After graduating from East, I served an LDS mission in Florida. I supported myself through college by working at Western Airlines ("The only way to fly.") After graduating from the U, I worked in the computer industry. I was a co-owner of I-O Corporation. With offices in England, and Brussels, I had the wonderful experience of conducting business internationally. After retirement from I-O, I helped develop a Provo based start up computer company. Now that I'm really retired, I found and bought the 1952 MG TD I owned while attending East High. I use to park it on the hill east of the school so I could look at it from my classroom. I am enjoying my grandchildren, playing golf, fly fishing, traveling, dabbling in British sports cars restoration, and serving as a sealer in the Salt Lake Temple.

Thanks Gordon, excellent comments: that is how I like remembering my time at East.

I had a locker at East High.  That was about it.  As I look back, I really loved attending and cheering at our exciting football and basketball games.  I felt the thrill of our energetic pep rallies.  I marveled at the high level of academics and leadership that was present at East.  Athletes like Craig Tomomotsu were my heroes.  Cheerleaders like Larry Stevens were my heroes. Scholars like Craig Sudbury were my heroes. And, student body officers like Jim Brinton were my heroes. For me, I like to remember my heroes who have passed on in the confines of the hallowed halls of East High School where my locker once stood.

Great time fly fishing in B.C. Canada. It is our annual trek to Moose Camp where catching trout on the top with large dry flies is generous to say the least.

Five years ago I located and bought the same MG I owned during my senior year at East High. I still have fond memories of driving the car to school with the top down and the wind blowing through my bangs. Finding and owning my car for a second time was a thrill. However, the first thing I noticed was it drove much slower and was more rigid than I remembered from my days at East. And then I thought, "Could it be that I've become much slower and more rigid."

This year at British Field Day car show, I showed both my MG and Austin Healey "Bugeye" Sprite. What made the event really enjoyable was our very own East High alumni Steve Smith was there showing his beautiful MGA coupe. People loved our cars and a few made offers buy both Steve's and my MG. So, I decided to sell. My wife thought I was heartless and accused me of doing something akin to selling my own dog. With some regret and hiding a small tear from a few onlooking neighbors, I loaded the MG on a trailer and sent it to a new home. It didn't stop there. Now I'm selling my "Bugeye". Don't get me wrong. I love British sports cars and they are still in my blood so my plan is to find a "Big" Healey 3000.

The reason for this post is not to get the guilt of selling an old friend off my chest (okay maybe that's part of it) but to remind us of the wonderful cars of the Sixties. Those cars are not only beautiful but trigger fond memories of our years at East High.

You could not be in the class of '65 without loving the Beatles. For a few hours we went back in time with McCartney.
