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.

I’m still full-timing it as a wood artist. This pic is a bowl made from an unwanted sycamore.

Happy Birthday a week early, Barb. It got cold again last night in Yakima, breezy, and it’s 55 degrees in the house. Brrrr. I have to start work on 4 sets of utensils today to complement sycamore bowls in progress. A good day to work inside. Hope you’re well. jbar

Happy Christmasy Birthday, Mary Carole. I remember when Mike moved into the new family house and he went to Wilson grade school. I think it was 7th grade. And he and fam went to Hawaii for Christmas Holiday. He was soooo dark and handsome big and brawny and had oodles of self-confidence and Hawaii stories. Such a standout guy.
I was so envious.
Hope all’s well,

Joyce, I remember Mr. Wickline, our homeroom teacher. I didn’t much like or dislike him at the time, but his memory has grown on me over the years. I’d like some way of contacting him and Mrs. Wickline (she taught me Hamlet) to thank them.
Hope you’re well.

Happy Birthday, Pam. I wasn’t invited to Coeur d’Alene Lake last summer so I didn’t get to see your castle. Sad. Hope you’re well.
