EMAIL FROM CHARLIE SMITH ('59) vacationing in France: Hi Folks -
I've put a few pictures together on a web page: I'm sure I'll take more and will add them to this as time goes by.
These are mostly just the neighborhood where I'm staying. I'm not doing a huge list of things, I just enjoy being here and absorbing the atmosphere. I have a double room in downtown Paris, in a residential area, that includes cooking facilities for 52 Euro / night. Last weekend an English friend flew to Paris, with his German lady friend, Agnes, to spend a couple days running around together. Here's some pictures that Nick took and put on the web, many are inside a museum.
It's mostly been in the middle 50's and sunny, with a couple days being an exception. Today was down around 40F and had the local people saying they thought it was the first sign of winter! Ha! I've got a local phone number in my cell phone while I'm here, it's easy and inexpensive to set this up.
Charlie Smith firstname.lastname@example.org +33 6 5097 7531 http://www.elektro.com/charlie/ Columbus Ohio USA
When dialing the above French number from the US, dial 011 33 6 5097 7531 and please remember I am 6 hours ahead of US EST, or 9 hours ahead of PST.

UPDATE FROM AUBREY WHITE ('60)
Dave, my old e mail is still good but I prefer to begin using my alumni
email which is a lifetime e mail from the University of Texas at Austin. It is email@example.com.
Also attaching a picture of Shirley and I which was taken this past June in
Scotland- the Highlands. A beautiful country. And we certainly lucked out on
the weather. We are trying to travel alot more, primarily with the
University of Texas "Flying Longhorns," our alumni group which
travels all over the world. We have scheduled two trips for next year. One
to Hawaii to visit with our niece and then with the Flying Longhorns to
Provence and the French Riviera. Depends on my work load and I am getting
some new startup programs. One of these relates to the Military Child and
providing an enhanced infrastructure and virtual environment to address
issues that the military child faces by transfer of the parent(s) and
assignment of parent(s) to combat and non combat zones. I never realized all
the issues and I thought I knew them as a former military brat and Father of
a military brat. We will collaborate and then partner with the Military
Child Education Coalition , non profit organization, which is attempting to
develop an enhanced capability for linking counselors, students, parents,
communities worldwide in support of the military child.
Take care and my best to all,

|19 Oct 2006||WHAT OUR TEACHERS ARE UP TO: On October 13, 2006, a group of teachers from Orleans, France gathered for their annual luncheon at La Petite Auberge in New York City for the 43rd time. This tradition was started in 1963. Sometimes there are a good number of them; other times not. Some have made it to all 43 luncheons; others have not. Sometimes, former students will join them. This year, Dave Thatcher ('62), Jim D'Amato ('62) and his wife, Margi, Margaret Shea ('65), and Cynthia Crumlish ('67) were the students in attendance. Of the teachers that were there, I knew only Norm Chula and his wife, Doris Reid, and my JV basketball coach, Richard Clark. Coach Clark is one of those who's made it to all 43 luncheons. The rest of the teachers were mostly from the elementary school, or were JHS and HS teachers after my time there. All total there were 20 former Orleanites dining on either fish, veal or chicken. Nice lunch and nice company. The photos below show everyone who was there.|
|19 Oct 2006||
MARRIED: JOHN KOHN ('62) and the former Robyn Rinkin of Auckland, New
Zealand were married on October 1, 2006, in Brisbane, Australia. This
is the first time that John has tied the knot. Upon returning to the
USA a few days ago, John and Robyn had this to say about it all ----
Just back from Australia with my new wife. Yep - got married sooner than expected.
Her name is Robyn and she is a real wild child. Guess that's what attracted me to her. We met while she was on vacation here in Vegas two years ago. I just happened to be walking through The New York New York casino (I rarely go down to the strip) and she stopped me to ask directions. When I told her how to get there, she asked me if I could show her instead. Can't even remember where she was going because we never got there. Had lunch instead and spent the rest of the day together.
Anyway, I mentioned the funeral for a close friend I went to in my last letter to you. Robyn met me at the airport and on the way to her place we decided to get married while I was there. After the funeral we spent time just driving around in her classic 1936 Packard V12. It has been in her family since it was 2 years old. Her grandfather bought it in Los Angeles and had it shipped to Australia. As she is an only child, it eventually found its way to her. What a magnificent automobile it is!!!!!
So we got married and spent the rest of the time there fooling around, playing golf and sailing. Need I tell you that she kicked my ass in golf (damn, she's good) and taught me how to sail, though I still have a long way to go.
On our way home we stopped in Auckland, New Zealand to visit some friends (she is really a transplanted Kiwi) and spent a couple of days there, sailing again.
We will be back here in Vegas for a month or so and then move back to Brisbane where she will go back to work at her main store. Robyn has 4 jewelry stores in Brisbane and she told me I would have to put up with that for at least another 5 years. So I guess I'm going to learn a little about the jewelry business.
So while we are here I guess Robyn is going to get her fill of the opportunities afforded by the casinos and see a couple of shows. While she is doing that, I'm going to be packing and getting ready to go.
Robyn wants to say "Hi" so I'll turn this over to her while I fix breakfast.
Just wanted to say that I'm really pleased to "meet" you and hope that John and I will be able to make the next reunion. We will keep the same e-mail address so there will be no problem staying in touch. I look forward to meeting all of John's classmates so you can tell me what John was really like back then. He has told me a little of his days in Orleans and I want to see if he is telling me the truth or not (just kidding). I'll say this for him, he has kept himself in marvelous shape since those days. He doesn't look that much different (body wise) than the photos I have seen of him from waaaay back then.
I was surprised when we went to the funeral as it turned out to be Steve Irwin's. John had shot some of Steve's programs and was apparently a good friend of his. How sad that was.
You know, John and I never married before this. I guess we were both too wrapped up in our careers to have time for someone in our lives on a fulltime basis. At our ages now, we both thought it was time to think of something besides career and working all day, every day. We found each other and are going to make very sure that we never lose what we have found.
Well, guess I better close this up and go help John get breakfast done, that's something we both enjoy doing and John is a very, very good cook.
Take care and rest assured that I'll take good care of John in the future.
John & Robyn Kohn (Newlyweds)
(Editor's note: According to Robyn, John is a rather private person, and loathe to talk about himself. Hence, all of the above is posted at her insistence and under extreme duress for poor old John. So, gang, it's payback time. Robyn wants to know what John was like in school, and it's our duty to tell her. Have we figured out who's gonna wear the pants in this family?)

