Some of us are planning on meeting at Summerfest in Milwaukee this coming week. Look for us in the Martini tent on Tuesday the 30th at 4-6 (out on the grounds after that). Also will be down there on the 4th and 5th. We'll be watching for ya'.....

Heard some KC and the Sunshine Band this morning (That's The Way I Like It---hint Shoobie) and it got me to thinking about how we used to go trollin' after the bars which got me to thinking about the time the fire fighters had to come and the one lost his glove and then how we had to go around and make sure there were no open flames (candles) and then how there was an accident with one of those liquid candles and I remember very well what happened after that, but what I don't know is where is Sandy Iwanski---anybody have any information?

Heard from our old friend, renowned backgammon player Mike Mesenbrink (better known as, or dare I say only known as Moby). Says that he is going to try and make it up for the reunion. Maybe he will tell us stories about lips and horns (and other stuff). Perhaps now we'll hear more from the Cedarburg Connection.....I can hear the REO now. Eh, looks like rock and a hard place in the game, though....

Had a chance to meet with Deb, Russ, Shoobie over the past weekend and here is what we decided we are going to do. We are going to post an "itinerary" as to where we plan to be and approximate times so that folks will know where the group is hanging out at a particular time on the 17th and 18th. We are also planning to post a list of names of people we are unable to locate--if there is someone out there you are looking to find, be sure to let us know and we will include them on that list. Finally, right here and now, we are going to list the people we believe that have been contacted about the reunion. This may be through the mail, e-mail or good old word of mouth. If you see somebody on this list you know we hope you would encourage them to join us in Oshkosh in October. Of course, if you see your name we want you to join us as well. Some of the people on this list have told us they are thinking about joining us, others have said they may be in town, while others we have not heard from. What we hope to accomplish with this is to get some more people in the "planning on attending" list. So with no further delay, and in no particular order, here we go..........

Hey! Only 130 days until the reunion---anybody seen Laynor yet????
I want to take a quick moment here to let everyone know about a great event involving one of our former hall mates. Tom Stanton, known to most as Mel, is probably one of the nicest guys I have ever met (if you don't count the Cleveland Browns thing, but they're pretty much harmless anyways). For the past 5 or 6 years Mel has been involved with a local fundraiser in the Cedarburg area known as Mel's Pig Roast. They have done a great job raising money for local charities and such, and more than one person (not Mel) have told me it is a real good time. This years event in on Sunday, Sept 27th from 11-5. Take a couple of minutes and check out the web site at If you're in the area I hope you can make plans to attend. I hope to see you there!

Got an email the other day from Cheryl Sykora--nice to hear from her. Seems that a friend of hers forwarded the blog site to her. This is a wonderful thing. It also brings me to this point. If I find out you know about this site, don't expect to get any personal invites from me. If you know, you know (of course, you never know until you know). So, Sue, Trish, Lisa, Amy and Mary (friends of Cheryl), consider yourselves informed and invited--we look forward to seeing you in October.

As you can see, Cheryl, I told you I had a picture around here somewhere....I'll see if I can track down Cindy--see if we can make it 100 percenter. I also seem to remember something about some Jello shots on a geography field trip, yes?
Saw Larry and Jane this past weekend at the state track meet in La Crosse. Their son had a good race in the 300m hurdles--2nd in D2. Congrats to them--and to us, because Larry says he will be at the reunion. I imagine Jane will be there as well. Rah...

Don't know what got me to thinking about this, but....What do you remember about Nov. 16, 1981?

Of course, the wedding of good old Luke and Laura! And all the memories of Mitch Williams and Roy Deluca, The Campus Disco, Frank Smith, Scott Baldwin, Robert Scorpio and Tiffany Hill, Beecher's Corners (Lloyd and Lucy Johnson), and who can forget the Ice Princess--the Quartermaines and the Cassidines? Ah, the wasted afternoons---now for a little Herb Alpert........
