School Story:

Arrived at Cubberley High School from a German Gymnasium and the French School in Berlin, Germany. We lived through the blockade and the building of the wall separating East and West Berlin, most of the family at Checkpoint Charlie when the Russian and US tanks faced off at the only official crossing, never thinking that WW III could have started there, that very day!!
From Cubberley, I went to prep school in East Cornwall, CT for the Winter and Spring semester. I spoke at graduation about change and dislocation, two topics close to my heart, as Marvelwood School was my 5th high school experience, taken in 3 different languages. My high school was Cubberley and I had not been allowed to graduate from my high school! I went to school in Santa Cruz for a couple of semesters but never found my niche.
The pattern was set, as I have traveled the world for the past 50 years, lived in 15 different countries and founded several natural resource companies from New Guinea to Kenya to Brazil and Chile among others. I bought and sold a small bank in Uruguay in 1984 and came back to the States with President Reagan, settling here in Rhode Island and starting a family. My businesses have all remained overseas, principally in Russia, both as the Soviet Union and today's iteration, Africa and South America.

Happy happy birthday with many healthy returns. Hope you and yours are well and untouched by Covid. Just got my second needle and feel so relieved. I do hope we can put both Trump and Covid behind us forever.

Wonderful to see I shared my high school years, even if truncated, with a great American citizen. I have been disillusioned with our leadership recently but hardly with our citizenry. Bravo on a life well lived and thank you for your service. Merry Christmas and healthy New Year.

Hey Tom, Hope you are getting through Covid with your health and good cheer! We are down in Puerto Rico and we have a fairly easy time of it, with the exception of travel restrictions. Hope you are up for a brew in the New Year as we have a burgeoning young film director in the family and we will be out in SoCal January February time frame. If Covid allows of course.

Happy birthday Jay. We are now living in Puerto Rico and probably will not get back to the restaurant we had lunch in 5-6 years ago. Hope you are doing well.

Happy happy birthday with many healthy returns of the day. Must say, you look very few days older than the day you graduated from Cubberley.

Hi William, I just read the meeting you had with Mike Garbetts' dad regarding Mikes passing. Do you have any further information or information regarding Mike's family and what caused his passing. Mike was a dear friend.
