Re: Illness
    My wife and I have spent the last week in Walla Walla, in the
intensive care unit of St. Mary's, where my Brother Tom's ('53) wife
Darlene Card McKeown ('54), has been on life support. Darlene has been 
a smoker for 40 years, and her lungs are in terrible shape. She is on a
respirator, which is helping her breathe. She can intake the Oxygen, but
can't expel the Carbon Dioxide, which is the bad stuff. She will probably
always have to have Oxygen with her, if she ever gets well enough to
breathe on her own. Tom is beside himself, having gone thru, successfully,
a bout with cancer, and your thoughts and prayers would be much
appreciated. They will enjoy their 50th anniversary in August. We are 
now in Portland, heading to the Seattle area, and then back to Walla 
Walla next week-end for a few days, and then back to Sacramento.

    Thanks for the UFO pic above Rattlesnake. I can see that lacustrine 
edge up there, about 100' below the peak... One of those Palouse pics 
looked like a landscape painting (or a computer-enhanced photo). What's 
the high rise in the background? BTW, I forwarded your snapshot of Christ 
the King (on eBay) to a couple of young ladies who received their First 
Communion there, (but don't know if that did you any good)...   ^..^

Re: Iditarod Update - Checkpoint #18 (of 27) - Eagle Island and/or
   4 teams have departed Eagle Island: Robert Sorlie (1st), 
Lance Mackey (2nd), Ramy Brooks (3rd), and Martin Buser (4th).

Dateline: Eagle Island checkpoint
Headline: AWOL dog costs Buser a couple hours
   One of his leaders, "Quebec", came loose during a snow storm and
Martin didn't notice right away... had to go back and find/get him.
Quebec was a napping black dot on the trail when Martin found him. Buser
said it was "a two-hour detour on a single trail"

    Well, dagonit!  Charlie Boulding scratched at the Anvik checkpoint.
Dunno why yet, but I suspect it had something to do with the fact that he
was down to only 9 dogs. I had hoped he'd have a great finish for his
last Iditarod.

The team in front now can change in a heartbeat.
Stay tuned...

Bomber Cheers,

Hi Linda;
    I have wondered what ever happened to you many times over the years.  
I don't know if you even remember me from school or not but I just wanted 
to say Hi.

To: Terry Ganz ('68WB)
    I tried to send you a birthday message but email bounces back to me.
I won't be home next week to do it and I didn't want to be late. So I am 
trying to be the First. Happy Birthday, Terry.
