Is Mary buying or is it my turn? On second thought I take care of the beer, Mary can do the prime rib.

Last I heard Kitty Carlson was a nurse in Minnesota. I'll bet you could call her sister Amy Strecker (406-259-2424) in Billings and find out how to get ahold of her.

Hey Vikki: I emailed Kevin and Dan Connors is in St. Paul. He now knows he is MIA and will be contacting you. If you don't hear anything let me know...

Does someone in your class have Facebook - great place to reconnect.

Have a great reunion!!

Hey Dana thanks for the info. I will try and go in and google him and see if I can find him there. I do have face book. The white pages and google sure have helped with some that I did not have address's for. Have a great day.

Nope. Don't think so. Steve Ballmer and I are pals, though.

Mary:

My letter was initially sent to the wrong address, but arrived just yesterday. Basically, the letter asks us to choose between 3-5 Jul or 10-12 Jul. Hope that helps.

Goodness you people are getting old!!! Oh wait, I'm getting closer to 50 too. 30 years!!!

Any way, last I heard of Karen McRae, she was near Broadus. I've asked the ex in-laws if they've heard anything of her lately. I'll let you know if they have any information.

Wes Wells' sister is asking for info about Wes under the Obituary section of forums here on Milescity.com. I'm sure she would greatly appreciate any good memories people can share with her.

Tell your wife to get her priorities straight. Drinking beer and playing golf with the likes of me in Miles City is defiantly more important than anything going on Butte.

Be a man and GO!, Bonine Junior. Sheesh.

Actually, I am not surprised about the apathetic response from the Class of 79. I remember that class was full of stoners who smoked too much weed. I tried to hang out with the upper and lower classes, instead, trying desperately to preserve my pink clean lungs from the evilness of maryjane.

No there isn't. I guess you just need to show up and see who is coming. The counts are coming up. We are to about 65 including spouses. I jsut received 4 more in the mail today and 2 e-mail responses. So just say yes or no so I can get a head count for the dinner. Thanks

So, yesterday I had a great time at the National Folk Festival in Butte, and after arriving home at around 10:30 last night I found a message from my brother on the land line, which, in essence, said that he was sitting in the Montana Bar, surrounded by drunken alumni of the Class of 79 who were pitching him "poop", and he in turn was calling me on his cell to pitch me "poop". I suspect it had something to do about me deciding to go to a folk festival instead of the class reunion.

Although the National Folk Festival totally rocked, after listening to that message, I wished indeed, that I was in the Montana Bar, and was one of those drunken morons pitching my brother shi-it. Just because he deserves it.

I was happy to hear that all were having a good time. I will try not to be such a wet blanket, and make it in 2019. If I ain't dead, that is.

Thank you to everyone who visited with me about my uncle Wes Wells. I felt very honored to be there Friday night in his honor. I hope you will keep in contact with me as I would love to hear more stories of when he was in high school. Bob Magnuson, Patty Kountz & hubby, Nancy Magnuson and Wanda Gresens. Thank you very much for sharing your stories. I truly loved them. I'm hoping to get with you sometime and record these stories for later when my girls grow up. Jeanette Hensley, please get a hold of me and let me know when you want my address for that picture you are going to send of Wes. I'm sorry I didn't get to visit with you. I was there Friday night but I didn't see you.

So I heard today that there is a CD of photos of the 79 reunion. Can someone tell me how I obtain a copy these photos? Were they sent to all those who attended?
