Folks, I need to make a correction. I thought is was our '59 classmate Sharon Andersen involved with COPD group but she is in fact NOT the one. Different Sharon Anderson but it is our Sharron Bolt. Sorry bout that!

However, our '59 Sharon Andersen did go to the 6th annual Crawds 'n Rods - crawfish boil and car show - last Saturday at Elgin and writes..

"I got first place in the Classic Mustang (pre 1980) category with my 1966 Mustang. Tell Johnna (Gordon) thanks for the really nice was sponsored by Milo Gordon!" (pix above).

Just received more great pictures of the space shuttle Atlantis launch from Ron Sheffield. I will be posting them on the blog - left-hand side - in next day or two. Really have enjoyed Ron keeping 'us' in the loop!

Terrible storm through the 'home town' last night about 12:30am and they weren't kidding. Hail was size of golf ball which is in middle of the picture below. I had to wait a few minutes before I ran out to grab these & they had melted slightly from the rain. But, I got one-upped today, more west side of town, pictures of hail size of baseballs! Lot of damage in area, know some who had house windows broken out, tons of automobile damage. Storms still in forecast!
