I hope all is well with you and your family. Last Friday Rheva Mason (Thomason) and I met with our spouses David and Peggy for dinner and then an evening with Philip Margolin at a book signing for his latest mystery
novel. He was very impressive and made the experience quite enjoyable. Attached is a photo of Rheva, Philip and
me at the event. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
For those of you who don't know, Phil Margolin is one of our classmates and a New York times best selling author.
His latest book is "Woman With a Gun".
Received a surprise on our doorstep this morning & after opening it realized it had come from Brad Scott. In an email recently Brad discussed how he misses Long Island & felt we had as well, although we go back often, & told me to “look out for a couple of packages in a few days”. Upon opening the 2 cartons it turned out to be an antique map of Long Island as well as a frame to put it in.
Carole & I put it together within 30 minutes & hung it on a wall adjacent to our sunroom in a great spot.
This is without doubt an “expression of friendship” from an old & true friend & I wanted to share this with our Class of ‘61 friends as well.
Sometimes we do get more than we bargained for. Roberta Willensky Klein went to see "Love Letters" on Broadway. Getting her
picture taken with the stars Mia Farrow and Brian Dennehy was an unexpected bonus. What a treat!

Finally got to visit with Gino and spent a delightful day with him at his home and then a quick visit to the Marina where he has his boat docked. Hopefully we can return next year and go out on his boat. He wanted to take us out on this trip but we had not allotted enough time for that experience. Wait until next year.
Hi Marcy...Just sending a picture from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where Joe and Valerie Garafolo got together with
Sandy and Del Duvall.....know you're always threatening about pictures! ha ha
Joe and Val are down for a visit at their timeshare and we are in town for a while at the house.
Just beautiful down here! Hope all is well with you.
Thanks Sandy! Glad you remembered the picture. Now could you ask Del to give Joe smiling lessons while you're spending time together?
That's me and Scruffy at Glacier Lake in Montana. Yeah, I know, I know. which one's Scruffy?
From the traveling man-Jerry Murphy. He got together with Bob Lent last month and forgot to take pictures! I think this is a peace offering.
We're in Glacier Park and it's more spectacular than any picture. After all my years of traveling, the U.S.A. has more to see than any place I've ever been.
The annual Christmas dinner is still taking place almost fifty three years after graduation.

My sister Gladys-anne Pandolfi Mize (LMHS '77) and I spent a day in Levittown. Took a walking tour of the neighborhood. Here is a photo of our home on Turn Lane.

What Pat didn't mention when sending me these for the site, was an interesting fact she mentioned on the phone. On that walking tour she took with her sister, they took a wrong turn and got temporarily lost. Lo and behold they recognized the home of Theresa Caputo, otherwise known as the Long Island Medium. Her home is shown on every episode of her TV series. They even saw a blond lady leave the house but were too far away to recognize the face. I watch the show just to see familiar places in Levittown such as Zorns. I know others of you do as well.
Pat's old home looks very much the same - at least recognizable. I did a driveby of mine on the 50th reunion weekend and never would have recognized it. That was sad.
Our group had another 'reunion' in Myrtle Beach.
