Like the Corners of my mind
Misty watered clored memories
of the Way We Were!

Scattered Pictures
of the smiles we left behind
Smiles We gave to one Another
For the Way We Were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell Me, Would We? Could We?

May be beautiful and yet
What is too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget.

So its the laughter
we will remember 
whenever we remember
The Way We Were
The Way We Were!!!!!!!!  

Stay tuned for memories and words!  Coming soon!
2014 Rose Bowl Bound!

2014 Duck Football Season!  What another great Duck Football Season!  Once
again, it was a fantastic time to see old friends and Bendites each football game.
Of course a few of us got the red carpet treatment, courtesy, of Chris and Debbie
Wetle!  Can't thank them enough for hosting the tail gate party each game, and also
for the "Wetle Presidential Suite" at their home.  They are simply awesome, and will love and cherish them both for life!  It is very special to have childhood friends, and your best
friends for a lifetime.  

It was particularly wonderful this Duck season when Steve McClain joined us at 
a Duck game, and Marcia Grote came to town the same weekend!  What a fabulous
weekend of memories that was.  Eugene and Portland was rocking with Bendites.

We wish our beloved Duck many blessings for the Rose Bowl!  We are playing for
the National Title soon!

Blessings to all in 2015!  
PS:  Nice to send some good news for a change!

I received a very special Christmas Card in 2014.  It came from a classmate I have not
seen in 44 years, and it meant the world to me.

"Sending you a Christmas card reminds me of how you have crossed my path and
touched my life.  Warm Wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"

Thank you so very much, it meant the world to me!

Doug Peabody's Memorial Service will be on 8/24/14 from 3-to 8:00 pm at the Overlook House at 3839 N. Melrose.  Dr. Portland, Or. 97237.  There is limited parking, but
Max line is near by.

DOUGLAS Scott Peabody, 62, passed away in one of his favorite spots, his
parents home in Sequim, Wa.; after a battle with liver cancer for four months.

Doug also know by his family as ( Buggy-Dougy, Doug-A-Doo, Dugout, Roger & Rub-A-
Dub) was born in Anchorage, Alaska.  He and his family moved to Bend where he
graduated from Bend High in 1970.  After a few years in Eugene pursing music as
a major, he left for the adventure of working on the Alaska Pipeline in the mid 70's.
He later moved to Portland, where he received his degree in elementary education from
Portland State University.

Doug had many passions including sports, music and literature.  He was very literate
and musical, he was a Jazz DJ, part-owner of Great American Music in Bend (1980),
manager of Music Milennium (1985-1995) and more recently the owner of the
popular Book Store, "The Open Book", in Bend, Or. (1995-2014).  His sports passions
included fleecing his buddies with footall wagers, a yearly March Madness pool for
20 plus friends and family and skiing Mt. Bachelor for many years.

Doug married Sheila Martin and their daughter Alison was born in 1980.  He is
survived by his former wife Sheila; his daughter Alison of Portland; Parents Max
Peabody and his wife Mary; brothers Max Peabody III (Peggy) , Richard (Maloue)
and Wen (Angelina) and his sister Amy Peabody (Joseph Godinet) and his
niece Megan  Peabody and nephew Michael Peabody.

There wil be a Memorial for Doug from 3-8:00 pm on Sunday, 8-24-14 at the Overlook
House, 3839 N. Melrose Dr. Portland, Or. 97237.  

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Oregon Music Hall of Fame would be appreciated
by his family.

Wishing all my old classmates a Wonderful, Merry Christmas, and
many blessings in 2013!

It is the time of year, you really treasure the blessings of family and
friends, and a lifetime of memories.  I have enjoyed every single
Christmas Card because of the thought, time and care put into them.
In this day and age, it is electronic text messages, emails, generic facebook greetings, which usually includes "it is all about me!"

This week, it was wonderful to actually get a plate of home
baked cookies, receive photos of family & friends, have a meal with
just "good quality people", and most of all; being around people who
understand the meaning of the true "Christmas Sprit", and what a gift this special Christmas Holiday is all about.

Take a moment to open the door for someone, call someone you have been meaning to call forever-but life keeps getting in the way,
make a senior day, and drop by-remember you are a step away, but
above all else; just be the best you can be each day.  

Looking forward to a walk in the snow in Bend during the holidays, and remembering the "Way We Were!"

