School Story

Being a sports nut, I still check on how the Tigers are doing and agonize over why they lost and exalt when they win!
I had a funny experience in the summer of 2012. I was visiting my kid sister and her neighbor was Rogers grad. I said at one point: " didn't it just drive you crazy when Gonzaga always won in football?" His reply: "no, it drove me crazy when LC always won everything." Never even thought about it that way but I guess we were lucky to be so successful.

Otherwise I remember all the cons and cool things that we got to do. The Minstrel Show and the Christmas Con and Coliseum games

I just feel we got the best education at LC and it gave all the confidence to go out into the world and be good citizens.
in fact: I told my son that if we lived in Spokane he'd have graduated from LC.

How in the hell are Marty? I haven't heard about you in all these years. I won't be at the reunion because of family(in-law) health issues. But, I was e-mailing with Ron Merriman about the old Beta gang. Do you have any info on any of them? Glad you are going to the reunion as you were really a big part of the LC gang. Have a great time.

Kevin, What a great picture. I've never ridden a motorcycle, but you guys look like you're having the time of your life. I would have followed in my sports car!!! Tom
