School Story:

I remember the great Senior Bench heist. I also have great memories of being on the Shield staff.

** Special Memories of LSE (i.e., favorite teacher, class, activity)

A couple of my favorite teachers were Mrs. Commers (Jim's mom) for English and Mr. Pearce for Spanish.

** Life lesson learned at LSE – not in the classroom

Don't bully people and accept people for the way they are.

** Comments:

I have lived in quite a few different places. I moved to L.A. from 75 to 77. Then in 1979 I moved to NYC and lived in the East Village for 10 years. I then moved to New Orleans in 1990 and spent 17 years there. I have been living in Glenwood Arkansas since 2007.

What do you do now?

I've dealt the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas since 2009. I am passing on the WSOP this summer as I'm going to be in Lincoln for our 50+2 Reunion.
I also have a weekly radio show on KUHS FM 102.5 in Hot Springs where I play a wide range of music, from rock to reggae to Motown and blues.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I play music with some friends here in Glenwood. There are some beautiful lakes and rivers in my area and I spend a lot of time swimming from May to September.
I also love to travel and just returned from a trip to New Orleans and Florida, where I touched base with lots of friends. And I swam with manatees in Crystal Springs Florida for my second time in two years.

What did you always want to do that you haven’t done yet?

Hmmmm, needs more thought.

Places you want to go?

South America, Brazil mostly. I have a friend in Sao Paolo and hope to visit him within a year or so.

What's the farthest you've been from home?

Australia. I've spent quite a bit of time in Europe as well. In 1985, I traveled around Europe for 5 months, with the bulk of that time spent living in Amsterdam.

Favorite Music:

Beatles, Kinks, Beach Boys, Toots and the Maytals, Louie Prima, Little Feat, Moby Grape, you get the picture. I could list tons more.

Favorite Movies:

King Kong (original) Pulp Fiction, Fargo, too many to list.

Favorite TV Shows:

Curb Your Enthusiasm, Sgt. Bilko, The Sopranos, Car 54, Where Are You? are a few that come to mind.

Favorite Quote:

I'll stick with the old Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Anything else we should know?

Not right now.

Is there a way to see who has registered for the reunion this June? I will be attending but I'm curious as to how many fellow classmates will be there. Quite a mob scene I hope.

I didn't know Jay that well but I also have a bowling related memory of him.  I was in the same Parkway Lanes Bantam League that Greg Shaw referred to in his memory of Jay.  I wasn't on his team but I do remember watching him bowl and like everyone else in the building, we knew he was bowlling at an adult tournament level at the age of 14 or so.  

   In a related memory, I remember a tournament where we got to use our handicap and I won two trophies...the singles trophy and a doubles trophy with as I remember, Doug Magee as my partner.  I just happened to be hot that morning and when my handicap was added to my already high scores, I won two trophys, which I still have. They need a little repair as they have gotten a bit trashed in the many moves I've made in the past 57 years. I think I'll put that on my TO DO list....repair them dang bowling trophys.
