"Nice pictures. Not many from my class. Guess I will have to start attending to take theirs. LOL. I do think my hubby would enjoy coming now. He probably know more people than me since he has a handyman service here in Washougal. People really like…"
I came home to Clark County 11 years ago and love being here. My 4 siblings and spouses have always been here and it is so nice to get together with them frequently. I am married to Roger Bradford whom I met in Walla Walla 18 years ago and have been happily married to every since. I have 5 children, 3 step children, 13 grandchildren, 9 step grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Roger and I manage Cascade Park Mini Storage in Vancouver. My life is all about family. But love the computer and this is a really neat spot. Washougal has changed so much. When the old Thriftway was downtown you could usually run into old friends but seems not so much anymore. I still love the town though!
Hi Nancy I thought it was so nice to see you. I didn't feel good that day upset stomach and didn't know if I was hungry or coming down with something. You sure look good. It is nice to see our classmates. I see Alma , Darlene, Pam Mason, Ron Shurm Karen Dolan , Eldon and a few more at the oldtimers meeting getting ready for picnic and cruise in. If you are up this way, it would be fun to see you and help with input or opinion. Sure have cute grandchildren. Have a good day. Oh Mary Bedell and Pat Bates and I email alot they are good.. Patti
Hi, Nancy...It is really fun to reconnect with old (did I really say that?) friends. Just scratch the "old". lol I moved back to this area about 13 yrs ago, and, believe me, I never thought that I'd be back. :-) I have one son who lives tooooo far away (Phoenix) so that makes it a bit harder to see my two granddaughters, but we go as often as possible. I still work, so that gets in my way of doing the things I REALLY want to do, but maybe sometime soon I can retire. It would be really fun to get together sometime to visit! Thanks again for giving me a shout out.
That is neat. I live in Camas by Crown park. I am married and am retired. So is my husband Gary,, I have 4 boys and 6 grandchildren and 4 step grandchildren.. I enjoy life and love kids.. I see Darlene Ritchey, Karen Beadle and Pam Mason alot.. Of course Maiden Names.. Hope to see you or get another emails...Thanks and God Bless Patti
Nancy...Being surrounded by family is a wonderful blessing and it's clear that you have been richly blessed. I hope though that you can free yourself to visit and interact here on occasion....We're really happy that you signed on.
Gary Shaw, Washougal Class of 1959 is in the process of authoring a set of 6 books, titled The Eric English Chronicles, set in and around the Camas-Washougal area from the early 1960's through the present. I have attached a file that he sent me prefacing information about the books as well as introducing and relating a little about the main characters.... Also included is an outline of the happenings in the 19th Chapter of Book 1 intended for the publishers. It is not the chapter itself. Here now is the author. Click on the orange to open.

Dick Schaefer (WHS '55) has written a new book that he has published on Amazon. Its' title is The Final Conflict, and a download to your Kindle is available for $4.99. If you do not have a Kindle, a free Kindle application is available for downloading to your PC that will allow you read the book on it. Simply click on this link to get to Dick's book: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AJB3SD6
Here is a brief synopsis of the book.
A small town man is thrust into 11 days of conflict over Christmas of 1972, against the best air defense structure ever faced by strategic bombers to achieve President Nixon’s "Peace with Honor" exit strategy against North Viet Nam.
This is the Viet Nam "12 O’Clock High" told from the standpoint of the crew force flying the mission: telling the TRUE story----not the written history documented in the archives of the Strategic Air Command.
Dick informs me that his earlier book Mill Town is still available by mail for $15 including shipping from his address. Scroll down to the bottom of this main page for more information.
The following has nothing whatsoever to do with Washougal senior alumni or nostalgia. It is a small widget that connects every 10 seconds with a random webcam across the world. Some will work, some will not, but when they do, they work well, delivering real time moving images of sights around the world.
Simply click on the lettering name just below the image (not on the image itself as that will open an ad) and the webcam will open in a new larger window. It may take as much as a half minute to begin but when and if it does, it can be very rewarding....it does require a Java application which, if you don't have already, will be offered as a download right then and there.....it also works better with the Firefox browser than it does with Internet Explorer.
