Patrick's Latest Interactions
Rich - Where do you live in Carbondale. I visited the campus last year as the nostalgia bug was working on me. I go to Chicago periodically and Carbondale is not far off of the highway that I take home.
We used to play hide-and-seek in our cars senior year in Park Forest neighborhoods, with our car lights turned off. Mom never knew.
BTW, I have been in Woodstock, GA for the past 14 months having left Portland, OR so we now a lot closer to each other.
Jack - I was in Carbondale last week visiting old places and went to the trailer park where we lived senior year, Pleasant Hill Trailer Court. Over 50 years later some of the trailers are still there, and the picture was mine or the one next to it. Your blue Buick convertible was in my mind's eye at the end of the row. Campus Lake, where my dorm room was located earlier, is as pretty as ever.
John, just sent you a private email, and am now trying to reach out via our reunion site, as I was not successful doing so earlier today. Anyway, I was part of the James Bond and blue sweatshirt brigades, and played hide-and-seek with Gothberg (and others?) in our cars in PF neighborhoods with the car lights out. Our Mothers would have been proud. Then, rode with Rebel Hirsch in his '57 Chevy convertible to Cleburne, TX after graduation. Have not been able to locate Jack Hansen or Bruce Karrels, whom I hung around with in addition to Tad Swenson. Many fond memories!!
I started an email to you, and now can't find the draft. Please send your email address to me at email@example.com.
Long time, no see. I recall staying at your parent's place for a while when my Dad was arranging for us to move to Park Forest. Hope you and Joanne are well.

Tad was from PF, and I can't locate him. Found a Tad Swenson on Facebook without a picture and messages him, but no reply. I will ask Marti how to get my high school picture posted to the web site. Also cannot locate Kack Jansen or Bruce Karrels.

I recall living with Tad Swenson at SIU in a mobile home on Pleasant Hill Road in Carbondale. I think you lived at the end of the row, and I believe drove a blue, maybe Buick, convertible. I had a 1963 Chevy Super Sport that I bought used for $800. Had noisy glass pack mufflers, which did not muffle much. Hope you are well. Coming to the reunion?

I remember seeing you at SIU, and have a high school yearbook somewhere that you signed. Hope you are well.

I remember the Summer ('64 or '65) when Jack Hansen and I rode with you from Park Forest to Texas - Cleburne I think. It was in your white '57 Chevy convertibl and Satisfaction was #1. Great times!
