Comments:

After graduation, I went to school for awhile before getting married in 64.(divorced in 92) I spent some time throughout my career in Sales, which I enjoyed, but being automotive minded I really wanted to get into something with wheels on it. So I found myself in..........Trucks! Someone told me early on that if I was going to haul something, to haul either liquid or livestock. Liquid runs on and runs off, and livestock walks on and walks off. Well I hauled gasoline for a few years,then I hauled livestock for awhile as an owner -operator, but for the next 30 years I hauled groceries for Safeway-Vons. Retiriing in 06.
It was interesting for the most part experiencing the industry in several arenas. I enjoyed being on the accident review board. That opened my eyes a bit. I was also priveledged to be included in their R&D attempting to develop practical alternative fuels for commercial equipment.
Since retiring I have been working with my son Pat marketing wheels & tires.
We just recently moved from a small place in Yorba Linda to a larger place in Norco.We needed a place with a barn for horses. Unlike other members of my family I tried to stay away from horses and almost succeeded, but with kids & grandkids wanting to ride, it looks like I may end up a broken down (or just broke) old cowboy in my old age whether I like it or not.
Well that's about it for me.
I really do appreciate having been invited to the reunions over the years and feel very proud to know people of the quality I've seen come from Pius X.
Thanks for the memories.

School Story:

I know I've told this story before, but since confession is good for the soul, I feel I must tell it one more time. Time: Sometime during sophmore year.
I was coerced,you understand, by a few class mates, to ditch school during a retreat and drive them to the Burlesque show at 6th & Main in downtown L.A. After seeing what we thought at the time to be a pretty spicey show we returned to school and reentered our prospective classes without any of us having been missed! In the interest of safety (mine) I won't mention the names of the degenerates that made me do it, but I will give you a hint. The first letter of the last name of the one who got this bright idea, begins with H. Isn't that right Al Berryman?
