Comments

On the radio 3 days out of high school.
18 years on the air in Tucson, Portland, San Francisco & Seattle.
Built and ran 3 recording studios in Seattle.
Pro sports stadium announcing and game production for Seahawks, Seattle Sounders, Supersonics, Mariners, Tacoma Stars and Baltimore Ravens.
Moved to Annapolis/DC/Baltimore in 1995.
I continue to read scripts out loud for profit from of my basement studio. "Not really work," says Jim Kingston. Over 200 documentaries for Discovery, NatGeo, Smithsonian, et al. Voice of the Washington Post, et al.
Began oil painting in 2002. Over 150 finished works; painting all the time. Spreading colorful grease is good for the soul.
My greatest good fortune is having met (1994) and married (1997) Caroline MacDonald--the star of this show.

School Story

5 Things I learned at Palo Verde:
1. PV baseball coach Jim Wing was and is one of a handful of the finest human beings I've ever been privileged to know.
2. Don't be in a car with Cathy Cooper when there's a post-game riot going on at Tucson High stadium.
3. Friendships made as far back as junior high school can't be described in words. Some would say I've known Rick Hibner, Vince SanAngelo, Paul Dull and Pat Anderson far too long. Lucky me.
4. Watch out for how much you love radio in high school. You might end up getting hooked on that career choice. And Frank Kalil might become your good buddy. Lucky me.
5. Warning! This whole 'Titan' thing might go to your head. Lucky us.

Arnold Canales's smile is one of our class's enduring treasures.  When we think of him, maybe the first word that comes to mind is, "Happy."  Arnold always seemed filled with joy.  The last time many of us saw him, at the 50th reunion's poolside party, he was the picture of the proud patriarch--surrounded by family members who knew he was wild about them.  You could tell he made them as happy as he always made us.  Thanks, Arnold.  

It's Terry Ross MacDonald's birthday today. New comment added.

"Glass Rainbow", my latest oil painting. This canvas completes my 2017 Art Calendar--our 11th edition. We always print extra copies, and if any classmates would like one FREE--it comes with its own cool brass band--just send me your mailing address:

I'll have to limit this to the first 50 requests; that's about all of our extra copies. Happy New Year!

Linda...Thanks so much for coming up and saying hi. As vision-challenged as I am, reading name tags was hopeless, so thanks for making that extra step. And if it's not too inappropriate, may I say you are just as beautiful as ever. Terry

I remember that fire drill. Also remember an acid spill that got everyone out of class. Congratulations on the Baby Jogger. During their recent visit to DC, Rick Hibner told us that story, and of his seeing you on Merv Griffin (I think he said it was Merv).

"Carmine Dahlia", my latest oil painting.
Art doesn't keep the wolves from the door, but it keeps 'em outa my brain. Mostly.

I've been looking for a new logo. This should do, though it will probably necessitate unending talks with Illumination and Universal Pictures. C'mon, isn't it enough that I named "Minions" my all-time favorite movie? No?
This IS perfect, though--all the way down to the one eye thing.

Now there's a great athlete! Still one of my happiest memories of high school was when we heard Paul Dull had won the state high school backstroke swimming championship FRESHMAN YEAR! And he just kept winning them. My two girls (swimmers) had to hear Paul Dull stories the whole time they were growing up. A well-deserved inductee into the Pima Sports Hall of Fame.

Just one more and I'll stop bragging.
Caroline is Mariah's new poster girl.
Mariah did this for hundreds of folks in Austin, and now for dozens and dozens here in Annapolis and around the country with her online training.
I'm pretty proud of both of them.

My other new oil painting, "Thunderheads".
Not a self-portrait of the inner workings of my brain, Dr. Hibner.
And Mr. San Angelo.
Thank you very much.

Tomorrow evening, Thursday June 9, 2016 marks the 50th Anniversary of our graduation from Palo Verde. That was also a Thursday, June 9, 1966. Whew! Time flies when you're having life. Congratulations on all the kids and grandkids and your memories of a half-century. We've lived in a most interesting time. We'll talk all about it October 1, but we're going to have to talk fast. There's so much to cover. Somebody bring some really strong coffee.
