Danny, where do you stay in Sturgis?  I was in the Black Hills with family last week and we stayed in Hill City then went out from there.  One day we went to Deadwood and Sturgis.  In Sturgis we just drove around as bikers were already arriving.  We saw where the concerts and big campground was.  The VA center is really large.  Hope you have fun and stay safe.

Dick  -  What kind of a Mini ???  Is it too hot in Nebraska during the Summer  ???    We've only had about 3 or 4 days this year over  100*  -  the problem is it's been  97*  -  98*  -  and 99* several times  -  there isn't much difference whent the humidity is 80%  -  they all feel like 108* to me.  Maybe we can call it HTH (Hotter Than Hell) Mini.  Don't be suprised if I don't show up.  My Doctor released me last week from Rehab  -  I can't start playing golf until next week (he wants me to wait for 3 full months) so there you go.  I better get back to work  (I've mentioned  2  Four Letter Words in this post   -    Golf  &   Work).  Talk to you later.

Danny,  How long does it take to "detox" from Sturgis? I see they have rules there this year. Good luck with that...

Doubt we'll be allowed to have a mini here.  Maybe if we call it a riot ??

I like the idea of a riot ( protest )!!!!!!  

It's been a few years since our class did that !  What grade were we in when we had the SIT DOWN in the hallway by the music rooms ??  What were we protesting ????

I just remember when I left the building I was a naughty girl !! I pulled the fire alarm and set the arlam going !!!!  I guess that is my only claim to fame for my high school days !!!!

Way to go, Anna!  Always the rebel.
I didn't participate in those peace riots back in the day. Ended up being on the receiving end of the insults. C'est dommage. Never once have I ever regretted my service in defense of our country, our allies, and the Constitution.

The planning committee is looking ahead to our rescheduled 50th class reunion - if that is even possible in these times😳. We are going to rebook the venues for August 26-27th, 2021. If anyone has a conflict, please contact me at or Sue at by September 1st, and we will try to accommodate.

Joann Stengel (Tumbleson)

August 26-27, 2021 is a Thursday and Friday. Is that correct?

08/09/20 04:31 PM #9377    


Sue Wise (Divan)

Nope, that's my fault!  Dates should be Friday, Saturday 27-28, 2021.

Joann Stengel (Tumbleson)

Thanks for clarifying Sue. I thought maybe since most everyone is retired maybe we were doing a week day reunion 😏

Dick  -  I was in the same boat as you  -  defending Our Country in Germany  -  Making sure the Communists didn't come over the Berlin Wall and all.  Going to the Beer Fests and chasing the Frauleins  -  Going to the 1972 Olympic Stadium in Munich  -  Did I mention going to all the Beer Fests.  I better go to work and tell everyone about the World as We Know It. 

Susie / Cindy and all the Class of 70 Reunion Planners  -  I know that it has been a hard time for scheduling  -  I don't know about others but The sooner the better would be better for us  -  Like in the Spring or early Summer.  August is an A _ _  Whipping.  Just my opinion.  Thanks for all you guys efforts putting it together. Talk to you later.

Happy birthday Cindy!!! I baked you a cake for your birthday,but I ate it. It was a spice cake which happens to be my favorite and I thought of you with every bite. OK,I am a crazy old man who lies.I didn't really bake you a cake.It is the thought that counts.

Cindy Wilson (Rasmussen)

Happy birthday kids!  I'm headed to NM for a week to be with my younger sister, Susan.  She fell and broke her hip and a rib.  She and her hubby just bought a really nice camper so she could go on his business trips with him, that's on hold for now.  "Best laid plans"...

Seize  each day for sure!

I would like to acknowledge the passing of Kris (Nelson) Blaschko.  She was with us in school up until some time of her Senior year.  The '69 Log has her listed as a member of our class.  I think she was at Emerson Elementary with me during  one of my two enrollments.  There are several other former classmates that I recall due to various circumstances didn't formally Graduate with us in 1970 that I feel are still part of our class.  I don't know if we have any policy on the subject (Class of 1970 membership) but in the Age of Inclusion to me at least, she was a member of our class.

Joann Stengel (Tumbleson)

Dick, several in our class were discussing Kris this morning on Facebook. Some remembered her, others didn't. Her face looks familiar to me. I need to look in my Log. I'm for including them. They started out with us!
