Well, dwelling here in Texas Harriet & I really haven't kept up our class friendships .

Thanks to Bill & his mastery of the website , it's enabled us to interact have fun & keep up with our classmates . Cornelia Tavares Gugale is one I have kept up with & thanks to the last reunion (50th) I have interaction with a lot more classmates & Watsonville friends thru facebook & Email .
