Comments:

I will be celebrating my52nd wedding anniversary .. The last reunion that we went to was the 50th reunion.

I still live in the Boulder area. I am now in Broomfield and I own McDonald Carpet One Floor and Home on Arapahoe in Boulder (across the street from where the Motorina Drive In used to be). My wife and I bought it in 1995 after working at that store since 1978. Lynn has retired and my exit strategy is to have my son and daughter-in-law take it over very soon so I can enjoy the fruits of my labor. They have be working at the store for 10 years, so they are about ready.

Thanks everyone for their hard work on putting this together.

I have retired from my floor store after selling flooring for 50 years. My son Scott and his wife Kelley purchased the store from me and are now the new owners. It was a good transition as they had been working for me since the late 90's.

School Story:

I moved to Boulder in the summer of my junior year from Abilene, Texas so I only had two years to blend into the class of 1964. I became friends with people in both the senior and sophomore classes. I came from a much larger high school in Texas so making friends here was pretty easy but leaving people that I had gone to school with since 1st grade was hard at first.
One of my best friends was in the class of 1963 and I still have contact with him and one of my first girl friends was in the class of 1966. I lost contact

One of my best friends was in the class of 1963 and I still have contact with him and one of my first girl friends was in the class of 1966. I lost contact with her after graduation.

Some of my most memorable moments were playing football (not very well) for Bob Foster and Dan Creese. Also being in the play that year and going on hoot-nanies. Also going to street dances and listening The Astronauts before they made it to the big time. I still have one of their records. I also still think of some of my favorite teachers. Most have passed now but I think I still have the spelling and definition words that Mrs Carlson used to pass out to us.

My senior year I took a drafting class from Mr Huber. I remember I needed a filler class to graduate and I didn't think I would ever need to use this skill. Silly me I have used it everyday for the last 45 years or so. Fortunately I was able to see Mr. Huber before he died and told him that I used his teachings and he was pleased.

I also had contact with Mrs Carlson a couple of times. Once was when I sold her flooring. We were going to install it during the Thanksgiving break. She passed away at her desk at Fairview just before that Thanksgiving. I was grateful to have taken typing from Mrs Bennington as I used that skill in the service.

I would imagine that some of my classmates have had their children graduate from Fairview as my twin daughters did but I have had a granddaughter graduate in the 50th graduating class a few years ago.

I lived next door to Bob Foster, our football coach from 1982 to 1986 and still have contact with Joanne, his wife.

Karl, I just love your sense of humor.
I was sad to see in your bio that you had lost a son. I am sorry to say that my wife and I also lost a son from SIDS.

Happy birthday Jerry. It was great seeing you last weekend. What a great evening. I still can't believe how fast the 50 years went.
