Here we are at the end of 2022, I wonder what you all have been through?
I have managed to get away, enjoying a little warm island play!
But tough winter stories have hit the news, I am on the beach while you may be singing the blues!
Just think- in another year and a half, we will all be having a laugh- our 60 year celebration will be in line, so I can only hope some folks find the time, to organize- then we can fraternize!
I have seen so few of you, the 55 year party I invited you all to, but now my house in Minnetrista was sold, we felt we were getting to old- looking after the 5 acres was a lot of land, we changed our minds- creating a new plan!
But maybe I will still have my car shop- after 50 years there I m not ready to stop!
Who has a mind to put it out, see what we can think about?
Happy New year-2023 looks great to me,
Mark Brandow

This is a sad loss- Mike was so engaged in the larger world & development overseas. We shared the Peace Corps Volunteer life early on, both in Malaysia, but it formed a bond that stayed with us. He often shared what was going on in the Friends Of Malaysia group he belonged to, encouraging my participation. His career gave him a unique insight to World Affairs- he was a valued friend for many of us. Rest In Peace.

Ran into Richard Michaels, a fellow classmate, at a hill climb in Wisconsin.
He has married & moved to Alma on Main Street, still has a love for MG’s and motorcycles. Told him to join the website so he would be in the link.
He said he would come up if I host a yard party in Minnetrista, so think about an occasion to celebrate!
Happy Halloween, Mark

Well- another year gone by, stop in to say hi if you ever get here throughout the year.
Just finished my 46th year, still not clear how I can ever get out of here- car business I mean. We head off to Vieques Island in mid Dec. you may have stoped there while on duty in the Caribbean, but the island is much better now that the military is gone!
Enjoy your Bday!
