Birthday flight from Maui to Moloka’i and back for Cal Delta brothers
Left to right: Dennis O’Shea, San Diego State ’66, Jerry Hutter, San Diego State ’65, Duke Lembeck, San Diego State ’66
It was a birthday mini reunion for Dennis O’Shea. Dennis flew part-way, Duke flew part, and we cheated death again (not at all new to the three perpetrators). It was REEEALLY bumpy along the world’s highest sea cliffs, dropping our chartered 4-seat Cessna 300-500 feet in 3-5 seconds a few times! Needless to say, we had a great time — and turned around & did it again!

60 years later, a SigEp anniversary
It was a glorious day with white fluffy clouds in a Colorado blue sky. The Boulder Flatiron Mountains were the perfect setting with the University of Colorado’s massive flagstone architecture at the base of the rock slabs. The sun was starting to set and the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity brothers were driving their cars up the small grass slope leading to the SigEp house. Complementing the night would be the arrival of the Alpha Omicron Pi sorority.
That day, September 16, 1956, I met my wife in Boulder, Colorado on the front lawn of the SigEp house. Jane and I celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary on July 1, 2018.

Looks like its time for us to stand out as being different again! Thank you for being brave and advocating for change.
