Hello everyone, I received an interesting phone call today from an old friend and classmate from Briarcliff "Dave Bauchman".  He told me about this website, It's just wonderful to read all the "stuff" people have to say after all these 46? years or so? I remember the majority of those mentioned here on this blog from the class of 67 anyway. As for myself I'm retired and just "mess around" with "HOT RODS AND GUNS"  and build an occasional Race Engine/ Performance engine every once in a while as that's what I did the majority of my adulthood. I live in Buford, Georgia (Lake Lanier area) with my lovely wife Cindy who is a Registered Nurse of some 40 years. I e-mail and see several old  Briarcliff Class Mates almost daily and we still talk about the "old days at Briarcliff". It's my opinion that we were really Blessed to have that community to live in. Seems like the worlds so far away from our way of being taught to live life doesn't it? I spent some time with another class mate yesterday "David Summerville" of the class of 67 and we talked about life in general and our families. I have a Daughter and a Son from my first marriage and I also have 3 Step Son's. Thanks for the entertainment and Have a great day!!

Danan again-thanks all you 68ers for your response to my question about Debbie W. and Cliff "Does Anybody Want Another Beer" Barrow.  I can't say I'm surprised about the bust down in Tijuana or Debbie's involvement in the world's oldest profession.   See ya'll in 2018.

I am so sorry to hear about Susan.  Susan was a neighbor and friend. She had a quirky sense of humor and I was always in "awe" of her intellect, wit, and humor.  I remember some fun times together on drill team.  There was a game when nobody but Susan heard Pat B. whistle to signal our start into the routine, Susan took off marching down the sideline, while the rest of the 63 girls stood at attention.  I am sure there was a gasp in the crowd as Susan was the lone Baronette marching.  But, Susan wasn't marching to the beat of her own drum, she actually was the ONLY one who had it right.  HmmmmRest in Peace, Susan.  You will be missed.

I was lucky enough to be able to reconnect with Susan last summer. We had wonderful conversations over the phone about our lives since highschool. I know she had been in ill health but she still had that spark of joy and humor in her voice.   I remember our senior year, when we were to play Druid Hills and Susan came up with the most incredible idea. She presented the idea....the whole student body would be behind the field out of sight when people started coming for the game. Druid Hills would wonder why there was no turn out....then we would all come marching in around the field carrying blue and white balloons. They way she told it was so awesome, she was a master with words and so enthusiastic. I will miss her and she will always hold a special place in my heart.

I remember Susan as being an extremely bright and funny girl! She was someone to admire since good grades and popularity seem to come so easily. I have many fond memories of her, but one seems to stand out more than others. At one of our spend the night parties at Penny Calhoun’s house, it was a tradition to get out the Noxzema for an evening facial and then roll our hair before retiring to bed. Susan used the “largest rollers” I have ever seen in my life. Thank goodness they were plastic! If they had been metal, ET would never have been able to call home! Susan and Penny, rest in peace knowing you both will be missed.

That is such a coincidence--and funny that my memory is of the same...... plant--wow! She had an avacado plant growing on her front porch and one day when walking by her house on Leafmore (a street over from me), she showed it to me--I thought what an exotic plant--I dont even know what this is. I always did think she was very unique. I am so sorry and sad she is gone.

One funny memory that I have of Susan is that she had a "logo" that she used quite a lot.  It was a drawing of an avocado plant and she named it "Arthur".  I have no idea what an avocado plant looks like, but I assume her drawing was accurate.  For a wedding gift she gave me a "Harvest Gold" kitchen pot (remember how popular that color was???) and she had painted her Arthur plant on the front of the pot.  I used that pot for probably 20  years and always thought of her when I used it.  I remember her as being very creative and gifted with the written word.  I also viewed her as fearless.  I wish she could have joined us at some of our reunions.

 I had one date with Susan. It was a day date. We were going to Lanier with a bunch of other people and she and I were following them to the boat. We got separated and never made it to right dock. After much searching we headed back home. We were on Buford Highway, in an undeveloped stretch and Susan suggested that we pull off and just chill. We did. We sat on this grass hill above the highway and watched the cars go by, talked about crazy stuff, and kissed and hugged for a while. She had more energy than anyone I had ever met before. RIP Susan.

I have such fond memories of Coach Ramos and a short story to tell.

We were at football practice one day and Coach Ramos was a new coach.

We were doing tackling drills and a guy hurt is shoulder.  My team mate was on the ground and Coach Ramos comes running up and get down on his kness and starts yelling into the teammates ear.
"Do you believe in Coach Ramos" Do you believe in Coach Ramos" and the guy stands up and start yelling back at Coach Ramos " Yes, I believe in Coach Ramos" Coach Ramos said " I can't hear you, Do you believe in Coach Ramos" and my teammate said almost screaming " Yes, I believe in Coach Ramos" and Coach Ramos says " Your Healed, get back in line."
I think about Coach Ramos and smile, he did have such an impact on my life, it was wonderful to be able to talk with him at our reunion. 
I loved Coach Ramos and will miss him.

Coach Cookie Ramos Passes

Augusto Coach Augusto "Cookie" Ramos Coach Augusto "Cookie" Ramos, USMC/Ret.,73 years old, went to be with the Lord on July 24, 2009. Coach Ramos was born in Tampa Florida, on October 7, 1935. He was the son of the late Miguel and Maria Ramos, he had two siblings, his brother the late Wilfred Ramos, and his surviving sister Ceida Ramos Garcia. Coach is survived his sons, Mike, Augusto "Cookie" Jr. and Rocky, daughter-in-law Rebecca, grandchildren, Stephanie, Mike Jr., Rocky Jr., Michelle, Danielle and Lillie Ramos. Coach Ramos's life was filled with many blessings in his professional life as an educator, in his competitive life as an athlete and coach, and in his personal life as a husband, father, and friend: He married the love of his life and enjoyed forty-nine passionate years of marriage. He raised three sons to manhood and was proud of them all. He was blessed with the birth of six grandchildren and lived to see them flouris h and grow to adulthood. He influenced the lives of thousands of young people as a coach and educator and inspired them to become productive members of society, community servants, and genuinely good people. He was admired and respected by his peers for his professionalism, and his commitment to treating all students with equality and dignity. He was a man of faith, respect, and integrity. His personal achievements can be measured in the life he lived and the many young people he inspired to be their best. Consistent with his personal wishes, Coach Ramos' remains were cremated and will be interned with his wife, Hope. Memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 1, 2009, at St. Thomas More Catholic Church, located at 624 West Ponce De Leon Ave, Decatur, Georgia 30030.

