|Children:||Judie and I have been married for 10 years and through this union have accumulated 4 boys. My sons are David and Sam. David is 40 and is married to Rika with one son Austin who is a Junior at Swarthmore University. David is a Senior Design Architect at HOK in Chicago and Rika is Vice President of Interior Architecure at VOA in Chicago. Son Sam is 37 and lives with his partner Ted in St. Crox where they have an art gallery which features Ted's photography and other artists.
Judie's son Kevin is 38 and lives close by in Dana Point and is Vice President of Lee and Associates Commercial Real estate in Newport Beach. Her son Bryan is 35 and maried to Sue...they live in San Francisco. Bryan is Vice President of International Marketing for Wind River in the Bay area and Sue is heading up Marketing for Charles Schuab in SF.
That is it and only one grad child so Judie is pineing away until they hopefully arive.
Animal wise we just lost our beloved Golden Retrever Daphne so hard times around here but Marla the cat is still here to pester us.

|School Story:||Always remember Nick Polos going down to the teachers lounge to have a smoke when he gave out the tests for the class to so we could cheat and he could hear us thru the register in the wall heater...
Also Nick giving us hall passes to go down town and run errands for him...
And the day I was taking him home from school in the old red MG and he thought I was going too fast and turned off the ignition on Indian Hill and threw the keys into the gutter and I just kept on coasting along...the two of us had to walk back a couple of blocks with all the students laughing and find them...
Also the cherry bomb incidents...one over the math classroom and the flood and the other in the boys locker room where pieces of white porcilain went clear to the coache's office...wonder no one was killed...
And of course Adams and the Circus Mobile 55 Buick with the moons and flames one month and scallops the next by Van Dutch...WOW...
Roger P. and his great voice and guitar and his and my consistent side kick Moye S. and his ability to drive a car much faster than it was designed to go...
And the football games and the dances and so much spirit and fun...great group of kids...
Ms. Turner our art instructor and a person who sent many of us on to greater things...
GOOD TIMES AT CHS...
