Linda and I celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary on August
5 and share 33 years together. We've always been crazy about each other, and
knew right away that were doomed to a zany life together. We've worked hard on
the stuff we liked, have never been politically correct nor financially secure.
High tech has been a wild ride for both of us, and Linda has also been a great
mother and wife.
We're very proud of our son, Loren, who is an honors physics
major at ReedCollege,
famous for its undergraduate physics program. I work at Intel with software
companies developing consumer software for PCs in the "Digital Home."
Within five years, mainstream consumers will be able to control playback of
movies, audio and product information (replacing ads) anywhere in the home.
They'll select content from PC hard drives, Internet, cable boxes or satellite
using a "remote control" to display choices on a high-definition TV.
We're pushing the technology and industry standards to make it happen.
Looking forward to seeing you all again! ~ "Raspy"
A Loveland memory from 1950/60 era!
Otto Fick, our school bus driver, stopped at the railroad track near GarfieldSchool and opened the door to check
for trains. There was a sugar beet train about 200 feet away moving toward our
bus at 5 miles per hour. Rich Cherry yelled "Yeah, the train!" amid
the rowdy school bus chaos, so Otto closed the door and drives our bus onto the
tracks. The train hit the front wheels, which were between the steel tracks,
bumping violently along the wood ties and dragging us about 100 feet. No
serious injuries and Otto's skillful explanation kept his job for even more
school bus excitement on our route.
Walt Graese and Caroline Kezer invited us all to her birthday party at her
house after the Friday football game. Everyone showed up, except for Walt and
Caroline, who had fallen asleep parking north of town listening to the radio.
"Wake Up Little Suzie" by the Everly Brothers woke them up at . Scandalous!