I just thought I would drop you good people a note.  Things are well in Denver, CO.  My oldest, a math teacher is moving back home after a year in Anchorage...so he'll be with us for the summer.  That's a mixed blessing...ha ha!

I am still looking for work, coming up on 8 months now.  The Good Lord has provided many miracles along this journey and we still have our house and continue to persevere.
I don't know when I will make it back over to Atlanta, but rest assured you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Take care and keep rocking!

I have recieved several emails regarding by brother death.  I sincerely appreciate eveyone's thougths and prayers. 

Randy was 36 years old.  My Dad remarried after my parents divorce and had two kids.

Even though Randy and I were 20 plus years apart we were very close. 

He was an incredible human being.  He was married with two kids, 2 years old Samual and 6 years old Charlotte. His wife's name is Sarah. Randy was a dedicated husband and father. 

As Director of Governmental Relations with Publix Supermarket he touched alot of lives. Always positive, upbeat, people just wanted to around him.  There were over 1200 people at his service.

Randy and Sarah were our neighbors for a couple of years when my family lived in Marietta. 
Every Sunday night for 2 years Randy and Sarah  came over to our hourse for Sunday dinner.  My kids are pretty vocal and we would get into great discussions about a variety of issues and in most instances those discussions became pretty heated.  Randy or Sarah at the right moment would say something histerical and defuse a otherwise heated moments.  My kids were teenagers at the time and Uncle Randy and Aunt Sarah were pretty cool.  So Randy's death had a huge impact on my kids. None of us can believe ihe is gone.  

The Florida Senate passed a Resolution last week that declared April 18, 2009  as Randy Roberts day, that day happens to be the same day Univeristy of Flroida blue and gold game, signifying the end of spring practice.  Yes, Randy was gator always a gator. 

The world was a better place with Randy on this earth.  As you can imagine, we miss him dearly. 

Sarah has established a Foundation in Randy's name.  The Foundation will focus on kids and how to engage them in the political process and their communities. 

I wish you guys could have met him, he was a Class of 68 kind of guy.

I so-o-o-o remember Mrs. Newton's Latin Class.  Yes we called her Endora, also The Fig.  She periodically said I was "guffing off" (pronounced exactly that way, like stuffing.) She went through this pop-quiz jag for a while, and once right after she gave out the tests we had a SCHEDULED fire drill. We just took our tests outside and cribbed all the answers with each other, and came back in and got A's.  She never suspected a thing.

This is weird, reading about the reunion and how everybody is, and being so far away (if you start digging now, you'll end up where I am, in Phnom Penh Cambodia.)  It's still pouring outside, monsoon season isn't quite over - but  unlike the rain in Atlanta in November, it's warm and dries off quickly.  We've got bananas and coconuts growing in the yard as testimonial.   Since I couldn't come to the reunion, come visit and we can reune over here-- I'll take you to Angkor Wat.    Linda

Two thousand miles and 40 years is a long way from the people I still hold dear.  However, after viewing my DVD today, time and distance no longer exist!  I loved watching it with my husband!  This gave him the opportunity to experience a very important time in my life that, otherwise, would not have been possible.  How fortunate we are to have witnessed such a remarkable time in history with such amazing friends.  I honestly believe theses times taught me how to live my life with true dignity, courage and pride.  And even though our high school friends may not have been by our sides as we grew older and wiser, we could still feel their earlier inspiration and influence.  Unfortunately, I was not able to attend this wonderful affair.  But thanks to Kathryn, I not only had a bird’s eye view of the events but traveled back to a more simple time when a good hair day and a passing math grade were all, life consuming!  That’s pretty special!  Thank you Kathryn for creating a loving masterpiece!  Thank you for giving me my youth back when I can really appreciate it!  Sharing this with my children will be another, treasured blessing!  Thank you Kathryn!!!  God bless!

Thanks for the wonderful compliments on the DVDs!  It was great fun & I'm sure that I could put names & faces together for the next 40 years! Seriously, I've looked at all the smiling faces for many months now & I can't imagine an overall happier group than our Class of '68.  I know we've all had our share of heartaches, however, we are resilient & it shows in every smile, in every handshake, every hug and in every post that I've read.

All the endless meetings, the daily phone calls with Rick & Tricia, looking at more yearbook pictures than I wanted to -- were all worth it when I saw classmates walk through the doors of the Westin & immediately renew old friendships with hugs, laughter & joy.

Thank you all for making a great weekend!

The twinkling eyes and broad smiles tell the story of Reunion 2.  Kathryn, you deliciously captured the weekend.  Who chose the music for both DVDs, you or Charlie? Particularly liked Tim McGraw and Lionel Ritchey on this one, My Old Friend and I'm Going Home.

Dovie Wingard, ex-Briarcliffer, gave me a newspaper article about memory research.  It talked about emotions being attached to memories. Reunion 1 dusted off the memories, and Reunion 2 ushered in the emotions.

Kathryn, your the bomb!!

Looking forward to a "mini" reunion in the future.

Long Hugs - Randy Campbell asking me "did I bring all my x- wives to the reunion?" - Re-living our last basketball game with coach Hixson and Ben Jones - Looking around for Gail Williamson - visiting with Hobie Whitney then watching he and Jan Thibadeau "burning up" the dance floor - Appologizing to Anne Green for being a lousy next door neighbor - hugging Mary Shults a dozen or more times - Not wanting the reunion DVD to end - Sharing Lake Burton stories with Judy Futch - Telling Tricia Gaston what an unbelievable job she did on "The Shield" --40 years later - Mike Allison explain the process of brewing single malt scotch - Seeing Libby Carlson for only 10 seconds on Friday night - Not eating on Saturday night - All the fabulous LBD's (little black dresses) - Not visiting with Molly Myer's & wanting to - How "buff" Kenny Brooks is - Sharing early childhood stories with Bill Bell - Trying to talk Cathy Davis to attend another reunion - Sharing desert with Ricky Corless and Mike/Christy Roberts - Taking silly, fun photos of Sandy, John, and Bobbie - Not taking any photos Friday night & not enough Saturday - Thankful that I did not attend college with Cole Van Houten (we'd still be in Jail) - Visiting with Becky Birdsong Friday night by the pool - Trying to figure out Amy's "youthful secret" - The pure joy of renewing old friendships - Getting to know classmates for the very 1st time--40 years later - THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES!!

Due to a special request, we are ok in Houston.  Hurricane was a little scary but we made it through safely.  I wish I could say that for all my neighbors but still there are many with no power.

Ricky - you're no Mary Shults, but the "Briarpatch" was beautiful nevertheless.  Besides, only goats graze in the briarpatch, not those uppity sheep!  (I, too, sat on your side of Mrs. Newton's class in 10th grade until I found out Southern colleges didn't require a foreign language for admission.)  

