Happy Halloween

We're out in the boonies so we didn't expect any trick-or-treaters. We went to a Halloween party at the Mount Vintage Grille. The picture is one of our jack-o'-lanterns.

Stanford Reunion

I attended my 25-year reunion at Stanford and had a great time. It was fun to reconnect with my old college friends, including Bill and Dianne (pictured here, I'm almost in the picture on left).

If you're interested, I posted my Stanford classbook page for the Class of '84 reunion. Todd got me a ticket for the game so I was able to sit with him in the new stadium -- this was my first time back since it was built a couple of years ago. Stanford played a fantastic game and beat Arizona State. Toby Gerhart definitely deserves Heisman consideration.

While I was in town, I also got to see other friends and family. I had lunch at Bellarmine with an old teacher, Tom Alessandri, who knew Mike well. I also got together with a few Bellarmine friends and got caught up a bit with what's happening with my St. Chris buddies.

I got to see my niece, Ashley, playing field hockey. Presentation has one of the top teams this year. My nephew, Michael, is in eighth grade at St. Chris and is planning to attend Bellarmine next year. It was nice to see them again in person. Mom and Dad are looking good. It's hard to believe their son is getting so old.

And I should mention that the weather was perfect. I wore shorts to a night game in October. Really, a great trip.
