School Story:

Dave Billings was making strawberry ice cream at the Benewah Dairy at 30th and Grand. He invited Bill Herrington and I and other buddies up for a massive free taste test at the owner's expense. Nobody found out.

What have you been doing the last 10 years?

I'm a full time studio artist in wood. Predominantly lathe-based, my work imcludes sculptures, plates, platters, boxes, vases. I'm currently doing collaborations with a dozen other artists. The unifying factor is that they do their work on my wood. We have painters, ceramists, raku clay, a glass artist, a fabric person, a metals guy, and a mixed media maven each working in conjunction with me. It all comes together in a travelling show i've presented at galleries for WSU, Wenatchee, Ellensburg, Yakima, and tri-cities.

How do you spend your time now?

I'm in the studio by 8AM and usually work until 1-2AM. I thought when i retired that i would watch the mariners and learn the nes of 5 players and the manager. It didn't happen. I was made to work and I do what I like.
I have a massive garden and work in the master gardener program in Yakima and I live in a great old place that used to be a TB san.

Happy Birthday again. Hope all is well. I’m here in Yakima still and the sun still shines. Yesterday was a good day at ArtFest 2018 and I was there doing my best to turn folks on to my latest and best. This one is 30x8” and the lid is festooned with ‘runes’ from Harry Potter.

Happy Birthday. I’m just north of Spirit Lake overseeing a logging op. It sprinkled a bit on my tent last night, so it’s nice and cool and damp this morning as I review the work of the day with the guys who run the big machines. I hope your life is cheery and sweet and full.

Cande was a friend even though she was a W and I was a B, so our homerooms were miles apart.  Fortunately, I never played tennis with her or I would have given up a lot earlier.  My sweet memories of her will remain tender and watm as time rolls on and other memories fade.  Rest in peace, Cande.  Jsbarany

RIP, Dick and my condolences especially to Tammy Tuttle Binns:  I just got a note from the LC class site that Dick Binns died.  My first memory of him was in the 3rd grade playground at Wilson school in Spokane.  Dick was by far the fastest runner in the class.  He played A t"A" team football in the 5th grade when the rest of the players wee 8th graders.  Always cheerful, quiet, gentle.  John barany

Happy Birthday. Hope all well. I'm wondering if you've kept a hand in the architecture community of Spokane after 'retiring'? The only doctor connection I've maintained here is with a coffe klatch at the Starbucks in Rosauer's on 56tt. 15 or so of us duffers meet at 10:30 on Tuesdays for an hour. I can stand it only a few times a year because talk tends to be about old times and grandkids. A bit tedious.
So, here's what I do and what I'm doing:
Good health to you this yr,

Hi Lynne. Hope to visit w you at the reunion. I remember the surprise I got when I saw you last--it was at a reunion and I probably didn't recognize you until I heard your name. But now when I see your pic, memory serves me well and I can see you clearly at age 18.