You said we were still getting 100 hits a day on the web site, shouldn't there be more discussion here with that much traffic?  Don't just lurk -- share!

Briarpatch

Thanks Lanny, but do you know who was really responsible for the success of this reunion?  Everybody.  Every committee member, every attendee, every poster to the website (yours included), every email sent, every phone call made, Kathryn Underwood’s insistence that we could meet the Hotel minimum contract, and pulling out her attorney trump card to keep us from being over charged at the end, Mike Austin starting the blog on News of All Sorts with his “I remember” post, George Reed’s Bill Howard stories that made us glad not to have missed that meeting, Anne Green’s Cows, Bouncin Bob’s,Tom Strueber on the par 4 ninth hole putting his tee shot 8 feet from the pin and Frank Hixon sinking the putt for an eagle, Amy Shulman’s broadcast email, (and daughter - google), Rachel Counts putting her new kitchen project aside to attend, Bonnie Bowen whispering in our ear at the 67 reunion, Bobby Rogers, John Fristoe and Ted Mckee sitting around the pool playing guitars and singing, Peggy Moon in a familiar outfit at the BHS tour, Chris Wall and his vintage muscle car at the Junior Varsity, Mike Chase sending the Myrtle Beach non-alcoholic beer orgy pictures, Tricia Gaston tracking everything from phone call and email updates to registrations all in the middle of a move, Marsha Parham saying a prayer for us, Kathryn’s DVD, Linda Saye taking and posting over 300 pictures, Ben Jones handing out Kleenex, Sandy and John and Bobby  in familiar poses from our yearbook (orchestrated by David Dyer), Mike Robert’s son marrying Alana De La Garza from Law and Order fame, Tricia’s contribution of priceless “back in the day memorabilia, Jane’s picture of a bevy of Briarcliff beauties meeting with Governor Lester Maddox,  Coach Hambrick and Ben Jones riding around in a golf cart after all these years, OMG, the grade school pictures contributed by several classmates, Gail McCorvey at the tour in her Majorette uniform,  John Fristoe cracking everybody up all the time, the timeless grace of Molly and Ricky King, Lynne Barfield’s reaction when Becky Birdsong walked into our meeting for the first time, the support and advice from Turk McKinnon, David Davis and Betty Corcoran, a shout out from our elders Jay Moon (65), Horace Goza and Dan Corky Corcoran (63) Phil Houston (65) Turk, Bill Peake and Betty Corcoran (67) Bob Emerson, Farrell Barton and Barbara Gerber (69), Linda Bell posting from Bangla somewhere or other, on her way to Cambodia, the job the decorating group (everyone but me) did Saturday night, David Dyer talking to  Sarah Palin about the reunion, Jim Mozley trying to explain the Myrtle Beach trip to his 16 year old son. Does this look familiar Mary Shults? And that is the proverbial tip of the iceberg…..

 

I guess we would best be judged by some of our earliest critics.  According to the report card from Frank, Ray, Cookie, Bettie Lou and Rachel we all get an A+.

 

Ho hum, another perfect score. Much easier than Eudora’s class.  Anne, you were a sheep, I was a goat.

Rick;
    Even though I only went to the Friday night party, you did a bang up job in putting the weekend together.  I was great seeing all the classmates from all the classes in a "different setting" from the way I have been seeing them in the past.  Some of you know what I mean.  As David Bachman said to see our class in great numbers was also wonderful.

I too was a student in  Eudora Newton's Latin class for 2 years.  Besides everyone referring to her as the "Fig",  Linda Bell and I also referred to her as Endora, like the character from Bewitched.  I remember our textbooks were old.   A previous student had written inside the cover of mine:
"Latin is a dead language
As dead as it can be.
First  it killed the Romans
And now it's killing me!"

I remember you, Bruce Sundstrom. You were a fellow Kittredge kid in Mr. Rustin's 7th grade class. At the reunion, Jim Meek and I decided Mr. Rustin was one of the stranger teachers we ever had!

The reunion was wonderful. I am just sorry there was not enough time. I know there were people I never got a chance to speak to and I apologize!  This site is so much fun. The photos are great but even they don't capture how much fun we all had!

I remember nothing about the sheep and the goats in Latin class; nor did I remember Mrs. Newton's name.  I do remember that she broke her arm and was in a cast at least 1/2 of a year.  And a few years later, every once in a while,  I would use a Latin word in the middle of a French sentence.
Thanks Jan, now we know there were 3 in her class!

I remember Latin class.  Do you remember how Mrs. Newton talked about separating the sheep from the goats (as in students)?  And that she told us-rather, reminded us-that her first name, Eudora, meant gift of the gods?

Does anyone know about members of our class who might have been affected by Hurricane Ike?  I was thinking about Phyllis-doesn't she live in Houston???

Rick, you've gotten us addicted to this blog as a way of keeping the connections going!  Have you created a monster for yourself?

Wow I just made the mistake of returning to this addictive web site. I am very impressed with the photo albums and how well everyone looks. I'm also depressed that I didn't connect with so many that were there that i would have liked to. My take-away from the weekend was that my old pals were all comfortable in their own skin, and that they were as interesting as I remembered. I am so pleased to have been part of this esteemed crowd and this joyous event. My best, Jim

Bruce Sundstrom, I can't say I really remember you, but I was in Mrs. Newton's Latin class.  2 years of Caesar's Gallic Wars. 
We probably called her Fig Newton more often than Mrs. Newton.  Can't say I remember any of it, but maybe it helped with French and English.  Did anybody else take Latin; surely there were more than 2 of us in the class!
You missed a great reunion. It was lots of fun.  
Sounds like you're doing great things.

I, too,  hope we will have a follow-up picnic or something before too long.  This was the first I'd heard about it, but I would be able to help organize it.  (While I'm at it, I'll volunteer Becky, too!)  I have more talking to do with everybody, just like Marsha, Susan and others said!  Maybe we'll launch the idea (soon?) at the post-reunion meeting?

You are so right, Marsha.  By the way, folks, the last thing Marsha said to me 40 years ago after school was over, was that she hoped I knew she was taller than me.  The first thing she said last Friday, after 40 long years was, " Hey, Ben, I'm still taller than you."  What a memory!  Drove me to drink!  At least she was kind enough not to mention the bald pate.

There must be some biochemical link that brands our minds with a chemical recall of relationships long past and lets us revisit those warm feelings that never left but just got masked by other, newer, encounters.  You people are branded in my recall and are that unique set of friends that will never leave me.  Some of you date back 52 years, not just 40.  All the way back to Miss Wilder' first grade at old Thomson School.  I was amazed at how absolutely familiar it was to be with you again.  Like a favorite old shoe.  Such chemistry.  Even with a lifetime of experiences between our last encounters I felt so comfortable Friday and Saturday with all of you.  It was like coming home.......