LAST UPDATE ON ARTIE SHAW '60 for today -- Upon asking Artie why he chose to
move to Illinois, his interesting reply was as follows --
Illinois? Why? I lived in Illinois when I worked for IBM as a
Data Processing rep in the late sixties/early seventies. I retired in
Texas in '97 and moved to New Mexico, then Arizona,
"double-dipping" the whole way.
|12 Oct 2006||
THIS YA GOTTA READ --- I jokingly asked ARTIE SHAW if the new TV show,
"Friday Night Lights" was patterned after his coaching days in
Texas, and his response is below:
Actually, the whole thing is patterned after Permian High School in
Odessa (they are also the Panthers with that same stylized
"P" for a logo). We were in the next district over, so we
did get thrashed by them early in the season most years and usually ended
our season when we won district and bi-district -- which was frequently
-- with a loss to them in the second round of the playoffs. We never
beat Permian, but we did beat several of the other schools in the district,
which at one time was called, "The Little Southwest Conference."
That's a reference to the old Southwest Conference which Texas, Arkansas,
Rice, Tech, SMU, A&M, TCU, Baylor, etc, and was such a college power
until the middle seventies.

MESSAGE FROM ABEL WHITE ('61): Prior to the reunion, Abel sent me a
photo of himself on a sailboat. I asked if that was his, and was he a
sailor also. This was his reply --
Glad you asked,..... The rest of the story.... My VN Army buddy actually owns it...and I do love the sea and going out. We plan to go to the outer banks from wilmington nc down to florida in october or november, once this next rotation is complete between 4ID and 1CD. He saved my bacon in VN as a aviator and I was a FO and tunnel rat. We have remained friends since that time and attaching a picture of me and Mike. We both enjoy getting out with the family or just on our own.. Unfortunately he now has cancer and was not supposed to survive beyond 6 months but its two years now and he is doing great.
|12 Oct 2006||
MESSAGE FROM ABEL WHITE ('61): This was another pre-reunion communique
I will not be making the reunion, but will have OHS people in my prayers, and know you will have a fun reunion. Please tell Mr. Craig Himes hello for me. He had quite an influence on me and the direction I took in life. Anyway, I have a responsibility for certification of the software baselines going into 11 separate computer systems. These go into the 1st Cav Division etc... and it all has to be burned on to hard drives (3000+) by 15 September 06. We seem to have some last minutes patches coming in to enhance the systems ability to support tactical operations in MOUT. It is great to be able to support our troops, and the technology available today is unbelievable. Robotics is also taking an important place in the way we do business in the theatre.
I know Aubrey will not make it. He has a host of things to accomplish at the University of Texas and plans to attend the football game.
In case you don't know, Aubrey will have nothing to do with horses. He likes my ranch for its country atmosphere and all. I was able to get him on a horse one time. I doubt that he will ever get on one again. Anyway, with a little computer assistance, am attaching a picture, hope he doesn't shoot me over it. By the way, the experienced rider does not hold those reigns so far apart, hint as to which one is me.
I will make the next reunion.
I was not studious at OHS, but thanks to Ms. Schmiedeler and teachers like Mr. Himes changed my focus on academics. Had to take remedial classes in english, math but eventually, after five years graduated from St. Mary's U in Texas and later some graduate degress and education, business and military history.

