Sorry to hear about your husbands bad day. The class of 63 is in my daily prayers and there will be some extras said now for you, Mary Ann and all others needed.

Keep your spirits up and soon we'll hear the chopsticks playing.

Take Care.

Borgo Sisters! Imagine the number of shuffle-steps and bunny’s ears in that building!

Most importantly, I will be saying extra prayers for Arlene's husband, Doug, that he regains the strength in his hand and arm.  The pleasure he gives to others as a pianist deserves to contiue.

OK, Lucia, laughed my head off. I'm pretty sure her photo is of her sister, MJ and herself.  I too had dance lessons at Borgo's with my sisters.  I bet many in our class did as well.  Their dance studio on Washington was a staple for more than 70 years.  I sent our older daughter too.  Times change but glad for the memories.

Presenting the Misses Frances and Virginia Borgo. Here is a link on these two amazing women.

Many thanks to all of our veterans in the Class of '63, and also to those who waited at home for our vets to return.  Thankfully everyone in our class came home.  We are proud of you all.

Mary Ann Shirk Hribar,

Mary Ann, I saw this on my daughters Sheltie dog calander and I thought you might enjoy it. How's your puppy search  going?

A dog is the only thing in this old selfish world that loves you more than he loves himself.

Mary Ann Shirk (Hribar)

Tom, I told Dan on Facebook that my four year old grandson told me he will never come to my house again if I get a dog. 😞 I have since found out he is terrified of their friend's large, crazy dog. Maybe I can convince him with a smaller one. I'm keeping an eye out on several rescue sites. All they seem to have available are pit bulls. My almost son in law has a great one but I'm not sure that's what I want.  I guess I'll just be patient. 
Lucia, I love your  Borgo sisters pic  I went there for eights years. That's how I grew to love tap. My dad made me quit in my teens. He thought it was a waste of money. He was right, I could never have been a Rockette but I would have loved to major in dance in college. I guess it's good that Marygrove did not have that major then.  I joined an exercise program on line called Tapfit, exercise while making noise! Nothing could be better.

Happy Birthday Dr. Pam!!  I hope that you have a day as special as you are.  I shall always be thankful for our relationship, especially at that time in my life.

Lucia, the Borgo sisters came to LaSalette too, and tried to teach us how to dance, with mixed success, your pictures stir some old memories.

Mary Ann, dancer nonpareil, you probably would have made an excellent dance instructor yourself but, back then, our society didn't have very broad expectations for girls in the working world.  Meanwhile, if getting your grandson to learn to accept dogs is a priority, how about if you took him where there were puppies, young and small, that he could pick up.  There are few creatures with such persistence and enthusiasm as puppies trying to get close to you.  (Teen age boys notwithstanding!!)

I hope everyone is still healthy and coping well with this "pandemic".  As it says in the Bible - "This, too, shall pass".  I am looking forward to seeing everyone who can make it to our Reunion/Golf outing in August.

Happy birthday, Pam and to our classmates with birthdays in June.  

I want to reinforce what Mike just said about our August golf outing and get together - IT'S ON!  We have made our reservation with Pontiac Country Club for Saturday, August 22.  First tee time is 11:00am.  We are hopeful that things can be quasi-normal by then but, in any event,  golf is ON.  We will creatively and safely figure out how we can socialize after the golf.  SO PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS.  Every effort is being made to be able to celebrate our 75th birthdays together.

How did we all get to 75 this soon?  On the other hand, a lot of us did get to 75!  This sounds like a good reason to raise a glass or two.  Speaking lof golf.  I finally managed to get to a driving range a few days ago.  Nothing like mid 80's and high humidity to make golf balls not listen to what you tell them.  Good thing I still have time to get them in shape.


We are good, no problems.  Hope you all are doing well.

Happy Birthday, Judy Schoen, great grandma!!!  We have been blessed with your coming to Shrine to share your  warm and pleasant smiles with everyone.  You are definitely one of the "good guys" with kindness for one and all.  I am amazed that you had children 20 years apart.  Looking forward to seeing you at our Reunion/Golf Outing in August.

Dave, golf balls are not trainable, nor will they ever listen except to frustrate you by defying your pleas and instructions.  I'll possibly break my habit of talking to them in another 20 years or so.

Merry Unbirthdays to everyone else.

A little something that I just came accross - in the Middle Ages, when the Plague had finally dissapated, there was much celebrating with wine and orgies.  I was just wondering if anyone has anything like this planned for when this pandemic is over.  I'm asking for a friend, of course.

Another birthday which means another excuse to have cake and ice cream. Happy Birthday to Judy and many more to come. Make this your best and enjoy every minute of every day.

We have the memories of by gone days and the joy for the days ahead.

Stay safe and healthy.

Big Jon,

May your day be Happy and many, many more birthdays to come. enjoy the day and be sure you have cake and ice cream, and lots of it.

Happy Birthday, George Karam, we hope that all is well with you and those important to you.  I recall Gerry and I seeing you at the driving range and were marvelling at your ball striking talents.  You said that you weren't hitting the ball the way you wanted to.  Your bad shots would have been good for us.  You should join us for our Reunion/golf gathering this August, we'd like to see you.

Jon, Happy Belated Birthday, hope is was filled with joy.  You can celebrate your Unbirthday along with the rest of us, I'm sure that OB would tell you that cake and ice cream are good for unbirthdays, too.

another year passes by with more good memories and wishing you many more to come.

Our birthdays now are more special than the past and more enjoyable.

I wish you and your family the best for the coming year.

Take care and stay safe.

Tom Wischman,

Is he still with us, haven't heard from him for so long I thought he might be with Murph.

If your here, here's wisching you a happy birthday, eat some cake and ice cream and if we don't hear from you, I won't send greetings next year.

Let us know something, some of us might miss your happy voice.

Happy Birthday Dennis, you always had a smile and an ear for anyone and everyone.  We hope that you, and the lovely Charlotte, enjoy the fireworks and festivities.  We're also looking forward to seeing both of you this August at our Reunion/golf outing.

Happy Birthday, U.S. A.  !!!!!!  To all of you who've been blessed to live in this country May the Fourth be with you!!!!!

I must have been asleep at the wheel.

I apologize and wish Birthday greetings to Chris and Dennis.

Hope your days were filled with fun, love and cake and ice cream and not in that order. Many more to come to both of you and stay safe.

Happy Birthday, Chris both tenacious and charming and doing a bang-up job on the pairings for our Reunion/Golf Outing.  Does that add "match-making" to your resume?  We hope that your day is filled with pleasantries and your year as good as can be.
