    I know we will not forget those who did not come home. May they all rest in peace. Lawrence Detwiler, Phoenixville, PA August 22, 1969. A day I will remember until the end.

    The Cascades only grow on the west side. There isn’t enough rain on the east side to grow weeds.

    Bill, here in Washington watering is not a problem. Seeing them through the clouds IS the problem! Mt ST Helens definitely shrunk a few years back but it is trying to grow back.

  5. Bill Beckum says

    If you water the mountains do they grow?

    I’ll throw Seattle into the ring. I know it’s a long trip for folks, but august,september are good months for weather and there’s lots to see and do. Good salmon fishing for one and places to go, moutains to water. Think about it.

    We did not discuss a reunion for 2015 at the recent reunion. Does anyone want to host a reunion in 2015? Tom Scanlon is considering hosting one in the Twin Cities. I would love to have a choice on reunion hosts, but we usually are lucky to get someone to host a reunion.

    Ted VanAulen showed interest in hosting a 2016 reunion in FL, but said it is so hot there that it might have to be early 2017 to have the reunion.

    Anyone with interest in hosting a reunion contact me or post on this site.

    I know that the latest reunion just finished, but does anyone know where and when the next one is?
    I really want to attend one, but, unfortunately, I still work, and if I know far enough in advance, I can plan for it.

    Carl, hope Linda is mending well!
    Larry, back in Creede?
    Gary and Theresa, sorry I didn’t get to see you on Sunday before I left.
    Terry, hope you are feeling better!

      LT, Linda is doing well. There is very little pain and she can put 50% weight on it now. She is walking with a walker and also with a cane briefly when we have to go out down the steps. She has an appointment with the doctor on Monday. Her right ankle, which was sprained, still looks really bad but she can walk on it fine. She is wearing a brace on that ankle. Thanks for asking and I will post what the doctor says or does on Monday.

    • Larry says

      Yes, we are back in Creede, CO. It is raining every day here, wished I could get this on my ole drought stricken farm in southeast Colorado.

      Great reunion! We did not discuss a 2015 reunion. Any ideas?

  10. Terry Roberts says

    Cap, I agree. Youcan’t believe everything put out on the internet.

    Carl-PRAYING for a speedy recovery for Linda…sry I wasn’t able to attend this time…//Cap if I thought that I was putting crap on here I wouldn’t post–the story was on msn/nightly news/yahoo..

  12. Bill Beckum says

    My wishes for a speedy recovery for Linda. They were not her fan club but her “groupies” !

    • Carl Fryman says

      Hey Bill, My wife liked that!!!

  13. Carl Fryman says

    Linda and I had a great time at the reunion. We met some wonderful people and enjoyed ourselves. Just a brief update on Linda. As you may know she broke her ankle when we went up to Munising for the boat tour. We drove home on Sunday, saw the doctor on Monday, and had surgery yesterday. Her ankle was dislocated and broke in three places. They placed a plate and screws in her ankle and also removed some slivers of bone also. She will start walking on it some tomorrow. She hasn’t had very much pain. Thanks to all who asked about her and were concerned about her well being. (She referred to you all as her fan club!) A special thanks to Ron and Martha Causey who stayed with us the whole six hours that we were over there and brought us back to the hotel safely. Thanks Ron and Martha. We hope to attend the one being planned in Tampa. It’s nice to put faces to some names I see on here. For those who didn’t attend or couldn’t attend hope to meet you at the next one.
