It's been a blast seeing all the updated profiles and pictures, especially those from the 30th reunion. Keep them coming.

I retired from the national bank regulatory business in 2012 in advance of my daughter's entry into kindergarten. Nearly 34 years of fussing with bankers and leading the examiner troops in the north central Texas area was enough for me. My wife continues to work and is looking forward to her retirement in late 2017. She's also a Montana native and grew up on a farm/ranch SW of the Lewistown area, Buffalo to be specific.

I've morphed into something of a Mr. Mom since retiring. Sure, many of you have grandkids, but would you have the energy today to be the parent of a 7 year old? LOL, it can be a challenge at times. I serve on the PTA Board at Madison's grade school, volunteer there, too, and play a lot of golf (170 rounds a year). I'm the self-appointed commissioner and oldest member of the Sunrise Basketball Club, a group of aging basketball players who need to be a minimum of 40 years old. The old body is still holding up, but I'm wary of the future.

So life is good here in the Dallas area, no complaints. The summers are scorching but I can golf virtually year round. I still keep in touch with some of my former DCHS buddies and I'm on Facebook so I can see an occasional picture of buzzhead (Clayton Saur), Joe Marman (no more bathtub shots, Joe…PLEASE), Vicki Mason Entzel, and Vicki Knapp Hughes, my former sister in law, to name a few.

I won't be in attendance at the 40th reunion, but I'll be thinking of those who make the trek to the Dive. Have a great time, take lots of pictures, and get them up on this website. Best regards to each of you.

School Story:

Montana State University, 1978 graduate with BS in Finance and minor in Economics.