UPDATE ON PAT PETRUSKA McKinney ('60): Pat had just provided me with
the whereabouts on her sister-in-law, Ann Kiser ('62), and I asked her what
she (Pat) was doing with herself these days. With her permission, this
is her reply ---
I am retired (still), but am busier than a one-armed paper hanger. I’m
keeping company with a very nice man … John and I have known each other
for 20+ years. He and his wife
Margaret and my Bob and I were in the same Marriage Encounter sharing group.
Margaret died 7 months before
my Bob and we had John for dinner several times a week after Margaret
passed. Well, John decided to
‘help me through’ the worst of it by going out to dinner and generally
being there to talk and listen. We
decided life was too short to waste on being alone so we now share his
house. He has 2 married sons
and I have 2 married sons and one daughter, as well as 9 grandchildren. His
first grandchild is due April 2007 so he has been a ‘grandpa in
training’ with mine. Our
children get along well with each other and are very happy for us.
My sons especially feel like it is the best thing to happen for me. So
life can be good again.
can’t ever remarry because I would loose my military retirement benefits,
so my family and his family are all OK with it.
I keep busy with stuff around here (as does John) and we routinely
take days off (we’re both retired) and go fishing or whatever. The
days fill up before we know it. We’re
planning a fishing trip next Saturday to

UPDATE ON LARRY SANFORD ('61): Larry said he couldn't make the
Roanoke reunion, because he was teaching a motorcycle course that
weekend. I asked him to provide me a little blurb on that for the
class news page, and here's what he had to say.....
As far as a blurb goes, my interest in motorcycling goes all the way back to our days in Orleans. Only there it was a 50 cc Peugeot moped. Essentially, I rode a motorcycle in college and during some of my various military assignments (when I was stationed long enough to get one, and it made sense). After I retired from the Army in '91, my wife suggested that I needed a hobby. At the time, I owned a Honda CB 750, and regularly used to take various motorcycle rider-training classes, here in Northern VA, at NVCC. In 1992, one of the instructors I had recognized me from previous classes I took and asked me why instead of just taking classes that didn't become a Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) instructor and teach them-so I did in 1993. Since then I've taught pretty much all throughout the northern part of the state.
Currently, I'm the site coordinator for the MSF rider-training program at Lord Fairfax Community College in Middletown, VA-right where I-81 and I-66 meet. I teach out there every couple of weekends for the nine months we have classes. I have 22 other instructors, 17 motorcycles, and more associated equipment than I know what to do with. We typically run thru 750 students a year, and it's about a $100K a year business for the college. I mainly do it to keep up my own riding skills (we're not spring chickens anymore), but also to make sure that novice riders start out with the basic physical and mental skills they need to become safe, responsible, riders. // LARRY

I hope this gets to you before you go up to the reunion.
I won't be able to come, and won't be working in DC (for the moment.) suddenly things sort of turned around and I was innundated by work, and it's best to stick close to home. But I don't know if you'll have an "announcements" or anything like that. But if you do, here's my news.
My book will be published in october. Now, I call it Off the Record, but I believe my publisher has latched onto (the awfullest title) But Seriously. anyway, it's a book about the irreverant look at life in court, which expanded to just a bunch of funny (so she thinks, and I hope) essays. She has high hopes for the book, and I'm afraid to dream much larger than the five free ones I will get, which I think will be read because they will go to my family members ...
I was tearing up a bit today that I can't go, and wrote the following poem, and I'll attach for you a copy of two of my poems, Gladsome Reunion and Princess Papula's Royal Decree (I'm not principally a poet, but include some in the book) about my recent trip to Ireland. anyway, that's the news fit to print.
I'm attaching also a picture of Charleville castle, owned by a friend of mine in Ireland. he rents out the place for big bashes, so why not do a reunion there? we could get busses and tour Ireland, as well as do the dance at the castle ... and ... I could go ...
so, here's the ramblings of a mad woman: if you think it has any merit you can print it up for the group, or have someone read it, (or found file it, as it were.)
love you, and all of you ...

