To my classmates of Sequoia ('59):  it's been an interesting ride since we parted in June of 1959.  From June to late December of 1960 I was a cabinet maker apprentice, a carpenter apprentice, and a laborer on an underground pepe laying crew.  (I didn't know what to do when I grew up!)  In December of 1960, I joined the USAF and spent four years, primarily at Edwards AFB in the Mojave Desert of California.  It was an exciting time in aviation and in space research.  I was in the middle of it!  In Dec. of 1964 I came home to be a mountain man working for PG&E in the mountains and hills around Clear Lake.  I ran a chain saw and burned brush and tended bar at night.  Then my mother was diagnosed with a hernia so I quit the mountains and returned home to Redwood City to be with her (no more mountain!).  I worked at the pipe laying job again until 1966 and then did a stint with Lockheed as an engineer without a degree.  Three years with Lockheed until I got caught in a layoff.  During that time I met my bride (Blanche) and got married in 1967.  Now my ride really began!
     We've been married a little over forty years and I keep telling her how lucky she is.  We have one son, Robert who is 34 years old now.  Rob works a graveyard shift, lives at home and likes it that way, plus we enjoy having him.  When Rob was young he joined the 4H program, so our whole family got into the 4H program.  I was the Dog Care and Training leader for Homesteaders 4H in Santa Clara for twenty two years and loved almost every minute of it.  In the twenty two years kids under my direction won the State Fair dog show fourteen times, they include five veterinarians, a lawyer, a librarian, a computer engineer, nurses, a hopeful play writer, and teachers, these are the kids who have kept in touch with us (our extended family) and am I ever proud of them!
     I retired from pipe laying as a foreman in 2001 and from the 4H Dog Care and Training in 2004.  At present we are doing some traveling and I am working with my music collection.  Blanche bought me an I-pod (what a mistake!).  I have been collecting music ever since, mostly country, but have branched out to cover a lot of areas.  You'll hear some of the late 1950s songs at the reunion, I hope.  Currently there are over 11,200 songs in my collection and it is still growing.
     I really hope to see and converse with each and every one of you at the reunion.

UofC, Irvine Married
I'd love to come to the reunion, but I'm not sure it will be possible.  I'm one of those people who has no interest in retirement and am still teaching at the University of California at Irvine, evolutionary and conservation biology during the normal school year and writing for engineers and computer science majors in the summer.  And when I have three months off in April, May and June, I'm usually somewhere in Southeast Asia or India, traveling light and looking for material for essays and short stories.  I travel anywhere I can get to in Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Thailand, Burma, the Philippines.   For many years I traveled all through Latin America, and especially the northern Andes where I did my Ph.D. (in Colombia on peasant markets). Have spent a good bit of time in Brazil, and in Cuba, until I had small problems with the repressive government.  In all marvelous times and adventures, but at some cost through the years--amoebic dysentery, dengue fever, and more recently TB.  So, travel and all that comes with it in exotic places--what I enjoy most and continue doing for as long as possible. Have been married for more than 30 years to the same woman, an evolutionary biologist and professor, and I have a son who is eighteen and a freshman at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
