got back home. I think the two years at South were the best in my life.

I enjoyed being in the school play and absolutely loved the entire South High experience.

At the end of our senior year, a few of us, yeah Jodie was there too, wanted to see the city lights from the Murray smoke stack. A couple guys got on the ladder before I did, but when I found a hole in the stair guard, I climbed through it and I got on top first. Cops showed up and rounded up all of the groupies. The couple of us that got to the top laid low until everyone else left and then we climbed down. We had such an "Illusion of Invincibility" when we were young. Mostly, we were just damn lucky to have survived our youth.

Hi Jim, Happy Birthday. If anyone gives you a weekend nickel, keep it, with today's inflation it will have to be more valuable than the other stuff they call money.

Hi Diane, so another Birthday caught up with you. Personally I think birthdays are a conspiracy and we are just getting an update or upgrade. Well whichever it is for you I hope it works better than all the other snake oil ideas.
Happy Birthday

Hi Char, I believe that you had a query about our long lost leader Reginald Hawkins. I asked a friend of mine who is retired law enforcement and a cub from another year if he knew what became of Reginald and he indicated that while in law enforcement they had traced him to Colorado but on the wrong side of a jail door. I wasn't really sure that a as true and I did a deeper search on the Internet and I think he is or was an attorney in Colorado. Someone at our last reunion mentioned that Reginald didn't have very many fond memories of Salt Lake and had no plans of ever coming back. I don't know if there is any truth in what I'm reporting. Thanks for bringing your husband over to my table, it was nice to meet him and to see you again.

Hi Vickie, I'm quite sure you don't remember me from South. I had a serious crush on 3 young ladies while at South and because I was terribly insecure you and the other two didn't know I even existed.

Jeff, I know that I'm not the only one saying so, because we talk behind your back, but your contributions to our class with the pics and videos are outstanding and the support you offered to sooo many when we transitioned officially into seniors, puts you over the top. Personally I'm very grateful for your yearly assist to me, Rose, and her brother Ron. You should have been named "Charlie Brown", because your a good man. Thank you Jeff.
