Barham Bash Review...

When you look in Webster's dictionary you find many words, many definitions with all these words one describes "The Bash" - Generosity...

While you read the definition you get a meaning, you see words what you don't see is beneath the words - they are our family's, friends, and communities. For me clearly visible are names of everyone - who are sincerely generous not only with monetary donations but with donations of time, spirit and a warm heart.

Heard many stories being told and you know everything was a bit taller, a bit faster, and definitely a bit more funny. There is a quote that says ("don't let the truth get in the way of a good story...") trust me embellishing was the norm!!

We did have some serious conversations talking about life, challenges and opportunities all of which had an underlying tone to the gathering. Hopefully the term ALS will not be foreign and we can work together helping to understand bits of the disease.

OK enough of the serious stuff - fabulous food was flying out of the kitchen, beverages were being consumed and the music was wonderful... fun times by all!!

Peace and many thanks, t

We are able to donate a good amount to the ALS Association - Evergreen Chapter for more information you can call/email 1-866-786-7257 (1-866-stop als) /



Had a very good time visiting with old friends and making a few new ones. Warms me to see that you have so many giving friends during this time. Yours and Pam's hospitality was, as usual, very comfortable and from the heart.

I totally suck at this "leaving comments" thing. I just typed a wonderfully moving comment but you'll just have to take my word for it as it disappeared when I had to create a google identity.

Anyway, I appreciate Brian sending out an e-mail to us Class of '76ers, but would love to know who all the old guys were in the picture with Terry! (In the meantime, Terry, you looked at good as you always have. Which is really not fair, considering you're just as old as the rest of us and have a stupid, life-threatening disease.)

Anyway, even though we didn't really hang in the same circles in school, what happens to one of us kind of happens to all of us, so I want you to know I'm thinking about you and your family and sending positive brainwaves (what brainwaves I have left, that is) your way!

Take care!

P.S. Bulldogs forever!!
