Richard's Latest Interactions
HAPPY 75th Birthday Richard and welcome to the three quarters of a century club. I will not be attending the Birthday Bash at Rockledge and so you don't to bring your metal detector to track me down. Again, Happy Birthday.
I am speechless. I didn't know Kim at Conard but got to know her better at our Fernwood Get together in Elmwood. She made arrangements with the owner and got people to come. Class of 65 members packed the bar and we had a blast talking about the past. Whenever i wrote in Whats New about my health issue, she always was positive and wishing me well. I will miss Kim and wishing her a peaceful rest.

I know this is a little late but it would have been a wonderful idea to video the highlights of the party and shared it with classmates who couldn't attend.

To all my classmates. I will not be at the BIG Birthday Bash at Rockledge. Due to on going health concerns with kidneys and heart and the mask requirement (I have a mask phobia from my experience at the 911 attack on the Pentagon) it will be difficult for me to be among large groups. I was surely going to miss the celebration especially at Rockledge where I spent my summers caddying and learning about the great game of golf. Wish all a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY and hope to see you at the next reunion.

Anybody got any "Duct Tape"? Tomorrow is my sonar exam on my kidney, bladder, and prostrate to find out why the low flow of urine!

Okay classmates, we were a talented and gifted group of grads so let's get the ball running for a new name for our beloved teams. The first one that came to mind came from Welcome Back Kotter. "The Conard Sweathogs" but that is a little demeaning to our scholastic endeavors. How about The Rebels again this is a more demeaning due to the reference to the Confederacy and is then politically incorrect..
Finally, The Patriots but that is really demeaning to the Giants fans like myself. Let's have some fun and maybe we can come up with a solution.

I hope all of you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving. For me this thanksgiving will be memorable time. On November 18th I was taken by ambulance to the hospital with a rapid heartbeat of 177 per minute. They took me to closest hospital with a cardiac care unit which was 15 minutes away in the next county. They called ahead and when we arrived at the emergency room they had a team of doctors and nurses to assist. Anyways, to make a long story short the diagnosis was that I had "A" fib and my upper chambers which pumps the blood through the heart was beating so fast that the lower chambers were not responding fast enough. I have had 2 congestive heart failures in the past but the doctors said this incident could have led to either a heart attack or a stroke. At one point they had to inject me with a medication to stop my heart for a few seconds to allow my heart to resync the rhythm. I am currently wearing a heart monitor taped to my chest that sends the EKGs via smart phone to a medical service that records my status and if there is any significant changes will not only contact my cardiologist and myself. I am currently additional medication to keep my heartbeat in a normal manner. I have to see the cardiologst on Tuesday to go over the results and to determine a permanent treatment plan. Sorry guys but it looks like I will probably miss the Great Birthday Party at my favorite summer hangout Rockledge Country Club.
Another Talcott fellow classmate. A tough looking appearance but really a gentle soul. It is sad that there was no obituary and makes you wonder how he lived his life. He was divorced but did he have children? Did he have surving siplings? How many other missing classmates are in that same situation. Pray for his soul.