Blessings Always
Your Bearette Bud!
Mr. Magic Mom!
Mr. Magic Mom!
Our beloved Mr. Magic's Mom has received her Angel Wings!
Duane Zanon's mom passed away this last Wednesday, and her service will be
in Bend on April 12, 2013.  Please read the attached obituary for details.
I know Mr. Magic would love to see some of his old classmates, and I know
many would like to pay their respects to his beloved mom Barbara.
Barbara and Kevin Domby's folks were the only parents to make it to our
40th reunion, and darn did they all look great!  Mr. Magic must have done his magic
on his mom.  It was so great to have her join us, and I sure don't have half the
energy she had.
Our prayers and thoughts are with Duane Zanon and his family at this most difficult time.
Our blessings our with them.

I spent some time in Brazil in the 1990's when they had hyperinflation plus they taxed imports at astronomical rates upwards of 100% to protect their economy.Unless you are rich investing in silver is not going to save you but just provide a few months of cushion to get you over a rough spot. All of these pundits that just say invest in bullion and everything will be fine. I say 'hogwash' from first hand experience.People seem to want to take the easy way out and this time there is no easy way out. It's going to require a lot of effort from the normally lazy TV society to put food on the table. What people need to understand is imported items will become significantly more expensive if some type of theoretical currency collapse happens. There will be an immediate need for locally made items which are affordable.What you need is a couple things to survive. Street savvy and a unique skill. Being a diesel mechanic or ability to operate CNC and injection molding equipment or farming are types of skills that will keep you from going hungry.What I noted is due to no one having money the people had very low skill sets at that time compared to the U.S. or Europe. College and trade schools cost money plus trying to get a loan during hyperinflation is impossible. Also a lot of the higher educated groups were trying to leave the country for the U.S. So what happens is the peoples skill sets drops off. Many things that required high level skill sets and specialized licenses required long waits. So unlike the U.S. maybe your high dollar sports car breaks down and instead of having it fixed tomorrow it takes two weeks due to the backlog and lack of mechanics with higher level skills. So instead of selling your furniture to buy silver. Instead sell your furniture and get a skill set that will be in high demand should this theoretical dollar collapse happen. Yes silver is a great item to own but unless you're able to buy $1,000,000 worth its not going to save you for the next 10 years. What will save you is a unique skill set that will be in demand. cialis car i9nsurance

Hello Loren,I would take total advantage of an exotic getaway, and with your schedule you sooooo deserve it! So starting out with my Isotonix, my Cell Labs, my FIXX and my Motives, my Royal Spa, my CORE, cant forget my Fiber and my Bliss, and of course I cant forget my Intense FX (as I will need all the energy that I can possibly get) When I have that covered, I would then bring paper and pen to gather names and contact information, a few Flip Charts, Getting Started Guides, Catalogs, DVDs, as even though it is a vacation, I would still be doing the 3 ft rule! (Never missing an opportunity) And then as far as clothes, I would bring casual and dress clothes and packing the clothes that are upbeat, classy and yet comfortable, as that also gives me energy, and others energy. That appears intelligent yet fun! And you already are/have and appear to possess those qualities!!! So dont change anything about what you are already doing, you are Awesome and one of a kind!!!

Happy First day of winter;-)Good morning! ‘Something’ brought me your material, and reading through your experiences I can agree, there’s a certain lack of ‘love’ in the teachings of Abe.. And it’s never talked about either. Humm. For me I need this element, and I need it reinforced at times. I recently picked up the book-The Power, exactly what I needed along the path of LOA. So much to say, thank you for your input on Abraham. It really helps:) They have brought my consciousness to an unknown level over the years and for that I’m extremely thankful for. But I think I’ll jump off the train and see what else will float my boat. I see you have a few apps. Where I a good place to begin? For a while I was movin an groovin on the Abe guided breathing med’s… And believe the structured breathing excerizes to be pivotal.. Do you offer something similar?? Please let me know as I’m excited about another magic carpet ride!Cheerios!:Jayzer nexium generic cialis

We have lost another classmate.  It is with great sadness that  I pass on the
news of another lost classmate.  Betty Lou Robertson (Olson) passed away

Pancreatic cancer since last Thanksgiving.  Our thoughts and prayers are

Les noted she passed peacefully with a smile on her face.  That is exactly how
I remember Betty from school.  She always had a smile on her face or was

Then & Now!


It seems fitting that I post a poem today on someone's special birthday.
I have had a poem in my possession for 40 plus years, and I can't remember
now exactly why I have it, but I do.  I remember before our 10th reunion
pulling it out and wondering where this Bear was, and hoping they were
doing well.  Tucked it away, you know the drill, somewhere where I thought
I would remember.  Of course, anytime I put something in a special place so
I won't forget where it is, I can't remember...

You mean so very much to me,
And I want you to know
That you are always in my heart,
No matter where I go.

You were always giving, always there
To help, in any way,
The loving things you've done for me,
I never could repay.

I can't imagine what I'd do
without the love you gave.
