Clark, I wouldn't be raising kids in this day and age for all the money in the world, but I'm happy that my grands are enjoying the good life in rural communities. Economics hurt us, too, but we're close enough to larger cities for the extras like malls, theaters, etc. As long as Tyson Foods and four other major industries stay open, this small town will survive. People from a 40 mile radius drive in daily to work here, too. But, I don't know if we'll survive the Razorback season if things keep going like the past two games have. LOL.

Message: My grandfather died when I was a senior (64) . I drove his car until I got drafted. My dad sold it while I was in the Army. We never got along too good. He also threw away my baseball cards, some from the 50's. It seems to me that guys of our generation fall in love with our first cars. This one is actually a nicer version of my grandfathers car. I got it from a widow in Ohio. I know it's not collectible, or a classic, but I love it.
Hey Tom, Great looking Olds man. I know what you mean about first cars. I had a couple I'd love to have back. In my opinion it is a collectible and a classic too. Thanks for the picture.

Message: Jim Ward, who recently passed away, was a buddy of mine growing up. On of the high points of our 50 year reunion was reconnecting with him. He, J. B. Schroeder and and I sat up past 2 a.m. talking one evening. I hadn't seen him in the previous 50 years. The Rae Lakes loop in King's Canyon was special to all of us. The 8mm films were (as far as I know) were last in the possession of the Ritchies. I really hope they still exist. Jim's father, Bill, was one of the adults on that trip. Our first camping spot was Paradise Meadows. I had washed my boot socks in the river and was hanging them over a branch when someone said 'Glenn there's a snake.' I jumped straight back and it started to rattle. The meadow was alive with mice, hence snake heaven. The snake was dispatched with an axe. That night, a horrifying scream came. Flashlights aimed that direction, Bill emerged from his sleeping bag, post haste, and shaked it out. It was a mouse that had been crawling around at his feet. I hiked the Sierra for years, but that trip is etched in my memory as the finest.
Great story Glenn, thanks man.

They lived at 5541 W 123rd Place just off of Aviation in Del Aire. Craig graduated in 1965 and at the last contact I had with him, he was living in Colorado. He passed away shortly after that, I understand. I believe his brothers are still living. Mike holds heritage track and cross country records at HHS.