Hi Dave...Sorry that I will not make it to the reunion. I've made it a point to return to Orleans numerous times over the last 10 years or so. I still have wonderful memories that stay with me. My wife and I returning to Orleans this coming May and will continue to take the many photos and videos I've accumulated over the years. My track record on my returns have been good so far: was escorted through La Foret by the French military on one occasion but not allowed to take photos, escorted through Harbord Barracks on another occasion (talked myself onto what is now a French military base), went through Maison Fort, did the Coligny Kaserne tour and got pictures of most of what was left before the refurbishment of many of the buildings, visited Olivet, La Ruelle and St. Jean DeBraye, the old elementary school at La Chapelle (that was difficult to find!), as well as the school in Maison Fort before La Foret and of course the hospital in La Chapelle. I lived in Orleans from 1957 to 1967 and will always be a big part of my life. Thanks for doing everything you've done to keep the memories intact. You have done a great thing keeping this going.

MESSAGE FROM VALERIE FECTEAU Rousey ('68):
Hi Dave and friends,
In 1964 I fell in love for life:France, Orleans, Pam Canese and family, Ron Rousey and family...not necessarily in that order.
My life's location was being played out in a town that honored one of my name sakes, Jeanne d'Arc. Being of French Canadian decent, I carry the name Valerie Jeanne ( Joan in English ) . Being Roman Catholic and of the same age as Jeanne was when God called her to greatness, I felt a special tie to the city to honor her each year. Orleans was a part of the fabric I was made of before ever stepping foot upon her soil.
The adventure began on a modified troop carrier that had been renamed the Rose. I am from a family of five. Rooms on the Rose were made for even numbers. Pam is from a family of three. On board Pam and I were bunked together. We are forever friends. The Canese family would shape our lives in ways we could never have dreamed. They were to become the dearest friends of my family. My dad retired in the city near Pam's dad. Our friendship endures to this day. Our parents traveled the world together. Margaret and Pierre became my second parents and my parents closest and dearest life friends.
In my sophomore year, about mid way, my soul way stirred. A tall skinny drink of water with a knack for basketball, Ron was and is the love of my life. It is wonderful to be loved for who you are. Ronnie and I have been blessed that way. We see the faults of each other and love anyway.
We dated for what seemed most of our life during our teens and very early twenties. We were separated for a bit of that time. As Orleans was relocated, Ron's dad was assigned to Italy. We came to Florida. But we both came to Florida when choosing colleges. Those of you that know us, you know I keep walking around that elephant in the story. I had been sick. In the time before my Junior year, a brain tumor was removed. A few of you know that was not the end of my return toward wellness. I needed two more surgeries at age 19 and one again at 20. It created many complications in our lives. Our relationship didn't make it through. In our twenties we both married others. But we were not going to find the happiness we let slip through our fingers.
But God is good. Enter Dave and his untold hours to give Orleans American High new life. He had a newsletter still printed and sent snail mail. It had the list of all of us he could find who had ever gone to OHS and he wanted $10.00 to get one to my door. By this time my life had hit another bump. I had a heart attack, needed heart bypass and was very behind on all things, especially mail. My parents once again stepped in. I was long divorced and grateful for their help. While going through my bills, my mom asked me if I wanted Dave's newsletter. But I had missed the deadline. I sat down and wrote Dave my reason of my lack of response. My mind told me he had to have one list to copy off for me so I included the $10.00 for the list hoping he would have time to send it.
Dave had not gotten to the list. We all know how this life's needs take over. But when he got to the list, he included my excuse. He printed a story on me and Ron read it.
The rest is history. We married in 1996. We have a wonderful blended family. I work three says a week. Ron works at the Kennedy Space Center. Life is good.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. We wish we could be at this reunion. We took a wonderful trip this year by rail through Alaska. It was to celebrate our tenth year anniversary. And right now KSC needs to get shuttles off the ground. No time off for Ron. I will ask Ron to include a few of our Alaska pictures with this letter.
And thank you so much for all you have done to keep our memories alive, Dave. You know of Ron and my story. I am sure there countless stories due to the hours you have put in.
(Ron and Valerie Rousey)