Ann Lombardi, no guarantees on finding Mr. Right but I'll keep my eyes open.  Better send me the specs and let me know whether to send a picture or a balance sheet.  Surely someone our age that loves to travel has some money somewhere!  You and Jan Kubicki were the best lab partners ever.  With your brains and my dissecting skills we had to earn that A.  Dissecting Squalus Epiphelias was, after all,  just cleaning another fish!!

Thanks Rick and Bonnie and everyone else on the committee for stepping out to make this happen.  And Lynn, thanks for the phone call.  

I love you guys!  Bill

I hope we'll have another opportunity to order the DVD.  Also, did anyone pick up my cheerleading uniform after the party Saturday?

     Great to have seen many of y'all at the Friday pool party. Sincerely hope you enjoyed yourselves Saturday night too. Alice Holley Duncan, please give your neighbor a call one day to fill me in on everything I missed, ok?

     Take care & keep in touch. And Bill Bell, I'm counting on you heavily to steer some eligible guys my way. I have just six years to accomplish my goal by my self-imposed deadline. ;-)

Gee Jim, I don't remember rolling your neighbor's yard but Jimmy Lee and Steve Hedge (67) worked at the grocery store and we got a great deal on potty-wad.  Seems like rolling yards was one of the few skills I perfected at Briarcliff.  Guess we'd do better with GPS...we wouldn't have plastered your neighbors yard.  Jan, I think we were in Miss Wilder's first grade class together with Debby Davenport and others.  When they tore down the school I bought the doors to that room from Price Wrecking to have a desk built.  When Richard Dreyfus played a nerd on a Vespa in American Graffiti I felt a strange deja vous.  Looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend.

I'm responding to all the remarks about the preppy clothes we used to wear.  I remember wearing Villager dresses my freshman year in college, but  by the next year my clothes consisted of jeans and tee-shirts (tie-dyed?).  Did anyone else have that experience?  Of course, Emory was a pretty liberal place to be in the hippie days...

When I was searching for my '68 yearbook I found a couple of old cheerleading uniforms packed away.  Naturally, I tried one on.  Well, that didn't work out quite like I had hoped!

Speaking of cheerleading, I hope that everyone will give the hard working reunion committee a huge thank you.  Becky Birdsong and I have attended a couple of meetings (as cheerleaders?) and have been able to see how much work it has taken to get this project launched!  The rest of us are really going to enjoy the fruits of their hard (and mostly fun, I hope) labor!

Andy, thanks for coming to my aid. I know I sometimes forget things, but I really didn't want to start remembering things that didn't happen! One more recollection - and confession - Mrs. Fackler's senior English class. I sat in the back corner (right hand, from my perspective) with Chris Reimer, Ronnie Schunck and (I think) Grayson Williams. I, um, had opinions about the things we discussed that exceeded my knowledge or thoughtfulness. Mrs. F. (gently) wrote something to that effect in my yearbook. Part of it was that my interests were then in science and I thought some of what she got from literature was hooey. But the laugh was on me - I wound up majoring in English! Mrs. Fackler, I'm sorry! Lynne Waller, you're post wasn't sappy. There's been a lot of pain in most of our lives, along with the joy. I'm (involuntarily) divorced after nearly 30 years, spent a couple of recent years "self-under-employed," and am a 10-year prostate cancer survivor (get those PSA tests, guys!). But God is good and I'm determined to see my glass as half-full. (For an exorbitant fee, I'll accept members in the Society of Half-Glassed thinking, www.halfglassedthinking.com, of which I am founder, president, etc., etc.)

I remember the computer dance. It was a project by the student government to raise money for a senior scholarship. I'm not sure whose idea it was, but we raised about $500 or $1000. I believe Rachel Benator received the money. I have no idea what the requirements were for the scholarship. My memory was that everyone was assigned a number and you received a list with 5 numbers on it and had to look around to see who you were matched with. Technology at its best! We were always ahead of our time.

Jan, no rubbish, but (I hope) a genuine compliment - at least from the computer who thought you were potentially the girl of so many of our dreams. (Of course that computer was probably the size of my basement and with less memory than a wristwatch now.) All I can tell you was that we filled out a questionaires, waited for weeks, showed up (the gym) and were given five names based on some sort of "best match." You would have had only five names, but a lot of guys had yours. And, since we all compared lists, a lot of us (guys) sized up the competition, estimated our chances, and went to plan B. So you may not have known how many of us had your name. The recollection is pretty clear - if I had dreamed it, I would have tried for a happier ending. Does no one else remember this? How science was going to make our (dating) lives better? I'm sorry about the misspelling. I lived in south Louisiana for nine years where there are many Thibadeauxs, but I knew there were different spellings and so I used the spelling from your senior picture in the yearbook. (It's really hard when a perfectionist does everything right and still gets it wrong. Sigh.) I've seen some comments about rolling yards and have a story to add. We woke up one Sunday morning and couldn't imagine why someone had rolled the house next door - a nice couple with two preschoolers. It seems that Bill Bell and some others from band decided once to roll my yard one Saturday night, but they parked several houses away and didn't walk back far enough. It was some days before we figured out what had happened. The rollers couldn't figure out why I wasn't upset. But once it all came out, it was kind of nice from my perspective - I got some attention, but none of the cleanup. (As I write this, I am grateful that I now live really, really far away. If I lived "in range," I think I'd keep the story to myself.)

Hi everyone!

It has been really fun reading all the entries on this site. Sincerely hope there'll also be lots of you at the pool party this Friday night! Wish I could make the Saturday party, but I'll be traveling. I know you all will have a blast.

In case I don't get a chance to see you in person & you're curious about what's been going on with Lombardi, here's a quick summary of my colorful life since the '60's & '70's:

--Got a Master's in Teaching English as a 2nd Language/Linguistics & went on to teach in Switzerland, Korea, Germany, & the USA.

--After teacher burn-out, ventured into the business world as an international vacation travel agent & tour guide. Later subbed on an as-needed basis for Clark Howard on his "Friday Flyer" AM 750 WSB radio show until his national syndication.

__In the '90's, started a 2.5 person leisure travel agency [we are The Trip Chicks of Passport to Adventure Inc.] with a friend.

