Looking forward to winter... so me and some other hoodlums from Skyline can throw snowballs at cars...
"Oh my goodness!!" Some people just never grow up!!"
"Yeah... and some people just can't wait to get old..."

Well, since there's not drag strip in town anymore (RMR got sold to developers) and it's a felony to "drag State" I guess I'm stuck with starting a Chapter of "Street Racers" here in Salt Lake and move the fun to a local, desolate stretch of highway sometime after midnight. Sorry. No drugs or booze allowed.

School Story

Uh... not a lot of "School Spirit" back then...
On Alumni Day, four of us hiked up the mountain to where the giant "S" was and subsequently changed it to an "O." It was a great vantage point from there to look down at the school. It took about 5 minutes before a ton of students came running out into the parking lot to their cars. They looked like ants swarming out of their nest. We patiently watched them race out of the parking lot and hurriedly wind their way up through the adjoining neighborhood. When they were near the base of the mountain, we calmly changed it back to an "S". We then stood and watched them slowly drive back through the neighborhood, back into the school parking lot and when the very last group of them were walking back into the school... we changed it back to an "O" and it started all over again. We watched for a few moments then hastily made our retreat down to the south and into Millcreek Canyon. The next day, the entire Pep Club reportedly marched through Olympus High's halls during school singing the Skyline School Song. Wow,,, talk about an "inside job!"

Well... I'm in trouble now...

"I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing
'Til they got a hold of me.
I opened doors for little old ladies,
I helped the blind to see.
I got no friends 'cause they read the papers.
They can't be seen with me and I'm gettin' real shot down
And I'm feeling mean."

Hey there Diane... First, great reunion! No small effort on your part and so many others. Thanks so much!
Now, I hear rumors there's going to be some kind of "get-together" for 69ers again in five(?) years?
(Probably ought to take a breather for a month or two before even thinking about that, right?)

Hey Maree... I missed you at the picnic. I talked to Howard and Lori at church yesterday and they were surprised (as was I) that you and I went to Skyline and graduated in '69 and never crossed paths. Small world eh?

Hey Janeen... Lotsa memories about you and your sister Christine (and Pam, and Bob). You've certainly had a "diverse" life. Last time I saw you was at the Skyline 40th and before that at the Jordan River Temple. I hope things have settled down now so you can (finally) enjoy life a bit. Hope to see you at the picnic at Sugar house Park.

"State Street in 1969...." "Frankie... '69 Camaro..." Hmmmmmm.... was she a member of the "TFL" Car Club? (TFL: "The Foxy Ladies") I (we) knew a girl named Frankie, had a blue 69 Camaro.
