  January 22, 2021 Hello to everyone,   as I sit here I wonder how everyone else is doing. in this stange world we are living in now..  Ed and I are healthy and happy but missing so much the interaction with all our friends. We are living in Moscow, Idaho.  We haave one daughter and son-in-law and two granddaughters here and a son and daughter with spouses and 2 children each in the Seattle area. We have found other interests to do.  I have ytaken up painting barn quilts for fun and Ed has found many projects to do around the house.  We also play a lot of teo handed "hand and foot" card games.  Hope to hear from others.

Greetings fellow Blue Devils!  Sorry I missed our 55th, but of course, I had never updated my contact info.  After reaching my 75th, my Seattle daughters decided Mom needed to move closer to them.  So here I am learning to live with gray skies and a lot of trees—and, honestly loving the vitality and excitement of a big city:  19037 47th Pl NE, Lake Forest Park, WA 98155.  Life is good!

Hello, I am actually the class of 1982... I went to Jefferson Elementary from 1970 to 1974 and I would really like to see pictures from that time please. Is there anyone that has any information on Jefferson Elementary during that timeframe? Or is there anyone that remembers me? Dawn Carmichael

Hi to those that remember me, I left WaHi in 1958, my junior year and joined the Navy. Not the best decision I ever made but, I certainly did learn a lot. Received my GED in the navy about the same time you all were graduating from hig school. Wish I had been there with you all. Presently semi-retired and living in Gilbert, Arizona. Married a girl from Spokane after I got out of the Navy, and we are having our 52nd anniversary this year. Life is good!

I'm looking forward to a great Sept. reunion!  I should like who may visit my new group page on Facebook, "Prophetic Paintings Shared", and read the bottom-most thread.  Since it began, it has taken on a life of it's own.  One of the Nigerian members calls me "mumy".  I envy those of you who have had the chance to travel.  Love to hear about your endeavors!  LilaB2BF

I guess it's about time I checked in. Sorry I didn't make it, but I have never been big on reunions. I don't know why, it's just me. I'm living most of the time in Green Valley Arizona and loving the sunshine and golf. Hope you all had a great time.

And then it is Winter.


You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years.

It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went.

I know that I lived them all...

And I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams... But, here it is...the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise... How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go?

I remember well...seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like...  But, here it friends are retired and getting gray...they move slower and I see an older person now.  Some are in better and some worse shape than me... but, I see the great change...  Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant... but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be.  

Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day!  And taking a nap is not a treat's mandatory!  Cause if I don't on my own free will...I just fall asleep where I sit!

And so, now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!!

But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last...this I know, that when it's over...its over....Yes, I have regrets.  There are things I wish I hadn't done ,,,,,things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done.  It's all in a lifetime....

So, if you're not in your winter yet...let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think.  So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly!  Don't put things off too long!!

Life goes by quickly.  So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not!

You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your, live for good today and

say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember...

and hope that they

appreciate and love you

for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!!

"Life is a gift to you.  The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after.

Make it a fantastic one."




Just the other day I complained to Mary that only three people had posted anything to this website after our Class reunion. 

Mary gave me that little smile I have learned to know that tells "me brace myself here it comes". 

She followed that little smile with "Honey, Let me see what you posted".


Ok, so this is my first post to this website after our reunion.  

That wonderful reunion was the highlight of my summer.  Mary remarked during our week at Ann Ray's she finally understood why I had spoken so often and so fondly of Walla Walla and WaHi.)

The following was sent to my wife Mary from a classsmate of hers.  It kinda fits how Mary and I fell at this age.

We have no idea who or whom the author may have been.

Couldn't attend 50th Reunion. Probably graduated in late '50s. Sang in Men's chorus, announced campus events during Marshall Alexander's last year. Miss him deeply! But you don't mention me. Why not? Friend of Larry Ekstrom, Ray Kronquist.

Nothing like posting at the last moment but we are looking forward to seeing old friends. I'm shocked to say the least about the number of our classmates that are no longer with us.  They will be in our thoughts.  See Ya this weekend.

My hazy memories get brighter each time I read a new bio. Was it really 50 years ago? Who'da thought? So quoting from a children's book called "Double Trouble in Walla Walla" I look forward to a "rootin-tooten" time having some "yak-yak." "Okey-dokey?" See you at our 50th "wing-ding."

Almost good timing but not good enough. I'll be in Walla Walla The weekend of August 1 for a family member's birthday party. Unfortunately for me, I have business commitments in California the week of the reunion.
It's been a lot of fun reacquainting myself with old classmates. Time has clouded my memory a little but, its amazing to me after studying photos of classmates how my memory starts flooding back.
Thanks for giving a California transfer student a good High School experience.

This memory book is addictive . . . I find myself checking it out daily to see who is new! Although it has been 50 years since we were in school together, it saddens me to see how many of our classmates are no longer with us. They remain in memory as 17 and full of hope. Memories: decorating for dances nailing up chicken wire walls and stuffing the holes with kleenex or crepe paper squares. How did we ever pass fire code? "Chop Sticks" and "Blue Moon" played with two fingers on the piano at the Shuffle Shop. Dragging Main St and ending at Chic's Drive In to pick up boys. Great fries at the Spudnut where each table had its own jukebox. Hope to see you August!