I've been keeping up with-and enjoying- this site from time to time, but when I saw my name I finally felt I had to respond.  What computer dance were you talking about, Jim? I don't remember anything about that (and it sounds like I should have!).  Well, your memory of it made my day  until it occurred to me that it sounds like flattering (but crazy) rubbish!!  Oh, one other thing, my name is spelled Thibadeau-I think Ricky Corless had tried to change the spelling at one time on this website...

It's especially fun to read contributions from my REALLY old former classmates, those of us who went to W.D. Thompson, as well as Briarcliff.  I look forward to checking out the website, Arthur.

Ben, I cant believe it was you! Pretty cool to hear a confession 40 years later. Tee Hee --My father was so upset --there were "donuts" in that yard.   - Where was I? I dont remember young life, was it coed? (I believe coed must be a 60's term--haven't used in a long time). And Gay, I guess it is time to confess to our rolling escapes. This has been so fun reading and reminiscing--looking forward to playing 18 again as David Dyer said in his email...

Ah...how lucky was I to live right around the corner from those cute Corless brothers??  

This website is like catnip...I can't help myself!

Thought y'all would be interested to see what Druid Hills HS has done with Baron's Hall.  I would love to know the whole story of how Ms. Counts pulled the shields out of the dumpster there - I imagine she  put up quite a fuss - but it seems that DHHS has embraced the tradition.  They have the story of Baron's Hall, photos of the shields (a few embellished, a few new ones) and photos of the past few years of ceremones.  At Druid Hills the Baron sits on a throne and wears a cape!

Random memories: No one has mentioned that "computer dance" (match.com version 0.001)? We filled out some sort of forms and weeks later we arrived to find out that all the guys' ideal date was Jan Thibedeau. Not many will share this one, but several of us were at the state science fair in Athens when Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed in Memphis. We were staying in an, um, inexpensive motel in a part of town. I recall Mrs. Prescott being pretty worried (probably a lot more than she let on). Any other veterans of 5th period chemistry remember how Mr. Abernathy's demonstrations would work until our period?

Also remember John Fristoe giving me a ride in "Festus" on I85 after school one day.  That car was FAST!  One more memory....the apt. on Delmont Dr. in Buckhead.  How is Tripp doing?  Can't wait to see you and John and hear some music.

OK....I am remembering some other semi-interesting stuff while I am sitting here....

Weejuns - surgically altered to make slip on sandals...that was cool.  Trying to go the entire day without socks without getting caught...a major guy-related accomplishment. 

The stairwells in D Hall...I used to hang out with Carol Allen ('67)  and talk (yes talk). 

The Waffle House at Claremont and I-85.  A waffle, 2 eggs and milk...$1.35.

And for all of the Baron football crowd...the initiation rite of Atomic Balm (think IcyHot) in the jock strap and limberger cheese in the helmet.  You haven't lived until your crotch is on fire and your helmet smells like vomit on a 95 degree August day...OK that was gross...I admit it...but it's all part of the colorfull BHS history.

Does anyone remember The Spot or The Electric Eye?  How about The Comic Book Club?  All teen clubs during our time. 

How about those dances at the LaVista Women's Club.? I remember The Prophets hosting some of those (if your band doesn't have a gig...just throw your own dance!) About the 3rd time the Synagogue yard next door was covered with beer cans that was the end of that....ha ha!

Lord have mercy, I haven't thought of this stuff in ages!

OK, so someone asked about me rounding up "the Prophets"....here's the good news and the bad news....

Bad news....I haven't seen nor spoken with Dennis Barnes nor Steve Hill since the early early 70's...I don't even know if they are alive.   Clyde McClintock, who was our drummer is still kicking around somewhere as I heard from him indirectly a couple of years ago.

The good news...both John Fristoe and i will be at the reunion and as I understand it John is bringing a couple of his acoustic guitars...so maybe just maybe we can do a little "Prophets" unplugged. 

I can be easily bribed with Kettle One or Maker's Mark. 

See y'all at the pool!

alumni of w.d. thompson elementary (actually "thomson" with no "p" may be the original/correct spelling, much to my own surprise) may be interested to visit a site put up by doug stott, who was i think 3 yrs ahead of us. http://wdthomson.blog4ever.com/blog/index-203335.html click on "diaporama" and then "lecture automatique" and you'll see a slide show of 30+ pix of the school's demolition in 1976. i think we always regarded the original building as an ancient structure even back in the 50's. yet the school first opened in 1929, so it "only" stood for 47 years before being torn down. (and... how old are we...?) doug has said it took him a while to get around to having the film developed, and it didn't fare well in storage, so you'll have to pardon the occasional overlay of organic growth.

I remember Festus.
That was one fine "55 Chevy.
327 magnificent cubic inches of displacement from a naturally aspirated 4 barrel Holly carburetor.  Well that's what produced the classic torque and acceleration in our era.
Also rolled and pleated interior if I remember correctly.
Are you still in touch with Fristo?

- “Grub Day” our precursor to casual Fridays

- Gas was only $.25

Car tag. If I remember correctly, one car was "it" and the other cars tried to catch him - block him so that he couldn't move.  Hence the power easement was a discovered escape route. It was always played in Leafmore  because it was a  large, but contained space.

I just finished looking through my 1967 year book (can't find 1968). The things people write!  Sandy wrote: Someday when you are old and ancient - about 40 - you will look back at this page and remember all we've done - or maybe it's all the things we shouldn't have done...one of these days when we are both married and have hundreds of children - get our your annual and relive our high school days but never forget me. And Amy wrote: I know we'll be friends for a long time after this and if it seems that all the silly things we've done become insignificant  - don't let them them, because they all amount to something many people don't have and that's a friend like you.
This made me realize that after 40 years we still remember and we still treasure all those days we had together at BHS. Great times - Great People. We Rock. Can't wait!!!

Lynne Barfield assisting me with the writing of a poem in Mrs. Jones' advance composition class.  We borrowed the lyrics from " The Way You Do The Things You Do" by the Temptations.  Mrs. Jones was clueless.

Gary Brooks speaking "fluent"  Spanish in Mr. Powell's (Fred's) class.

Beating Decatur in basketball -- David Dyer shut down their star whose street name was "Cool Breeze"

Mrs. Fackler's English class

Losing to Lakeside in football -- even baloons didn't help

Losing to Lakeside in basketball

Beating Lakeside to win the first DeKalb County volleyball championship

Mickey Pitts' father shouting from the stands that he was going to buy Mickey a "G.O.T." (rather than a GTO) if we won a particular basketball game -- I can't remember the game

Being behind Gordon High School by a bunch at their place at halftime.  Coach Hambrick not speaking a word to the team at the half.  Winning the game somehow.

