Do you have Siblings that attended FUHS? If yes, what are they up to and where do they live?

Beverly Dahlstedt, semi-retired teacher living in Castro Valley, CA She travels a lot and grows dahlias

What is the biggest thing you would do differently if you went back to your time at FUHS?

Be less concerned about pier pressure and image. Try out for cross country.

Who was your favorite teacher?

Barton Redfern comes in first place. Val Linde taught us how to write, and I thank her for that. Couldn't say she was a favorite at the time.

Famous or Interesting People you have met?

Lowell Thomas in a lift line at Alta, Utah in 1967, I think. A fraternity brother of mine, Ed Pope, got busted in the Soviet Union for spying 15 or 20 years ago. Then he got cancer and they let him go. So he was famous for 15 minutes after I knew him, if that counts. He used to brew his own beer at the house. Now he's a motivational speaker for conservatives, I think.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Putter around the house a bit. Walk my dog, Chevy. Drink beer and chat with my buddies at the Wedgwood Ale House in Seattle. Play Acey Ducey with a neighbor friend.

What do you do to relax?

Mostly, the stuff above. But an occasional nap is nice.

What would we be surprised to know about you?

I discovered underachievement when I was in the Navy. It has served me well over the years. I figured out last year that I had not been outside the United States and Canada for 42 years. 42 years! That's ridiculous. So I'm making up for it now.

Have you ever been honored for something?

When I worked for Boeing, I used to get a lot of those at-a-boy letters.
(Little pellets from the bosses). I could cash in the points for waffle makers, clock radios, jackets, and gadgets. This is big time shit for an underachiever.

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?

Steve Frates and I enjoy a long term correspondence and occasional visit.
Barbara Statkus and I make a point of writing every 20 years or so.

Where have you traveled? Countries/Cities?

In 2014 I went to Leonardtown, MD, Sun Valley, ID, Fullerton, CA, the six countries of Central America, Prague, Czech Republic, Hvar, Croatia, southeast Alaska, Yosemite and Kona, Hawaii

When was the last time you belly laughed?

Probably yesterday. It doesn't take much.

Anything else you would like us to know about you?

I look forward to seeing you all at the reunion.
