Hi Mike,
I was watching "Firing Line" about the recent protests in Cuba and someone asked about invading. I recall after the Bay of Pigs, the US was bargaining for release of prisoners. You had done something where your parents grounded you, and we organized a protest. Byron Lemmon made a sign saying “Tractors for Boehme“. I don’t think we got very far with your parents.
I also recall that since I was your best friend, I did not come to your birthday party but would go on a family vacation later.....

December 5. Wij vieren Sint Nicolaas:

I was three when we came to the United States, but remember that we tried to maintain Dutch customs.
Until I was 12 or so, we celebrated Saint Nicholas day, December 5. We would leave our shoes by the fireplace with carrots and bread for the Saint's white horse and would receive small gifts in our shoes in return. If you were bad, then you would get coal in your shoe, but I never did. (Actually, now that I think of it, it would have been a good trick to put coal my sister shoe.) (When we visited my niece in Amsterdam shortly after my sister died, we were horrified to see depictions of Saint Nicholas’s slave, Black Peter with stereotypical red lips and many people in black face. Even 12 years later, despite controversy, many people still depict black Peter.)

I am fluent in Dutch again. We always spoke Dutch at home, but I had not spoken Dutch since Mieke died 12 years ago. For the past two years, almost every morning I call Catharina Vink, an 87 year old born in Indonesia, then a Dutch colony, whose father was with royal Dutch Shell before the war. She spent 5 years in a Japanese prison camp before moving to Holland, and then to the US.

First year with the Barebow Recurve at the Redding Archers Trail Shoot. Ecstatic to hit the 88 yard Elk Target with both shots. Although I missed the 101 yard Big Foot I did hit the 20 yards Big Feet. Finished 2nd in my class.

Hi Judy,
Tonight's PBS News Hour just had a 10 minutes segment on childhood trauma and the main expert discussing the lifelong impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's) was your daughter-in-law Dr Nadine Burke Harris.
She was well-versed in the topic and very articulate. We all are very proud of her.

Gordon, I remember following you out to the pool on the first day of freshman year trying to figure out a sport, and for the next four years and one year of college, I played water polo and was on the swim team.
I remember seeing your French father‘s bicycle with surprisingly skinny wheels hanging upside down in the garage so that the tires would be preserved. Little did I know that it was Americans who were way behind the times.

Remembering my Band Of Brothers and Women who served and sacrificed. Especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice today on Veterans Day!

Hey Paul, how are you guys faring throughout these awful fires? It's heartbreaking to see so much devastation. Hoping all is well with you.

Hi Sue,
I wanted to thank you again for setting up and maintaining the class website. The older I am the more I value past relationships, and to learn about the interesting people I did not know well.
I am looking forward to our 55th class of 66th reunion. Hans

Hi Judy, I forwarded the picture to some friends with the notation that being an alum of Carlmont high school is pretty cool. I was thinking though, your wonderful daughter-in-law is a Harris, but is your husband related to Kamala Harris or is that just an incredible coincidence??