Mike Chase's whistle (loud as hell)

Having Mrs. Chase as a substitute teacher

I have loved reading all of this, but I am wondering- I must have been the original "clueless", because the guys seemed to have been having way more fun than the girls, judging by the "Spring Break" ice tea drinkers. Girls, were we sheltered beyond belief ? Instead of Daytona like the guys, we were probably the ones trying to make tissue flowers out of the rolls of toilet paper that didn't quite make it into the trees.

OK, this is going to be a bit sappy.  I was talking to Jan O'Shields last night (she lives in Boston). We were discussing how most of these entries are peppered with good news.  But for those of you who are reading these entries and thinking "well, my life hasn't been such good news" I want you to know that underlying all of these stories is disappointment, sadness, difficult challenges, and even tragedy.  But when you think of 1968, you emotionally go back to the time when your greatest concern was a decent grade or a good hair day.  Those were good times.  So, please, if you are reluctant to contact us or come to the reunion because of a not so perfect life, know that all of us are with you.  So, come.  Reminisce.  Enjoy stepping back in time.  I don't think you'll regret it.  And we'd all love to see you.

Larry, How in the world are you? I was the guy who lost a day. We locked the door when we played the music over the intercom. I had access because as VP of the student body and Chief Nerd in charge, you may remember that I led the pledge every morning of our senior year (when I made it in time). So we put in the tape which you, Terry Simmons, and your cohorts provided and let it rip. They did a shut down of the office and held us in there. I was released to the custody of my dad, who I remember came in to school, interrupted from some meeting and dressed in his power blazer. He carried on the serious veneer of being concerned about our crime until we got in the car, and I explained the whole deal. He got it, and I got a day off. Still a vivid memory of grace. Jim

And, I love the confessions (although I have no idea what Lynne is talking about).  I remember the mysterious music on C hall!  And, Jane, that's lasted how many years?

Does anyone remember C Hall being evacuated because of a chemistry accident? Sorry about that!
Rock music being played in C Hall during class changes and the ceiling being ripped out looking for the music? (they never learned it was two speakers in lockers balanced to sound like it was coming out of the ceiling.)
One morning the song was Earl the Pearl and the 4 Jumbos?  Someone else missed a day of school for that.

George:  You climbed the water tower?  I couldn't even climb to the top of Adams Stadium.  And Phyllis, thanks for re-naming me Ben Jone (see her post below).  You never were very strong at possessives.  I ask the committee to amend my name tag accordingly.  And, if anyone rolled my yard, it was not for the reason mentioned.  I was always the "dumpee".  Poor me.

Okay eveyone,  for all the dumb stuff we did in highschool I think everyone will remember this one... Dekalb Co. water tower on Clairmont Rd. with "JANE" painted on it.  George climbed it with a paint can and brush(no little spray can) and did his art work along with GR& JW. Later that yr. Jimmy Whitehead also added his initals with his girlfriends.  It stayed there for yrs. until Dekalb Co. repainted the tower. Thankfully no one got hurt or arrested!!

We'll never tell....however, if any one of us had recently been "dumped" ('60s word) the dumper became the yard of choice.  I don't ever remember you being on that list, but some of your cohorts probably were.

This site is a blast to read. Everyone seems so excited about the reunion. Even though I was not at Briarcliff for long I have enjoyed reading about former classmates. I hope to stop by the pool party before going away for the holiday weekend. By the way Miss Spencer from Algebra is my next door neighbor. She is still a talker, sorry Anne...but what a wonderful friend she has become over the years!

Great response Ben and Mike. I shared it with James. He then asked about the pint that Robert Dodge was sipping. Of course I suggested that it appeared to me to be bottled sweet tea. He didn't buy that. But he did think that I had 'cool' buddies that would respond in my defense. Regards

Concerning the beer cans stacked on the wall in the above pictures, as I've tried to explain to others, we were "green" before it was cool.  We picked up the litter on the highways and beaches and donated the proceeds to the local humane society in honor of a dog that was in the wrong lane at the wrong time on the wrong highway.

Of course I explained that Ben and Mike and Cam drank it all. Not sure that he bought it. Regards to all. Jim

Where did this 40 years go? We are still in Boston since 1973, where my husband of 39 years is still on the radio doing the morning show at Magic 106.7 [air name and all that anyone knows him by is Mike Addams]. Never a dull moment as we are constantly involved with concerts , charities and promotions. Otherwise,we are flying back and forth to London where our daughter,Christy, and her British musician husband, Jake, live. She is a writer and has a theatre company....no grandchildren as yet!  We were quite thrilled when she was invited to perform for Queen Elizabeth's birthday celebration at Buckingham Palace. So sorry to be missing the reunion, but we will be in London until after Labor Day. Thanks to the committee for such a great web site.
Take care, Jan O'Shields Kulz

Forty years.  So long ago and at the same time like yesterday.  I have worked for Turner Broadcasting for 26 years now and as Rick reminded me, in many ways it is like I was back in the gym hooking up microphones, lights and getting ready for an assembly or play.  Now my events range from a Braves game to the Super Bowl with some concerts and political events thrown in.  I am married with two sons.  The oldest works in the IT field and my youngest is finishing up Pharmacy School.  I live in Kennesaw but own the home that I grew up in from the fifth grade at Kittridge.  Look forward to seeing everyone.

It is going to be a great weekend.  I remember some of us girl scouts(yes--over 20 of us--we even dared to wear our uniforms one day) who had taken a self defense course, tossing the  guys to the ground-- in seconds--in the senior courtyard. I remember the fun of football games with the drill team (and hard work) and commeradery we had--(all the bus rides to the games). Pat Blanchard's frustrations at us and visa versa at practices with the band (we had a great band!). We had great music (my kids loved my old 33's), fun times and events, good friends.  I remember the difficult things too, Viet Nam  and conflict of the times.  We are blessed to live in such a country where our freedom was bought and is maintained with such great cost.  I remember my brother Johnny riding Mary Schultz's  horse as the Baron--he knew nothing about horses or riding but somehow it worked. --- I remember much mud parking across the streetof BHS, I remember graduation day and the poignant thought that we were all going away in different directions--happy day but sad to me also.  All in all, Briarcliff was a great place to spend 5 years.   Thanks for all your efforts to pull this together for us all.

My sister graduated from Briarcliff in 1963, with the Godlewski-Goza-Corcoran generation. My own connection with your class is that I took Penny Calhoun to the BHS 66 junior (ring) prom in 1965 (though I did not graduate from Briarcliff); I also attended your graduation ceremonies that warm June night in 68.

WOW Ben,   I remember the red bench at WD Thompson school. It was in front of the principal's (Mrs. Harris) office. In the 2nd grade I had to sit on it for eating candy Easter eggs that had been "taken" from a classmates desk....Oh the shame!!  Everyone that walked by knew you were waiting for Mrs. Harris to talk to you. You sat there with your head hung low. I think I'm still emotionally scarred from it!!!

