They, along with Bill Murrey and Dr. Mike Shadowen, went to Pebble Beach to play golf in July and went to Mission Ranch for dinner one night. There sat Clint and my dad couldn't stand it anymore. He had to have his picture. He yelled, "Clint, is your birthday May 31st?" Dad said Clint looked at him as if he were a stalker and replied, "Yes, why?" My dad told him that he and my mom, Debbie Marion, were in San Francisco a few years ago and saw him at his restaurant, but didn't want to bother him. He went on to tell Clint that my mom found out afterwards that she and Clint had the same birthday (of course, not the same year). Dad told Clint he had to have his picture this time!

School has just started and fall must be in the air. The soccer team at GHS sponsored an alumni soccer game that was played last night. It was great seeing the young alumni and the not so young charge up and down the field. Somehow as the game went along, the field got bigger and bigger for some of the players. I'd say from the players' reactions, a good time and a lot of physical exertion was had by all. In this photo you'll find Deepa Reddy and James Ralph Heltsley battling for the ball. They were some of the youngest alumni playing. There were some that sported a fair amount of gray hair.
