Murph, Love you Man, and thanks for including me in such a prestigious group. However, as I think I have shared with you before -- I have had no role in the planning and holding of the Reunions for the past fifty years other than saying a few words of welcome. Kay and I drive in, thoroughly enjoy the fellowship, food, and watching some of our more spry classmates on the dance floor, and then drive away for another five years. The local committee and Carl , Becky, and Terry are the work horses.
A fly on the wall reported that one of our classmates hosted an all night party at Pipestem five years ago on Friday night that was out of control. T.V.'s were blaring. a band with drums was playing, and police were called several times.

I wrote him in 2010 to encourage him to come to the reunion, and to send a bio. I got no response. Perhaps he'd react favorably if contacted by closer friends.
Clarify? Did you say CLARIFY?
I swear Mike I don’t know how or why
You’d think such things. Now, my oh my,
I think I’m better off if I
Just let proverbial sleeping dogs lie
And repent in private -- but hardly clarify.
Why just the thought’s enough to terrify
Me, and I sure don’t even care if I
Too am crotchety. So there. Bye-bye.
My dear old classmate Michael Murphy
gives no ground: mountain, plain or surf. He
rejects left-wing cant
and reacts with such rant
that I’ve prayed for him ‘til I’ve got turf knee.
[And I will continue to do so.]
[Fredo, I'll bet you like this one.]
"Only the lonely" will know the feeling if they miss the festivities for next weekend.
I count 7 sleeps.