MESSAGE FROM PEGGY KANE ('64):
I'm really looking forward to coming to Va. for the reunion. The last one I attended was in Washington, D.C. many years ago, but it was wonderful to see so many friends and catch up on our lives. I lived in Orleans from1962 thru 1967. I graduated in 1964 and married a Lt. there in 1966. My first son was born in Orleans, but passed away at nine months of age with a rare form of leukemia at the National Institute of Health in D.C., actually on the feast day of Joan of Arc. I have four other children, including twin daughters, and 3 grandchildren! I am divorced, and began my own employment agency 14 years ago. I have businesses in eight states, so traveling is part of my routine, but I love meeting new people and seeing new places. I deal mainly with the steel industry, which is booming right now. Although I live in the "Delta" part of the South, with so much agriculture, my county is actually the 2nd largest in steel production in the United States
I have really enjoyed the web site, and reading all the news on everyone, as well as all the great pictures. I wish I had been more involved before now, but I am trying to catch up by looking at old year books and remembering great friendships.
I am truly blessed to have my children and grandchildren all within a few miles, so my life really does revolve around their lives, but the trip to Roanoke is something I'm really looking forward to.
I'm not great on the computer, so the picture I've attached was taken this Spring in my back yard, and used for my business card, but I don't know how to tie it in to the yearbook picture as some do!!!!
I owned a business in Charleston, SC for 7 years, and absolutely feel it is one of the most beautiful and historic in the country. I would like to suggest Charleston as a possible location for a reunion in the future. I was about to marry and stay there, when my daughter was in a critical auto accident and I had to stay here to care for her for quite a long time. I have had a beach home there in the summer for all of my extended family, for 9 years, and we always have a wonderful time with so much to do and see.
My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. My telephone is 870-763-2446, and mobile is 870-740-6613. I look forward to seeing everyone soon, and appreciate all of the time and effort you have put into the reunion. I'll bring some great pictures that I have from my class to share!!!

MESSAGE FROM CATHY RODGERS ('62):
Dave Thatcher. I may have been in a class or two with you in
Orleans, and I am penning this brief note because I am on your addressee
list for information about reunions of former students at the American
dependents school there. During the past several years I have
aperiodically received notes from you regarding these events, but because
I went to SO MANY schools across the globe, I was no more interested in
going to an Orleans reunion than to one in Frankfurt or Yokohama or other
places 'round the globe, so you have not received any responses from me. I
say the foregoing with no intent to express disinterest in the wonderful
people who went to school in Orleans. I am compelled to write
to you this time, however, because the singular charm of your latest warm
invitation to anyone who went to school at Foret says a lot about you and
your commitment to bringing people together. It just has to be
acknowledged! I think what you are and have been about is wonderful.
I would consider my life well lived if I had spent my avocational hours
dedicated to keeping a "family" - I mean the diaspora of
military brats' family - together as you have, in encouraging people to
"come as they are" and be welcomed at these reunions.

Alexandra, who was 2 years old at the first reunion, graduated from The University of Texas last December and is an Investigator in Dallas with the Texas Department of Family and Children's Services. She won't get rich doing that, but she's having a positive impact on many lives. We're very proud of her.
Stephen and Stephanie, our adopted kids, are starting their senior year at Clear Lake High School, and are making some tentative plans for college next year. Despite having a crappy life for their first 21 months, they have turned out to be amazingly well adjusted. We're very proud of them, too.
Dawn and I are still working, and will be to the bitter end. There are times when I regret not having put in 20 years for Uncle Sam, just for the security, but 99.9% of the time I'm convinced I'm on the right career path.

Dawn and I had a blast at the first reunion, but breaking away for subsequent events has been tough.

Dear Dave...Your e-mail is so enticing and I suspect you got a very
good response. Just wanted you to know that Alan and I just won't be
able to come after all. We will try for next year, however.
Also, we got together with Bill and Michele McClain, here at our house for
dinner, in June, and had a truly wonderful time. Bill brought
pictures from Orleans and OHS, and even though we had never met, it felt
just like we'd all always been friends. His dad and mine practically
had the same car (or should I say boat?) while in Orleans. We shared
many common memories of the area and the school. I'm still kicking
myself as the camera sat in the kitchen and I never remembered to pick it
up to get some shots of us. It was great fun, though, and we hope to
see them again soon. I hope you have a wonderful reunion and I will
be thinking of all of you. Best regards, Bonnie (Scarbrough) Stagner

Alas, I won't be able to come to the reunion ... although a colleague of mine in DC is taking pity on my inability to work right now, and will be providing me work where I can commute, like three weeks in DC and a week home, etc., so if we actually cut a deal, I'll call on ye, if ye're still in the area.
The war is not affecting us much (yet) but for instance, as I write this (at 8:20 at night) I hear the F16s overhead, on their way to pulverise my enemies. Well, there you go, always a sergeant's daughter ... and I DO have a dog in this fight, so .... I'm not going to get more political than that.
Anyway, if I find myself in DC at that late minute, I'll drop in, but so far I have to jobs on the table, one in Ireland and one in DC, and for the moment, if the Irish job materializes, I will take it just so that I'm closer to home.

