    We only have two seasons here in the Pacific Northwest… wet & dry.

    Hi, Tom… Blast from the past. It’s me, Arlene. I rented you and Andy an apartment in Long Beach back in 1993 and was his girlfriend for a short stint… remember?

    My condolences on the death of your mother..we have something in common..my mom died suddenly on May 18th, 2006. It happened around noon. She hadn’t gone to work for three days and was just feeling weak. My brother made her eat a little something and helped her back into bed. As he was doing that, she lost consciousness ..it sounds like the same chaotic scene, 911, paramedicas..she died before she reached the hopsital. I had so much to say here but now I’m finding that the words won’t come…I’ll write again another time..crisangela@aol.com.

    Hey Tom,
    Gosh, I am so embarrassed to read what you wrote! Am I that obvious??!! Your website is impressive! Write me…

  10. Tom says:

    Thanks Amy!

  11. Tab. says:

    You’re flaking, aren’t you? You’re not coming to Arnold and Kellie is expecting you…

  12. stefanie says:

    yep–forever you will be “tee”, she will be “deborah” and I will continue to wonder who this Debbie person is or who Tom is when I’m around people who know you both as “grown ups” and I will probably look just as wierd to those people when I use the other names. Oh, well…I live in Idaho now…there’s lots of wierd things about me now. Tee, I got email again finally–bandscoleman@netzero.net. I had the baby–a boy, born September 20th (mine and Bran’s 3 year anniversary–no joke) named Kenneth Bryan. He’s cool. He’s a tank–weighing in now at 10 pounds. Miss you surf cuz. Happy Thanksgiving 🙂

  13. stef says:

    Tee, I like seeing the smile on your face, the twinkle in your eye, and hearing your laughter–yes, even though I’m like 1000 miles away I can still see and hear those things. I miss you surf cuz! stef

  14. stef says:

    Tee, i have a blogger account “remember when” but I don’t know how to find out the address (I’m a loser at computers)

    My comment: Ah, the days of golf…do you remember when Uncle Hi and Paw-Paw and Uncle Cecil would talk about their golf games a lot when we were little and we never got what they were talking about and why they talked about it? I think you get it now 🙂 I like driving the cart–does that count?

  15. Tom says:
