On June 4th 2015 Derral graduted from his high school 44 years late. He dropped out of high school in his senior year October of 1669 and joined the Marine Corps to serve in the Viet Nam conflict. Oregon State law allows Veterans who have dropped out of high school during a war peried to serve in a war to apply for and receive their high school diploma. Derral did just that. He applied with the Albany School District and met with the requirements including his scores on milatary intrance exams and he had also obtained a GED Certificate while on active duty. When given the choice of having his diploma mailed to him or to participate in the class of 2015's graduation ceremony, naturally, he choose to participate in the ceremony. For him it was like traveling back in time to the year of 1969. The diploma he recieved was from West Albany High School dated 1969. Derral said he even wore his tassle dated, 1969. Below is a video of the coverage of Derral's late graduation by KMTR News in Eugene, Oregon.

Rick and Jami went to Paris this summer and had a really great time. After Rick's business meetings which lasted a couple of weeks they fly to the UK and stayed in the London area.Jami informed us that they went to all the usual tourist attractions including Big Ben with it's famous British guards that never flinch a muscle no matter what. They enjoyed fine arts and good wine while visiting many of the local musiums.This is a picture of them after they got back. Look closely in the background and you can see Joan Jetts logo. You got it. They went to her concert this summer. We had REO Speed Wagon and Blue Osyter Cult at the Air Show last summer too.
Terry is King of the Drawves! At least in the land of Drakor where he is the leader of the Guild, Elder's of Drakor. Terry is still the same computer geek he has always been. There is always something going on on his multiple screen setup in his home. Terry has played several text based computer games over the years but this one, Drakor, he has been involved with it since the closed beta development when it's creator, Goz, took an old game out of retirement. A year and a half later the game is still going strong. This is a rpg, a text based roll playing game based in an old world atmosphere with drawves, elves, trolls, orcs and many other such creatures. There are many skills to play and develope where one can use the materials gathered in various gathering skills to make many things. Terry has got me hooked on it for a year now. If you try the game make sure to get some pets to help you out.