Ralph examines recruits at the Milwaukee Military Processing Center a couple of times a week, and I cover maternity leaves for School Speech Pathologists, so that keeps us busy and not fully retired.

UPDATE FROM CHUCK RALSTON ('62) -->
Some force is working to keep me from coming to the Roanoke reunion, but I'm still on track.
As my boss told me recently, "Chuck, if it weren't for bad luck you wouldn't have any luck at all!" Fathers' Day 18 June was a beautiful routine Sunday and begged for a mountain bike ride in the cool of the morning so my neighbor, Angel Cobiella, and I left at 7:30 am for the Silver Comet Trail about a mile and a half from our neighborhood. We were going down hill on Nickajack Road just outside our Glenleigh subdivision, Angel about three bike lengths in front of me. About half a mile down road, a medium-sized brown dog darted between us making a beeline right across my path. I remember yelling, 'No, No.' and then I was upended, my body going over the bike to its right. I hit the road at about 25 mph. Blacked out, Angel told me afterwards and not breathing. Angel, an Internist MD, moved me slowly and opened my mouth to get my tongue out of the air passage. He also called 911 on his Cell. Cobb County Fire-Rescue sent an ambulance and took me to the Marietta Georgia Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, initially for neurological MRI scan. I had a skull fracture (small, to the rear), broke 7 ribs, and shattered my clavicle on my right side. I did not puncture a lung although the doctors do not know why I did not, except to tell me my daily routine of walking 4 miles during lunch and lifting weights 4 days a week probably kept me from even greater damage. I also have several internal bruises (hematomas) along my right leg, backside, and along the right front part of my chest. BUT, I'm getting better each day. I go to rehabilitation twice a week and I am back at the gym now (this week) walking in the 50-meter pool at least 16 laps moving my arms through the water like a boxer working the heavy bag. I was in the hospital 9 days (18-27 June) the first four in the intensive care unit and the remaining five in the step-down telemetry unit where the nurses and technicians were super. Michele and I had planned to go back to Kennestone to visit the nurses at ICU and the SD Telemetry ward last Friday evening, but * * *
Our house caught fire Friday 7 July between 5:30 and 6:00 pm. The upstairs master bath area's exhaust fan's motor seized up, sparked, and ignited the joists and rafters in the attic space overhead. Fire flashed through the bathroom-vanity area and the smoke damaged our master bedroom and hallway upstairs. Fire fighters got to the scene within 15 minutes and got their hoses on the fire to put it out, but the water went everywhere downstairs -- into the room with my art books, stereo, speakers, CD-collection, drums, bass, and piano. BUT, I think I will be able to salvage all but a few art books. Instruments survived intact. Maybe the insurance coverage will result in a new stereo system!
My 15-year-old Theresa was the only one at home at the time of the fire. Theresa smelled smoke, went upstairs to see what it was, saw the black smoke filling the hallway, got her computer laptop, her curling iron (teenagers think of the wierdest things), and the two schnauzers, Ivy and Daizy, the house portable phone and went outside and called her Mom. Then Michele called 911 and the fire fighters came quickly and did their thing. Michele called me (I was on my way home from Fort McPherson 22 miles south of our home.) and when I got to home, all I saw were half a dozen fire trucks, suited-up fire fighters, and water everywhere in the street. There is nothing one can do at a fire except watch the fire fighters work the fire. Nothing.
Afterward, John Kelly, a friend of ours (and a fire fighter off duty at the time) said we needed to call the insurance company (Cincinnati Insurance) which Michele did do. No response from Cincy Ins. So Kelly said to call a fire damage control company. We did not know what that was but did call Integra (a local outfit) and their reps came to us the next day, Saturday 8 July, and began to mitigate the damage to our home by installing dehumidifiers, fans, etc. Sunday 9 July they came back and gathered clothing we would need for about two weeks and wisked all off to their ops center. Three days later all of the clothing came back, clean, pressed, smoke-free. By Monday 10 July, Cincy Ins contacted Michele and applauded the decision to get Integra involved early on. By Tuesday 11 July, insurance company had its estimator, adjustors in to survey damage, demolition, and reconstruction approaches and costs. First, house will be emptied of all contents which will be cleaned and warehoused. Second, demolition of damaged areas. Third, rebulid of bath, bedroom, "music room" and a new roof, new siding (it melted on the side where the fire was), new electrical throughout, new plumbing, new floors, walls, ceilings, new beds, etc. Target re-entry to our home at 4523 Knvarra Circle will be on / about Columbus Day 2006.
Meanwhile, Michele and I are staying with the best neighbors one could have. Mich is with Mark and Hollis MILLER about 200 yards down the circle from our home. I staying with Angel COBIELLA and his wife Lily GOMEZ, both doctors, about 200 yards up the circle. First time ever Michele and I have been separated. (Interstingly, it has been good for us to be separated during this incident -- keeps our heads cool and clear.) I'm staying with Angel and Lily because I cannot sleep yet in a bed (hurts my back because of the ribs) and they have a separate downstairs bedroom with a lounge chair that has its control handle on the LEFT, which is perfect for me. Plus, Angel plays the best Latin-Cuban, PuertoRican music! So, when my neighbor Bob BUSH, USAF Colonel, drives me home from Fort McPherson (he works their too), he drops me at the MILLER's where I have supper with Michele, Mark and Hollis, and then by 9-10 PM, Michele drives my up the circle to Angel and Lily's place where I sleep, shave, shower, breakfast. And then COL BUSH picks me up to drive to Ft McPherson.
So, that's the wrap on my scene for the last month. My birthday was 20 July, this Thursday-- now 62. I hope the rest of 2006 is mellow. You just never know what is coming around the bend though so be careful and enjoy each day as a gift from the Heavenly Father.
In addition to taking care of me, and now working all this house fire stuff, Michele is organizing the wedding of daughter Bridget and the double reception for Bridget and David AND daughter Alexandra and husband Conor, who married earlier in the year there in California.

