This morning I put on my rain gear and went for a walk in the rain. It was glorious. It is nice to see spring making a comeback after such a long dark winter.    

Pictures of some of the flowers I saw on my walk.

Oh Marvin, I'm so with you on the Spring thing!  It's so nice to have some warm weather and sunshine....kind of helps with all the madness in the world. 

Clint, I'm glad your mom keeps you honest - I really miss my mom, it's like life is just a blink!  We cleaned out mom and dads house and sold it about a year ago, but my sister recently found moms wedding dress in her cedar chest.  I held up that dress and remembered that I wore it in our graduation and dad graduated in 1949, so 1969 was their homecoming and the year they got married, so I gues we incorporated that random fact in the assembly and I wore her dress.  It was just a great remembrance as I held it up.  I have no idea how I ever fit in that dress - ha!  It is so tiny, - oh boy, those were the days!! 

I was also talking with my sister Susan - her first husband was Jimmy May who played in the band Holden Caufield at the memorial hall - I had such a mad crush on him and tried to never miss a night at the memorial hall when his group was playing.....Mom made me take Susan to a party with me one night and I knew Jimmy May was going to be there - and yes folks, sound the trumpets, Susan won the night, got the date and I was basic chopped liver - I needed lots of therapy after that major blow, especially to my fragile ego. As it turned out, it wasn't a good marragie for her - but hey, it could have been for me!

Oh the memoral dances So much innocent fun and the best music ever!  We sould organize a memoral hall dance with some great bands and put the girls on one side and the boys on the other and jlust wiat for the magic - it wil come.

If anyone is out there, can you tell me how to post pictures from an Iphone??? Laugh if you want but I'm an idiot when it comes to computers.  At least I'm trying, Right!!!!

Don't feel bad about having difficulty with your iPhone, after all they don't come with instructions and very little of their function is intuitive (besides, all this computer stuff is still alien technology to our generation). Coke has an iPhone and I have an Samsung and I think mine is way easier to use. I have become sort of an IT Specialist in our house because I am always helping her figure out how to use her iPhone and her iMac. 

Here is a webpage that gives instructions for copying a picture from an iPhone to a third party application:

I hope this helps.

By the way, you never did send me the picture of your clock ;-)

Totally agree with Marvin!   A Samsung Galaxy (e.g. S20, etc.) is the only way to go.

If you're wanting to put a photo from your iPhone to this site you need to select the photo on your phone that you want and then send it to your email. Then open your email and open the photo that is there and save it to your computer. You can leave it in the download folder or put it into your pictures folder. Then get into this site to add a response. At the top left (next to source) is a little icon that looks like a picture, click on it to open it up. Click on the browse button and it will take you to your folders. Find the photo that you saved either in the downloads or pictures folder, select it and then click on open. It will bring the photo to this site. This is all assuming you are using a Windows computer. When it comes to Mac computers I'm lost and will never be found. If all else fails ... ask a teenage kid and they'll take care of it for you. :)

Hi everyone,

It's good to hear from everyone.... I'm here in north Idaho doing the groundhog day thing, boy it is getting old and just doesn't seem real. Our county hasn't had any cases yet, people are still doing social distancing and being careful, being able to see a few people when the weather is nice outside.

I've been working in my yard alot, practicing pool, hanging with my 2 cats, sewing some creative things and making masks for the soon as it warms up more I'll be able to do some kayaking.

Hope you are all ok and doing good and not going to crazy...

I enjoy your posts Daryl, keep em coming!

And here I am, again, with another sad announcement:

I've been told by a couple of classmates that Kevin Birch died yesterday. He was involved in a fender bender accident, but they speculate he may have had a medical issue that led to the crash. I'll post an obituary and other information as soon as it's available.

Kevin John Birch, age 68 passed away due to a medical incident that resulted in an automobile accident in Santaquin, Utah on Thursday May 7, 2020.

Kevin was born on October 18, 1951 in Fillmore, Utah to Leland John and Georgia Rasmussen Birch. The family later moved to Springville, Utah where he attended school and graduated from Springville High School, Class of 1969, lettering in football and wrestling.

On January 7, 1970 he married Birdena Bird and later they moved to Spanish Fork, Utah. He graduated as an apprentice carpenter in 1975 from Utah Technical College. He had the opportunity to work with his father and brother at Tolboe Construction Co. Some of the buildings they built together included the BYU Marriott Center, Utah Valley Hospital and an addition to The University of California, Berkeley. He then went to work for Howa Construction Co. He excelled as a superintendent while managing the construction of many buildings in the Western United States including a horse race track and casino in New Mexico, a pharmaceutical distribution center in Texas, City Creek and the Wells Fargo Center in Salt Lake City, UT

Our dad loved the outdoors. He created many memories hunting, fishing and camping with his family. We will always cherish the hours he spent playing cards and board games with us, watching Saturday morning cartoons and American Bandstand. Our dad had a great sense of humor with a quick wit. He made people laugh and had a big heart. He always put others first and loved unconditionally.

He is survived by his ex-wife Birdena Birch and their children; MaLesa (Ernie) Hone, Shanon (Nicky) Birch and Misty (Dennis) Webber, 9 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren, his siblings, Leslie (Jill) Birch, LaRie (Kevin) Davis and Jay (Sharalyn) Birch. He is preceded in death by his parents Leland John and Georgia Birch.

Dad, we miss you and pray that you are at peace. We want you to know how much we love you and look forward to the day that we can be together again.

Condolences can be offered at

I have a golf tee time Thursday, May 14, At 10:32 AM. At Old Mill Golf Course in Salt Lake. All my regular buddies can't play that day, so I thought I'd put it on here and see if any of you wanted to play golf that day. If you do give me a call at 801-718-1390, that's my cell phone. It be fun to get together with some of you guys if you have the time.

Ken is home but still needs prayers and friends. I thought his spirits were good for where he is at.

UTawna Johnson (Witney)

Is it okay to ask what is wrong with Ken?

05/11/20 05:00 PM #4025    


Kenneth Strong

Ken has blood clots in his lungs and his heart is in afib. They shocked him twice to try to get his heart in rhythm but no luck.

UTawna Johnson (Witney)

Ouch, Ken!!!!  I'll definitely remember you, your family, and your medical team in my prayers. ♥♥

I am very sad to hear about our class mates in recent days.  My prayers are with Ken for a speedy recovery.  Such and active guy and great outdoorsman.  I especially saddened to hear about Kevin.  Kevin was a neighbor of mine growing up.  I was there when his dad built their home. Kevin and I, our earlier years, had a great time together hiking the mountains, and playing catch with a football.  We kinda of grew apart during the later years of High School, but I will always remember him as funny, kind and good natured.  Kevin, Craig Devinish and I had some great times rodding around in Craigs old Ford.  We are having too many class mates leave us way to early.  I keep in touch with the posts on this site, but do not contribute very often.  But I want you to know that what a great class of 69 we have.  Those of you that I knew best I will always remember.  Live the best you can with the time you have left.  Forgive others and find love and peace in your life and share it with others.
