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.

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.

A belated Happy Birthday. I just read your note about your partner's ALS--what a shock. You stay well and active in all ways!

bob and i sat in the front row in French class, Miss Cross.  We got in big trouble over a test--something about a floating answer sheet.  Abraham Lincoln Parker adjudicated and I ended up a big loser.   Bob survived.

haven't seen or heard of him since.  

Peaxe out, Bob.

Happy birthday once again. Life spirals in an ever widening line and that was my theme on tonight's carving of a piece I'm working to finish.
Many more,
