This is for Darlene Hafner (Tennyson)

I have recently been going through some old photos of my Dads.  In the process I came across about 20 photos of a parade.  They must have been from a Centennial or something of that sort, women watching the parade are dressed in old time long dresses, men have beards etc.  Newest cars in photos are 1958.  There are abouit 20 photos and they are color transparancies.  (slides)  I would like to give them to someone in Carrington would you ask around please.

That would most likely be the 75th Anniversary, great celebration. Foster County now has a very nice museum, out by the Fairgrounds, many of us saw it during our reunion in '08. I know I was impressed. I'm certain Darlene can provide you with contact information. 

Have a great day !

Hey Russ.  That would work I just hate to throw photos like this away but they don't mean any hing to me.  They are pretty good photos showing floats, the high school band and people watching.  Good idea thanks.  Stay safe.  I should probably change that photo.

Thanks to all who wished me a Happy Birthday.  (The wishes weren't on this forum)  I mention it here because I still have hopes that as the next reunion gets closer people will start to use this forum more.  It could be a bit like our private Facebook. (which I don't care for)  If anyone gives a damn I updated my profile I was amazed at how out of date it was.  Hey Ivy I guess because you are a year older than me you are a year wiser.

You know I must have had a bad experience when I was a kid I have never liked costumes for halloween.  I always helped with my kids stuff and always took my grandson in his costumes but personally not so much.  But I have a story:  I just bought a refurbished X-box, race car games and steering wheel controller.  Why you ask, because I recently got my butt kicked by my 10 year old grandson on his X-box with his "super thumbs".  So I am gettting ready for "super thumbs" when he shows up for here Thanksgiving.  I figure I have the advantage for the first two hours.    Just so you know my wife thinks I have gone a bit over the top.   (I need to change that photo)

Greetings Classmates, 

We were excited yesterday when arriving home, after a long day at appointments in Bismarck, when picking up the mail.

In the mail was a card from all the classmates and spouses that were at the reunion in Carrington.  What an spark of JOY that card gave to us!  We thought of all of you while you were there and were very envious of all of you.  But this card gave us such a heart warming surprise, thank you.  We are so grateful for remembering us.

We are still in the testing mode, trying to figure out just what is going on and happening.  Nothing is speedy about the medical field as I'm sure you all know.  

But I say just bring on the next reunion, the sooner the better!

Sometime  ago I said I was going to change the photo of me in the mask.  I finally got around to it.   That Is  Desi she is our daughters year old minature schnauzer.  We dog sit her a lot.  I think the photo is an improvement.

Larry Reisnouer

Okay I changed the photo again.  I thought maybe if I put the puppy photo in here we ccould get some sort of chat going.  Anyway we just got back from visiting friends in Boise wandered around an old mining town and had lunch at St Chapell Winery where I managed to buy some very good wine that I am saving for Thanksgiving.

Mary Ann posted on her Facebook a picture of our combination class when we were in first grade and the third grade class.  Weren't we in a combination class in our fourth grade with the sixth graders?  Seems as if the same students were in that second combination class.  Does anybody have a picture of that year?

Won't forget the first day of school when we were sitting in Mrs. Wenstrom's room and then our names were called to go to the room across the hall to join the third graders.  My Mother sent a hanky along and I forgot it back in Mrs. W room.  Somebody came to the door and asked if it belonged to any of us.  I was so bashful and didn't raise my hand.

Then in fourth grade, we were in the room above our first grade room in another combination room with an attractive young teacher that I can't remember her name.  I tell my grandchildren that our art project was a copied picture from a color book and we were to color it the same way the teacher had.  Same in second grade.  Won't forget the jack-o-lantern picture that Mary Ann and I colored by pushing our orange crayon hard on the picture for a vivid orange pumpkin.  That teacher, Miss Lee???? lived in Mayville when I was teaching in Mayville.  Her niece was in my fourth grade class and told me that her aunt was my second grade teacher.  Wish she had come to the school to visit me.

Thank you Mary Ann for sending the picture.  It jars many grade school memories.

Did not know that pictures were on those files.  I've looked at the pictures of the reunions, but didn't know that pictures were under the titles of Grade School and Grade School Classes.  

You did a great job on our web site.  Many thanks!

I have to admit I haven't looked at this forum for a long time but I had hoped to find some new messages.  Guess not.  Bad wildfires around here thousands of acres burned, one person killed and at least 200 structures, homes and outbuildings lost.  The smoke is nasty air quality numbers around 450.  Us old timers stay indoors.

Merry Christmas to the class of '62!  I haven't responded to as many Facebook posts as usual and have missed quite a few birthday greetings.  Do I have a story to tell you!

2023 is a year I won't want to relive!  Nick, my husband of 57 years, passed away May 1 in a local care home.  In early June a one day bus trip to a casino a couple hours away was advertised and I signed up, thinking it woul be a good getaway.  Before we reached the casino we were hit be a truck near Carberry, MB.  Thankfully, I do not remember the crash and have had no flashback memories.  I was taken to a hospital in Winnipeg where I remained until July 6 when I was transferred to the Dauphin hospital.  Seventeen of the twenty-five people on the bus were killed.  I came home from the hospital August 2 and am doing well. I use a walker when walking far, but am back to a normal schedule and am very thankful for family, friends,and the medical care I received!

Wishing you all a happy, healthy 2024.  Hopefully we can get together for one more reunion!

Mary Kay,  So sorry to hear about losing your husband.  Fifty seven years is a long time to be with someone but now is the time to remember and relish all the good times you had.  I'm also so full of gratitude to hear that you were spared in that horrific accident that hit your bus.  Time is slipping away for all of us so enjoy each day and we must remember to appreciate each and every family member and every friend.  And yes, another reunion would be a way to see classmates from so many years ago.  Barb (Willey) Silkey

Mary Kay 

Ellen and I were saddened to learn of your double tragedy.  We hope you have complete recovery from your injuries.  It would be great to see you at a class reunion.

Mary Ann Straley

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all the wonderful folks of the CHS class of 1962!  And may we all be allowed at least one more gathering!

Mary Kay, so sorry to hear you lost your husband.  

And you had quite a story to tell!  I thought I would have the worst story of 2023, but you win!  My story is that of a neighbor to our California home who was both high on drugs and paranoid last June 16th.  Why, we don't know, but he decided to fire his 9mm into our home from above the wall that separates our homes.  the shots entered about ten feet from where I was sitting.  I was not hit (that's why MK wins!), but it was a sobering experience followed by the shooter's choice to get into his car half an hour later, drive into our gated community (gate locked open by first police officer in case he had to call for back up, which he did, thankfully), drive by our home once, and turn around to come by for a second pass. He was then met by a bevy of squad cars and, when he waved his 9mm at the officers, they fired and injured him.  He is still in jail, has been determined competent to stand trial, but it seems to go on forever in the court system!

May we all be safe until our next reunion!
