Great to hear from you. Too many years. So far I haven't had any mug shots. I'm still working -- a little law, a little real estate. Travel some. Two grand kids in Mobile, Alabama. Where?

Spencer isn't the only NDHS '57 grad to write a book. I sold a whopping 181 copies-- roughly one thousandth of one per cent of Who moved My Cheese. If you are interested in the Middle East and how a kid from the Valley played in the desert, see The Middleman on Amazon.

Bro Bill (Bill Nick - ND Principal) had me working on the $10,000,000 bond for NDHS last fall. Can you believe how far Notre Dame has come? They didn't teach that class as I remember. The game plan for NDHS is inspiring. It is fun to be around the school after all these years and recall the good times and silliness.

I see Richard Daly a couple of times a year. He is retired from the Texas Catholic Conference and teaching a politics class at St. Edwards U. He loves those Texas Republicans.

The blog is fun. Look forward to the stories and seeing you at the reunion meeting in June. Dan

If I buy "The Middleman", will you autograph it at the 50th? I'll bring the pen!
