I just wanted to update people on what I have been able to do since I hobbled in at last years reunion with a cane. At that time I was recovering from a broken hip that I suffered on a bike ride in Wisconsin. I just completed a ride across Iowa (Ragbrai) at the end of July by doing 6 consecutive 100 plus days and a total of 700 miles for the week. In June, I finished the ride Wisconsin that I got hurt on last year by completing 500 miles. I guess all that exercise in Mr. Amo's Phy Ed class paid off.

Carol, it is nice to see you on the class web site. I wish you would reconsider and join us at the reunion.

I am glad you finally signed on to the site. I wish you would respond to the site and say that you will go to the reunion or even join us on the school tour. At either place, we could run into each other and catch-up on old times. We can even share some of our hockey memories or even what we have done in hockey since HS. This is your old friend, Dave Thornton.

Ed, I just noticed that you signed on to the site. I know that it is late to sign up for the reunion, but they are not going to talk to the restaurant until June 4. You may still have time to get on the list. I will be there and it will be great to get together with you. Remember that bike ride we took to Bradford, Pa when we were in 9th grade? Well I did it again, solo, two summers ago. I hope to get in touch with you. Let me know how I can do that. I plan to be in Buffalo for about one week around the reunion.

There is only one more day left Patti, I hope you decide to join us at the reunion. 50 years only comes by once, I do not think we will make the 100th.
