Hey Bev, good to see your post on the board.  Wondered how the CO winter had gone.  We had a pretty mild winter in the Anchorage, punctuated by VERY cold spells.  The rest of the state was pretty normal, cold to very cold.  The area where our cabin is located was 30 to 50 below most of the winter, and got a lot of snow, with 3 feet still on the ground, as of last weekend. 

Every time we'd get a warm spell in Anchorage, the cold would all go south and to the east coast.  Man, they got hammered.  We were jealous of all of the snow that they were getting ;)

Brian, hope you had some good ski's for your crazy winter.

And, you're right Bev, 30 deg (above) in south TX is COLD.  When we first moved up to Alaska, we traveled back to TX for Christmas one year.  I brought my Arctic gear down, to show everyone what we wore.  A blue norther passed through, and I wore my gear, and felt like I was freezing.  The humidity just killed the insulating ability of the goose down.  Then, when we went home, the goose down had soured, and stank so badly that I had to trade it in :(  Honest!  That's no Texas story.

It seems that a person can get acclimated to to the dry cold up here, but don't think it's possible to get acclimated to the wet cold on the TX gulf coast.

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter, and spring.

I like snow, but in small doses. Some people just acclimate better than others. I'm not one of them. The humidity down here keeps our wrinkles plumped up so we don't look so bad. It was awfully cold in Academy last night...down to 40... the 39 mile an hour winds didn't help either. I'm home now in the humidity. Beverly, Larry , Bryan hope you can come down this way sometime soon and thaw out. We would all love to see you again.

I was just thinking about her the other day. She said she only had about 2 years. I hope she was able to do everything she wanted to. Let us know about the service when you hear something. Thank you.

No services are planned for Gloria Owens Lyons per her wishes.  We will post an email from her son, Jon, as soon as I get his approval.  She was living in Boston to be closer to him and family/grandchildren...more to come soon.  sad

That is sad news but I am glad his pain is over. thank you for telling us George. I have good memories of all of us growing up together.... You, Bobby, Janet and me. I remember the day he told us he was engaged. We were at his house... sitting on the couch. We started singing "Going to the Chapel".

Stepping over into eternity is a big thing. We all have that to look forward to. Rest in peace Bobby. We will see you again on the other side.

George thanks for letting us know the sad news. I was unaware of his retiring from the Navy, he did so at my same rank. God bless.

Bobby and I got in soooo much trouble back in 2nd and 3rd grade, we gave our teachers fits.  Mrs. Longbreak, our 3rd grade teacher vowed that we would never be in he same class together again. And we never were till 11th grade shop class.  Rest easy my friend...

Don't know if everyone has heard but Harry Chapin died last week. I will make arrangements so there will be a memorial service for him. Any of you who live nearby can come to the service if you like. It will be held at Dickinson First Baptist Church where he was well loved. He became a part of our family and spent a lot of the holidays with us as well as sat with us at church. It will be a rough week now that I'm home from the Caribbean to clean up his apartment and make things squared away. We talked a lot on the phone and I will miss that. I'll let you know more when I find out.

Pamela Welch (Hawthorne)

There will be a memorial service for Harry Chapin on Saturday May the 2nd at 10 a.m. First Baptist Church Dickinson. Corner of 517 in highway 3. Anyone who wishes to attend the service is welcome

George Felkner

Pam, thanks for keeping me informed about Harry.We tried tokeep intouch often but did not succede.

I was in he an of Ad Terry's wedding, I made a special trip just to be there but one of the groomsmen did not show up, so I got to fill in.

We ran into each other in the Alcohol ward at the Alvin Hospital in 1982.

It has been tough loosing Harry and Bobby Steinhause so close together. I am sure I will see them, as Cindy Jordan said, on the other side.

Pamela Welch (Hawthorne)

You are welcome George. We have lost four friends in 15 days. I understand about Bobby. all of us were friends growing up in the same neighborhood. I got to know Harry a lot better in the last few years. I did what I could to help him get back and forth to the doctor and to the grocery store and make him a part of my family with my grandkids and children. He will certainly be missed by his church family as well as mine. Glad we've been able to keep in touch all these years. Let's keep it that way old friend.

You know, i just read Michael's note about Bobby and Mrs. Longbreak's 3rd grade class.  My goodness that was such a long time ago.  I was in that class as well as Cindy Jordan i believe.  Anyone else remember that class?  I may still have a class photo and if i can find it, i will post it.

1968 Classmates -  I haven't posted on here but do enjoy reading your posts.  Ann & I recently attended an exhibit at the Colorado history museum here in Denver.  It was called The 1968 Exhibit and it was great.  Here's a brief description:

In 1968, the death toll in the Vietnam War reached a new high. Riots and demonstrations raged across the country, Apollo 8 orbited the moon, and the nation was transformed by the tragic assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy. The 1960s also charted a dramatic road in America’s pop culture. It was in 1968 that Hair opened on Broadway, “Laugh-In” debuted on television and Johnny Cash gave his famous performance at Folsom Prison.

Developed by the Minnesota History Center, in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, the Chicago History Museum and the Oakland Museum of California, The 1968 Exhibit is an ambitious, multimedia experience that looks at how the events of the year have fueled a persistent, if often contradictory, sense of identity for the people who were there and those who came after.

If it comes to the Houston/Galveston area, I'd recommend you go see it. I hadn't realized the historical and political significance of our senior year.  It brought back so many memories.

Take care -

The TCISD Foundation is seeking nominations for its 10th Hall of Honor Class.  The Class of '67 has had a number of honorees, but none yet from '68.  Surely we have several deserving in our midst; if you know of a worthy candidate, here is a link to the nomination form:

So sorry to just learn of fellow classmate Lawrence Rosenblad's passing away last week. He was such a great guy! Does anyone know what happened to him? Also, another dear sweet childhood friend and classmate of mine at the end of April, Kathy Ann Morton..We were very good friends in Jr. Hi and later our kids went to school and graduated in Santa Fe. ):

07/22/15 09:18 AM #110    


Pamela Welch (Hawthorne)

Yes, we have lost another one of our classmates. Isn't that about 6 since April? It's a shame that it hasn't been acknowledged on our memorial page where we list our lost friends.

Ralph Eugene Delanoix

It is unfortunate that as we travel through our senior years, losing our friends is going to become more frequent.  It is also a blessing to know that there are a lot of us still around and many of you as well as myself are believers and pray warriors.  It is important to keep each other lifted up and our families prayed over to keep them safe and healthy.  Growing up in Texas City with many of you were times I will cherish for the rest of my life.  We built friendships that have lasted a life time and more.  I can only hope that my grand daughter will have an opportunity to be around people like yourselves as she grows up and becomes the fine woman i know she will be.  I had to slip that in as River is the absolute love of my life and I had no idea how having a grand child would change my life forever.  Let me end this with simply saying that there is a place in my heart for everyone of the class of 1968 and I will keep you and your family in my prayers always!

I have not seen a response as to what happened to Larry.  I had not talked to Larry in a long time other than a time or two in this forum.  If anyone can share, please do.

As always,

I was sad to hear that Bubba Rosenblad had died. I had family friends who lived down the alley from him and spent many hours playing with him during the elementary years. We used to walk home together during our Blocker years. Unfortunately grew apart during High School. He always had a ready smile and a kind word, except when I still called him Bubba in Mr. Lombards speech class in Seventh Grade!  He wanted to be Lawrence then.