I was married from 1964 to 1986. I have a son, Parker and two daughters, Stephanie and Carin. We now have six grandchildren.
I remarried in 1991 to Michael and we have lived in Woodbury, Minnesota since that time. I retired from 3M Company in 1992 after 25 years of labor. I discovered my love of painting in 2000 and have been painting like crazy since then. I began my artistic journey in watercolors, but after 4 years, I itched to try something different and discovered acrylics and canvas! I was in love!!!
My husband retired from 3M Company 5 years ago and is an avid gardener, fisherman and now....builds custom fishing rods. His life is heaven..that's what he tells me. He is a fantastic cook, a great dancer and he laughs alot.

REFOUND: BITSY CABALLERO Lee ('64) married (43 years to Raymond), and
living in Israel. Email: BRATNELLA46@YAHOO.COM.
I moved from Ireland in December of 2004, after five very productive years. When there I was able to visit the old stompin' grounds in Orleans, and took the four daughters who were with me to my old houses in Marcilly-en-Villette and in Olivet. When in Ireland I began to write novels and articles, factual and essay-types, and have been published regularly since 2003. I took classes there in Ireland to perfect the craft, get pointers and whatnot, and was told rather soundly by my Irish counterparts that I probably would never be very good until I could drink them under the table. Only time in my life I've been drunk was 9/11, when a bunch of us Americans gathered at the only place that was opened, and the barmaid just kept bringin' 'em, and I just kept downin' 'em. So my mates at the writing group made me an honorary drinker/writer.
So moved to Hod HaSharon, Israel, where I now live. I started up a court reporting agency, serving the American lawyers who come through doing depositions, and established a little writing company called Wordworks. What we do is prepare documents for Israeli companies to present to American or English/Irish companies in proper format, which is growing into quite the little business, and of course, now the novels are making the rounds of the publishers. Dunno what will happen, but wish I could sell one. It would be fun, I think. They are murder mysteries, based on the cases I used to do in court.
My two daughters that are here in Israel have just opened the first authentic Mexican food restaurant in downtown Tel Aviv, so at least we'll get some comfort food now and then. I want to extend an invitation to any OHSer who comes through on tour to give me a call, and we'll meet up, show you a good time, or take you to interesting places where tourists don't often go.

Dear OHS Friends:
I want to thank all of you who so kindly responded to my wife's call for help regarding my health. Your thoughts, prayers, e-mails, phone calls, and letters were very much appreciated.
It has been many long months of struggling with severe and incapacitating headaches but I believe the cycle has now finally broken. A new medication was introduced with a gradual increase in dosage over the next number of weeks and so far, results have been pretty good. I just started back to work last week for a couple of hours two days a week. The doctor would not say I was suffering from migraines but said it "suggested migraine-like symptons".
Once again, thank you for all your advice, referrals and suggestions. My wife, Michele has been the rock through all of this and wouldn't give up her mission to bring me back to "normal".
Bill McClain (from 1959-1961)

