My 40th Class Reunion

Marian and I flew to Omaha, NE, for my 40th Class Reunion at Boys Town in July 2001. I had a great time seeing all my classmates again. Had not seen most of then since I left Boys Town after graduating in the Class of 1961. We had 94 classmates to graduate and it was a very emotional trip for all of us. At the time I graduated, Rt. Rev. Msgr. H. Wegner, was Director. Of course, Rt. Rev. Edward Joseph Flanagan was the Founder. Above are a few of my classmates goofing off and having fun after the banquet.

Skinning Out Marian's 8 pt. Buck!

This was taken back in the early 90's when we were hunting at Brown's Point Hunting Club on King's Point Island, north of Vicksburg. This was Marian's second 8 pt. that she had harvested. I saved the hide on the deer and had it tanned and is on the wall hanging by the deer rack. She shot this one in the neck and dropped it right there. It was chasing two does in some brush. Way to go Marian!