Susan, to make the flowers, fold the Kleenex in half lenthwise.  Then accordian pleat it from one short end to the other short end.  Put a bobby pin down the middle of the now approx 1" wide folded tissue, and tear the edges off.  Then begin unfolding each separate layer, pulling it toward the center, where the bobbi pin has been pulled tight.  And no, I have not made a single one of these since H.S. but I made so many I will probably never forget how!

OK, Lynn.  You and Pat may have shared bordering bassinets, but he never ran over a mail box and three trash cans while triple dating with David Dyer and Randy Campbell in my dad's station wagon with a rear-facing third seat.  Two flat tires.  Your dad picked you up in his bathrobe, had a flat tire on the way home, and, at his insistence (and implied threat) we never dated again.  Alas, but we all ended up OK.  And, by the way Mary Shultz, I just read your message. Get your self to this reunion.  You were the glue of our class.  The one who kept us all together and whom we were all glad to see every day.

Alright...I can top anyone in this class who went to anyone's first, second, or third birthday party and has pictures to prove it.  Pat Fox and I were born on the same day in the same hospital (Crawford Long) and our bassinets were side by side in the nursery!  Ok, I made up the bassinet part, but we really were born on the same day.  And at that time, my parents lived in the Virginia/Highlands area and I don't know where Pat lived.  I think our fathers casually knew each other and got into a fight over who had the cutest first born child in the nursery.  My dad won.  So if anyone can claim to know another classmate inutero, then I'll relinquish the "Known Each Other the Longest" trophy.

Well done, Mike Austin.  You may not remember that, while I was rooting for Molly, I was her sister's escort that night.  I just went deep into storage and found my '68 Shield.  Reading both the text and the many notes written by friends, I was reminded what an extaordinary group of people we were all priviledged to grow up with!  I cannot wait to renew the wonderful friendsips we all shared.  BTW ( I have learned some of the new computer lingo), I hope I never wrote anything as embarrasing in anyone's yearbook as some did in mine!  Just kidding, we were all optimistic, guided and convinced each of us could make the world a better place.  So much for trying.  But don't quit, it still could happen.  Thanks to all of the committe, to Rick(y) for the web page, and to our great fortune to remember one another so kindly.

John F. Kennedy was shot. 

 

I remember Carol Morrison telling me [at BHS during an extra curricula event in the gym] that Martin Luther King, Jr. had been shot.

 

I remember Molly Myers running over to hug her sister when her ‘little sister’ won MISS BRIARCLIFF in 1968.

 

I remember Miss Spencer telling me in Algebra Class that BOY’S HAIR could not touch the collar! She talked the entire period.

 

I remember Mr. Clack holding 4 quarters in his hand and rolling one at a time from front to back while he lectured.

 

I remember HAVING TO REGISTER for the DRAFT and I was still in High School.

I remember going to Daytona Beach in the summer of 1967 with John Fristoe, Mike Austin, and Gene Hardeman.  We listened to Magical Mystery Tour, Are You Experienced, and Disraeli Gears from Cream.  Lots of the 1967 grads were there too.

I remember Phil Denney (RIP) got busted for having a beer in his hand and we had to pitch in to bail him out.  I remember going to "the Pier" and dancing the night away.

I remember Coach Hixon and Coach McDaniels giving me ongoing grief my senior year because my hair covered my ears....

I remember seeing Alan North, aka The Chief for the first time as an 8th grader.  Didn't it seem like he owned the place...ha ha!

I remember Coach Minyard could hit your helmet with a rock from 30 yards away...made my ears ring.  I remember having to wrestle Coach Black every day...that was pleasant..not!

I remember how much we ALL HATED THE LAKESIDE folks and their tacky purple and gold.

Hey Bill Peake!  Drop me a line home boy!

Congrats on your 40th reunion. No, I wasn't in your class but I did know many of you.... especially the basketball players. David Dyer, Ben Jones, and some  of you may remember me as manager of the basketball team (Jobko).  For some unknown reason I was given that nickname. It was probably because I wore a Falcons jersey with Bill Jobko's number (is he still around). You ought to have a great time and judging from some of the posts, we may need a few hall monitors.

I'm Betty Corcoran's brother (she was '67, I was '63).  The class of 1963 was the first to graduate after attending all 5 years at Briarcliff.  (The class of 1962 was the first to graduate from Briarcliff, but they attended 8th grade at Druid Hills HS and then four years at Briarcliff).

There was some discussion of the school colors on this site.  From the beginning, the school colors were blue and silver.  Our first yearbook had those colors on the cover.  (Maroon and gold may have been the Druid Hills colors?)

I'm currently living a little far to make the reunion:  Bangladesh, and moving to Cambodia in Sept.  I'm working for US Aid at the Embassy and it's hopping here in the third world.  Actually it's a really fun second career after I spent my first 30 yrs in D.C. working for the NEA, Smithsonian, and Inst for Museum and Library Services.  Working now for the poorest of the poor is quite a change, and for a break you get to hop off to Bangkok or Nepal and hike in the Himalayas, 45 min. away.  Bali for Christmas.   

Does anybody do Facebook?  It's so high school, I figured we'd all be doing it.  Well, I've got more info and pictures there if anybody wants to look me up.

It's been great catching up on everybody through these messages.  Tell the rest to keep 'em coming!  I am sorry I'll miss everybody in person, and thanks to all of you who are working hard on it.  

Linda Bell (yep, still Bell. Never married but with a wonderful signif. other now.)

The reunion looks like alot of fun -- great job of putting it together. Life is great in the State of Washington so the distance will keep me from attending but I will be thinking of all of you. 40 years sure went by in a hurry !!!

40 years...hard to imagine.  I was glad to hear that the school board decided not to sell the schools to Sembler, I would hate for our reunion to become a wake.

I can't wait to see everyone!  I live on Lake Lanier in Gainesville-have been here for 22 years-but still have lots of family in Atlanta and Decatur so I am there quite a bit.  I am no longer married, but I have great kids:  two sons and a daughter, all in college.   I stay busy substitute teaching, volunteering with Hospice and the Humane Society, ringing handbells at my church,  taking Zumba (Latin dance) and pilates classes and traveling as much as possible.   I spent my  working years as a real estate agent and later as a travel agent, but that was quite a while ago. 
Thanks to everyone involved in getting this party started! I've enjoyed talking to old Briarcliff friends about the reunion and more importantly, about how much the high school years meant to us.  I really hope we'll have a good turnout!

