Steve & I are so fortunate to have our sons and their families within 20 minutes of us. Lots of fun times together!

After graduating from USC with a BS in Education (Visual Design major/Math minor), I taught mostly 6th grade in Huntington Beach for 7 years. Married my 'summer boyfriend', Steve. He grew up in Laguna Beach, where my family vacationed every summer for a month. We first met when we were 10 & dated every August, but never during the year, because we were not 'geographically desirable'. We've been married 43 years & he's STILL by boyfriend!

In 1973 we Started Fosters' Gardens, Inc., an interior/exterior plantscapes sales and maintenance company. Steve is 'The Green Thumb' and I continue to deal with the office mgmt 'stuff'. We envy all our retired friends, ,but realize with the current financial climate & government over-regulating businesses, we will most likely work till we expire :-(

After 3 years in Newport Beach, we moved to Irvine, where we lived for 33 years. We moved to Laguna Beach 8 years ago and LOVE IT here.

When time permits we enjoy playing golf (for fun, not scores) and spending time on our yacht ~ whether in Newport Harbor with yacht club friends or cruising to Catalina Island and other So Cal waters.

I truly treasure attending our PHS Reunions and realize how special it is to reconnect with OLD classmates. Our Class of 1964 can definitely take pride in the invaluable K-12 experiences and friendships made that keep us all coming back for "MORE". Can't wait to see everyone!

I tried to upload a Christmas photo of our family last year with 'The Red Dragon' that I drove in HS and at USC, but it's probably too small to view. Anyway, I still have the 1930 Model A Ford that my parents 'courted in'. It's always been a major player in our family.

Helene, Happy Early BDay for NEXT year. I've been trying to catch up on a myriad of different fronts lately. Hope you're out cruising off the CA coast and can celebrate your birthday for the entire month of April. Wouldn't it have been fun to be born on April Fools Day. That would have called for some GREAT PARTIES! Let me know if you're ever in the Laguna Beach area. Luckily our business has never had to shut down, through all this C _ _ _! Can't let the interior or exterior plantscapes die! Keep up your healthy state of mind and body. Wonder when/where our next Reunion will be. Maybe YOU should be in charge. Just food for thought. Big Belated BDay hugs to you + a glass of vino or a Margarita whatever.

Roger, not sure why everyone is assuming you're one of the youngest vs one of the OLDEST? :-) Hope you're out causing trouble and having fun doing it . . . Maybe a celebration dinner at Trader Vic's or The Tonga Room? Enjoy whatever . . . BDay Hugs

Roger was definitely too old for you! Gosh, I'm SURE that's a current photo of you too! Have a great one, surrounded with ALL YOUR FRIENDS . . . some place fun, and be a trouble maker! Gotta live life WHILE WE STILL HAVE IT! 'Non-Virtual' 'No Mask' BDay Hugs !

Hi Cathy,
I guess sort of a Halloween surprise for your parents. How SCARY. How you & Tom are down in the desert already, so you can be celebrating there. I'm playing in a BOO HOO golf tournament on Tuesday here. Fun costumes I'm sure. I'll have to send you a photo of the New Shirt I'm wearing. It's Black with an Orange kind of silhouette of Trump's head and it reads MAKE HALLOWEEN GREAT AGAIN. So wearing it with some ORANGE pants and probably some white ghost or skeleton earrings. Should be lots of fun and the weather is perfect for it. Today it's already 81 degrees here on the coast. Have a great BDay ! And hope Tom is spoiling you rotten, like I'm sure he does everyday. Hugs, Farrell

Hey, 'OLD' Neighbor . . . remember the GOOD OLD TIMES?? We were so lucky to grow up when & where we did. Hate to think what our kids and grand kids will miss out on. Guess I'm a couple days late, but the thoughts there. HAPPY BDAY. Hi to Cesca too :-)

Can't believe we're as O-L-D as our parents (were). We should be celebrating everyday.
Assume you went to The Tonga Room at The Fairmont to sip exotic drinks and DANCE!!?

Carol, so jealous that you're retired !! Sounds like you've been having a ball traveling . . . love the photos. Anything fun in those cups . . . maybe an adult beverage. Beautiful scenery! And what precious little Angels. Anyway, Happy OLD Birthday. Steve and I just keep saying how glad we are that we grew up when & where we did vs. having to deal with all the - - - - that kids are confronted with nowadays. esp with social media and just our state and world situations. We were certainly LUCKY HIGHLANDERS. And, of course, our class of '64 was the best. Enjoy every moment. Hugs Christy

Hi "Little Punk" . . . guess I'm just a little older than you, unless you were held back in Kindergarten? Actually, I do remember the 1/2 K class I was in was held back, so that they had no more January graduations. But I did love Kindergarten. Sure a lot dif than Kindergartens today. Anyway, hope Brad spoiled you rotten on your BDay and made it totally memorable. I sure miss being closer, so I can enjoy seeing our classmates more often than just once a decade. BIG HUGS Christy