|4 Nov 2005||ROANOKE REUNION STATUS: On 30 October 2005, the cadre for next year's reunion met at the Hotel Roanoke to get a feel for the place, and to firm up some of the details. We all left with the feeling that this is going to be a great reunion. Of course, even though Roanoke has a lot to offer (and it really does), and even though the Hotel Roanoke is a beautiful old hotel, the degree of greatness will be directly related to the number of OHSers that take part in it. Some people are going to come as early as Wednesday in order to have time to tour the Roanoke Valley and the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are beautiful overlooks, wineries, memorials, museums, shops, more shops, restaurants, more restaurants -- all kinds -- very international. Ok, I know, I'm hyping the location, and not the reunion. Well, the locale and the facility deserve hyping, and you already know what reunions are about. After 8 of them, we basically get together for a big dinner/dance on Saturday night. The rest of the time is spent hanging out with old friends, enjoying their company, and having a good time in the pub or the hospitality room at the hotel, or taking in the local sights. One thing that will be different about this dinner/dance is that one of our own will be acting as the DJ for the evening, so the party can go on as long as everyone still has energy. So call up the hotel now and reserve your room. Then call up some of your classmates and convince them to do the same. Come enjoy a pleasant weekend in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and make this thing happen.|

THANK YOU: From Michele McClain, wife of BILL MCCLAIN (64):
We are totally overwhelmed by the number of quick responses with suggestions and referrals from so many of the OHS family. You are truly a very special and unique group of friends who are bound together for life.
It is now at the point where I cannot personally answer each e-mail but want to let everyone know how very much your thoughts, prayers and kind words meant to us. However, I read each and every one and print copies for Bill to read in bed.
Bill has had almost every test known to the medical profession. In fact, maybe TWO of each. He is being monitored very closely by his primary care doctor, his neurologist (Director of the Headache Clinic of Atlanta) and his endocrinologist at Piedmont Hospital. I am on a mission and will not stop until I get my husband back.
Thanks for your concern and I will be back in touch when we get some answers and results. Until then, take care of yourselves.
|23 Sep 2005||
REQUEST FOR HELP: BILL McCLAIN (64) is seriously ill, and since his current medical providers haven't seemed to pinpoint the cause of his illness, his wife, Michele, is asking for our help in trying to determine what is causing his illness. If you can shed some light on this matter, email her at UBSHELL@AOL.COM . Below are two emails that she has sent to Judy Holdsworth Scott, and she has given me permission to bring this to your attention as well.
First email from Bill McClain's wife, Michele, dated 15 Sep 2005
Sorry I haven't been in touch sooner but things have been hectic here. I hate this very impersonal way of being in touch but we have had so much to take care of.
Bill was admitted to the hospital the first of the week. You may or may not know that he has been suffering for 1 year from severe and violent headaches. Causing him to throw up constantly and be in bed for days at a time. He has lost his appetite and become totally dehydrated. They released him today redoing his meds and dosage. He will need to be constantly monitored for months to come since his symptoms are still there. They have ruled out a tumor and must now treat it without this.
He was working full time then went down to part time and now is not working at all. He is totally incapacitated and pretty much confined to bed for now. He is not the same old wonderful Bill we have all known over the years and I am praying that we get to the bottom of what is wrong. I miss my husband and the fun guy I have known over the past 35 years.
I know many of you are going through some rough times as well and we need to reach out to each other and support our friends and family. Love to everyone.
Second email, dated 22 Sep 2005
Bill is still doing very poorly. We went to see the new endro today and he said he was only there to treat his diabetes - the headache matter should be in the hands of a neuro. He said there is probably no connection between the two. We may have to look for another endro in this part of town. I am sure Bill would feel inconvenienced trying to get to Piedmont and parking, etc. On the way home he throw up in the car numerous times. He has been terribly disoriented and forgetful. I don't know where to turn but MUST find some help somewhere. If anyone has any suggestions or referrals, please let me know. It is my only mission to see him get better and get to the old Bill. At this point, he has no quality of life. None of the doctors can give a prognoses or diagnoses.

I (Tish Britt Douglas) wrote to Chuck Wise '64 in Iraq to tell him that I would wear his nametag at our reunion in San Antonio so that he would be with us, his ol' OHS pals ... and this is his reply (I am sharing it with his permission).
I hope everyone takes note of every moment that life has to offer. Life is so precious. Over here we experience such a waste of innocent lives. I know all my OHS family knows how much I will miss being with them. I appreciate your wearing my name while the reunion is going on. Tell all that I send my love and best wishes for a safe and happy time together.
We military brats know how to stick together don't we. Know that I am with you all in spirit and ask for your prayers that God will see me home safe to see all of you again. Have a great time together and stay in touch.
Baghdaddy Wise, Class of '64......GO TROJANS!!!!!!