Ricky, you did such a great job on this site! Do you want to do the same for us? It was great reading about everyone.  If you know anyone in the class of '69, send me their email address. I have become the "Keeper of all emails for the Class of '69".  We are planning our reunion for sometime in late April or early May of next year. You are all welcome to come.

Hi everyone: 
I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU for the great responses that we have had in the last week. I can’t say “thank you” enough. The Reunion Committee has worked very hard to pull this together and to make this a big SUCCESS and the very BEST Briarcliff reunion!! It all started last August when several of us from Class of ’68 were at the Class of ‘67’s Friday Night Get Together for their 40th reunion and I started talking to several of our classmates about putting our 40th Class Reunion together. I was surprised at how many people offered to help and were excited!! The Friday Night Get Together that the Class of ’67 had was an absolute blast! It was so much fun seeing people that we hadn’t seen in 40 years and rekindling old friendships, not only with classmates from 1967, but also 1966 and 1968! We had our first meeting in November and we have been meeting every month since then. In fact, they end up being mini-reunions and we have so much fun talking about the things that we did, etc. Our reunion committee consists not only of myself, but Rick Corless, Lynne (Barfield) Waller, Jane (Wallace) and George Reed. Billy Pinckard, Bobby and Kathy (Reynolds) Poole, Lynn Farmer, Tricia Gaston, and Kathryn (Underwood) Hill. 
 
So, now this is what I need from everyone. First, please send us information and stories about what you have been doing since graduation, send pictures of you and your family! We want to hear your stories and see pictures. Also, send us pictures that you have from elementary and high school. We will also be putting together a slide show for the reunion, so PLEASE send pictures, etc. 
 
Also, if you are planning on staying at the hotel and haven’t registered yet PLEASE do so ASAP. Blocks of rooms are being held at a discounted price, but only til the end of July and then they will start releasing them.  RSVP for the events that you are planning on attending! There will be a tour of our old Alma Mater on Saturday morning, August 30th. Just in case you haven’t heard, there is a chance that the school and stadium could be demolished and this may be the last chance that you get to “walk the halls”, see your old classrooms, the gym (or what used to be the gym), our Senior Courtyard, the cafeteria. I will be your “tour guide” for this event and you will be amazed to say the least about what you will see!!!
 
Look at our “Lost and Found” section of the website. If you see someone’s name there and you know how to contact them, PLEASE do so and let them know about the reunion. Or, you can send us their information and we will contact them!! We still have a lot of people that we can’t find and really need help in locating these people.
 
Keep checking our website for updated news and event information. And, THANKS again to everyone for helping to make our 40th Class Reunion a big success and LOTS OF FUN!!!
 
See you at the reunion!!!

Hi, everyone.  I test software for a living and I have examined a lot of web sites in my time and there's something "fishy" about the www.briarcliff68.com site.  Everyone looks so prosperous, good looking, and thin!  I am starting to get suspicious.  And all these retirees...jeez.  I am still a captive in cubicle land in corporate America and retirement is still a dream.

Wow, has it been 40 years?  Thanks Lynne for letting me know about this and Ricky and team for all your work to make this happen.  I married Janet Martens (BHS '67) when I was a senior at Georgia Tech and she has blessed me with 36 wonderful years and a terrific son who is now married and flying 747s for Cathey Pacific in Hong Kong.  We have one Grandson.  We have lived in Peachtree Corners for 30 years.  Janet job shares as a kindergarten paraprofessional and I sell greenhouses.  Hope to make the reunion.  Cheers!!

Hi, all! Linda Saye Karr sent me this link; how wonderful to know this is happening and to see names that--surprisingly--I recognize after all these years. I won't be joining you for the event; I live in Anchorage, Alaska, now and have for the past 12+ years. I haven't been "outside" (as we refer to anyplace not Alaska!) in several years. Love it here in the Last Frontier. 
Have a wonderful reunion and hoist one for me! Will be thinking of you all and checking back on the web site.

This website is great!! Hope our class gets this going as well. Alice Cowan McDougald forwarded it to me. We were in the class of '69. It's funny how many DeKalb County grads we come in contact with, I even married one 34 years ago, Druid Hills class of "66. (I still get mad when he calls us the "Briarcliff Bunnies".) Oh well, I'm sure none of you guys remember me, but I do remember a lot of you and just wanted to say hi and go to the reunion, cause you might not make the next one. Sounds like a lot of fun!

Wow!  Has it really been 40 years?  Hello to all my friends responsible for so many wonderful memories!  I am now living in Phoenix, Arizona.  I have been married for almost 39 years and have two wonderful children.  My daughter is 33 and my son is 28.  I taught at the Atlanta Area School for the Deaf, for three years, after graduating from Georgia State University in for three years and then became a stay at home mom for 18 years. After moving to Phoenix 13 years ago, I began teaching multiply challenged deaf students at the Phoenix Day School for the Deaf.  I have completed two Masters Degrees from Northern Arizona University.  Retirement is no where in sight for me since I love what I am doing!  My husband, Jack, works at the Phoenix Rescue Mission feeding the hungry and sheltering battered women and their children.  Life is good!

#1 Songs on the radio for the Class of 1968:

'63 - Louie Louie - do ya know the real lyrics?
'64 - You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling - Oh! the angst of breaking up.
'65 - Satisfaction - Stones rule!
'66 - Good Vibrations -  Cali? No way...it's Daytona Beach baby!
'67 - Respect - You ladies still sing along with this one...doncha?
'68 - Heard It Through the Grapevine - Marvin Gaye at his best.....

There were Doors, Beatles, Jimi, Otis, JB, Byrds, Temps, what a mixed bag of American rock, British invasion, and good old R & B.   Slow dancing at the sock hops.  The FourMore, The Prophets, Sweet Younguns, Doo & the Didits, garage parties in the summer time...aaaah the memories....

This is Peggy's brother. Heard about your reunion from Rick and just wanted to say HELLO to everyone. I think I know about as many Class of 68'ers as I know from my own class (65). Been overseas for the past 30+ years..... living in Dubai, UAE since 97 so I don't run into many Briarcliff alumni's and haven't visited the old homestead in quite a while, but I suppose once a Baron.... always a Baron. Y'all enjoy the reunion.... it'll be an eye-opener... and lots of fun.

Funny how things happen.  We invited our new neighbors to dinner Saturday night.  The dinner conversation took several twists and turns and Jennifer (the girl part of neighbors)  said her father went to Briarcliff (we had not been talking about Briarcliff, it just came up).  Jennifer is Jennifer Goza, daughter of Horace Goza (class of 64, I believe) and niece of Faye Goza (class of 67).  

Got a story of your own?  Why not share it!
