Comments:

Has it really been that long ago since we graduated? I have only made it back to Sioux City 1 time in the past 12 years. After graduating college in Quincy IL, I started working in St. Louis (first as a sales tax auditor, then as a consultant at Arthur Andersen). After 8 years in St. Louis, I took a job with Cardinal Health (for 12 years) and now with KPMG for the past 3 years, both in Columbus, OH. I have 2 daughters from my first marraige that live in St. Louis (Heather 21, and Hollie 13). I got remarried 6 years ago to Jennifer. Our kids together are two huge dogs and a cat.

School Story:

Memories, nothing more than memories. Let's start with Dykstra, Stokes and myself taking a road trip to a Sioux Falls basketball game with Debbie Simoni, Jan Bullock and Robyn Calvert and stopping at USD on the way back. Next, Prom night at the Holiday Inn (sorry Meridith that I wasn't the best date that night, too much cheap wine and thanks Bob Duncan for providing me even more beverages). Next let's talk about the parties at the Mumford house (Thanks Karen for being a great hostess, did you ever get the car out of the yard? Wasn't it Mike Clark's car that we lifted up into the yard?). Next, indoor baseball practices during spring because Sioux City is too cold and wet at that time of year to have baseball practice outdoors (however for track practice it didn't seem to matter), and summer baseball trips in Coach Morrison or Coach Duncan's van and listening to the 8-track tapes of the great 70's rock and roll bands such as The Eagles (and I can remember some of us helping them paint a house that summer for what had to be considered slave labor). And by the way, I have to say the Senior Musical cast party was quite wild, and I never knew some of you cast members were that crazy. I can also remember in our Sophmore year hanging out at Nancy Torgerson's with several of you for the Super Bowl and watching my Raiders destroy (I believe it was) Nancy's Vikings. I can't brag much the past few years on my Raiders, however, didn't the Vikings make the playoffs this past year? Let's add in one of my favorite times which was Friday nights during football season and extended to Saturday nights during basketball season hanging out a El Fredo's (sp?) watching the sports highlights for the night and cheering for North and booing for West and then watching the Killer Bees, Coneheads, Wild and Crazy Guys and all the great charactors of the early years of Saturday Night Live. I have to throw in Brian bouncing the basketball 5 times before every freethrow (let's see, 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, watch the lips) and getting our fishing poles confiscated by Mrs. Mounts during the Heelan game. I also will give Revolution some major cudo's. Let's add in the Lit class assignment which introduced me to Rocky Raccoon which was great too. I will add more later, maybe even throw someone under the bus (like Stokes).

Faith Hill (Jennifer) and Tim McGraw (me) getting all dressed up for the Cattle Baron's Ball, a charitable event for cancer. All I was missing were my spurs (and as Jim Floyd informed me, my horse too).
